A small change I would like to see to Competitive Chess Commentary & its culture.

I know high level games rarely result in mates, because usually a player will see it a few moves ahead and just resign...but I suppose there are rare cases it does happen.

When it does, Chess commentators should take a play from Futbol announcers, especially the ones from Mexico and South America when they score a goal. I want to see Maurice, Yasser and Jen take a deep breath and yell at the top of their lungs...

"CHEEEEEEeeeEEeEEEEEEEECKKKKKKKK-MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!!!!!"

If you are not 110% behind this, you should be ashamed of yourself. it would be epic and make for the best memes.

Sometimes I wish my opponent would resign earlier as it results in slow tedious endgames where i am clearly winning
