Ton Up

This is the 100th post on Hudsonia and, to mark the occasion, here are 100 29 soundbytes courtesy of Al in DC (this is actually less than half of the audio clips Al has sent me). I believe they are mainly from American Soccer and from GolTV's World Cup show from 2006. So, magisterial thanks to Al, and thanks to all readers of Hudsonia over the last 100 posts, especially those that have left comments or sent emails. Y'all are crazy.

[Update: Typical. The day I post 29 mp3s, Odeo.com crawls to a standstill. I've switched to a different mp3 player. We'll see how it works out]

They were discussing the Colorado Rapids' roof at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

The regrettable thing is that I haven't seen a full Ray Hudson-announced match in 10 months because my apartment doesn't get Gol TV. I have serious Hudson withdrawal symptoms. Except for Hudsonia, naturally.

The 6th one from the top on my list of any thing Ray Hudson has ever said. Who's Sebastian Covelli? Ray just made him into a legend because of a penalty kick.

“This is the Mona Lisa of penalty kicks. This is the Leonardo Da Vinci of penalty kicks. The most unstoppable penalty kick you will ever see. If you kids go out and practice just like this, If your professionals go out and practice just like this. UNBELIEVABLE Strike, pure accuracy, deadly, there’s nothing any goalkeeper in the world do (I wish he would have stopped himself and said maybe Iker Casillas)”

“Look at the power, look at the accuracy, hits the bar, behind the goalkeeper. PHENOMENAL!! If you could hang a penalty kick on your wall for the rest of ye life and look at just every time, That gives me ehh actual bodily……”

I love how Phil Schoen steps in before Ray has a chance to finish the sentence.

One of the funniest things I have ever heard in my life. I was breathless after 5 minutes of constant laughing because my lungs couldn’t handle it.

Just because of Ray, I tried looking for a video of this penalty kick by Sebastian Covelli all over the internets. No luck.

Great Stuff again from Ray. CLASS IN A GLASS.

What team is he talking about when he says that FIFA ranks 4th in the world but they play caveman football?

England.

I thought it was England but I couldn't remember them being 4th. Ever.
