Why not show some support, I am, after all, sacrificing my saturdays, a bit of sleep, and perhaps a couple of pints of blood to this team.
Hello, I am Thomas Dittmeier, an Impromptu speaker absolutely none of you know. My sucesses in speech are non-existent- I am anxious, my voice is rasp and grumbly, I tend to rant and fiddle, and I occasionally make a pass at young female judges.
Hello, then, all. Props to you for developing your linguistic skill, as all people should.
