Enberg discusses Wimbledon's 'bloody blue balls'

In what will likely become one of the funnier announcing moments from 2011's Wimbledon coverage, Dick Enberg, working Venus Williams' latest match -- a three-set victory over 40-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm -- told a story about an old-school Englander who was lamenting what would happen if you mixed yellow tennis balls and green grass stains.

The result? "Bloody blue balls," Enberg pointed out to partner Chris Evert (via The Big Lead).

Yes, her response -- "Okay ... I'll leave that one alone" -- is even funnier than the story.

I thought this was an English only website, but debo responds inan unknown dialect and manages to score 93 points. Once again the raters have no grasp og language or content. They just look at a responder's ranking and grade accordingly. I will say again for the umpteenth time, forget scoring a response and just post it. The current rating system is at best arbitrary, and demonstrates that the "raters" know nothing about English or sports!
