I Love Him
Although the Dockers/Eagles game on the weekend was over by halftime, the last 3 minutes provided some fantastic soundbites from the commentators. Lucky, because the rest of the game they were shocking. Anyway:
"Oh, he's a great young player. I love him."
"Love's a strong word."
Beautiful. Winks in the shower room, playful towel fights, an accidental brush by the lockers. Footy fags.
The second line was either opportunistic rehearsal, or a gem of on-the-spot wit. Ben Cousins eluding a Matthew Carr tackle:
"Cousins runs away from Carr... been a bit of that lately."
Classic. Benny, you're a dog.
