The Thrilla in Mannilla


Postby Snorvey » November 14th, 2017, 9:53 am

...BT were showing a re-run of the classic Ali v Frazier fight last night.

And epic viewing it was too. The brutal terrier like style of Frazier against the flowing grace and stinging jabs of Ali made for compelling viewing.

....but you know what the best thing was?

The almost complete lack of commentary. Instead the viewer was left to enjoy the action without some eedjit talking / screetching / bellowing over every single little thing - normally with a co-'expert' eedjit in tow.

Honestly, it was like a breathe of fresh air.

You're getting grumpy and bitter about a breath of fresh air?

What is the world coming to?
