BBC1…Match Of The Day [Football Speak]

1 Dec

There are many things to love about football but one thing it does not get enough kudos for is unintentionally re-inventing the English language. Take today for instance, Chelsea had just defeated Southampton 3-1 and the highlights were shown on Match Of the Day 2 on BBC1.

One of the scorers in that match was Chelsea defender Gary Cahill who scored the first of  Chelsea’s three goals. Cahill had not scored in a while and when reminded of this fact in the post-match interview replied how he was “glad to get this duck of his back“.

I can’t help but feel this particular metaphor does not fit the bill…:-)

Michael Owen's spectacular moustache.

I presume this is for Movember or it could be Michael Owen is audtioning for the Cheshire franchise of YMCA.

He was proudly sporting this today on BBC’s Match of Day.
