Doc Emrick to Narrate BU-BC Documentary
July 13, 2009 1 Comment
Lots of stuff from the NBC crew today. This comes from the USCHO site, and their senior writer Jim Connelly:
One of college hockey’s greatest rivalries will have one of the game’s best-known voices telling its story when Rival Films releases “The Battle of Comm Ave — Boston University vs. Boston College” this fall.
Mike “Doc” Emrick, the well-known voice for NBC and Versus broadcasts of NHL action, will provide the narration for this one-of-a-kind documentary, it was announced on Monday. Emrick’s voice has become synonymous with hockey coverage throughout the U.S. and Canada and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.
The film will feature interviews with nearly 50 players, coaches and observers of what Sports Illustrated once called the greatest rivalry in the country. Shot in High Definition, it will combine an array of archival footage, rare photos, radio calls and many untold stories.
This will be a great treat for college hockey fans and puckheads alike when it is released on DVD just in time for Christmas in November. NESN will premiere it on the TV side, but hey VERSUS, there’s always national cable rights. Right?
