An English speaker's Univision World Cup Primer?

I am watching the World Cup on Univision, and am excited to understand as much of the commentary as I do, but would love to understand more. Where can I find common words/phrases?

In case it matters: I speak Spanish well enough to chat with a two year old whose first language is Spanish. I'm learning, but not far along yet.
Does anyone know of a good place online for me to learn the phrases or words I'm specifically likely to hear during a Univision broadcast of a World Cup game? I'm perfectly happy if it's the soccer section of a larger "Spanish for dummies" site, or if it's just some soccer enthusiast with a blog post about listening to the game in another language.
Bonus points if it's specifically related popular Univision announcers who have their own favorite sayings (like Tommy Smyth and the ol' onion bag)
