I almost don't know what to say to this... The Penguins have decided to fire their TV play-by-play announcer, who is a huge Legend in Pittsburgh. As the article mentions, many people would tune into the games to hear him broadcast, whether the team was playing well or not. His sayings were a big part of my memories growing up watching the Pens. I find this news very disturbing...
Here's to you, Mike!
"Scratch my back with a hacksaw."
"Buy Sam a drink and get his dog one, too."
"He beat him like a rented mule."
"Elvis has just left the building."
"Lord Stanley, Lord Stanley give me the brandy."
