Wow, I'm unobservant. I didn't realise the Warriors were playing in black and grey now. I think of them as playing in blue.

I can't say i've heard an American butcher Toyota, unless i'm butchering it too.

How do they supposedly say it?

Black since 2001 or 2002.

The CEO says no more black home jersey as of next year. I can't wait.

Clarkson imitated it as something like Taah-yo-tuh. Imagine a serious Southern drawl on the first syllable.

Oh yeah, i can maybe get that. Sounds like an accent thing moreso though.

Yeah, you could differentiate between those that are actually pronounced wrong (Nissan, Mazda, Jaguar) and those that were more of an accent issue (Toyota, Mitsubishi). But since Clarkson's known for mocking American accents too, I think the distinction's moot.

I think my distaste for America has nothing on Clarkson's!

Well, the thread's dying. So here's my notes on LM's tracklist thus far!

1. The Moody Blues – “Dawn: Dawn Is A Feeling” – Days Of Future Passed (3:49)
Alright. Unobjectionable. Starts the tracklist nicely enough.

2. The Magic Numbers – “Mornings Eleven” – The Magic Numbers (5:32)
Singer's voice is truly irritating and lacking control.

3. Prince – “Play In The Sunshine” – Sign O The Times (5:05)
Sort of irritating but far preferable to that woeful song in LMP's list.

Segue into Grass works well.

4. XTC – “Grass” – Skylarking (3:06)
Not a bad song. Enjoyed listening to it.

5. The Flaming Lips – “Buggin” – The Soft Bulletin (3:16)
One of the less objectionable Flaming Lips songs I've heard and I kind of enjoyed it. Still not terribly good though.

6. The Velvet Underground – “Sweet Jane” – Loaded: Fully Loaded Edition (4:07)
Eh ... kinda bothersome on its own but it fits well.

7. Van Morrison – “Brown Eyed Girl” – Blowin’ Your Mind (3:03)
Huh, I didn't realise this was Van Morrison. I've never been that keen on it and don't know if it'd bother with it out of context, but it's working here.

More LM commentary.

8. Supergrass – “Alright” – Supergrass Is 10: Best Of 1994-2004 (3:03)
This tracklist is so fucking summery! This is just driving home the general atmosphere. I'd love some death metal to be right around the corner.

It's not often the Warriors are down 36-14 and the reason i turn the TV off is the commentary.

No, because i don't think Channel 9 know the Warriors exist. I'd prefer Channel 9 to this drivel.


6 on 3 overlap, of course the winger has to come in. They put a grubber behind him and he gets bullshit about how it's always so easy to score tries through kicks against him, not to mention the usual bullshit about them being flamboyant islanders who run out of puff after 15 minutes etc.

But tonight has been a particularly disgraceful effort. I honestly think they read the thread of Warriors stereotypes on leagueunlimited and decided to run through all of them just to piss us off.

Hey, Ian, see the IPL's already under way? McCullum slugged 158 not out off 73 for Kolkata.

Wow. But that's Aussie commentary for you. Just mindless cliches and drivel. I don't know how Richie Benaud became so fucking good with all these hacks around him in commentary boxes nationwide.
