"Oh lord almighty save us" - GAA commentary in America is the gift that keeps on giving
'"Oh lord almighty save us."
The Chicago football championship final took place at the weekend, and was full of goals, scores and big hits, all worthy of entertaining any GAA fan.
However, it is the commentary that really makes this game so special, and one clip in particular has gone viral due to the unique turn of phrase from the broadcasters.
Former Antrim star Adam Loughran had the goal at his mercy for his club Pearse's, after a delightful bit of build up from his teammates, but unfortunately he struck the ball wide of the mark.
A chance like that was never going to ignored by these commentators, who have been famed for their use of colloquialism, and 'interesting' metaphors.
"Oh! Jesus Christ, how did he miss it is right. Number 13 Adam Loughran - unbelievable miss."
"He had the girl in the bed but he didn't touch her," replied the co-commenator.

'"Oh lord almighty save us. We'll be up in court tomorrow."
The opposition team, Chicago Parnells boasted a star studded line up including Tyrone's Conor Meyler, Michael McKernan and Armagh's Rian O'Neill.
Pearse's came in as the underdogs, and despite Loughran's glaring miss they were very clinical in front of goal, running away with the game as winners 4-14 to 10-09.
The Antrim man can at least take solace in the fact that his team were the eventual winners, but this viral clip certainly won't help him forget the goal-chance anytime soon.
