A couple of comments from former All Black now commentator, Murray Mexted:

"Everybody knows that I have been pumping Martin Leslie for a couple of seasons now"

"I don't like this new law, because your first instinct when you see a man on the ground is to go down on him"

Ah there are so many quote from Murray...Not one race goes by without him making at least one mistake but he is still a great commentator.

No discussion of this nature can be complete without the immortal cricket commentary: "The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey"

Here's the most common thing said by English Commentators at England international football matches. At France 98' I counted it 6 times in ONE match.

"and its JUST like 1966!"

And 10 minutes later:

"That goal could have been just like 1966"

Half time:

"A great first half, just like 1966, right?"

etc.


And of course, the one I hear most often:

"AND ITS DISASTER FOR SCOTLAND!!"

So is that: "And it's disaster for Scotland: Sixchan's back!!:eek:"

I'm off to Edinburgh for a long weekend tomorrow so I'll keep my eyes open for neds, as Curt Sibling never stops going on about.

Well on a similar note, the Russian football team Fakel Voronezh are changing their name because they have won exactly fakel.
But there are no such plans for the Spanish team Osasuna, which means something rather naughty in Russian. :D

You'll be pretty safe in Edinburgh, most neds inhabit their territory, Glasgow, and their breeding ground, Castle Greyskull.

To see neds, buy a Scottish TV guide and look for "Chewin' the Fat". At one point there will be a sketch with two Scottish country guys doing a TV program, and the neds will do somthing to them like pee in the river they're drinking from saying somthing like:

"Ho! You're drinkin' oor pish ya couple a' fannies!"

They are neds, and must be destroyed.

Surely that should be "was a great commentator".
He retired at the end of last season as I recall. I hate motor racing though.

Ah yes but he may still do some commentating in his spare time...

Like in that Tango advert? Yeah, that would be quite amusing if it really was a commentator commentating on everyday things rather than some bozo the ad people think has mass-market appeal for the "young people".
Over to you Murray....:
"And I'm doing my shopping, I've cleared the difficult fruit and veg section and am moving onto frozen produce while negotiating the aisles with the usual finesse. I've had some difficulty with my front left wheel but a quick pitstop after the bakery hairpin will put that right and I'll be in contention with Mrs Jones again..."

I could add one from Australian Rules Football, the commentator was Jack (Captain Blood) Dyer:

"And his hands reach out for the ball like a giant pair of testicles..."

And a new one from last night:

Bob Costa during the Olympics opening show:
"You know Kattie, it's never good when chased by giant icicles."

This was one of many stupids sayings that evening, but this one stood out.
