“Drriiiiive! Waffleboarded into the corner!”
Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t help but notice Mike “Doc” Emrick’s unique style of calling a hockey game. Widely regarded as the premier hockey play-by-play announcer in the game today, Doc brings colorful expressions, an anthology of stories, and a diverse, descriptive vocabulary to each game.
It’s this extensive vocabulary that lets us play along at home.
PuckPress has compiled our favorite “Doc-isms” into Doc Emrick Bingo. Print out your copies and play along at home. Pick your own prizes, to be awarded at your discretion.
Oh, and if Pierre McGuire gets hit in the head with anything, everyone wins.
