"That'll Teach You To Run Ken Carroll!"

Friday, January 09, 2009

Hockey fight videos are a little played out these days, but when you combine a huge minor league brawl combined with an over-the-top announcing blow by blow, you're getting a spot on AA. Here is the clip of Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs and Corpus Christi IceRays going at it with Mudbugs announcer, Travis Huntington on the call. Via Puck Daddy....



Not as good as Jack Edwards, but it will do.

BTW, in the rematch, the Bugs won 4-1, but right out the chute just two seconds in they dropped the gloves.

"That'll Teach You to Run Ken Carroll!" is destined to become part of pop culture. Ladies and gents, we have a replacement for "Boom Goes the Dynamite". And LOL Bazooka--I noticed that too.

All in all that was a very good job by Huntington calling the action. There was a lot going on there. That quote is great, but no where close to being Jack Edwards-esque.

I LOLed at "ME-lay" too.

Terrible camera work. You always concentrate on the current fights. How much action was missed because two goalies went dancing?

Actually then that would be terrible directing.

Yeah that would the directors fault. Also, I wouldn't blame them for focusing on the goalies... how often do goalies pair-off and fight?

I couldn't believe the refs felt it took two of them to break up the goalies.

Plus, I loved:

"We've got a yard sale!!"

just watched both clips (edwards and the mudbugs) I hate everything boston but I gotta hand it to edwards. Good call... Altho where is Rick Jeanneret the sabres announcer? He's great @ calling fights imo even thought I haven't heard him call one in a while.
