Bill McLaren 1923-2010

Another link to the great days of BBC sports commentary has passed away. Farewell, Bill McLaren. Yours is a voice I shall remember all of my life.

And, thanks to Alex Massie and YouTube, you folks can all share a little bit of the maestro at work.

  1. He sounds to be someone like Joe Morgan (well known analyst for Sunday Night Baseball in America. One of the reasons why people watched Rugby coverage. He sounds very insightful.

  2. I (hope I) will never forget “He caught that ball like it was three pounds of raw haggis.”

    Which is kind of hard to parse the meaning of in retrospect, but in context it was lovely.
