“Larry se va … hasta su casa!”

Posted by Darren Urban on September 22, 2011 – 10:57 am

It started, as these things often do, with an over-the-top touchdown call. It’s what Gabriel Trujillo does, calling Spanish play-by-play for the Cards (for now a 12th season). And as he usually does, Trujillo provided a memorable call as quarterback Kevin Kolb hit Larry Fitzgerald for a 73-yard touchdown.

Our radio producer/guru Jim Omohundro then made sure the world knew. He not only tweeted it out but gave an e-mail heads up to Darren Rovell, the MSNBC sports business guy who loves stuff just like this. So Rovell picked it up and tweeted it out. And so did before they put it on one of their pages. Fitz retweeted it too, to his 916,000-plus followers. (UPDATE: And now I am hearing Fox is going to use the call on their pregame show. UPDATE 2: And Jim Rome just played it on his radio show, asking his producer to book Gabriel. Now that would be a segment.)

Oms has made sure over the years Cards fans have heard Trujillo’s greatest hits, but this is by far the most run one of his calls has gotten nationally. If you’re ever looking to get a different taste of the Cards’ game — with all due respect to Dave Pasch and Ron Wolfley — you can hear what Trujillo and analyst Rolando Cantu have to say on ESPN Deportes 710 AM here in the Valley.

    This is great! I love hearing his calls when they play it on The Big Red Rage. Good to see that he’s getting some much deserved media attention.

    sunday is gonna be great too see larry break the td record for the cards, im sure he will get a td. we need to keep making big plays on offense on a consitsant basis an outscore oppenents due to our defense adjusting to this new scheme, theres a reason why haggans is now playing really good, he knows the scheme cuz hes an ex steeler, everybody should be playing better hopefully as the weeks progress.
