Sports Docs That Rock in Philadelphia and beyond!

I am not talking about sports documentaries like this one that I narrated for the Buffalo Sabres.
Mike "Doc" Emrick makes the NHL playoffs come alive with his vocabulary on NBC:

Doc Rivers and "Dr. J" were in Philadelphia last night. The legendary Julius Erving is back with his former team as a strategic adviser. Meanwhile, the 76ers forced a game 7 Saturday night in the Eastern semifinal by beating Boston and coach Rivers, 82-75. Pick Shaq's former team, the Celtics, to win game 7. All that history in Boston!

Another famous athlete nicknamed Doc in Philadelphia sports is baseball's Roy Halladay. His bobblehead doll on the site was just pulled because it wasn't right. It had him as a lefty pitcher! Ouch!

Did you know earlier this month that Shaquille O'Neal received his doctoral degree in education from Barry University? He wrote his thesis on the value of humor in leadership. I feel Dr. Shaq made a wise decision today in turning down an opportunity to lead the way as general manager of the Orlando Magic. It means we get to enjoy him more as an analyst on TNT.

Heckling, Kicking, Hassli & Henley

Thursday nights are a favorite for me because I play basketball for a couple hours in my men's rec league!

I can watch a half of the Spurs/Clippers playoff battle tonight before I hit the road. I have been rooting for the San Antonio Spurs since day one of the NBA playoffs...

From a San Antonio Spurs fan's perspective, here is The Art of the Heckle. I don't do that. As a voiceover artist, I want to save my voice for better things - and not embarrass my wife or kids:)


Check out these highlights from last night in the world of sports:
                                 Kick 'em when they're up 
                                          Kick 'em when they're down 
                                             Kick 'em when they're up 
                                          Kick 'em when they're down 
Cue Don Henley with the Eagles for "Dirty Laundry"

My First Awards Show Voiceover!

The Sterling Business Awards take place tonight in Nanaimo, BC - where my wife was born. My contact on this project was SW Audio Visual. They have seven offices here in British Columbia.

I was flattered to receive this today from Vancouver Island Regional Manager, Christoph Mayer:
The client heard everything in the ballroom last night in our rehearsal, they loved your voice, will get you the gig again next year.

Here are a couple of segments from tonight.

For this one beware of yummy Nanaimo bars!

Don't worry...the typo on the graphic for nominee number two was fixed below for the final version...
