Classy Emrick One 'Hall' Of A Hockey Broadcaster

August 3rd 2011 13:45
So many broadcasters work so many sports these days it is sometimes difficult to tell them apart

Not Mike Emrick, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame over the weekend.

Whether it's international competition or the NHL on NBC or New Jersey Devils games "locally", Emrick's voice goes with hockey like a lump of vanilla ice cream goes with apple pie.

Mike Steps Up
Mike Emrick

Only Emrick, for instance, can include a word like "dancing" into his play-by-play and have it sound OK.

Unlike some broadcasters, OK Kevin Harlan in the NBA, Emrick isn't constantly in a state of breathless excitement.

But when the situation calls for it, Emrick gets plenty excited and has a solid goal call that can leave goosebumps.

Emrick and the perennial championship contending Devils are a great fit.

Much like Devs legendary goalie Martin Brodeur, Emrick has gotten the job done.

Emrick's Hall call was well deserved.

Yeah, Mike Emrick is without a doubt one of the greatest broadcasters in all of sports.

Nice how he compliments game instead of overwhelming it, right? (like Chris Berman)

I think Boomer is the most overrated announcer out there. He's full of himself and puts other people down because they are- according to him- "not smart enough about football". Boomer is just a name who can't analyze the sport all that well.
