Friday, February 20, 2009
It's been a busy week. I sort of had to scramble to come up with something to fill my exhausting weekly quota of one whole post, but then I remembered this post about the Hockey Hall of Fame that I started more than a month ago and then abandoned. I don't have time to give it a full write-up (overall, thumbs up!), but please enjoy some clips of what was definitely my favorite part. My brother and I had tons of fun calling different plays in the HHoF makeshift broadcast booth. Here are the highlights of our highlights:
My reenactment of a Mike Lange call.
My tribute to Alex Ovechkin's famous, unparalleled passion for hockey.
(Excuse my lack of diction [bad actor!], the lyrics are "And I will be the one to hold the sport of hockey down...")
Rick Nash is cool as a cucumber.
Marty Brodeur is batty as a bat.
(Once again, excuse the giggles, we were feeling super loopy by this point.)
Maybe next week I'll be able to get back to writing about actual current hockey, although the text I just got from my mom suggests I might not want to. Apparently Jeremy White on WGR has started calling Hecht the new Dmitri Kalinin. Great. Clearly Yo-Yo has stopped accepting my letters.
