South American soccer announcer gets his own soundtrack & echo machine!

It's been a while since we've entered into the world of Latin American soccer announcers, but when I saw NBC's soccer announcer Arlo White tweet this clip I knew it was worth sharing.  Colombia beats Paraguay 2-0 thanks to a brace from Falcao, but just listen to the announcer.  First of all, he may be the fastest talking announcer I've ever heard.  Second of all, check out the two goal calls at 1:40 and 3:40.  Not only is there catchy background music, there's an echo machine for the "GOOOOOOL" call.  Now we finally found what it will take to get soccer to the next level in this country.  Echo machines.  Of course!
