OT: A question about French (play-by-play during a goal)

Having a very limited grasp of French, can somebody please explain to me what your play-by-play guy says when someone scores?

It's *something* + le but. I know "but" is "goal", so I assume he's saying "he scores!" or "it's a goal!".

It sounds something like "a bee le but!"

Thanks

He shoot he scores= Le tir et le BUT!!!!= Word for word --The shot and the goal...

So the game probably ended like that ¨Sourray, le tir et le but!!!!¨

What does "Et ben" mean? I assume that it's some kind of congratulatory phrase, but I can't figure it out on my own.

Ya, that's what RDS typically means by it. Like "ah well," or "and...". or "oh man."

The closest English phrase that translates "et bien"
is "GO FIGURE"
Both phrases convey the exact same thing.

True, good call. I was trying to come up with an english equivalent, but couldn't. "Go figure..." is bang on.

That's funny because my son and i laugh everytime we here it and we try to repeat whatever they say but it's never the same twice.

And since we are asking questions what does Ole mean?

I think its just an exclamation like "Hey!" or "Dang!"

Ole is just..ole

See that's what's confused me. It's written all over the place as "eh ben", as opposed to "eh bien".

The announcer speak so fast I have trouble sometimes, and everyone seems to write French in shorthand (why is that?) so I have trouble.

you see it's a slang term.
"eh ben" is the street french, a bit like Americans say y'all in the south. Sure it's wrong but absolutely everyone knows your from the south.

Pronounce "eh ben" and everyone knows your from Quebec and you know the real street pronunciation.

It must be thought of as a local phrase, not as correct French.

Reverse does not work. AN American saying "you all come back now, do you hear me?" Makes NO SENSE. Y'all come back now,Hear? makes all the sense in the world if your from the south.

"Et ENCORE une chance ratée par Ryder!"

"Je crois que c'était Latendresse, Pierre"

"Ryder ne peut tout simplement pas acheter un but c'est temps-ci, Yvon."

"Effectivement, Pierre. Par contre la reprise semble bien montrer que c'etait Latendresse. Il avait un filet béant. Comment a-t-il pu rater cette chance?"

"Et bien. Que dire de Ryder? Il a perdu toute sa confiance! Ca ne va certainement pas plaire à Carbo."
