    Doc Emrick to retire from NHL broadcast booth

    I’m not a hockey fan and about the only time I watch a game is during the playoffs. But when I do decide to watch, the primary reason is to hear Doc call a game. If there were a Mount Rushmore for sports announcers, he would be on it along side Vin Scully and Keith Jackson.

    View: https://twitter.com/gfstarr1/status/1309231795133722624 He is one of my favorite players and I hope the Sox sign him to a reasonable contract. I also must say they are a good looking couple and their daughter is very cute. Good luck to them whatever happens in the future and thanks!
