Philly Soccer Show: A Familiar Voice In The Booth

By Greg Orlandini

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — He’s making the transition from slam dunks to headers. The voice of the Philadelphia 76ers, Marc Zumoff, is the guest on the KYW Philly Soccer Show. With usual Union play-by-play announcer JP Dellacamera in Canada to call the Women’s World Cup, Zumoff has been in the booth the last couple games. He talks about his interest in soccer, and what it’s like going from hoops to the beautiful game.

Then Kevin Kinkead from CBS-3 joins the talk. We break down the last couple games from the Union. They picked up a strong win at home against Columbus Crew FC 3-0 only to follow it up with a 2-1 loss again at home to the lowly NYCFC. We also talk Women’s World Cup as the U.S. ladies beat Australia 3-1 in their first game.
