When transfer deadline day rolls around, Sky Sports News' Jim White gets more excited than a puppy attached to a leash made of bacon. So excited, in fact, that sometimes his mouth is so overeager to spit out the latest transfer dealings that it creates a perfect sized opening for his foot.
So while recapping the day's moves as Big Ben ominously struck 11 p.m., instead of declaring that striker Bobby Zamora had joined Queens Park Rangers, it sounded like White announced that "Bobby Zamora has gone from Fulham to Coons Park Rangers." Clearly his Scottish accent and excitable nature conspired against him to produce a muddled combination of syllables, but it's still an unfortunate occurrence in his big moment. Especially given all the more intentional instances of racist slurs and behavior in English football of late.
Next time, just remember to breathe, Jim.
