Iceland announcer with the best call in sports history

Iceland has been the Cinderella story in this year’s Euro Cup, and today they made history by becoming the first team to not lose in the group stage in a Euro debut. Iceland now moves on to the knockout stage, but they needed some late heroics to defeat Austria to advance.

Iceland’s announcer lost his damn mind as it all unplayed in the final minute. If I had been in Tom Leach’s seat when Aaron Harrison hit the three-pointer against Wisconsin, the radio call would’ve sounded exactly like this:

Fun fact: Iceland has the same population as Lexington and they’re in the Round of 16 in the Euros. That’s pretty remarkable.

    Pretty sure all of you are wrong, that was clearly John Cleese. Didn’t know he spoke Icelandic so well.

    I like soccer in those few seconds when they score. You can keep the other 89 minutes.

    That guy sounds like “Elephant Boy” from the Howard Stern Show.
