Sheesh, some people have no sense of decorum. Hey, British press, why don't you show some journalistic objectivity, you knuckleheads? You'll never believe what happened when host country Great Britain's Mo Farah became the first Briton to ever win the men's 10,000m gold medal. "Fair and balanced," my Aunt Fanny!
As Farah completed his historic sprint in the final lap of the grueling 10k, he was cheered on by an exultant stadium of his fellow countrymen, including members of the royal family. When he came in first to take the gold, it was an emotional moment and an immense source of national pride for those in attendance. But come on, now, reporters in the press box. There's no call for this.
Why, these reporters were carrying on so that I nearly dropped my tea and crumpets. I was so startled at the outburst that my monocle fell out and my top hat became unseated upon my head. A shameful display. Hurrumph!
[NOTE: the above is just a bunch of jokes, obviously. This is awesome. There should be cheering in every press box. Heck, if you count Hawk Harrelson of the Chicago White Sox, there already is.]
