Doc Emrick and David Frei: Scoring the Best, No Bones About It


The story begins at a bar in Philadelphia, as I explain. But LISTEN as I torture legendary hockey announcer Doc Emrick and legendary dog show announcer David Frei.

with dog show announcer David Frei

Frei wanted to meet Doc, so I make that happen. Then, hear what happens, as I ask each to “audition” for the other person’s job.

Incidentally, Frei is being inducted into the Dog Writer’s Association of America Hall of Fame in February!

I also talk hockey as I fill in for Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder on WGN Radio, and begin by asking about the Chicago Blackhawks. Now, the question is, “Will they even make the playoffs?”

And, look at the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Why are they doing so well? In part, Doc credits the way in which the NHL set them up for success.

We also discuss the New Year’s Day NHL Classic, to be played in New York (against the Sabres). Doc says it’s not the cold or even snow that he’s worried about. It’s the sun, and he explains why.
