Last night as I was watching the Pistons game, I was fully impressed in the introductions of the players and the starting line ups. There was video, fire, music, enthusiastic announcer, flashing lights, spotlights, nicknames, and all the other elements to get the fans excited about the game. Heck, I was 130 miles away, and I was fired up for the game.
Stevie Wonder playing the National Anthem on a harmonic with a string sextet, National Guard presenting the flag, and the real basketball terminology such as the announcer saying “here comes the BALLA’S from the MOTOR CITY, THE DE…….TORIT PISTONS” added frosting to event.
What were some of the best player introduction in a sporting event that you have witnessed, in person or on TV?
