Announcing

Postby RoushAH » Mon Mar 25, 2013 11:39 am

So I was set to announce a roller derby bout the other day. The sound guy asked me to say something into the mic for a sound check, so I decided to be cheeky.

"Noswaith dda, pawb, a croeso i'r bout ras sglefrio gyda Mason Dixon Roller Vixens ac Charlottesville Derby Dames. Dw i'n meddwl mae'n rhaid dych chi'n brynnu cwrw nawr, achos mae'r bout ar fin ddechrau."

Not to be out-done, my announcing partner decided to do his sound check in Gaelic.

Woo-hoo!!! Talk about 'Working Welsh.' (And I love your announcing partner's reaction, too.)
