We’ve seen the likes of Harry Carey and Mel Allen. The U.S. gets memorable voices like Marv Albert and Al Michaels. But if there’s one thing our country doesn’t have much of, it’s your really over the top sports announcers. Yes you have your outbursts from time to time. “There’s a steal by Bird!” will always ring in my heart (even though I’m a Knicks fan).
But any of you who know the “Goooaallllllll!” guy, you understand what I’m talking about here. And since right now we’re in the midst of World Cup madness and insane bouts of announcing it was time to shed light on these clips. From Japanese wrestling bouts to Danish handball, this crop of announcers finds a way to scream and be wacko in just about anything.
Check out these 5 ridiculously over the top announcer clips….
Crazed Soccer Dude
Let’s face it. This guy is insane but it’s 100% obvious his accent puts him over the top. If this guy were American I’m not sure he’d be on here. But who cares? It’s awesome.
Japanese Wrestling Announcer is Way to Into this
We think that the title of the video speaks for itself. This is truly disturbing. Japanese TV rules.
Pretty sure this guy just wanted to show off his singing chops.
Wow. Handball is Exciting
I think the fact that this is handball makes it even better. I definitely want to hang out with this guy.

Nothing for this year’s World Cup has even come close to this.
