'No señor!' Eagles' Spanish announcer loses it in win over Bears
No doubt, much of eastern Pennsylvania was rejoicing when the Bears' Cody Parkey missed the would-be winning field goal against the Eagles on Sunday night.
But perhaps no one was more elated than Rickie Ricardo, the Eagles' Spanish play-by-play announcer.
Listen to Ricardo's call as Parkey's 43-yard field-goal attempt hit the upright, then the cross bar and back out into the end zone, sealing the Eagles' 16-15 victory.
No translation necessary. That jubilation is self-explanatory.
Parkey made the kick on the previous snap, but the Eagles called a timeout to ice him just before the snap.
Here's Ricardo's call matched with the video of the missed kick.
Ricardo also was pretty exuberant on Golden Tate's go-ahead touchdown.
Feel bad for Parkey, if you will. But it's hard not to be excited for Ricardo, who we aren't sure got any sleep last night.
