Barcelona vs Real Madrid, December 23rd

Just look at this place, man. Gives you goosebumps the size of coconuts...
Ray Hudson, pre-game

They're all tighter than guitar strings out there. Don't think that they don't feel this pressure, they'll have butterflies the size of seagulls in their stomachs...
Ray Hudson, pre-game

This is a brilliant goal. There's no denying it. And Calderón and Schuster's gotta be beaming inside. Take a look at this finish, he's been waiting in the long grass, Ronaldinho's countryman comes out. It's a beautiful-give-and go. One, two, it comes back to Baptista, and he makes a beast's finish out of this. Beautiful van Nistelrooy, picture perfect, great half-volley top corner. Look at this on the go, this is pin-point volley exchange between the two of them. One, give me it back, you've got it my son, finish it, rifle, one-nothing Real Madrid.
Ray Hudson, 35:42 1st


Beautiful give-and-go in the air falls to Baptista, whose finish is sharper than a porcupine's backside...
Ray Hudson, half-time

Wonderful play, wasn't it? You've got to speculate to accumulate, well Baptista does exactly that. Isosceles himself would have liked to have been involved in this footballing geometry...
Ray Hudson, half-time


Raul, man. He's like a Twinkie. He would survive a nuclear war.
Ray Hudson, 90:44 2nd

Just two from the superclassico? Damn. Ray musta been on the Pepto after the holidays.

I might have dreamed this, but I think that after Milito missed a tackle in the clasico, Ray said that the defender had "nearly filled his pants" on the play. There followed a good 30 seconds of silence, as Phil tried to decide where to go with that one.
