Hey look who’s up for the official Toronto Maple Leafs P.A. announcer gig ? I know, eh ? Wish me luck. I’ve been told they’re down to a final few. But do I want this gig ? Do I want to sit for several hrs. on a Tuesday night watching the Leafs and the Minnesota Wild ? Plus, the job is not as glamourous as you might think . How do I know ? I’ve seen this movie before . You see in 1994, I tapped as the official team P.A. announcer for the Toronto Raptors.. Then club owner John Bitove was a terrific guy and we hit it off instantly. One night he took me out for drinks and offered me the job as the voice of the team as official public address announcer. Wow, this was perfect, I thought. I could make a hell of a lot of money, arrange to host live events, make personal appearances on behalf of the team etc. It would be a windfall. All we had to do was come up with a dollar figure.
