From left to right on your radio dial? Um, not for me.
Since listening to the NFL on XM/Sirius (because my wife and I have chosen not to have cable or satellite or even rabbit ears) every week, I've learned one of my pet peeves about football radio announcers is how they'll mention a player is throwing, kicking or passing "from left to right on your radio dial."
First, how do they know I'm not sitting on the other side of the stadium? Maybe it's right to left for me.
Second, the player isn't throwing, kicking or passing on the radio dial either. The player is throwing, kicking or passing on the field.
Do you have any pet peeves when it comes to radio or even TV announcers?
