Even Track Announcers Get Typecast

Circling in and out of consciousness and unconsciousness; reality and fantasy; I somehow managed to stumble across one of my favorite time wasting (yet highly informative) websites:

To explain how my brain got me exactly where I am at this point is an exercise in futility. There is no way (~150-1) I could plot and pinpoint each thought that surfaced (only to quickly fade into a fresher version) over the past 10 minutes leading me stumble upon the fact that my new favorite announcer, Trevor Denman, has been unceremoniously typecast as what else. You guessed it.... a track announcer. BUT WAIT!!! Before you take my word for it, here are a few quick trivia questions to test your TV/TD knowledge:

Without going over (Price is right rules as always), how many films has TD been credited with? (If you get within two, well, good for you. Nice work)

Name ONE of two TV shows that TD has made an "appearance" on? (c'mon, it's easy with the hint) 1 million bonus points if you honestly guess both-if you DO get both, then I am thinking you need to get out a tad bit more.

"And away they go...."

Editor's Note: Through more mindless IMDB-ing, I just found out that Jay Cronely WROTE:
1) Quick Change-An amazingly funny, highly UNDERATED classic with Bill Murray, Geena Davis, Randy Quaid, et. al. One of my all-time favs
2) Funny Farm- Does this movie even need an explanation, much less my worthless endorsement?
3) Let It Ride- see #2 above

I don't get it. How can someone as righteous as yourself hate the Rangers?? Please don't tell me that you're an I-Isle-Islan...... I can't even say it.

Oh. you mean the Team That Ruined Hockey. Well, better than the Fishsticks, anyway. At least I'l be rooting for the Devs tonight against the Flyers.

I prefer "Transcended" thank you very much.

St. Louis Blues, thank you very much.

Transcended, lol. Man, you're too cool to root for anyone but the Rangers. I'm surprised at you!

Two of my most vivid sports fan memories are:

1)"Matteau!! Matteau!! Matteau!!"--Oy.

2) NBC breaking away from Rockets/Knicks for OJ.

Watching that entire Devs-Rangers series was one of the toughest things I've ever had to watch. Up and down the ice they would go. Posts, crossbars, breakaways. Any clearing of the blue line was a sigh of releief. Any lead was held with heavy trepidation.

That was an awesome series.

Best game ever. Matteau Matteau Mattaeu!!!
