The announcer could hardly keep himself together during this wild Gaelic football match.

If you think Gus Johnson loses control during a dramatic finish, wait until you hear this Gaelic football announcer crumble to pieces.

The amateur Gaelic football championship in County Wicklow, Ireland, on Sunday featured one of the most dramatic conclusions you’ll ever see in sports. 

Ballinacor took a two-point lead over Arklow Geraldines-Ballymoney on a penalty in injury time (goals, including penalties, are worth three points). “Jared Byrne has won this Intermediate Football Championship,” the announcer bellowed.

But not so fast. AGB brought the ball down to the other end of the field, and that’s when things got really crazy.

NFL ratings wouldn’t be declining if this guy was calling the action.
