A comment on Ranjit Fernando that was around. Thanks, H, for the tip.
"I cannot for the life of me, figure out why all of you are all a twitter over poor Ranjit Fernnado's style of comentary. He is the most sought after in our hosehold which consists of my mum, my daughter and my wife, not to mention my dog. My daughter specialises in guessing the next word Fernando would utter, and usually gets about 80% right. At 7 years, she is quite bright, almost as much as Fernando himself. My mom is 65 and has a book in which Fernando's phraseology is recorded. She does this with much enthusiasm but in about 10 years of intent listening to the man she hasn't gone past the first page. My wife specialises in anticipating how Fernando would repeat or agree with everything the other man beside him would say. But what worries me is my dog, Ralph. Each time Fernando takes a bow, Ralph hares out of the house with his tail between his legs and a whine that would put the hound of the Baskervilles to shame. As for me, I couldnt care less. The man is the idiot proof version for those whose cataract ops have been long overdue. In describing what can be seen he has become quite a hit amongst the over 80's everywhere. He is like Braille to the blind! The man has his uses, he has!"
