Ray Suárez es un verdadero periodista. Tras ascender superando dificultades en los años 70 y 80 -cuando la frase ‘reportero de televisión’ conjuraba imágenes de Mike Wallace y Harry Reasoner y no la de un muchacho puertorriqueño de Brooklyn- este veterano de 60 años es simplemente la norma a la que muchos jóvenes periodistas latinos aún aspiran. youtube.com

El gol de Geoff Hurst en la final del Mundial de 1966 o la mano de Diego Maradona en los cuartos de final del Campeonato del Mundo de 1986. Sin ir tan lejos, el gol de Sergio Ramos en fuera de juego en la final de la Champions League del año pasado o, hace menos de un mes, el penal a Luis Suárez en el Camp Nou que dio el pase en la misma competición al Barcelona sobre el Paris Saint-Germain…
