Why Life Is Sometimes More Fun Inside My Head

What the radio announcer said: "Henry defeats three Madrid defenders, fires into the goal, past the keeper. Arsenal have gone up one to nil!"

What I heard: "Henry defeats three midget defenders..."

What I pictured in my head: A towering French giant kicking a soccer ball into the net while three midgets wriggle in a heap on the ground. Picture Goliath meets and the Lollipop Gang.

LOL - I had something similar with the winter olympics on in the background today. The commentator said "oh she's smashed into the gate with her tips". I heard "oh she's smashed into the gate with her...." well - you can imagine the rest!!!

Ouch! I'm glad you heard wrong. :) I think that must happen sometimes, mishearing sporting events just because the announcers talk so fast.
