Soccer commentators cheat sheet: The art of commentary with BBC’s Nick Barnes
Despite the hours that Barnes pours into each page, he uses his notes only sparingly during actual gameplay. “They are there purely as a crutch and a point of reference if need be,” he said. “If I was a newspaper reporter, I could keep my match reports, but radio is transient, so my notebook is my personal record of the matches I cover.”
Barnes creates a detailed two-page spread for each match he commentates for BBC Radio Newcastle. The notes are divided into two color-coded segments: The left-hand page contains background information on Sunderland’s opposition—the club’s starting XI from its last fixture, previous results, and stadium details—while the right-hand side is updated in real time as the action happens.
Sometimes the action gets ahead of Barnes’s pen and paper. “There have been a couple of occasions when I’ve been writing something down during the match and there has been a goal or an incident,” he said. “Then I have to thank [Gary Bennett, Barnes’s co-commentator] for being beside me or the monitor which will hopefully replay it.”

Rich Drug Cartel Leaders Of Instagram
If you’re involved with a major drug cartel, you might not want to plaster your exploits on social media. Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, otherwise known as ‘El Chino Antrax,’ was arrested at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the beginning of January after he arrived on a flight from South America. Inside sources say that he was caught because of his public Instagram account that he used to post photos of his extravagant lifestyle. Gamboa is reportedly the right-hand man of Sinaloa Cartel bosses Ismael Zambada and recently captured Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. He’s suspected of murdering and hanging three men from a bridge in 2011, and he’s so infamous that several narcocorrido folk songs have been written about him.
