Hockey may be the best game on earth, but if there's one area where soccer has it beat, it's in the booth. Soccer's play-by-play guys are legendary. Some are excitable. Some are stunningly descriptive. Some just have an endearingly musical brogue. Whatever it is, it's hard to hear a good soccer announcer and not immediately think how cool it would be to hear him call a hockey game.
But now, thanks to YouTuber "Logiano1," you can. He (or she) has taken over five minutes of hockey highlights and perfectly synched them up with footy calls. The result is magic:
The clip used for the Jason Spezza goal in particular is absolutely perfect. Let's relive that:
"......... Oh.......... Oh......... Oh -- OH MY GOODNESS. To cap it off, a thing of beauty and brilliance."
"As electrifying as a hair dryer thrown into a hot tub, my friend. Absolutely breathtaking. He puts the Haitian voodoo rattle on this one when he finishes. Like Betamax, they do not make them like him anymore. What more can you say. An extraordinary goal that will send these people into their dreams tonight thinking of heavenly things. Absolutely bamboozles his defender with this virtuouso goal. That's not human, it is not. It is superhuman."
Like, Pierre McGuire is good, but, you know, this is better.
