(YouTube)   I don't understand Portuguese, but I think the announcer is pretty excited by Ronaldo's hat trick that put Portugal in the World Cup   (youtube.com) divider line 33

Perhaps the best individual performance in this Cups qualifying.

And Ronaldo wasn't bad, either.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic said the 2014 WC will be nothing without him. Guess he should have scored one more goal.

Two with his left foot and one with his right. That's just incredible.

LOL, I love Gus, I do.  They should let the WC be commentated by a someone who's done it before (read: Martin Tyler).

Like why Ronaldo scored in the 9th minute of 6 minutes of stoppage time?

I just think of it as a really nasally version of Spanish, and ignore any of the words I don't understand.  So far, I've only been thrown into jail in Rio 4 times.

That's the Brazilian Portuguese accent/dialect, we joke with them that they are always singing instead of talking. Portuguese from Portugal sounds harsh and can be confused with Arabic because of ssshhh sound. The Spanish in Extremadura and Galicia understand us most of the time but the other Spaniards look at us like we're talking martian.

How do you say "douchebag" in Portuguese?

"Cristiano Ronaldo."

I'll just make a wild guess here but I'm assuming soccer announcers are so nuts over goals because they are trying to overcompensate for how completely boring the sport is the other 99.9% of the time and a majority of the rare shots on goal miss by a good 30 feet, even at the highest level.

I haven't watched four minutes of soccer yet, and I'm not about to start now.

Viva Portugal!

\half(ish) Portuguese ancestry
\\yeah, Ronaldo's all over my Facebook feed right now
\\\doubt my first-generation Portuguese-American brother in law could even recognize half of that

THIS!

Some guy takes a shot that wouldn't on net if the goal was twice as big and the announcer is shrieking like he's getting a red hot poker shoved up his ass.  Everybody involved with this sport needs to take Xanax regularly.

I'm more freaked out by the weird outer space sound fx playing in the background...

Maybe he's trying to out-do Ronaldo in the douchebag competition because he didn't produce more goals than Ronaldo.

When it comes to being a feminine hygiene product on the field, Zlatan can't be beat. off the field I'd say its a toss-up.

Well surely you must be an authority beyond question in this divisive issue.

Care to explain why?

Reminds me of the Honduran radio announcers in 2009 after a last second US goal against Costa Rica qualified Honduras for the World Cup.

Is that why NFL players celebrate every 3 yard run or generic first down catch?  To draw attention away from the fact that you're watching 15 minutes of "action" interspersed iamong 3.5 hours of television commercials and standing around?
