„Fußballfloskeln wörtlich genommen“ – aus „Die Sendung mit der Maus“ (ARD/WDR) – Juni 2014.

 

No language seems richer in empty phrases and oblique metaphors than that of soccer commentators. It is as if they are trying to keep up with the sporting action with their linguistic effort, which they are only breathlessly panting after. Among the linguistic inaccuracies of recent times is the remark that "regular time" will soon be over. This means that the 90th minute is approaching, at which point a game normally comes to an end (and usually did twenty years ago). Nowadays, referees are required to make up for delays or breaks in the game, so that the final whistle sometimes takes three, sometimes five, sometimes eight minutes longer. However, this stoppage time is not, as the saying goes, "irregular", it is in accordance with the rules. Before the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Jörn Hintzer and Jakob Hüfner staged an entertaining soccer game for the "Sendung mit der Maus" show that took all these clichés and metaphors literally. Great fun!
