TG Leaving the Record

Well if I'm listening to a color commentator, I would like that he at least has a pleasing voice. That's actually a job requirement. Chico was a bit goofy but at least he was fun/interesting to listen to and didn't sound like he was gargling with gravel. And he was a bigtime homer too which was nice.

That said he's probably not going anywhere and once the Devils start winning more regularly we'll be less concerned with these issues as a whole.

I actually find Dano's honesty refreshing.  I didn't mind Chico at all, basically like you said I thought he was goofy but still easy to listen to and a nice guy in general, but he was definitely a homer and I have found Dano's comments and honesty about the team when they aren't playing well to be what people need to hear.  You can tell he is a lot closer to the team being that he's only a decade or so removed from his playing days and still cares and knows that the team can and should do better when they're not playing well.

Andrew Gross is still filling in for TG for the time being, so I guess they're taking their time hiring someone...  hopefully it's worth the wait.

Looks like this guy is taking over for Chere (though his twitter account bio hasn’t yet been updated):

So it's official - Andrew Gross (ex-NYR guy for the Record) is taking TG's spot.  I figured it was a possibility since he's been filling in for TG all summer...  

I interrupt my vacation with this news - I have officially been re-assigned by The Record and will be covering the Devils.
