Football shorts – 3

12 Jun

Watching England vs USA tonight.

Score is 1-1 with a few minutes left and this Gonk of a commentator says:

“The next goal could be decisive”!

Boy, those TV sports guys really earn their money, don’t they?

    “One of the reasons Arnie [Palmer] is playing so well is that before each tee shot, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them.”

    “And there goes Juan Torena, down the back straight – opening his legs and showing his class.”

    “Aw, isn’t that nice – the wife of the Cambridge president is kissing the cox of the Oxford crew.”

    “Strange – in slow motion replay, the ball seems to hang in the air for even longer.”

    “Julian Dicks is everywhere – it’s like they’ve got eleven Dicks on the field.”

    And of course, the legend that is Murray Walker: “The lead car is absolutely unique – except for the one behind it, which is identical.”

    I looked up “Gonk” on Wikipedia (being far too young to remember them) and understand that it was a term meaning “hip & trendy” in the 1960s.

    So you were being nice to the commentators for a change!

      Nice to footie commentators? ME?

      NO! That will NEVER happen!

      I MEANT “Gonk” in the sense of “rotund, hairy object, stuffed with rags where its brains should be”!

      Besides, I lived through the sixties and I don’t remember the usage you state – but that’s Wiki for you!


      PS. Appreciate the comment and love your vaguely naughty-sounding name.
