Does anyone remember what happened to that previous NESN announcer, the guy who did SportDesk and called some games before Don Orsillo came aboard? You know, the guy who looked like a mix between Orsillo and an oompa-loompa? (Not really, but once I typed "oompa-loompa" I couldn't get myself to delete it.) I can't for the life of me remember his name.
Speaking of which, what of the guy before him, Remy's old broadcast partner? I can't remember his name either (King?) but I seem to remember he was pretty good. I think he left after (or during) the 2000 season, to call games for the Minnesota Wild, which was just starting that year. Man, talk about crappy career choices. Since then NESN has become part of standard cable in most of New England, Orsillo is a celebrity, and the Red Sox are World Champions. (How's life over at the NHL?)
