magazine reprinting mildly amusing gaffes that people (mainly sports commentators) have made on the radio or TV.
Named after the commentator David Coleman
who has a reputation for making a few of these.
A couple of examples from a recent issue to give a flavour:
"There's Thierry Henry, exploding like the French train that he is."
DAVID PLEAT, ITV
"Sex with a mistress greatly increases the chances of having a stroke."
FEMALE NEWSCASTER, Channel 5
"The defender was lightning slow."
