I think every sport has its greatest pundit. A great golf pundit can not be compared to a great rugby pundit. I don't follow any sports except for U.S. college basketball. In that world Dick Vitale is head and shoulders above all others.
Let's rephrase that shall we, America "hasn't " got talent, lol.
I remember when the hoffmeister came down to New Zealand, one of our radio stations there, had arranged a competition.
In this competition, it was simply to gauge what the public thought of him, the winner of the comp said "he could have been an actor", I thought this to be very funny, as did the dee-jays, and the hoffmeister himself.
My favourite sports pundit would be none other than Murray Mexted, the myopic rugby commentator from our Country, the Saffas and the wombats friggin hate him, which is more the reason why I like him, our players can do no wrong, and their shit doesn't stink, we are never wrong, and the other team is always the enemy!
The good thing about this guy is he broadcasts his opinion in this way at every chance, and there is simply no respite and let-up for anyone but the All Blacks...and any other local team he happens to be supporting......i digress by saying, if only the guy wore an eye-patch over one of his eyes, it would bode well with his personality! :-)
I miss Johnners - anyone who can come up with "The bowler's Holding the batsman's Willey" must be up there.
The darts commentator Sid Waddell is my favourite, especially as a fellow north-easterner I love his wisecracks. Here are a couple:
"Trying to win a leg off Phil Taylor is like wrestling King Kong for a banana"
"There couldn't be more excitement in here if Elvis walked in and asked for a chip sandwich"
I don't know Sid Waddell but his wisecracks you posted above are really funny. Especially the "wrestling King Kong for a banana." (^o^)
sid waddell is Mr Darts! i have to agree is his very funny
@ Musicjunkie Hang on mate, (can't remember if you are a cricket fan, nevermind) what about the late the great, "Richie Benaud", cricket wouldn't be the same without him, the other one I like (because the guy is an utter nunce) is the Indian guy (forgotten his name, please insert here) you know the one, that talks in tongues, no one undertands him.
Finally the black girl from South Africa , who commentates on the cricket, she has massive norks, and a cute face, but what is more impressive than her physical presence, is the fact for a woman, she knows what she is talking about, and exudes so much sex appeal, well done to her!
that's a tough one! but Chris Kamara is certainly the funniest one. he cracks me up!
