Such is life
A few of us Kankas headed off to the Red Lion Club on Sunday night for England's match against the Germans. I was surprised to see not only a bunch of Germans there, but then TRT showed up as well. I managed to record the clip this afternoon.
The translation goes sort of like this:
Studio presenter: We (TRT) watched the match in the English Embassy. We were with my colleague Irmak Alpagut. She did reporting. There were English, French, Germans. Lets look at the report and afterwards we will talk.
Voiceover: For the most important match to date in the World Cup the Germans and English watched the "early final" together in Ankara. During the match, at times voices were raised in happiness and sadness. Especially when the goal wasn't given to the English, the English revolt was great.
Commentator: describes the non-goal
Then a couple of interviews in English
Voiceover: It wasn't just English and German fans watching the match.
Sir Eski Kanka Jimbo: talks rubbish
Reporter Irmak Alpagut: In this match who were you supporting?
Little Oz Kanka Matthew: ahhh England.
Reporter Irmak Alpagut: But they lost.
Little Oz Kanka Matthew: Such is life.
Reporter Irmak Alpagut: You say, such is life. Whıch Turkish team do you support?
Little Oz Kanka Matthew: Ah, Turkey.
Reporter Irmak Alpagut: For example, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce?
Little Oz Kanka Matthew: Ah, Genclerbirligi.
Voiceover: As the final whistle went and the World Cup ended for the English they gentlemanly congratulated the Germans.
Studio presenters: Yes, such is life. That's true
