'Tis The Season

Occasionally, a play-by-play guy will take it upon himself to add some fun to a game. He might throw a pop culture reference into games, add his own unique twist on a goal call, or simply have some fun while the play goes on below him. There have been lots of occasions where the guys calling the action have had a little fun, but I'm not sure if we've ever seen a Christmas carol sung while a fight has broken out. Until tonight, that is, when Jack Edwards of NESN did so.

As he prepares to conduct the choir in the above image, a fight broke out between Boston's Tyler Randell and St. Louis' Ryan Reaves. While the fight itself wasn't anything to write home about, it was the unique call made by Edwards that caught the attention of the hockey world.

'Tis the season, I guess? All in all, not a bad rendition of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". Who would have the thought one would hear a Christmas carol midway through a hockey game?

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
