Barcelona vs Real Zaragoza, September 26th

Are you kidding me? Oh my lord! Eto'o is injured and he's bouncing up and down, as this entire stadium is, to take their collective hats off to the magician of Messi. He's been called Messidona in the past, he is living up to the great Diego, his countryman. Absolutely unbelievable football. You wanna see stardust come out of a player's boots? Lock your beautiful, smiling eyes on this. It's fabulous vision, it's a great pass, that just gets mis-directed, but he picks it up, and he knows instinctively where the goal is. He has the initial ball in, it doesn't find its target, he keeps on running, he keeps on ticking, and he sinks his knife in beautifully into Zaragoza. Take a look at it again and again, get out of your sofas and applaud. This is magical, mercurial football by Lionel.

Well, if the first eight minutes are anything to be judged you might want to strap the seatbelt on your Barcalounger.
Phil Schoen
Yeah. And get me an oxygen tent, please, Phil.

My sweet lord! This is better than Messi's goal, Phil. This is an orgasmic goal of simp - oh, my lord. An incredible strike.
Ray Hudson, 09:00 1st

The marquis of marksmanship, again. He doesn't need two touches. You better wrap him up in a vault and drop him to the ocean, because that's the only way you're going to contain little Lionel, the magic Messi ... he's always lively, fizzier than an Alka-Seltzer in a glass of Newcastle Brown Ale ...

A rabbit-hole attack by Barcelona ...

His heart is as big as a fat pig, that man there, and so is his courage ...
Ray Hudson, 21:10 1st

Just curious - do the fat pigs drink the Alka-Seltzer and Brown Ale? Must be a fun night out on the town in Newcastle.
Phil Schoen, 21:32 1st

Scientific football and it begins with the Einstein, Messi. The brilliant wizard ...
Ray Hudson, 21:56 1st

What a pass this is! This is Clark Kent, Superman vision from deep to find Thierry Henry ...
Ray Hudson, 23:52 1st

Defending this team, it's like trying to nail Jello to the ceiling, mission impossible ...
Ray Hudson, 39:10 1st

Iniesta trying to get around the big man, Sergio, here, to receive his own pass on the other side. Drives into Sergio, he cannot dispel the atoms in his body, so Sergio just rifles through him. I wouldn't put it past Iniesta to try that disappearing act and then reappear on the other side of Sergio, the way he's playing ...

They are having more fun than monkeys in a monkey tree ...
Ray Hudson, half-time

This blog is a great idea. Your collection is excellent, especially the audio.

I personally don't like listening to Hudson 90% of the time. He is a clown, which is not what you want when watching football. His ambiguous sexual references are bizarrely funny, but I feel bad for him; he doesn't realize that his frequent outbursts of passion/manlove are not shared by all his listeners.

Thank you.

Obviously, his style doesn't appeal to everyone, although I believe many who are initially put off by his eccentricity eventually find themselves enjoying it.

I think that 'entertainer' may be more apt than 'clown', and that 'bizarre', 'funny' and 'passion' can only be good for the game, but I'm not going to disagree with a man who uses a semi-colon so well. I do love good punctuation.

OMG! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this blog!!!! We love Ray Hudson!!

I'm going to be referring a lot of people here, if you don't mind. The only other source I could find for quotes before this was a frickin wikipedia page. You've got the actual soundbytes?!?! ORGASMIC!
