The Imperative Balboa


Why I hate Marcelo Balboa as a soccer commentator on ESPN and ABC:
  • Every sentence is an imperative phrase. "You have to like..."
  • I disagree with 90% of Cello's imperative sentences.
  • He puts this wicked accent on the first or second syllable of every sentence.
  • His hair.
  • His continual references to his 1990 World Cup experience.
