30 Years of Foley

http://blackhawks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=658101

Figured this thread could contain some of Foley's best. From the Wee-Knee comment to him telling Karpovtsev how it really was, Foley is by far my all time favorite play by play guy.

This should have happened a long time ago. Best in the NHL AINEC as far as I am concerned.

2011 is the earliest it would've been had they not let him go for those 2 years.

Like I said. Those 2 years sucked. Kelly was awful and Foley IS the Hawks. It's like Stone with the Cubs; another wrong that needs to be corrected. It doesn't look good on that front, maybe somewhere down the line.

The whole thing was offensive.

I gotcha. When I think long time I usually think longer than 2 years. And yeah, Kelly was unbelievably terrible.

"Great Save Thibault!"

That's the only thing I remember from when I started listening to Blackhawks games on the radio while doing homework.

If I have to pick one, the road game in Pittsburgh after we traded Chelios. Love how he tells it like it is regardless.

I had a dream a couple days ago where Pat Foley had me over to his house for dinner and what I thought was just him and I sharing Hawk memories turned into all these Hawk legends showing up, Belfour, Savard, J.R., Chelly, Mikita I didn't want to wake up!

Thanks for posting this. Hilarious!

Pat and Dale together were the best. Anybody remember their seats at the old stadium? They were pretty much tacked on to the side of the balcony over the ice. I remember sitting right by them a couple of times and watching them climb over the rail and down to their spot.

Went to bed many a night in the 80s listening to those two guys call the games past my bedtime. Loved the west coast trips, but I'd be pretty wiped at school the next day.

Foley is a legend... Remember listening to games with my father on WIND....
Great that the Hawks are giving him his due.

I'm 35 years old...and all I've known in a life time filled with Hawks hockey, has been Pat Foley. I will truly be at a loss when I can't tune into a Hawks game and not hear Foley's voice. Truth is...I hope I die before Foley retires. And if I don't, I surely will shortly after because I just won't be able to endure play by play from anyone else. LIstening to broadcasts back in the day with Foley and Tallon was just golden.

I remember tuning in to WBBM on the AM dial when I was a kid and listening to games against a North Stars team with Modano, Bellows, Churla, Hatcher...a Blues team with Hull, Janney, and Riendeau...Wings teams with the usual suspects.... Growing up with hockey on the radio was such an experience. I almost wish I could tune in on the radio out here in Philly.
