If you're a fan of foreign soccer announcers screaming "GOOOOOOOLLLLLLLL!!!!!!" then this is the clip for you because it happens four times over in Uruguay's 4-0 win over Chile in 2014 World Cup qualifying. As a proud Liverpool supporter, the video is only made better by the fact that it's the great Luis Suarez scoring all four goals. Suarez is turning into one of the best strikers in the world for Liverpool and Uruguay, but we're here to talk about this amazing announcer who has some of the longest "GOOOOOLLL" calls I've ever heard. The third goal may be one of my favorite goal calls of all-time because of the humming of what sounds like the chorus to Hey Jude. That's just awesome. You owe it to yourself to start the work week the right way by watching this video...
I mentioned this to my wife saying that while ESPN sucks as a whole,it was shocking, but a nice change that they did 10 minutes straight opening the show w/ this
This isn't necessarily standard procedure. I believe there was an NHRA guy who died earlier this year and ESPN didn't do more than devote its semi-regular "cut to the track" NHRA highlights piece to it.
PTI just opened with a good minute and a half on the subject. ESPN is certainly not putting out fluff over covering this story.
Las Vegas...Dan Wheldon...Tony Kanaan, Graham Rahal, Will Power, Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves, et al...
Like you, I kept watching, hoping that the news would be that Dan would make it...maybe his racing career was over, but that he was ALIVE. Once they called the drivers' meeting, though...my heart sank. Seeing Marco's face...TK trying to hold it together...Dario in shock...I knew before they announced it. I'm still stunned and so very sad.
The broadcast team did an admirable job in extremely difficult circumstances. I'm sure the last thing they're looking for today is a pat on the back - but thanks for doing that. We spend a lot of time criticizing announcers and pointing out when they get it wrong...it's nice, especially at this tragic time, to point when they get it right.
God bless Dan Wheldon's family & friends. RIP Dan.
I think you are forgetting that Sunday's SportsCenter is always a full 90 minutes hence 17 minutes of coverage is not 25% of the show. Still a very good article though. RIP Wheldon
@mistake by the lake yeah but with 90 minute episode you have 20-25 minutes of commercials hence it is 25% of the episode
