Sports commentators are renowned for their ‘one offs’, often spoken in the heat of the moment. Today, a pearler at the end of the European Cup Soccer Final in Austria. Spain beat Germany by one goal to nil. During the bedlam following the match, while teams were waiting to ascend the podium and receive their medals, one commentator was discussing the Spaniard’s previous achievements. In response, Irish-American commentator Tommy Smyth was heard to say:
“It’s not just history, though, you have to have the players………and the players have to show up.”
Rock on, Tommy!
