If there is one sure way to guarantee you will be on Awful Announcing, it is by ending your game-winning call by screaming WOOHOOOO in euphoria 3000 times the normal volume. This is exactly what the Houston Dynamo’s PBP man (whom I believe is Charlie Pallilo) did following an absolutely perfect left footed strike in extra time with seconds to go to break a tie with Real Salt Lake. Here’s exactly what he said for those of you with broken computer speakers.
“Dixon top of the box, Dixon still going, Dixon fires… HE GOT IT, OH MY GAWDDDD! WHAT A WINNER! THE DYNAMO ACADEMY PRODUCT, IN THE 93RD MINUTE! ALEX DIXOONNN! WOOOOHHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!”
I gotta say, I love the enthusiasm. I’m happy this found its way to the youtubes because I always find ecstatic soccer announcing goals fantastic. And videos of dogs, definitely love the videos of dogs.
