Doc Emrick is one of our favorites here at AA, and his return to our collective consciousness is perhaps the best part about the end of the NHL Lockout. During the lockout, Rock Center with Brian Williams sent Emrick to Troy, Michigan to give play by play of a game, but not just any game: a 12 and under girls game between the St Clair Shores Saintes and the Troy Lady Sting.

If you were one of those girls, could you imagine the thrill of having a broadcasting legend like Emrick chatting with you before the game, and then calling your game? Imagine if Vin Scully provided play by play for your Little League game, or if Al Michaels did commentary on your peewee football game. It would be something you'd remember for the rest of your life, and it's really cool that Emrick took time out of his schedule to do this.
