Randy's Thought of the Day - 2/28/2013
As you may know Drew Remenda and I called last nights Detroit - LA game on NBC Sports Network. It was the first time we'd ever worked on a non Sharks game together and I'll be honest with you for the first few minutes it was a little strange. First of all Drew worked inside the glass down at ice level and I sat alone up in the booth. Usually we're side by side. And then there's the whole "fair and balanced" thing. On a national broadcast such as last nights the commentary has to be down the middle. That's a code we don't have to adhere to as closely when we're calling a Sharks game like tonight when the Red Wings visit San Jose.
We received plenty of tweets and text messages before, during and after the game. Most were congratulatory, some were not "Hahn you're an idiot", but my favorite one came from a Sharks fan who tweeted "Watching you and Drew call a Kings-Wings game is like watching my wife on a date with another man."
It'll all be back to normal tonight at 7:00pm PDT on CSNCA.
