We lost Bob Cole on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. In this Sports Lunatics Show episode, Shawn and Howie look back at Bob's life and career, from his trip as a 23-year-old who went to Toronto to meet Foster Hewitt unannounced to play his audition tape to working on Hockey Night in Canada to becoming their top play-by-play man. They also discuss many of the amazing things Cole did outside his work as the preeminent personality on Canadian hockey broadcasts for more than four decades. When you think about the principal men who have called games on Hockey Night in Canada - Foster Hewitt, Danny Gallivan, Bob Cole, Jim Hughson and Chris Cuthbert - you have a string of hockey royalty that runs almost a hundred years. There are plenty of audio highlights from his career.
