Lunchtime distraction: ginning up the TV calls


Those smart fellows over at The Shin Guardian scarfed an extra helping of “clever” cookies and put together this savory bit of wit.

It’s their helpful suggestions for announcers calling MLS matches, on how to gin up the syntax on goal calls and other notable match moments. My favorites:

If Dax McCarty scores: “Dax the Facts! 1-0 Red Bulls.”

If Perry Kitchen crunches someone with a tackle for DC United: “Can’t stand that heat? You know what to do!”

If Indiana University exes Eric Alexander or Will Bruin score: “Alexander bangs it home! HOOSIER DADDY!”

Check out the others at the above link. And add your own. Seriously, what else do you have going today?
