Playoff hockey at its finest -- Bruins scored late in the third to force OT and then score in the opening minutes of sudden death to knot up their series with the Habs. Here's four-sport broadcasting star Kenny Albert with the call. With the call!
After you listen, tune into TNT and hear his daddy call the final quarter of the Heat/Sixers game.
Herbstreit is very bias towards Ohio State. I think he is a bit jealous of how huge Ohio State is now, and how they were kind of average in his days as a Buckeye. I think him getting into a battle with a 20 year old college qb is rediculous! Most analyst have no problem showing their affection for their alma mater i.e. Mark May at Pitt, or Lou Holtz with Norte Dame or S. Carolina, and no one holds that against them. And I highly doubt it was that bad with the fans against Herbie. He lived out in the very rich suburbs were most people were too snooty to even be passionate about sports! He may have recieved a few letters from stupid fans but that comes with the job and spotlight...
This is by far the best piece I've read on the whole Herbstreit situation. Reminds me almost of "Remember the Titans" when someone throws a brick through Coach Boone's window.
Here's my take on Buckeye fan going a little too far.
Would also be interested in exchanging blogrolls. Let me know.
