The World Cup serves as America’s yearly reminder that we are all deeply, deeply infatuated with Ian Darke. He’s a brilliant commentator, sure, but he also brings the authentic, rough ‘n tumble spirit of a foreign national who’s pulling for the good old U.S.A. Guarded and self-conscious as us Americans are, there’s nothing we love more than a European offering their genuine support.
He’s also just really, really good at talking. Darke is probably the poet laureate of sportscasting. To prove that point, we’ve created a little quiz. Below you’ll find an Ian Darke quote hiding amongst a few Charles Dickens quote. Can you separate the talking head from one of the greatest novelists of all time? Good luck!
