Text commentary can often prove entertaining. Therefore, a central place to remember them all seems to be fitting.
I'll prettify this later, for now just keep an eye out (and post some old favourites!)
"I'm told there's currently a bit of an issue with the live page. It's supposed to be like that. We're trying out a new Japanese Manga style. Not a fan? I'll feed that back to the bosses and hopefully we'll have it back to normal asap."
- BBC Sport, England v New Zealand, 30th March 2016
"Sam Robson's sheer hunger for runs has dragged Middlesex to almost-certain safety against Warwickshire. He continues to prod the England selectors after passing the 300-run mark for the match. Barring an unusually sporting declaration, a draw seems inevitable."
'Prod the England selectors' - now that conjures up some interesting mental images. If you could, what would you use? Snooker cue? Bratwurst? A stick with a sponge on the end covered in fig jam (thank you EL Wisty)..."
ziyad: "Dear Miller, can you please NEVER say the phrase "one way to skin a cat"? I am concerned that you might get attacked by SJWs or PETA members." Thanks for your concern. Actually, I do have a cat (or rather, the kids do). I would happily skin it on a daily basis, the scrounging little savage
Alan Gardner: "94.5: Anderson to Pradeep, no run, oh, that's a jaffa, beautiful seam and then swinging late as the batsman again planted himself on the back foot, this close to hitting the top of off. That ball was like a cougar making eyes at a virgin"
Gardner again: "Mohammad Amir to Roy, FOUR, touch fuller, Roy plays straight but gets a thick inside edge to deep square leg... where Mohammad Nawaz does an impression of a beached seal in his attempt to flick the ball back and allows it to run past him for four"
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
