    During the year whenever you hear some of Bruce's special quotes please feel free to post them.

    I have a couple to start us off.

    "Ohhh they're gonna be something arn't they? the DEES are gonna be something"

    "when you see them play like this you feel like you wanna barrack for carlton dont you do you feel like that as an old essendon man you wanna barrack for carlton today"

    "The Swans at the moment they must feel like they're in a canoe with a tsunami approaching"

    "Loads up goes long, talk about exclamation mark"

    That's actually not a bad one - he probably stole it from Dennis.

    paraphrasing but during the Geelong vs Hawks prelim last year, after Steve Johnson narrowly missed his 4th goal early on.

    "Ohhhhh I wanted him to kick that. Not because I want Geelong to win... because I LOVE HIM!!!!"

    haha yeah he sounded like he was getting sexually excited during that call and after the goal was kicked it was like he came and went "ahhhhhhhhhww"

    It cracked me up when I saw it

    It's number 7 on here starts around the 0:57 mark
