Hot Clicks' favorite Spanish-speaking football announcer is back. However, Gabriel Trujillo may have been trumped this week by the Cardinals English-speaking radio analyst. Both had the good fortunate to call LaRod Stephens-Howling's 52-yard game-winning touchdown catch in overtime against the Cowboys last Sunday. Trujillo was his typical solid self, screaming "TOUCHDOOOOOOOOOOWN" like a lunatic and yelling "ARIZONA, ARIZONA, ARIZONA" over and over. His American counterpart, Dave Pasch, had an excellent call of play, too. He kept referring to Stephens-Howling at "The Hyphen" which has to be one of the best nicknames in sports. His analyst, Ron Wofley, then jumped in at the end to describe the play and he called Stephens-Howling the "popcorn fart." Yes, the "popcorn fart."

Jonathan, of Logan, Utah, says. "So, you've acknowledged Utah State University's rabid fan base in the past. We're kind of a big deal. What you didn't know is that the rabids go right to the top. For your viewing pleasure, USU president Stan Albrecht cheering at a game." I have to say, this is pretty cool.
