    Good thing we didn’t have a pool for the mystery fifth HNIC play-by-play slot. Don’t think anybody would have guessed Rick Ball. Don’t even know him well enough to have an opinion other than that he’s outlasted most TEAM 1040 radio shows, which probably says something.

      Also, assuming this means Ball and Weekes for Vancouver while Mark Lee and Reaugh bounce around the other western teams. Kinda surprising given that Lee’s a real CBC guy and Vancouver will probably get the national distribution most weeks, but we’ll see how it plays out.

      • Ryan says:

        …actually never mind, this leaves interpretation for Ball to be with Reaugh and Lee and Hughson to continue switching up Vancouver duties.

        And I’ll stop posting now.
