My first stint as an announcer

On Saturday, I was able to fill in as the color commentator alongside play-by-play announcer Matthew Falkenbury.

When I first talked to Matt about the possibility of filling in, I was a bit nervous. To get more comfortable, I watched older broadcasts, particularly of the visiting team, the Buffalo Beauts. I reached out to Erik Wollschlager, the Beauts color commentator, for some players to watch, projected player pairings, and who would like start as goalie (he was right on the money).

Once game day arrived, I prepared like I would for any other big game or work presentation … I sang and danced all day! By showtime, I was ready to go.

Overall, I had a great time and learned a lot.  I certainly noted some areas for improvement, should I get the chance to announce another game.  Check out the broadcast below:
