Personality Of The Day

Hasbullah Awang is like the local version of John Motson or Andy Gray. His voice often accompanies footie matches shown on local TV, and he's been doing that for practically ages. Experienced though he is, he's not free from hilarious slips of the tongue.

Me and the boys, we still remember World Club 1998, when introducing the potent Chile strikeforce at the time - Ivan Zamorano and Marcelo Salas - nonchalantly announced "gandingan mantap Marcelo dan Salas!".

A more recent gaffe was during a Champions League match involving AC Milan and probably Barcelona (forgot which year though), when he announced in his spirited way "di kubu kuat AC Milan, Nou Camp!". For the non footie savvy out there, Milan plays in San Siro aka Giussepe Meazza Stadium while Barcelona plays at the Nou Camp.

And of course the more frequent mixups of numbers "Nombor 8 pantas meluru di sayap kiri, maaf nombor 3 sebenarnya" or action itself "GOALLL! Ohh maaf, rupanya sedikit tersasar"

Other contributions are welcomed.
