What They're Saying: Leonardo Uranga

“We wanted people to be able to follow the game in a more relaxed way. The doctor was there to give tips to people who were listening, to remind them not to eat too much, to get plenty of exercise beforehand, to drink lots of water and not so much alcohol.”

-- Leonardo Uranga, the commentator for Radio AM550, on calling the first leg of the Boca Juniors-River Plate series in the Copa Libertadores final, considered the most important final in the history of Argentine soccer.

Uranga and broadcast partner Eduardo Caimi were joined by a cardiologist, Gonzalo Diaz Babio, to offer advice to listeners with heart conditions. (New York Times)
