Ted Darling

With all the plaudits and concerns about Sabres‘ announcer Rick Jeanneret continuing his career, it’s easy to forget that it wasn’t until the 9os that he was the main guy. He toiled mostly on CJRN Radio and took the Sabres’s main mike when Ted Darling called the games on television. Now I love RJ today, but with all the talk about about appreciating history of the team, I thought back to Darling, and the natural way that he knew that the puck went over the glass “went to a young fan from St. Catharines“. When the Sabres used to play Sunday night games, his call of the third period was often the last voice I heard coming from my clock radio.

RJ is a treasure, but Ted was pretty good too.
