We've Said This Before: Doc Emrick is the Best

Deadspin picked up this story from Richard Dietsch in Sports Illustrated.  I love the part about the grace of the great Ernie Harwell.

We've sung Mike Emrick's praise around these parts for a long time.  He's the best American voice of hockey, and he's arguably the best ever (yes, I know my friends in Canada and those who love Dan Kelly are cringing).

Let's see Doc in a moment of silliness, from the Easter Epic of 1987.  That's the late Tom Mees introducing them.

It's Doc's play-by-play that we love him for, and we need some of that. He was beyond brilliant the other night (when is he not?) but this was among some of his finest work - Game 7 from 2009, when the Penguins won Lord Stanley's Cup.
