Year In Review: The Absolute Greatest Scoring Calls Of 2015 In Every Major Sport
1. Soccer, U.S. Women Vs. Japan
This wouldn't be a legit list without Andres Cantor in it, so here's his epic call of Carli Lloyd's midfield goal during her hat trick World Cup effort vs. Japan. Final times: First "Goal!" call, 15 seconds without a breath. Second, 12 seconds. Third, 11 seconds. That's 38 seconds of "Goooooooooooooooooooaaal!"
2. Hockey, Stars Vs. Hurricanes
On Feb. 27, 2015, Daryl "Razor" Reaugh went down in infamy for this call, as Stars' forward Jamie Benn raced down the ice in traffic for a great score. It will be forever known as the "Poop Through a Goose" call, although it's actually more explicit than that. Enjoy.
3. Football, Jets Vs. Patriots
It happened this past Sunday, when Bill Belichick won the coin toss in overtime and elected to ... kick off? That decision ended with the Jets in the red zone, and this play, as gloriously called on ESPN Desportes Radio.
Our ESPN Deportes (US) radio announcers had a pretty epic call of our game-winning TD on Sunday.

4. Baseball, Pirates Vs. Cardinals
On July 12, the Pirates came from behind to tie it twice as the game went into the 14th inning, before Andrew McCutchen launched a walkoff homer to win it for Pittsburgh at PNC Park. That also launched the most memorable "Raise the Jolly Roger!" call by Pirates play-by-play man Greg Brown in recent memory ... to which he added, for some reason, a shillelagh. Great stuff.
5. Basketball, Lakers Vs. Spurs
This actually happened on Dec. 12, 2014, but won the best live call of 2015, so we included it. It's Nick Young's game-winning jumper for the Lakers against the Spurs, with Kobe not looking especially happy about the whole thing. With subtitles for your enjoyment. Rico Swaggy!
