On The Road To Recovery Video produced by Toronto Rock

Sports play by play is reality radio on steroids.  This encompasses everything that makes a great radio announcer who has no script. Play by play announcers  speak at the speed of a puck hit by a slap shot, a baseball hit by a slugger or a football or soccer ball kicked into a net.

You gotta be an adrenaline junky who loves traveling with a pack of jocks on a bus from one small town to the next…wherever hockey, baseball, football, soccer or lacrosse is played in Canada and the United States.

The play by play announcer shares the dream of the players who hope one day to be in the big leagues. The goal is as elusive for the play by play announcer as it is  for the players on the field or skating across the ice.
