The World Cup Reminds Us That Soccer Announcers Make Any Sport Better

Now that the World Cup is here, it is almost a guarantee that there are going to be some impassioned goal calls by a variety of announcers. I don’t know if it’s because goals are generally scarce, or if it’s because of how hard players have to work to score them, but these guys absolutely lose their minds when one takes place. And to be honest, at the end of the day there’s really nothing like it.

That being said, here is a Mike Trout home run, and Jerome Simpson doing a front flip for a touchdown…announced as soccer plays.

See what I mean?! Announcers in all other sports have to step their game up, because right now they can’t even compete with these guys.
