Oh, What a Night!

Unfortunately, Wings fans did not hear that song, but what a night it was at the big 1-0.

"Oh, What a Night! "  I never liked that song, but I loved that they played it at the Joe after the Wings won their last two Cups.  Back in my DJ days I was working at Sammy's when they clinched on a Friday in 1998 and played it myself.  But as we all know, the song never played last night-- or should I say this morning.    Where to start... how about with the fact that because of the game we didn't go on and do the news until late.  I think we finished at 1:23 a.m..  Leading up to it of course, we're living and dying with every second of the game.  By the time I got on set, I was wrecked.  It was so late, Darrin Rockcole was in to start preparing for the morning show before we were off the air.

In a previous post I said Ben Holden would be working Game 5 for ESPN's overseas broadcast.  He reports things went fantastic.  The silver lining of a Game 7 is Benno gets to work one more game.  I don't know if that will happen but I do know there's a whole station pulling for him.

Bring on Wednesday.  Hopefully we'll be singing "The Four Seasons" then.
