CBC Commentators Escape A Close Call With The Zamboni (Video)
Just inside the zamboni gates appears to be a common place for hockey commentators to conduct their pre-game introductions, but after a close call prior to Saturday night’s game between the San Jose Sharks and the Edmonton Oilers, they may want to consider relocating.
During the pregame summary prior to the second game of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada doubleheader, Kevin Weekes and Scott Oake were providing viewers with some insight when Oake noticed the zamboni was headed right at them. Luckily, he was able to dodge the giant, slow-moving vehicle and save his partner just in the nick of time. As for Weekes, he was able to carry on with his commentary without missing a beat. Now that is some solid reporting in the clutch.
