As an 11 y/o in 1987, I can't even fathom a guess at how many times that section of the tape got played and rewound over and over again, to the increasing mirth of my peers. I remember taking it on my year 7 camp and getting genuinely worried it'd wear out.
I'm from a similar era and yes, that tape copped a pounding.

I also love Bill's commentary of the Aus-SL where we're smashing the Lankans.
"Sri Lanka may be saved by the rain, but frankly they don't deserve it. They deserve to stay here and be thrashed"
<rain comes and the players go off>
"Yeah, ********, run for cover you little bastards!"

The cassette version of Wired World of Sports had a message at the end of side A about a censored version on the B side, "where the words (splice of every swear word on the tape + Mike Gibson farting) have been removed". Not very witty, but cracks me up every time.
Pisscocka****a**** :D

Resurrecting this great thread.

Love the part where Ian Chappell and Bill Lawry are talking about the English 'walking wounded' or 'spare parts' team and all the injuries.

Ian: Yes uh, that would look good in the pool room or behind the bar.

Bill: Ian, that would look good on the ****ing front door this one!

Love Barry Sheene cheering on Mick Doohan (in his cockney accent) and then cracking the sads when he doesn't win (or fails to qualify in first... can't exactly remember).

Barry: "C'mon Mick! C'mon Mick! You can do it! Aww f*** it! F***!"

Ian Maurice: "Geez, tell us what you really think Baz!"

Bill: I just wanted any tips about how I could get the captaincy job?

Richie: Bill I'll get straight to the point. You have a problem. And it's as plain as the nose on your face.

Bill: What is it?

Richie: It is the nose on your face.

Richie: Thank you Ian. We'll be back in just a few moments.....Pakistan are going to kick off? What ******* game are we playing? Has everyone gone completely mad?

Tony waffling on about the memorabilia commemorating the English injuries and how it would look good in the office or whatever. And Bill going "Tony, it would look good nailed to the f***ing front door!"
