Watford’s dramatic win over Leicester on Sunday, sending them to the Second Division final, was almost too much for BBC3 commentator Jon Marks. Let’s listen to his call in the final seconds as he nearly spontaneously combusts, transforms to a gaseous state and floats out of the booth.
Franck Ribery Furious At Teammate Over Celebratory Beer Dousing: ‘He Knows I’m Muslim. I’m Pissed Off’
Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery is steaming mad after being doused with beer by teammate Jerome Boateng. That’s because Ribery is Muslim, and cannot touch alcohol. Touching underage prostitutes? That’s different, apparently.
MUST WATCH: Watford Advance To Championship Playoff Final With The Most Stunning Soccer Sequence You Will Ever See
With the aggregate score tied 2-2 in the 96th minute of the last leg, Leicester was standing at the penalty mark, ready to seal the deal. But it was Watford that somehow managed to advance.
Thierry Henry’s bicycle kick goal in the 88th minute to beat the Montreal Impact was like discovering the Holy Grail, if these announcers are to be believed. But the Red Bulls’ star disarmed the hyperbole following the game, merely describing it as “good.”
Ramires had already scored a goal in today’s Premier League match between Chelsea and Tottenham when this happened, so the dude gets a little slack.

Anybody who has ever played soccer knows how easy it is to receive a throw-in, volley the ball up into the air, fall down, do a sort of spinning-turn-kick towards the goal and stun five defenders (and the goalie) into simply watching your shot trickle into the net. For some reason we could never find any video evidence of this tried-and-true technique — until now. Walter Calderon shows us how it’s done.
Ricardo Portillo was a lifelong soccer enthusiast who took up officiating to stay connected with the game he loved. The 46-year-old Salt Lake City man died on Saturday from a blow to the head by a 17-year-old player in a recreational league game, after having been in a coma for a week. Tragic anomaly, or sign of the times?
Good for Hull City. These guys seem pumped they’ll be playing in the English Premiership next season. But isn’t it kind of lame when the culminating moment of your season happens in front of a TV and not on the field? Here’s my take on it.
