Doc Emrick calling the hockey action

Post by guppy on Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:30 am

Doc calls an exciting hockey game here.  Rolling Eyes 
 

I digress...

I used to be really good at this game, having got one for Christmas when I was really young (mine didn't have the plastic bubble over the ice).  As you might guess, I trashed talked my opponents, at the same time I was scoring on them.  I considered it psychological warfare.  I got one guy so mad at me because I was abusing him both verbally and in the game itself that after I scored on him and raised my fists in triumph, he got up, threw the game --- MY game --- on the floor, and started stomping on it.  After he totally destroyed it, he threw it out the third floor dorm window.  My treasured table hockey game that I had for years was now trash.     Crying or Very sad 



But knowing that I just totally broke this big dude's spirit, I just walked away laughing with my hands in the air.  cheers  



Recently that story was fondly remembered and retold at a reunion 43 years later.


Maybe I should have not talked so much and shook hands like these guys in this video, and I'd still have that game.

Naaaah.

Hah...while watching the Stanley Cup finale, I saw this.  Too funny.
I think Doc is one of the best out there.  I love when he calls a game.

Man...what a sore loser your friend was...although maybe you should have curtailed your 'haha, I won and you lost' just a little bit!  lol

Did I say he was my "friend"?

ALL opponents must be crushed. 

After I defeated the big hulk I should have said,

"Is there no one else?"

Just like Brad.   Very Happy

Well, he was kinda my friend.  
But once competition starts, all friendship goes out the window, ya know.
