Best Bob Errey Quote Of The Season So Far: Goligoski Is A Hummingbird

During Monday’s Pens/Senators game, Chris Neil lined up Alex Goligoski for a big hit while his head was turned, and at the last second, Goligoski pushed himself away from the boards and Neil collided with his own teammate. This greatly amused FSN’s Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey, and during the instant replay — emboldened by the Pens’ comfortable lead — Bob Errey delivered this awesomely insane about Golgoski’s move (transcribed verbatim):

“For Goligoski he saw it coming and he was able to WOOP! Slip out backwards. Like a hummingbird, don’t they take off backwards? Like a fly, when you try to catch a fly, Steigie? You gotta, you gotta reach behind that fly it goes backwards, like a crayfish. And that’s exactly what Goligoski did.”

Suck on that poetry, Lord Byron. You…hummingbird…crayfish.

I know a lot of Pens fans complain about the Penguin tv announcers (and basically all non-Dodger fans whine about their announcers all the time), but personally, I think Errey and Steigerwald do a pretty good job, and I’d rather have two homers slipping in the occasional awesomely insane quote than a completely professional, reliably sane announcing team. Or Joe Buck, ever.

    If you want homers, listen to a Tampa Bay game. I’ve never heard anyone make as many excuses for another human being in my life.

    I was also a big fan of the Berman “Woop!”

  2. Dan Hopper Says:

    Ever since I’ve had Center Ice I’ve argued that Errey and Steigerwald aren’t even close to being the biggest homer announcers in the league, and probably aren’t even in the top 50 percent — Tampa is absurd, so are Washington and Philly, so’s Chico Resch from the Devils, and so are a lot of the Canadian markets.

    The Islanders announcers, on the other hand, talk about Penguin players like they’re the firemen and astronauts they hope to someday grow up to be.
