Preview: Talking with Ray Hudson

We will be fortunate enough this Saturday to talk with Ray Hudson on Soccer Saturday presented by the Milwaukee Wave, which you can listen to on ESPN 540 AM in Milwaukee and Chicago from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. local time. The one-hour show also is made available in podcast segments online at the link above.

Obviously, Colin and I are giddy at the chance to talk to the man who gave us the following descriptions while commentating during matches:
• "What he is is like something out of Greek mythology, man. A little short-legged bull, Lionel Messi, covered with eyes."
• "Magnificent by Higuaín again. He stretches the defence of Racing Santander like spandex on Miami Beach."
• "This is a hundred gigabytes of skill in a nanosecond ... the finish cooler than Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, Phil."

And that's just what is immediately available at the Live Ray Hudson Twitter feed.

If you have any thoughts or questions you'd be interested in hearing Ray tackle, please leave them in the comments and we'll try to fit them in.

Oh, OK, one more older one: “Look at him, so languid. Look at him walking. He’s like a big beautiful zombie, a big beautiful zombie. Riquelme. He just strolls around languidly like smoke off a cigarette, and then he’ll jump out and just draw your blood”.

Lastly, here's a little video I like to call: "It's like two beautiful birds singing in my ribcage!"

Does Ray have a favorite team that REALLY gets him going, or is he just a fan of football in any way/shape/form?

"Get out of your Barça-loungers everywhere and behold magnificence ..."

I mean, good lord, what terrific fun.

Billy said...

You should ask Ray if he can use the word "Majesterial" again, but in a sentence that isn't describing a goal. I bet it's not possible :-)

Which match has Ray enjoyed the most so far this season? (And why!)

Jim said...

Thank you for the suggestions. We appreciate it.

The interview will last for about 10 minutes. Wish it could go for an hour or more. We'll try to get to everything we can with Ray.

"Like Betamax, they don't make 'em like him anymore."

He said it about Ronaldinho, but I think it applies to the man himself. I'm genuinely jealous of you guys! While there are tons of things I'd love to ask or tell, Kuba has me intrigued. Being a Geordie I'd think he's, at heart, a Toon fan. However, he seems to have a real passion for the Spanish game and many of La Liga's players.
