Our rowers are … flying?

How about this classic commentary during the Olympic men’s fours rowing tonight?

“Here come the Aussies. They’re absolutely flying … The French are tiring … At the top of the screen the Americans are also flying … the New Zealanders are flying as well … and the Irish, they’re coming home strong … and in the Aussies in lane 3, they are flying home.”

Nick Green was a brilliant athlete as a member of the Awesome Foursome, but as a special comments man?

Special = retarded.

    Perhaps the convict rowers (and cyclists and other athletes) should hitch hike a plane ride. That way they may be able to get an improved rear view of the poms racing away to another medal.

    BTW – how is your RL team going?
