The setting: Senegal, 2003 NBA Finals

Okay. I just thought of another really funny thing that I heard someone say during a game. When I was in Senegal in 2003 during the NBA finals, a bunch of us would cram into a hotel room late at night to watch the games. There was a French commentator and an American speaking French. His accent was horrible! AND THE BEST PART is that he translated American idioms into French. So someone blocked someone else's shot, and the commentator screeched out "PAS DANS MA MAISON!!"* It was hilarious! But the coup de gras was when some other player slam-dunked the ball over someone else and he growled, "S'IL VOUS PLAIT!!!"** We howled with laughter throughout the games. Good times.


*"NOT IN MY HOUSE!!"
**"PLEEEEASE!!!"
