We're not the only ones looking for something to do while we wait for the world to 're-open'. Sports commentators worldwide have been in limbo, waiting for the games to resume. In the meantime, some have come up with ingenious uses for their talents.
First we have Andrew Cotter, a sports commentator from the UK who has been giving commentaries of a different sort... that of his dogs... yes, dogs... on Twitter. And don't worry, you don't need a Twitter account to watch these:
The next laugh is care of Nick Heath who would normally be commentating rugby matches but since the pandemic hit has been keeping people entertained by giving commentaries of average people doing average things. The folks at Sportsnet compiled some of Heath’s work in an article, again, you’ll find the link below. Once you’re in the article, just scroll down a bit to get the videos. The ‘leggings’ one is my favourite with the stroller race a close second.
Can't hear anything in the video? The volume on the video may be muted. Have a look at the pictures below which will walk you through what to do. Then go back to the video and give it a try.
First, look at the bottom right of the video, you're looking for a small image / icon of a speaker. If you don't see the speaker, you might need to tap/click in the middle of the video screen first so that the controls appear, then click on the speaker icon. Sometimes just clicking on the screen will enable the volume.
Now you should see the video controls, along with the speaker icon which represents the volume control at the bottom right.
Once you have the controls, click or tap on that speaker icon (see the picture below):
It should automatically turn the volume on. There is a slider that you can move up and down to adjust the sound as needed. After that, all you have to do is press the play button (that small white triangle on the left) and watch!
To try again be sure to go back to the video by clicking the appropriate website link from the list above.
