World Cup: It's a funny game

The 2014 World Cup has the world transfixed. Football officiandos, newcomers to the sport... it seems like everyone is being swept away by the nationalism, the passion and the emotion of what is described by some as the greatest show on Earth.

And it's not just the fans who are caught up in the emotion.

World Cup Soccer commentators have only one goaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal – and that is to be as accurate and entertaining as possible. But a couple of these football callers we checked out on social media from over the years score on just being plain nuts: 

Spanish commentators losing it

More quality work by the Spanish commentators (from the week before)

The Spanish.... again

This one features an Aussie game.

How about some Kiwi commentators?

This from a Germany-Italy game (an advertisement but still good)

...and some epic Mexican work.

Not actually World Cup, but still good.
