You can put me down on that list. This thread just spells out a rant on my behalf at some point. Can't stand listening to these 2 clowns night-in and night-out. I'm pretty sure Errey's just drunk most of the time. Now granted Lange would also be drunk most of the time, but at least it's a voice we can appreciate. Several years later and I still maintain that Lange and Bourque should be the ones doing television broadcasts.
He probably calls him "Talbo" because Errey does, who probably calls him "Talbo" because it's his nickname.
As for the "Bieska" thing though, yeah, that was pretty annoying. I could understand calling him that a couple times early in the game, but you would think by the third period someone would have corrected him. Guess not.
Tell Steigy to watch Kings broadcasts to see how a real play-by-play guy (Bob Miller) operates.
You are so right on this one!! Spent 13 years of my life in SoCal and they are probably my favorite team to follow not from Pittsburgh. Miller is hands down my favorite to listen to. CI is a great thing!!
Not necessarily. It can also be pronounced "Tal-BUTT". In this case, it's Tal-BUTT.
Oh, I know "Tal-butt" is perfectly fine.
But if you ask any french to pronounce the name he will most likely say "talbo".(at least, that's the way we call the former automobile brand ->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talbot)
No big deal, I prefer the "Tal-butt" version anyway.
