I enjoyed watching the clip and I got a kick out of his format and set-ups in a "WTF nonsense" way. It makes for a good comedy sketch. But yeah, most of these are gratuitous pop culture references and there is almost zero wit here. Perhaps only two or three make sense in context. I can almost see the list of IMDB excerpts on his desk next to his mike. He might as well go all out and say the most surreal, dadaist and senseless sentences possible after a goal.
Wow, listening to that garbage actually makes me appreciate the old farts HNIC keeps trotting out. I would rather listen to Bob Cole screw up than either of the announcers linked in this thread... or Rick Jeanneret for that matter.
Ya hes great he actually played in the nhl as a defencemen with a few teams including flo and the quebec nordiques. They have a special on nhl network showing all the announcers through the league and him and the pittsburgh guy have got to have the greatest calls in hockey lol
