major league 20090511025732171 000Some people sound like they’re cartoons.

Here are ten sports broadcasters who could easily voice a Muppet. Know more, particularly on the local level or internationally? Name them in the comments.

Tommy Smyth
MLS

Because he’s Irish, okay? And he’s announcing American soccer. And yes, they’re always after his Lucky Charms.

Bill Walton

I never actually heard him say a real word, it’s more like an extended DUUUUUUUUUUUH.

Andrés Cantor
Soccer

Cantor is famous for his signature call of “¬°GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLL!”, which he originated while working at Univisi√≥n, making him popular with American audiences. He first used it at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, but it became especially popular during the 1994 World Cup, which was held in the United States.

Lou Holtz
College Football

The Sports Junkies, four guys who host a D.C. area sports radio show, have an alternate meaning for ‘Lou Holtz.’ They’re talking about their junk (check it out on urbandictionary.com).

Craig Laughlin
NHL – Washington Capitals

Laughlin is a former professional hockey player and currently the color commentator for the Washington Capitals on Comcast SportsNet. Not only does he sound like he’s on helium, but he says funny things, like ‘He put the biscuit in the basket.’ I just hope he doesn’t see this as we’re both in the press area at the same time during Washington Capitals home games.

Yes, even the man who practically invented sports announcer broadcasting gets a place on this list.

The most famous man in Chicago sounded funnier and funnier the older he got. May he RIP.
