There’s just something special about hearing commentators lose it in another language, but this moment from Iceland’s basketball playoffs is on a whole other level.
Hey @SportsCenter I think we have a number one for you. This happened in Iceland last night. The game winning buzzer in Game 2 of the playoffs. PM for great TV quality. We have copyright of this. pic.twitter.com/4Up2xcWE1v— Domino's Körfukvöld (@korfuboltakvold) March 21, 2018
NEI! NEI! NEEEEEEEEI!
According to Google Translate “nei” is Icelandic for “no,” so this tracks. I mean, it’s a dang good shot in a high stakes game — it’s worthy of the reaction. That said, I just love a dude yelling “NEI!” over and over again.
It goes on so long that it’s funny, then stops being funny, then he “nei’s” two more times and it’s sublime. Man, Icelandic basketball is low-key lit. Going to need to see more of this and determine if there are more “NEI!” worthy moments we’re missing.
