Thoughts about Sport

Yes Dennis Yes

The Netherlands’ foray into the quarter-finals brings back happy memories of their last visit to this stage in 1998. And a winning goal by Dennis Bergkamp. A goal that only Bergkamp could have scored.

I watched on BBC, where comments were provided by Barry Davies. Most football fans suspect Davies as a bourgeois jack-of-all-trades, given his dalliances with effete sports such as tennis and ice-skating. But I really liked his commentary on the goal as he let out a sort of spontaneous primal scream.

But Davies’ effort is positively conservative compared this admirable outburst by Dutch commentator Jack van Gelder. It will sound familiar to anyone who has shouted out the name of Dennis Bergkamp during an orgasm. Which, let’s face it, we’ve all done.
