Instant Comedy

Watching the ODI final yesterday, the most interesting development in cricket lately has been off the field. Spectators who fancy themselves as comedians, who were once happy to do up a banner before the game, are now taking along their cue cards and marker pens in order to provide some real-time commentary.

Channel 9 finally clued into this last night, and we were treated to a forlorn Indian fan holding up a plea of “Rain: Please save us” when they looked like losing by 300 runs. Even better was the scamp who dared to ask that which everyone was thinking: “What’s the 8:30 Movie?”.

The channel 9 commentary team got a great chuckle out of that one, but I’m not entirely sure that he wasn’t having a subtle dig at them.
