American soccer fans have long wondered what it would be like if Gus Johnson called soccer. The man who made watching the NCAA Tournament even better, which was once thought impossible, could only do wonders if he called soccer.
Just imagine his goal calls? If a shot in basketball can make him go wild, what would a goal do to him? Wonder no more.
Finally someone was smart enough or convincing enough to get the man to call soccer. The San Jose Earthquakes got him to do the call for their match against the Red Bulls, and this week, got him calling their match against the Union. The result was awesomeness squared.
Johnson recently joined Fox for college football and basketball (okay, not that recently), and Fox just so happens to have the TV rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Could Gus the Great be coming to a World Cup?
