My wife came in from the kitchen,with a mouth full of cake,holding her cup of coffee and said "What did he just say???"

Absolutly priceless....LOL!

Today as a Real Madrid player was hit in the throat by Valencia:

"The referee probably couldn't see it because he was paying attention to the rest of the hanky-panky going on!"

That "kaliedescope eyes" comment is my favorite Ray-ism of the season so far, totally off the cuff as only the Hud can do.

I long for the return of this blog like a fat kid for cake. This GolTV - DirectTV spat has gone from the ridiculous to the bloody ridiculous.

notnowcato said...

At the start of the last Barcelona game, Hudson described their play as "THE SORT OF FOOTBALL THAT SHOULD BE WATCHED WHILE LISTENING TO WAGNERS "RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES". I then had to play the piece for my 13 year old! She LOVED it! Thanks Ray,for turning my kid onto classical music!

Anonymous said...

Not to worry, Colin. I'll be watching Veetle and reporting to you folks.

Classic Hudson in the Atletico v Barca match when Messi was described in neon light language by Ray..."Messi could braid 5 live pythons with his feet!"

His best ever,though we keep saying that...

On Lionel Messi:

notnowcato said...

After the Messi goal last week he said something like "He sees Eto offering help and says, I see ya-I dont need ya!This guy needs help, like a fish needs a bicycle..."

"Here, in the modern game, there are things that are overly scrutinized, and to very little effect. You can track what Riquelme does, the patterns he runs, and how many miles he's covered. You can look at that and say that he's playing like a donkey, but he's the greatest player in the world."

Again drooling over Messi and rightfully so...

#1. He softens the hard corners of our lives just by watching him."

#2."Messi man....he could make the weeping willow cry."

LQQKin4u said...

Ray Hudson's creativity is like Leo Messi.....you can't wait what hes stirring up next!

Al said...

When Getafe tied Athletico Madrid 1-1, the primary assisting player went ... "ugly, dugly, juggly" ... when he tried a bicycle kick which became a pass.

Al said...

On Raul's goal vs. Sporting:

"A piece of beautiful, artistic finishing! I'm so pleased it's not a garbage-type of a goal!"

LQQKin4u said...

Phil: Now the coaches are down to relying on help from the heavens.
Ray: That's right divine intervention Phil, its a great thing.

and...

Its a little bit like heckle without the jeckle out there and danny is playing without leonel.

LQQKin4u said...

Phil: "It's a rather strong wind, about 13 miles an hour gust close to 20."
Ray: "There's a wind down there? Are you sure? I think its the crowds vocals that you see as the wind man!"

and...

Phil: "Casillas with the miscue and out for a corner."
Ray: "Obviously his halo slipped down over his head."

jape said...

Ray just blamed an Iker mishandle on "He must be listening to rap music on his headphones."

On Real Madrid's six-goal outburst vs. Betis in the first half:

"Time to call off this party before things get silly here!"

LQQKin4u said...

"Raul doesn't go for the low angle, he scoops it like a big dish of beautiful ice cream sunday."

"Mesi produces magic and the frenchman makes a big red baboons backside out of this finish..He usually puts them away with a blindfold smoking a cigarette.."

LQQKin4u said...

WTF?!?... so gol tv lost their feed today around the end of the first half of the real madrid game! So i ended up watching the rest of the game on some crappy stream =X (the rest of the game really got me missing ray hudson's commentary) =[
Anyway, at least i got a little taste of ray's golden words..

"De la Peña can pull rabbits out of his hats the size of grey hounds when he wants to!"

Behan01 said...

On Messi: "Swivel hips, like a Turkish stripper."

On a goal from Forlan: "And he says to Victor Valdes, 'How do you like those tomatoes?'"

LQQKin4u said...

Pre-game "This one is as juicy as an Alaskan salmon phil, and its going to be served up to us on a beautiful barbecue today."

on messi "Like he has itching powder down his shorts, he leaves everyone in his way."

LQQKin4u said...

"anonymous for the first 15 minutes messi, and then like a big illuminating million watt light bulb he just throws the switch."

Anonymous said...

In the athletico madrid game, after henry's goal, Phil think's it has deflected, and Ray is sure it hasn't to the point where he says "We'll take a look at the replay one more time, and if it's taken a deflection Phil, I'll buy you a milkshake"...haha. Phil tries to play along and asks for a "char grilled salmon" instead, a request Ray quickly strikes down with a simple "No". Hahahaha

LQQKin4u said...

I made an audio clip from one of ray's outbursts to phil about how you shouldn't use your hands to block your face from a free kick. Must listen its pretty funny =]

Im still a noob at podcasting and couldnt post the clip on the comment sorry!! but just copy the link to the address bar.

Phil Shane comments, "There`s no rest for the weary". Ray corrects him nicely, "I believe thats "No rest for the wicked, Phil....Book of Issiah".

You could have heard a pin drop in our livingroom...Ray quoting the Bible. 5 Stars!

Also,in the Bundesliga game on Saturday a Hudson gem..." Well,it as obvious as Barbara Streisands nose!"

AJ said...

It's WCQ time, and he's doing multiple matches!

Yee-hah!!!!

"You know how the referee's supposed to be the fittest in the country? His eyes aren't fit!"

"He was caught with his knickers down ... or was he fouled?"

"That's as clean as a cat's whiskers!"

PHIL: "What's 'magic water bottle' in Turkish?"
RAY: "I think it's 'magic water bottle.'"

"They'll want him back for Wednesday, so it'll be straight into the hot tub for him."

"Sergio Ramos steers it across with his thigh ... I don't know whether it was intentional or not, but who gives a damn?"

"Naughty words, but a pretty effort!"

notnowcato said...

Good AJ...Also, in the Germany-Liectenstien game Beck gets substituted and Ray says ,"I`s back to his club fotball now for Beck. His Team is FC HARD (long pause)... I can say no more."

Cue beer thru my nose !

Ray also said, "He's trying to be like the little Dutch boy plugging the holes in the dam, but doesn't have enough fingers."

"He comes out like a big Dutch windmill trying to claim the ball."

LQQKin4u said...

Describing ballacks goal from distance, against wales.. "That was a masterpiece, almost riquelme like ..(long pause)..almost.

then right after

Pablo Alsina just HAD to mention riquelme's departure to ray hudson >< lol! "Of course, riquelme no longer on the argentina national team."
ray annoyingly said "Ya we know! We know!!"

LQQKin4u said...

"...it was a real technicians goal, it wasn't just a hairy chested blast. It was precise and accurate to the 10th degree."

"Still have people saying that was never a penalty, i think its going to be debated till well...the moon turns to cheese."

"luca toni gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar by this wonderful ref, wonder if he's an eye doctor?"

then the ref doesn't call Schweinsteiger's clear penalty

"Well the first blot of his coffee book. Dr Drees(ref)make an appointment with the eye doctor!" lol

LQQKin4u said...

Ray referring to the bible again

"look at the 2 defenders frozen like Lot's wife, they just turn to salt"

notnowcato said...

Whats our boy doing in his spare time? All the Bible quotes...he gets this one wrong though but it was beautifully intended...(shot of Beckham in the seats during the Madrid-Valadolid game) "Looking for another twenty pieces of silver"..Got to be a reference to Judas and the way Beckham has betrayed MLS.30 Ray, not 20...but maybe he doesn`t think he`s worth the extra ten? LMAO.

LQQKin4u said...

Its super classico time and you know ray's on fire when he asks phil for an oxygen tank xD

"Their DNA in this team is richer than Northern Dancer. Its absolutely royal."

On Henry's first goal "The look of a warrior, but the touch of a belly dancer."

"Xavi needs no help, he needs help like a fish needs a bicycle!"

"You could have put the Bank of Engaland on messi scoring there."

Phil: "To the 30th min we go and we still have another hour to go!"
Then ray out of breath says, "Thank the good lord" lol

"Messi is in, like stouth wearing hush puppies"

"Sergio Ramos as free as a lark in the park"

"Again, its the cameleon eyes of Xavi. He's always the cerebral dictator!"

in the Superclasico he made some reference to how Henry "took the rotation of the Earth into consideration" during one of his goals.
