And the winner is…

August 13, 2008

I’ve heard a football commentator call “a head-high tackle to the solar-plexus”. But that was in the 1970s and we’ve come a long way since then.

And I’ve recently read a guy quoting his father’s opinion, “The Cadillac is the Rolls Royce of motor cars.”

But I reckon an Olympic swimming commentator scooped the pool with this one. “OK, the gloves are off, she’s tackled her opponents head on in a runaway victory and left them all floundering.”

Fair enough, he had one aqautic reference in there. But the rest is a masterpiece of fabrication. Somebody is paying this guy to say things like this. What a wonderful world we live in.
