Bob and Jim Problem, part 2

And if no-one will take my previous suggestion, then AT THE VERY LEAST the Kings should record their own audio of Bob and Jim calling the finals and release it as a “radio” broadcast/podcast/download/CD later. They could raise a lot of money for charity, selling “Bob and Jim call the Finals” CDs.

And then we can make our own videos at home. With our fancy computers.

(If the Kings don’t do it, then one of us crazy bloggers needs to corner Bob and Jim and convince them to call the game in one of our living rooms. And we can tape that and distribute it to the faithful — for charity of course.)

I’m guessing what will really happen, though, is — if the Kings are so lucky — in lieu of Bob and Jim getting to call the game, Lombardi will just invite them down to the ice to actually lift the cup.

Yes, I know this is all dangerously premature, and we’re all superstitious. But we’re all thinking about it now, so we should be talking about it, too.

    Why can’t NBC use its SAP audio feed to let the local broadcasters do the games? Or its dot-two? There is always a back-up NBC Sports Channel for when games go to OT. Couldn’t they use that? Or why not put that idiot Emrick on NBC and the local announcers on NHL Network?

    There is really no excuse for the local announcers not being part of the broadcasts in some freaking way.

    Another solution would be to have Bob and Jim on the radio. Not to replace Nick and Daryl. But, have Nick do the play by play as usual, and Bob and Jim just become additional color along with Daryl Evans.  Or Nick and Bob could alternate periods. Something like that.

    I already will be crying if the Kings win the Stanley Cup. The sight of Bob lifting the cup just might turn me into a blubbering mess.
