OOPS! (or "Double the fun"!)

Let's all cheer up at the recollection of those in the media who don't always get it right.

Racing commentator watching jockey Tony McCoy in a formidable lead: "Tony has a quick look between hisย 

legs and likes what he sees."

Interviewer asking racing driver Ralf Schumacher at a Grand Prix: "What does it feel like being rammed up the

backside by Barrichello?"

Racing pundit Brough Scott on a new stand at Doncaster racecourse: "My word, look at that magnificent erection."

Steve Ryder covering a US Masters Golf Tournament.ย  "Ballesteros felt much better today after a 69."

Jockey Willie Carson telling Claire Balding how jockeys prepare for a big race.ย  "They usually have four or

five dreams a night about coming from different positions."

Chris Tarrant discussing the first Who Wants to Be A Millionaire' winner Judith Keppel.ย  "She was

practising fastest finger first by herself in bed last night."

.........................................Now, come on, don't you feel just that bit better now?!

Then there was the pundit chatting about relays with champion
runner Phil Redmond.
"Well, Phil, tell us about your amazing third leg."
- and.....
Richie Benaud commenting during a British Masters golf tournament - "Notices are appearing at courses telling golfers not to lick their balls on the green." ๐Ÿ˜‹
The media moral is plain to see
For those who talk to you and me -
To prevent your meaning heading south
Engage brain before operating mouth!

Good golly! I'm discovering
A thing, not one but two
That cricket's full of raunchiness
Ring-a-ding-a-doo

Told to me by WOLer
Poet-Note MC
An expert on all raunchiness
Dingle dongle dee

I also seem to remember David Coleman, the doyen of Colemanballs, saying of the Cuban runner, Alberto Juantereno, โ€œ he only has to open his legs to show his classโ€.

JC - I will bow to your reversal of my classification about batsman
and bowler. Cheers for the correction.

Please note that I intentionally omitted the legendary line attributed
to dear departed "Johnners" while commentating on a test match
and mentioning the names of the West Indian batsman and the
English bowler together in a riotous coupling. For younger
readers it is probably the most famous sentence in the history of cricket commentary..

MC feeling bit better now
Not what it used to be
My 'rections lost it's fiery glow
Magnificence did flee
