for pity's sake  
I just spent the most excruciating 5 minutes listening to the announcers for the Tour de France. They must be the worst announcers in the history of sport. I would like to watch some of this, but I will have to do so with the sound off. The two bits that put me over the top were repeated references to 'fancy men' with no explanation, and then telling me that Nairobi, Kenya was in Africa.

Back to Wimbledon.

I tend to watch most sport with the sound off - but that sounds particularly annoying.

It could be worse -- the announcer could be telling you that Nairobi, Kenya, is in Asia.

I'm doing the Tour de Fleece, but I've only dipped into the actual Tour de France briefly. Currently I'm watching nature documentaries. This particular series (BBC History of the Natural World) seems to have a common theme of "animals and earlier man had a stable ecology, and then Europeans showed up and screwed everything up."

Or telling you that Kenya, Nairobi is in Africa.
