Andres Cantor's "GOOOOL!" Goes To 11. Then Again, It Should: He Owns It

Andres Cantor is the guy who gave birth to "¡Gooooool!" when he started using it during the 1990 World Cup. It quickly launched him to the stratosphere and by 1994 he was the most popular and well known sports announcer, and you know the rest of the story.

He no longer works at Univision, but he still does radio.

And aren't we still thankful for that. Because as amazing as the Univision announcer's call of the famous USA goal was, Cantor's call on the radio will bend your mind, and makes the Univision call sounds like Thom Brenneman calling the Sugar Bowl by comparison.
