* From ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'', in one episode John and Sarah are watching a chess game. When Sarah asks him to "explain what she's seeing", John replies that one of the players has just captured the other's queen, causing Sarah to demand "English, please!" Apparently, basic chess rules are far too technical for [[ViewersAreMorons the average woman]] Sarah Connor.

->'''Jason''': Joe Montana fades back to pass. He sees Jerry Rice open in the end zone!\\ '''Peter''': Wrong team. [[note]]Rice and Montana played together for the 49ers for a while, but Montana was playing for the Chiefs at the time the strip was written.[[/note]]\\ '''Jason''': He sees Derrick Thomas open in the end zone!\\ '''Peter''': Wrong position. [[note]]Thomas was a linebacker with the Chiefs. Since that's a defensive position, he wouldn't have been on the field at the same time as Montana.[[/note]]\\ '''Jason''': He sees Wayne Gretzky open in the end zone!\\ '''Peter''': Wrong sport. Moron. [[note]]Wayne Gretzky played hockey; the rest of this conversation is about American football.[[/note]]\\ '''Peter''' (after Jason leaves, looking at a power strip): So is this a hard drive or a modem?

** The 1990 Julio César Chávez–Medrick Taylor fight when referee Richard Steele declared Chávez the winner by TKO with two seconds left in the final round. Since many observers believed Taylor was ahead on points and would have won had the clock run out, they were appalled that Steele didn't check the clock and just let it run. But Steele's job was only to see if Chávez's last minute assault left Taylor unable to continue ''regardless'' of the time, and since Taylor didn't respond to Steele ''twice'' asking if he was okay, it was the right call. Furthermore, when asked by Larry Merchant, Taylor was out of it that he said Steele ''didn't even ask him any questions''. Also, for the entire time that Steele was giving him a standing eight-count and asking him not once, but ''twice'' if he was OK, as mentioned earlier, Taylor never let go of the ropes after he pulled himself up.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Miss Brooks' knowledge of sports ranges from the excellent to the ridiculously inadequate. This is problematic, as the episode has several sports episodes, usually involving recurring character Stretch Snodgrass.

* TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''WarriorsOfVirtue,'' where he gets so bored with that he cuts away to a Chicago Bears game. This may be ConvictionByContradiction, but not many sports fans shout "Go! Go! Go!" when their team is on defense.
