This announcer has no clue who Kobe Bryant is

King Ing August 1, 2011 3

Manchester United and Barcelona played a friendly soccer match over the weekend to the delight of many fans in the DC area. One of those fans in attendance was Kobe Bryant. He was there as the global sponsor for Turkish airlines Besiktas (who sponsored the event).

As Kobe headed toward the field for the halftime entertainment, the cameras panned to him. As most people quickly realized who he was, this ManU announcer had no clue. The TV analyst wonder if one of the most popular atheletes in the world played “netball.” What exactly is netball?

His reaction once his partner told him who he was is priceless.

    Netball is a women’s sport played in Commonwealth countries, the world championship was recently won by Australia, who defeated New Zealand in overtime in an entertaining final. The commentator was having a dig at basketball, intimating it’s a game for girls – his opinion, not mine. Male athletes who aren’t considered tough are often told that they should go and play netball instead…

    Thanks for the info, Gavin. Of course, that makes the commentator sound even more stupid, but, there you go…
