Thornton vs. Cote: “It’s Just Rock ’em sock ’em Robots…”

Wait for the hail pulling. (Seriously.) Or wait for 1:12, when the close-up reverse angle shows 12 punches exchanged in six seconds. Or when the announcer says, “as a hockey fan, Jack, you just sit back and enjoy that.”

You won’t hear that in Canada because the PTA will have your nads removed by committee. That was Andy Brickley on Jack Edwards’ call of the year, “it’s just rock ’em sock ’em robots out there.”

Well, it’s probably not fair to other announcers because their calls come gift wrapped with Masshole accents.  But it’s also because Edwards and Brickley are the best American hockey broadcasters this side of Jeanneret.
