The DVR League Pass Report #8

Published: December 16, 2008

My League Pass almost always shows the broadcast for the team opposite the Hornets, so I’m going to make note of some of my favorite bits from the announcers here. (Note: All my journals will be late as I’m almost always watching the game the following morning. I perform live comedy most nights in Austin, Tx – if you’re in the area, let me know)

This is way late and since the Raptors announcers were generally likeable I considered not even posting it – but I’m a slave to committment (right, ladies) and I couldn’t let H247 down.

The weirdest thing about the broadcast was the l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng intro montage that seemed to loop the same Chris Paul and Chris Bosh clips. I think I took a couple of baths in a couple of different tubs before the game actually started.

The Raptors announcers were really into the game. I didn’t catch their names and I suppose I could research this, but I wonder what their connection to the NBA is. Also I wonder what they were doing before they got a franchise. Also, what are they doing this weekend? Any ideas?

And I think of all the cities with at least 3 sports teams Toronto has the weakest connection between them. Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, Raptors?
