Sports analysis of man who won’t share ice-cream at the Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers game
BRITISH sporting coverage is lousy compared to what you can see in the States. There’s no forced boys-club bon homie, instead, you get a dizzying amount of statistics for the nerds, and mind-bending irreverence for the casual viewer. Oh, and their sports documentaries (as seen with ESPN’s ’30 for 3o’ series and all those great NFL films) are unparalleled.
Today, we focus on irreverence.
During a basketball game between Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers, cameras picked up a man who refused to share his ice-cream with his girlfriend.
Scarfing a mint choc-chip ice cream (the most ’80s flavour ever, so well done that man), the chap in question finds his gal attempting to have a little of his chilly treat.
However, he’s not having any of it.
And so, NBA TV’s Isaiah Thomas and Chris Webber did a play-by-play back in the studio, complete with on-screen graphics and the kind of chortling that livens up the stiffness of sports coverage.
Not that anyone cares, but The Pacers won the game 95-73. Now, let us focus on what is really important, and see a man not sharing his ice-cream.
