My friends dad gets most peoples names wrong or else calls them somone else. It's hilarious. If our one other friend is there we have to try pretty hard to hold in the laughter. Some hilights.....Belfour=Ballford...Kiprussoff=Kypreos .....Chara=Churla.....Rem Murray=Trent Murray(my favorite)...Marchant=Marchment(and vice versa).....and the list goes on.
When Mark Recchi, Mike Ricci and Joe Reekie were all in the NHL, that was always fun for the announcers. Or how about Shayne Corson, Jimmy Carson and Reed Larson?
But the one I loved was the recent Oleg Kvasha-Alexei Yashin-Arron Asham line for the Islanders last season. Bonus salary should go to the announcers for getting those straight!
Oh, and last but not least ANY name that Gary Thorne THINKS he sees the number for, but is wrong. How many times is he going to just blurt out a name of a player who's either A) on the bench at the time, or B) shoots right when the player with the puck shoots left??? Oh, if I had a dollar...
