Knew I'd see some reactions to that post...speaking to Kolbe about Capitals stuff, very nice guy. Not a fan of listening to his game calling like many of you, but outside of that, I hope he's ok and there isn't anything more to this (no, I don't know anything, just noting.)
The Caps would never win a cup with Kolbe calling the games on radio.
Walton...send in the resume!
Funny you should say that. The only Cap's playoff game I was forced to listen to on radio rather than watch on TV was the Montreal game 7 in 2010. My sister had a college awards ceremony and when it was time for dinner part, I went out to listen to the game on XM Radio. I turned it on right when Mike Green took a penalty and Montreal scored. Of all the Kolbe calls, I will remember that one the most. I remember saying out loud, "Damn you Mike Green". Then after the that, for some odd reason the car battery died and I didn't make it home except to see the last minute of the 3rd period play .
Along with Walton, some people are suggesting the Atlanta radio guy, now former Atlanta radio pbp...Dan Kamal - recognize the name, but can't say I've listened to any Atlanta radio broadcasts, any opinions? (Kamal is also a former Hershey radio guy)
Say no to Thorne.
As I posted in the other thread, Kolbe was a very nice person when I spoke with him off the ice. Hopefully all is ok and this is a money issue or another job opportunity; that is assuming he is leaving the Caps, which isn't confirmed at this point, although sure looks like it.
Although there's the be careful what you wish for aspect, I won't mind having someone new to listen to when listening to Caps games on the radio.
