Is there a soccer fan who doesn’t love hearing Ray Hudson commentate on games? I know I personally enjoy the whimsical and often theatrical punditry from the Englishman and it got me thinking – what would Ray Hudson sound like if he started reviewing boots during games?
Kicking things off, I thought we would start with any Barcelona game and the boots of one Lionel Messi – the Adidas F50 adiZero. Here are some of the things I would expect the self proclaimed Verbal gymnast to spurt out:
The gods around Footballers’ Heaven are looking down and saying, ‘It doesn’t get any better than those Red boots that Messi has on’! Defenses can’t live with those accelerating machines; and we can’t live without him! They are designed to absolutely pulverizes the defense and leaves them in acid, thus the colorway!
By simply wearing these boots, Messi has set the bar so high I think he’ll be in the Olympics for Argentina doing the pole vault, and he’ll win it!
Have you ever seen Messi make a big soup sandwich out of a finish when one vs one with a keeper? Well if you have, he must have been wearing a pair of Piques boots.
Messi’s left leg is like a big hypodermic needle – always ready to get stuck in. I’m just surprised there is no blood covering the front of his red boots! Wait….is that blood?
This is where the insane becomes the routine with this man. I’m starting to think that his boots are nothing less than ball whisperers.
Everyone is looking for a pair of boots that pulls everything together. Well look no further than the laces used on these boots – the thin Kevlar pulls things together like a mother clutching her kids during a hurricane.
Oh there will be players watching who want a pair of Messi’s boots after this game. But be warned, this is the type of boot you need to jump on quicker than a jackrabbit on a hot date if you want a pair.
Thank you Mr. Hudson for your candid and fantastically entertaining commentary!
