Only missing one season since the 1971-'72 season Rick has been making exciting plays more entertaining with his great calls. Here's a Sports Center Top 10 list of his best calls. I will list a few of my favorites that weren't in this video below.
Now for a couple of my favorites:
- "There have been more cheap shots in this game than in a Mexican cantina during happy hour!"
- "Top shelf where Mama hides the cookies!" (After goals that hit the top of the net)
I hope that you get the chance someday to listen to a whole game that Rick calls, preferably a playoff game. GO SABRES!!!
