WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — D.C. United soccer is quickly becoming must-listen radio, if for no other reason than announcer Frank Hanrahan’s hilarious play-by-play calls.
First, there was Hanrahan’s call in United’s 1-0 home victory over Sporting KC on Saturday, May 31, in which Fabián Espíndola scored an unexpected goal, which seemed to even catch Hanrahan by surprise in the 28th minute.
“Espindola. Espindola the chip-in, to the areaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa … a goallllllllll for D.C. United, in the 28th minute. You gotta wonder, was that intentional, or was he trying to bait the defense into thinking it was just a cross? In fact, it was just a beautiful butterfly of a touch that goes over the paw of [Eric] Kronberg. Unbelievable shot.”
