'Whispering' Ted Lowe

Didn't watch much snooker this time round but was sad to hear of the death of 'Whispering' Ted Lowe.
He was the Dan Maskell of snooker and I always enjoyed his commentaries and his gaffes...

Apparently he got his nickname: "Sitting in the crowd I was terrified they would hear what I had to say, so I started whispering. The producer loved it"

THE voice of snooker and an integral part of it sadly missed.

Not my sport but some of his one-liners were classic Smiley
