The Top 5 Sports Commentary Moments

A week ago, a British sports commentator was fired because of a sexist comment made when he believed the microphone to be off. The story was widely covered around the world and shows that being a sports commentator comes with its own set of challenges and responsibilities. Fortunately the profession also offers some very unique opportunities. While some of the best sports commentators are genuinely admired and appreciated for the drama, humor and passion they bring to the game, the very best of them are simply never forgotten!

What defines great sports commentary? Simply sharing your insights and knowing when to shut-up are clearly not good enough. Truly memorable commentary, the kind that firmly engraves itself in our collective memory, can only stands out because when the commentator is as passionate about the game as the audience itself.Some commentators are never forgotten, because their words were (almost) as memorable and inspirational as the events they covered. Below is a Top Five of some of the most iconic sport commentary ever. Some was given before I was even born but most certainly deserves its place in this top 5!
