Spain's World Cup-Winning Goal: Best Served As A Spanish Broadcast

New, comments

When Spencer Hall argued that we should follow the World Cup on Univision, he knew exactly what he was talking about. Moments ago, I had the pleasure of watching Spain's extra-time goal on a Spanish broadcast.


I don't speak Spanish, and it did not matter. The dramatic nature of the goal -- with only a few minutes left in the World Cup final -- sent the announcers positively over the edge. Minutes later, they're still trying to collect themselves. One of them made this sort of full-throated hybrid of a cry, a scream, and a table saw. The vuvuzela should be abandoned in favor of a bullhorn that plays that noise on loop.
