The voice track to many of Canada’s best moments on the ice has been provided by Bob Cole.
“They’re Goin’ Home”….”Oh Baby”….”Everything Is Happening.”
2018 will mark the end of fifty years of priceless descriptions of hockey’s biggest moments.
The 85-year-old product from Newfoundland will call 10 games this season, then end a storied career.
An avid pilot and a championship curler in his day, Cole brought Canadians together on Saturday night for many years.
Not only is Cole a legend with fans, but with players whose names he called. From Howe to McDavid, and stars in between, Cole described greatness like no other … Islander dominance, Oiler dynasties, Scotty Bowman’s brilliance and many more moments were brought to you by Bob Cole.
Good on the decision makers at Sportsnet to allow a legend like Cole to have a heroes send off.
