    press box announcer???????????

    Why does ISU even have this guy? He announced about 3% of the plays, never announced what the penalties were for. Horrible doesn't even begin to discribe the job he was doing. Next game, I am bringing my radio so I don't have to guess what is going on.

    It's the sound system not him. He does announce everything except penalties which the ref does.

    Fixed it. Yes, the ref signals every penalty, but I only heard him on a handful of calls. Either his wireless mike was getting flaky or he just didn't turn it on sometimes.

    The mic was bad. We didn't hear the calls on TV either. We pretty much had to read his lips at least 75% of the time
