Announcing…new venue…a little nervous. #67
The other day I was asked to announce some games at the 1A Division I State Basketball tournament held at White Auditorium. I immediately said yes, but then I realized that it would be a whole different ball game (pun somewhat intended) to announce down at the auditorium. When I first started I was definitely a little nervous – not sure what to expect with their PA system and going at it somewhat alone up on top of the risers on the sideline. However, after announcing the starting line-ups it felt like any other game I’ve announced in the last 7 or 8 years I’ve been announcing. It was also fun to be part of some memories that these athletes will have from the state tournament for the rest of their lives.
