Sheer Ecstasy

Many of us are used to our broadcasters having their own comfy little booths or suites at the stadiums to call the big games. Your own cameras, your own assistants etc.  However, with 32 teams at this tournament and an entire planet stopping in their tracks for each game, clearly there's nowhere near enough personal broadcasting booths. 

So they throw them all into a mosh pit of sorts - scores of different languages and personalities screaming and moaning at the top of their lungs one next to the other.  This is how the two men covering Spain's Telecinco broadcast called it. The guy on the left is José Antonio Camacho - manager of Osasuna who play in Pamplona (running of the bulls).
