Kennny Albert calls Eagles tie, Rangers shootout
While waiting to speak to Mike Bair (see post below), I ran into all sorts of interesting people in the Garden press room, including my venerable predecessor on the Newsday sports media beat, Steve Zipay, as well as loyal WatchDog reader Kenny Albert.
Mr. Albert reported that his voice was a bit strained, no surprise after a Sunday and Monday during which he became the first play-by-play man in history to call a full five periods of an NFL game (he worked the Eagles-Bengals tie) and an NHL overtime and shootout.
Remember, friends: The last time there was a tie in the NFL, there were no NHL shootouts. These are the kinds of things you can learn nowhere other than here.
(By the way, Kenny is calling each of the next two Giants games, vs. Arizona and Washington.)
