Sean Kelly just called Kenny Elissonde "Ken-YAY ILL-son"
I don't like Carlton Kirby he is just annoying but at least Eurosport don't have these fools on the salary list PHIL LIGGETT AND POUL SHERWIN they are the dumbest in all commentary and should be banned from every TV-station.the delgados said:My guy screwed up, no doubt about it.barmaher said:I usually stick up for the guy, but he has gotten a lot worse at calling sprint finishes.
But he immediately owned up and apologized for his mistake.
I don't blame the guy for taking a nap after trying to fill hours of dead air. Granted, he chose the wrong time to fall asleep,
That said, name another older cycling commentator who hasn't screwed up after calling several years of cycling races. Moreover, name one person who wouldn't fall asleep at the helm now and then.
Let's face it, folks. Most bike races are boring to watch.
Totally agree....I watched the entire stage on Sunday on Eurosport as itv4 didnt show it....I then watched the itv 4 highlights and it was in another league - Millar is so good at telling you what the riders are thinking, being told on race radio etc etcInterestedSpectator said:I've just watched the ITV4 summary programme and the commentary of Boulting and Millar on the final climb was simply brilliant, compared with the the Eurosport one. Boulting had remembered who had gone ahead from the break and so could name them as they were passed by the pursuers.
The ES couple were floundering most of the time. It's unfortunate, as both ES men are very nice people, but it just was so.

BigMac said:First Kirby intervention on the GP de Wallonie broadcast is about how the riders are going through a beer region and how he loves beer.
Edit: 10 minutes in and he just tipped Reichenbach for the win. You can't make this stuff up.
