Landon Donovan scores for U.S. soccer, chaos ensues


Sally Jenkins wrote about the scene at Nevada Smith's in New York, and we showed you video of the bedlam at Lucky Bar after Landon Donovan's goal.

And how can we forget about Andres Cantor? GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL! Click for audio of his call.

Who wants more?

I think this one's my favorite. The woman in pink's reaction is fabulous.

I'm not embarassed to say I get tears in my eyes everytime I see a replay of that goal. Those reactions are incredible.

Good stuff, brings back memories of 2002 squeezing into Summers 4 hours before kickoff and having it all be worth it when the US upset Portugal. Unfortunately had to watch yesterday's match at home.

Jenkins description of those stupid horns is great:

""From somewhere in the middle of the crowd came a weakly, flatulent blast from a lone vuvuzela""

speaking of tears, we're finding out very quickly who these spanish announcers from US spanish networks were really for. Sure their networks cover mexico one end to the next, inside and out, but you could clearly hear cantor crying on the goal call. The same was true of the tall guy from Univision's TV coverage. As someone who hates the mexican team, and who wishes these US spanish networks would cover the US team and MLS alot more, its nice for me to hear which team their hearts are with.

For some reason there is no audio link when I pull up the Andres Cantor page. Anyone have an alternate URL?

Cantor isn't mexican so he didn't fit in at univision - One vision, a mexican one.

The Andres Cantor clip is absolutely outstanding. For a guy who calls soccer goals all the time, you can tell he really means this one. He's clearly personally invested and it shines through. Fantastic!

Good stuff but that's not Andres Cantor - he works for Telemundo now.

The voice doing play by play for Univision is Pablo Ramirez and the commentary is Jesus Bracamontes. Very familiar voices to those of us who watch Concacaf qualifiers, MLS games and Mexican league games on the Univision/Telefutura broadcasts.
