Return Of Pat Foley

Let’s be honest here, Pat Foley is getting close to the Harry Caray stage of his career when he gets stuck in some of his sayings and is looking to make each broadcast a chuckle fest.

The thing about Foley is he was the voice that we got to listen to on the radio every night when home games weren’t televised. If you grew up during the early 80s, his call of Murray Bannerman with the save is something you will never forget. Foley, though, was displaced from his  title of Chicago Blackhawks play-by-play man in 2006, which in the heart of the Chicago Blackhawks dark ages was a hard pill to swallow.

He returned for the beginning of the 2008-2009 season and has been able to be a part of three Stanley Cup Championship teams, which really is hard to imagine after going 49 years without a Cup and Foley broadcasting games of some of the teams all-time stars like Denis Savard and Steve Larmer.

Foley can lose it on some nights, but I’m thankful he’s still the voice of the team.
