Ireland is being rocked today by this f-bomb that came out of the mouth of Irish broadcasting legend Eamon Dunphy. I just thought this is how Irish people talked and didn’t make a big deal out of it. Not the Irish media. There has even been a full dissection by the Irish Times.
Translation for those of you who don’t understand Irish:
Back from the break .
Eamon to Kenny and Didi: “The pitch was a ****ing bog.”
Eamon: “When Neymar was shaping up to take that penalty I thought he was ****ing dreading it.”
Bill: “We’re on air.”
Eamon: “We’re not, are we?”
Bill: “We are.”
Didi and Kenny’s faces: [WTF]
Eamon: “I apologise for that.”
Bill: “Obviously that was an inexactitude.”
Eamon: [Looking over his shoulder to check with studio people that his remarks were indeed broadcast live to the nation].
This dude even got on national TV to apologize for the f-bomb. I’m sorry, but what the hell happened to Ireland? You guys are becoming more American by the day.
