It’s not like we’re purposefully serving up so much scatological sports news, but this one was too good to, um, “pass” up.
AWFUL ANNOUNCING releases video (passed along by REAL CLEAR SPORTS) of ESPN soccer announcer Adrian Healey, who came up with a comical comment during Friday’s Netherlands-France match-up.
Wesley Sneijder had just notched a goal for the Nederlanders, the fourth & final dagger into the French. Then thinking quickly, Healey let loose with this fun phrase:
Very clever. But Adrian probably has no idea how amusing it really is.
In many reputable social circles (like sports bloggers & readers), the term “dutch oven” refers to the act of placing your bed partner’s cranium beneath the sheets while releasing some unpleasant flatulence.
In other words - farting on your girl’s (or guy’s) head under the covers.
Then again, maybe Adrian new exactly was he was taking about, and was making a spry comment on France’s stinky play this day.
Still, pretty amusing. And what’s even more hilarious? The match took place at a facility called Wankdorf Stadium.
The comedy just doesn’t stop in Euro 2008!
