Broadcasting Idiocy

Perhaps this should have been entitled, "Are they still at war with the English language?"

How many times have you heard broadcasters use the term "good success", as in "they're having good success with the dribble-drive offense." Or, how many times have you heard the term "good win," as in, "The 76ers got a good win last night in Boston."

Okay, folks, riddle me this: Is there such as thing as "bad success?" Is there such a thing as a "bad win" (and, no, Greek mythology enthusiast, let's keep the discussion of Pyrrhic victories out of this blog)?

I was just wondering.
