“I think they sort of asked me because I knew those people (in the control room) and it wouldn’t be like a stranger sitting in his seat,” he said.

“People were like coming out of the woodwork,” he said. “... I was really blown away.”

“Last year, anytime I was doing a game, I would say, ‘OK, and the homework tonight is everyone has to watch the game on NESN.”
