In a busy day of international soccer and World Cup Qualifying, there was one standout performer... the ESPN3 announcer for the Portugal-Sweden game. I've never quite been so intrigued by a game broadcast. It was equal parts confounding, exhilirating, hysterical, excitable, and ridiculous. It was like listening to the Portugese Ray Hudson announce a soccer game for the first time. It was the closest thing I've ever had to an out of body experience while watching the online stream of a soccer game.
Just listen to how the announcer called the lone goal of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo's game winner in the 82nd minute. IT'S A GOAL RONALDO! IT'S A GOAL RONALDO! RO!! NALDO!!...no comments
