So everyone has probably seen Maradona's famous goal against England. But maybe fewer have seen it with the original Argentine commentary. Suffice it to say, I almost put this in the "beast" thread for the announcer alone. The dude absolutely loses his mind, nothing in US sports announcing is like that. Which is a shame, cause it's awesome.

Translation of what he says (Guga can correct me if I mess anything up):

"They're going to pass to Diego, now Maradona has it, two defenders on him. Maradona touches the ball. The genius of world football starts to his right. He leaves the third behind and is going to pass to Burruchaga. No Maradona was always going to keep it! Genius! Genius! Genius! It's there it's there it's there it's there it's there and GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! GOOOOOOOOAL! GOOOOOOOOOAL! I WANT TO CRY! HOLY GOD! LONG LIVE FOOTBALL! GOLAZO!* DIEGO! MARADONA! IT'S MOVING ME TO TEARS, FORGIVE ME! MARADONA, IN AN UNFORGETTABLE RUN, IN THE GREATEST PLAY OF ALL TIME, COSMIC LITTLE BARREL,** WHAT PLANET DID YOU COME FROM, TO LEAVE SO MANY ENGLISHMEN IN YOUR WAKE? TO BRING THE WHOLE COUNTRY TOGETHER IN A TIGHT FIST? SHOUTING FOR ARGENTINA! ARGENTINA 2, ENGLAND 0! DIEGOAL! DIEGOAL! Diego Armando Maradona. Thank you God, for football, for Maradona, for these tears, for this Argentina 2, England 0.

*There's no one-word translation for "golazo." It basically means "really awesome goal."
**He literally calls him a "cosmic little barrel," but he means that Maradona is short and stubby.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
