The Intensity Picks Up

from The Brown Daily Herald,

The intensity in the arenas of established hockey teams during the postseason cannot even be compared to the NBA - and even my beloved MLB - whose fan base has become frustratingly commercialized, superficial and corporate over the past few seasons….
Analysts have suggested that HDTV will make hockey a more appealing television product. I concur fully. The resulting HD picture is sharper than Jay Mariotti’s eyebrows, and there’s no longer a “need” for Fox’s FoxTrax of the mid-1990s. Although, I do admit that I sometimes get nostalgic for Kevin Dineen slapping around the glow-puck in a Hartford Whalers sweater.
Hockey is also blessed to have an incredibly talented corps of announcers that rival the likes of baseball’s Kalas, Scully and Gary Cohen. In fact, Doc Emrick is the best play-by-play man in all of sports. It is unreal how he can verbalize so much information so quickly, accurately and clearly and still exude such energy and passion for the game.
