Earlier today, as I looked for highlights of Real Madrid’s 4-0 win over Bayern Munich, I stumbled upon an interesting Foxsoccer.com video: “Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid: Best of Gus Johnson.” In it, Johnson, an accomplished basketball commentator, describes (or tries to describe) Real’s four goals. Clearly, Fox still loves this guy. Which is a shame, because, as far as I can tell, more than a year after calling his first Champions League game, Johnson has barely improved: I cringed when he announced that “Los Blancos can smell Lisbon.” He sounds like a man trying to prove to the world that he understands soccer — that he knows Real Madrid’s nickname and is confident enough to, you know, use it in a sentence.
