Lionel Messi hat trick makes commentator shriek like he’s been tased

Dirty Tackle

Lionel Messi momentarily overtook Cristiano Ronaldo as the top scorer in La Liga this season with a hat trick against Malaga on Sunday. Each of his goals was tremendous (the first was a header from considerable distance for someone who has been accused of not being able to use his head), but his third -- Barcelona's final goal in the 4-1 win -- was one of his trademark sublime runs topped off by a delicate finish while skipping over a challenge.

For former Newcastle/Ft. Lauderdale midfielder and current eccentric television commentator/professional Barcelona admirer Ray Hudson, this was all too much. So the only description he could offer of the goal was a gutteral yell you might expect to hear from someone with about a million volts coursing through their body. And, in its own way, it was perfect.

Once he calmed down a bit and changed his pants, Hudson sang Messi's praises in his typically nonsensical way -- something about Dr. Spock being "out of his Vulcan mind." Then he hilariously topped it off by saying Messi was "running like he's got a food mixer down his shorts."
