One of Phil's best lines was during the Tour Down Under this week when he talked about how when Koalas mate, they make really strange noises.

Fans of Eurosport in the 80's and 90's will remember David Duffield, the best (English speaking) cycling commentator ever, and he himself had his own dictionary of "Duffieldisms". Oh, and he wasn't the tool that Liggett became.

From 1998. "Who the hell is going to chase???" Classic Duffield.

That's an apparently fairly common superstition/weather forecast, not some unique Liggetism.

Though I did laugh when I heard him say it. Last years Tour, right?

Lol
I was raised in the u.s. Midwest...and cows lying down indicated bad weather coming...prolly elsewhere in the world as well

But when wacky Phil says things they take on a life of their own
