Okay, Okay, Here’s The Video Of That Horrible Track And Field Announcer

I have been receiving dozens of emails here at the Sportress today requesting that I write something about the video depicting the epic struggles of British announcer Ortis Deley during the telecast of the 2011 World Track and Field Championships. So here it is. Enjoy it. I do have to admit, the video is delightfully – yet awkwardly – intoxicating.

So, there you have it. I expect that will put an end to the incessant emails. I guess what I am getting at is this: stop emailing me, Mom. Once would have been enough. Sheesh.

Oh, and by the way: Deley was canned for his performance. Poor guy. At least he will live on in internet infamy. It’s not the most esteemed thing, but it is something to hang your hat on. Which is nice.
