It's 9 AM in Calgary, Burke. Tie your damn tie.

I can guess what his response to you would be.

I could listen to Bryzgalov talk all day.

Bownsie on Primetime. Congratulations Joe!

The closest we ever got in the Pat Quinn Era. 2002, overtime, Game Six, Conference Final. Carolina would go on to win the Cup. Couldn't find the Joe call but here's CBC.

Edit: Got it!

... and we're stuck with Paul Romanuk calling the regional games while this legend is still on the radio. I swear if it wasn't a minute ahead I'd mute the TV audio and listen to the radio. Bownsie and Rick Jeannerette are regional homer legends.

No way to pause the TV feed for a minute and sync up the radio feed to it?

The slogan on his sweater (on side part) read "Toronto is Everything".   :) :)
(Expanded twitter photo & zoomed in). 

He was having a grand time there.

Oh Howard... Based on his unchanging look, I have a feeling he Photoshopped his head onto those pictures

For someone who's never been to the ACC, I enjoyed this a lot.

Very nice photos.  I always wondered what the view was like up there.  That picture of Bob McGill brings back some memories -- I and a family member were walking towards the then Maple Leaf Gardens and I recognized the fellow near me as Bob McGill.  Sure enough, got an autograph from him.  In so doing, this wide-eyed kid comes up to me, and asks me who it was, so I tell him and he goes "Bob McGill?! Wow!". Haha.

Joe Bowen is the play-by-play spokesman of this club. Always has been. His Stanley Cup call will be damn near epic.


Joe agrees! I got a retweet :D
