VIDEO - The upside of those silly sideline coaches' interviews

American sports TV producers think fans love to hear coaches talk about what's going right and what's going wrong. And while there's nothing objectionable about these types of interviews, they usually result in empty cliches and lack any real insight into a coach's or team's mindset.

In most sports these interviews take place as the football or basketball coach is heading into the locker room or return from it on either side of halftime, but since soccer's action is continuous and there's a need to air commercials and halftime highlights and plugs the sideline interview takes place in-game.

Usually they're just as mundane as their other sporting counterparts, but this time Portland Timbers' head coach John Spencer provided the small upside when Darlington Nagbe picked up the equalizer against FC Dallas last night's 1-1 game in the middle of one of these in-game chit chats

Loads of euphoria.

American soccer is pretty cool.

  1. by watching this video and looking at the narrator, all I can say is that: what a passionate way to narrate a soccer match!! it is so motivating and inspiring to listen to that guy talking so passionately about the game
