World Cupdate

So it seems that the soccer announcer referenced in our previous WC post, the man who yelled
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL! is dead. The crack research staff here at MOTN failed to catch that on the first pass. Muchos Gracias to the reader who alerted us to the oversight (and our errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar).

Andres Cantor , the Argentinian-born Spanish language sportscaster, died on April 21, 2003.
In addition to his signature ¬°GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL! call, Cantor
was known for, whenever a game reached halftime or ended, delivering the line
El arbitro dice que no hay tiempo para mas ("The referee says there is no more time")

No word on whether that was the epitaph on his headstone, but wouldn't that have been great if it was?
