Thoughts and prayers, Dafydd,

thoughts and prayers. Close, though.

In the old days in American baseball we would have called it a subway Series. NY Yankees and NY Giants e.g.

Rugby is my new go-to for funny language.

BBC, on Wales prep for the Bronze Medal game.
"Ken Owens stays at hooker with Elliot Dee handed a seventh replacement role in the tournament, while props Nicky Smith and Dillon Lewis start with regular loose-head Wyn Jones covering the tight-head."
Saw some of it in the last few days on American TV. Big pile of bodies, no movement either direction; no whistle; ball pops up out of nowhere; player gets it, runs a bit; another big pile.
Chaps seemed to be having fun, though.

That Gary, and **** [Richard] Whittinghill, owned both

drive times on L.A. radio airwaves when I lived there.
The hand behind the ear goes back to the days before good headsets, for self-monitoring. Owens did it on Laugh-In as part of the satire- not used in TV.
Both men did their own humor spots on radio, quite risqué for the day.

"Garryowen" was an old rallying cry of some kind used in the military. I think it had a connection also with one of Custer's 7th Cav units. Y'all can fact check that yourselves. Of course Owen and derivatives is the Smith of Wales.

Thanks for the links.
BBC is full of old English/ Welsh replays, interviews and such because of the final four matchups. (History trivia: S. Africa and N.Z. are also connected to the Empire that Was.) These tough guys were near tears in interviews as they remembered old events. Team was family.

BTW the DJ on the left is my homeboy,

Casey Kasem.
Bio mentions voice roles on Lone Ranger and Sergeant Preston. Both shows created in Detroit and figured prominently in the history of radio networks. (The Ranger was so popular in areas with poor signals it led to the creation of an ad hoc hookup that became Mutual Broadcasting. Preston also used a classical overture as theme, the Don~a Diana by von Reznicek.)
Notice that his parents were immigrant small business owners. When they spent hard-earned money on a radio spot they wanted it done right. Kasem did so later when reading his commercials as a DJ, which helped his career.
These days, his back story might have hurt it.
His surviving wife looked like a dumb blonde, but was smart enough to play one to perfection. ("Cheers" and spinoff with Dan Hedaya.)

Outlived his physical and mental health. Sad

Devastated Doug.

We played well, but just not our day.
