AUSTIN, Texas -- You know youre good when Dr. Rubén Pizarro-Silva gives you a nickname.Like Colt Pistolas McCoy. Jordan La Liebre Shipley was The Hare. Derrick Johnson was El Comandante, The Commander. Charlie Strong is simply El Jefe.Texas running back DOnta Foreman doesnt really go by any nicknames on a daily basis, but surely college footballs leading rusher deserves one. That one came easy for Pizarro while admiring Foremans running style.Listen to a Longhorns en Espa?ol broadcast on Saturdays this fall and youll hear Pizarro excitedly bellow it out: TOUCHDOWN LONGHORNS! TOUCHDOWN DONTA EL BúFALO FOREMAN!Pizarro is the Spanish-language voice of the Longhorns, serving the fútbol americano fans of a state in which nearly 40 percent speak Spanish. Hes been doing this since 1995, long before this service became more popular in college football.Funny enough, its really his side job. Pizarro is a medical physician during the week. He got into sports broadcasting to help pay his way through his residency in Monterrey, Mexico, almost 30 years ago.The broadcasting, I dont know, its just very addictive, Pizarro said. You want to do it better every day, every time you go on the air. God provided me with a skill set I didnt know I had.He got to Austin on a whim, selected in a casting call for a co-host gig of Super Show Deportivo, a Spanish sports show in 1994 and 1995 sponsored by NFL Films. Hed sworn off the media side when he finished his residency, wanting to focus on the sports medicine profession. But the broadcasting business sucked him right back in.Pizarro has called NFL games, Stanley Cup finals, all-star games, even minor league baseball, but he fell in love with Texas football. He attended the Longhorns 1978 Sun Bowl game in El Paso, Texas, and says he was captivated by the logo, the helmet, the brand.Hed never been to a Texas home game until 1995, his first year of the job. He began this humble operation as the color commentator for select games, then shifted to play-by-play after a few seasons. By 1997, Texas was broadcasting all games, home and away, in Spanish. What started with one local AM station has grown and grown. Austin became the states first market to have a Spanish-language sports station a decade ago.I know the Dallas Cowboys had Spanish broadcasts in the 1990s, but it was a novelty back then and it was an unusual thing, said Craig Way, Texas English-language play-by-play man. And you never heard about it in college football. When it started here, I thought it was Texas being ahead of the curve.Today, Texas Spanish-language calls are available to an international audience thanks to online streaming, and some games get picked up by Sirius XM. Pizarro continues to be amazed by the growing distribution and acknowledges that, when he started, he was doing this for almost no money and for the spirit more than the pocket.That worked for him, because this is still just one of his many jobs. Pizarro never strayed from the medical field. He works with a local cardiologist in the mornings. Then he preps for his three-days-a-week sports newscast on Univision. He has a 30-minute Sunday night show, too, called Contacto Deportivo Extra for which he hosts, produces, writes, edits and turns the lights off when I finish.With three or four jobs, Ive raised three daughters and paid for college for them, he says proudly. Its been so good.On Saturdays, hes at his finest. Pizarro calls games with his color commentator, Jesus Mendoza, and producer Oscar Meza. His youngest daughter, Daniela, joins him in the booth to do the ad reads and serve as a spotter-in-training.The best way to describe his broadcasts might be pure enthusiasm. Way, the English-language voice of the Longhorns, appreciates the more passionate and narrative nature of the way Pizarro sees and calls games.The way he calls a game is different, and the whole Spanish style of calling it is different, Way said. Rubén is a bit more of a storyteller with it. Its a different way of telling it, but its the way that translates best to his audience. He knows his audience.Hes still a bit of a rarity even in the Big 12. TCU started doing Spanish-language broadcasts in 2010, and Oklahoma began its operation last year. The press boxes they visit usually arent meant to accommodate an extra radio crew, so theyve accumulated a long list of tales from their road trips with the Longhorns.Pizarro called Texas BCS title game win over USC from the roof of the Rose Bowl, right underneath the light towers and right next to the snipers in place as a precaution to watch over the crowd. Hes confident he kept them entertained.Theyd hear us raising our voices and getting agitated during the game, he said, and they smiled.A roof over his head can be a luxury some Saturdays. Over the years, he jokes, hes become a rooftop specialist. Hes called a game in the snow in Lincoln, Nebraska. He once sat in a black trash bag to stay warm in cold drizzle and hard wind at the Cotton Bowl. He laughs about the time some inebriated and confused Iowa State fans heckled him in Ames, Iowa. This season, at Cal, he couldnt get a radio booth so he and Mendoza loudly called the game from press box seats next to the NFL scouts.Hes leaned on and learned from Way, whom he calls my English brother. Way calls him Doc and has a deep respect for his counterparts work ethic. His devotion to his role is pretty amazing, Way says, when you realize Pizarro still considers himself a physician most days of the week.I didnt expect to get to this, Pizarro said. But what I have done is do your next show like it will be your last one. Make it the best, because you dont know if youre going to be there tomorrow. If you do it that way, youre going to keep improving.Pizarro has cherished seeing Spanish-language college football broadcasting slowly spread to more schools. He dreams of making Mexico the loudest burnt orange fans outside of the United States and hopes to convert more Texas fans throughout the world, one passionate touchdown call and nickname at a time. Goran Dragic Jersey . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. Alonzo Mourning Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.authenticbasketballshopheat.com/chris-bosh-heat-jersey/ . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. Tim Hardaway Jersey . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. Tyler Johnson Jersey . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday.Midtjylland manager Jess Thorup insists the price of tickets for Thursdays Europa League clash with Manchester United is fair. Fans are being charged £71 each to watch the last-32 first leg tie at the 11,800-capacity MCH Arena and United supporters are planning a protest against the cost during the match.Southampton fans were charged just £22 when their team played the Danish champions at the same venue in the Europa League play-off round in August. I think this is probably the biggest game in the history of this club, Thorup said.And I am very satisfied the club have decided to play here - we could have moved the game to a bigger stadium to get more spectators and maybe earn some more money, but we decided to play here.I havent heard a lot from our own fans about the price. Although I hear everyone is paying the same price, I think it is maybe a fair price. Anthony Martial and Morgan Schneiderlin depart from Manchester Airport But I dont think I have to get into an argument about this.dddddddddddd I hope, at least, that everybody gets some value for their money.Thorups comments echo those of Midtjylland sports director Claus Steinlein.Quoted by Danish news agency Ritzaus Bureau, he said: Overall, we can say we could have sold over 50,000 tickets for this match. So in relation to supply and demand, the price might have been even higher.This is what it costs to see such a match. So I think, in fact, we have been fair, and weve certainly had no trouble selling tickets. Also See: Rooney misses Europa trip Who are Midtjylland?
