Every now and again you or someone else posts a great contender for COTD. In fact, people reply ‘COTD!’ afterwards as a vote of their approval. However, there can only be one COTD and these other contenders are pipped to the post by a astute observation, a superhuman statistic, or a controversial point of view.
Well this thread to to preserve those classic comments in one place. If you’ve made or remember seeing a comment you thought was a COTD contender, add it to the thread :)
I’ll start with two of my own, but I’m sure there are better ones!
Context : Michael Schumacher simultaneously gave Rubens Barichello a near wall, and near death experience in the eyes of many. Schumacher infamously, and characteristically thought he had given Rubens just enough space to perform his manoeuvre without crashing at the Hungarian Grand Prix. It later emerged that Schumacher rightly texted Rubens to apologise, and here’s my vision of how the following face to face would have gone..

That conversation would be interesting:
ms: Aah, hi Rubens, I wanted to say sorry
rb: for what?
ms: *looks at feet* for the other day?
rb: what happened the other day?
ms: you donít remember?
rb: I donít know, Iím pretty popular these days, I beat the stig on top gear
ms: I am the Stig on Top Gear.
rb: er, yup. You were saying?
ms: Oh yeah, sorry for you know, nearly killing you
ms: Gezz Rubens!! Iím trying to apologise here, and youíre killing me!!
rb: nice choice of words.
rb: come back when youíve learnt humility. *leaves*
