That was super, super cool of Vin. We're so lucky to have such awesome broadcasters in L.A.
THREE HoF announcers we had all at the same time for a while; it really spoiled me. I've gotten so used to Bob and Vinny's voices over the games that I never really get used to other people calling them. Even Laker games after all these years, I still miss Chicky. Other announcers just sound... wrong somehow.
Also, I can't wait for Foxy to shove his ring into that dumba** Hayward's face :p What a tool that guy is.
Such interesting stories on this interview I'd never heard before. Around 23:00 in, Bob notes that after AEG bought the team he wasn't sure if he'd still be employed, and actually inquired to Phoenix about being their announcer as the Jets were moving to Phoenix that year... and how Leiweke heard about it and would have none of it. Great stuff.
I remember those rumors of Bob going to Phoenix back in the late 90s. This was when the future of the team was uncertain and there will all types of rumors, from the Kings moving to Las Vegas to their new arena being built in the parking lot of Hollywood Park (thank God that didn't happen!).
