A friend of mine is the PA announcer at the 67's and will be an official announcer at the Vancouver games, Carol Beaudry.

I just want to add my thanks to Goulz for the information. Very nice of you to post here, it gives us a bit of a behind the scenes look at things, really cool.

Now, of course, we'll be expecting reports after every game you do

Hope to read you more often, about any topic.

I miss the Expos' announcer, what has become of him? Only he could fill up the cavernous reverb of the Big O!

Saturday, after the Canadiens were penalized for the 5th time in the first period, I heard the loudest boos ever in the Bell Centre! But to see them coming back in the 3rd period was great.

As for last night, that win has put smiles on so many faces! It's great to see.

Usually, when I work games, I show up about two hours before the game. I work out pronunciations, put the lineups into my scoresheet (on my laptop - Michel still uses paper), grab a bite to eat at the Jacques-Beauchamp lounge, then proceed downstairs for the warmup. Minor officials bring me the starting lineups, I contact the game presentation department to set things up for the giant screen, and the show starts exactly at 12:50 on the game clock.

Welcome, officials, minor officials, starting line-up for visitors... videos... kids on the ice with the flags (officially known as "Be part of the team"), then... when the starting goalie leaves the dressing room (which is straight across from my position on the bench)... it's time!

Intro our starting line-up, the siren goes, then the anthems and it's gametime!
Wow! Thanks for giving us all this background info. I can't believe how much work goes into your preparation just to be the PA guy.

I don't mean to demean your job it's just that I never realized the amount of prep work required to do your job. I appreciate your post and will definitely respect the work that comes with the performance of your duties!! I'll look for your posts in the future...your insight is invaluable.

Hey Goulz, love the info!! one favor though... Can you help Benoit Brunet with last name pronounciation? I just cant stand him calling the players on a first name basis.

Or you can just kick him in the nads... whichever is easier.

In the penalty box, the view is great... except in the near corners, where it's zero.

About once a game, we do get hit in the glass right in front of us...

What a bump! Can't stand anyone but Michel. Neering Claude Mouton territory.

I also noticed that he wasn't there right from the get-go. It's like eating food without salt. You know when it's missing.

Sucked isn't the right word. We just aren't used to him, and its a huge difference in voice tone, which makes the change even more blatant.

I'm sure if we had this replacement PA announcer for a whole calendar year, we would get used to him.
