I really don't care much for football, but the grand final is always a great opportunity to pick up some fantastic commentator quotes, like these ones:
Before the game:
"Port will be playing keepings off with the ball"
I assumed they'd be playing football. Silly me.
During the game:
"Back in '95 the cats overcooked it"
.... uh huh
As a player's about to kick a goal:
"This is a moment he'll remember for the rest of his life... the crowd ringing in his ears... he'll tell his grandkids about this... oh, he missed it."
Yeah, not too sure he'll tell his grandchildren about that particular event.
After watching a player get tackled around his waist and drop to the ground, both players spooning each other:
"Great camera angle there. Do you want some company?"
Gotta love sports progressive attitude towards sexuality.
As it becomes clear that Port is definitely going to lose:
"It's a total Power blackout."
Brilliant. Pure genius. I love puns.
After Geelong won:
"What's it all about Alfie? It's about premierships."
Not too sure that was the original meaning of the song...
