Perhaps they sent him to the shooting in the hope of a 'mishap'?

Late last night he did a feature on the womens trap, it was without doubt the most sarcastic thing at the olympics that I have ever heard, he got away with murder.

Bloody hilarious!

The commentary teams they've got at the olympics often know nothing about the sport their commentating on - the canoeing commentator was sh!t - on the first run he thought the British girl had made a mistake by going backwards through one gate - at least on the second run someone had had the decency to point out that it was quicker that way. D'oh!

I thought that Craig Doyle - the travel presenter - was funny when he was introducing the boxing and stumbled through two really long foreign names, one was from Mexico & one from Hungary... it's great to see these presenters well out of their depth (and Suzi Perry who should be on telly more often :wink: ).

In the swimming semi final of the backstroke (200M) as the british guy came in third the commentator shouted, "he has bronze!"

Stupid twat.....

The funniest thing i've ever heard, commentary wise, was Darts - on the radio - in the Falkland Islands......LOL - they couldn't even see teh board from where they were sitting and as teh games went on they got more and more sozzled with booze!!!! :lol:
