breaking news: Ugandan sportswriters rambling, histrionic

In their October 7 Daily Monitor article on the Ugandan cricket team’s disappointing performance in Kenya last week, Hussein Bogere and Innocent Ndawula manage to use all of the following phrases:

  • the angel of death who plucks out the heart of our loved ones
  • Uganda’s batting problems stand out like spilled gravy on a white sheet
  • wake up and smell the coffee
  • media hullabaloo
  • cricket Czars
  • for heavens’ sake
  • cry the beloved country

And they say Uganda has no literary culture.
