    Default Playoffs 2017 Mike Emrick games

    Was looking for help on which games Doc Emrick will be calling each round. Probably the only games I'll watch unless it's San Jose and Anaheim elimination games


    Edit: round 1 CBJ-PITT

    If you don't care much for your liver make sure to play the Doc Emrick Drinking Game. You'll need to whittle down the Emrickisms to a select few or the ambulance will pay a visit. "Knifed down" should be good for several shots alone.

    The Emrick-called games are the ones I will choose to avoid as often as possible.

    That voice is like nails on a chalk board to me. And his literary "license" should have been revoked years ago.

    Not to pile on, but I will. I like him as a person but not as an announcer. His idiosyncratic calls and historical references that come from nowhere and go nowhere grate on my nerves. Almost as annoying is Eddie and Pierre's hysterical laughter anytime Doc makes a silly joke or pun. Couple that all with the fact that they usually have that team broadcasting the slobber-fest and fawning of any Pittsburgh or Chicago game (with Chicago's most annoying ever goal song) and I just can't.

    Can't please everyone, you know.

    On a similar note, in a seldom-ever-seen marital victory for the husband, my wife allowed me to watch the Ducks game last night, as long as it was on mute.

    She's a huge hockey and Kings fan, it's just been a long-standing rule that she doesn't tolerate diarrhea on the TV.
    I was happy to oblige the lack of Hazey's voice.

    NBCSN has had the game on both times and no Hazy Fishy.

    Still diarrhea, just no flatulence.


    Good to know for the future, though. Thanks.

    Few Docisms should include:

    How the puck "rattles around"
    Gives the time in quarters - "Seven and three-quarters remaining in regulation time..."
    "Ladle" any puck...
