According to the Official New York Rangers’ Twitter, today is Sam Rosen‘s birthday. If that’s the case, then…
SAM “THE MAN” ROSEN!!
On the contrary side of the subject, Wikipedia lists Mr. Rosen’s birthday as April 4th, 1948 in Ulm, Germany. I don’t know who’s correct here, but I’ll assume that the Rangers would know his birthday better than Wiki would.
Mr. Rosen became the Rangers’ play-by-play in 1984 and has been doing a bang up job ever since. I wouldn’t have anyone else do play-calling for my favorite team other than Sam Rosen himself. And you have to admit, him and Joe Micheletti are an outstanding team.
Here’s to you, Sam. And here’s to many more birthdays in hopes that he continues being the voice of the New York Rangers for the next 26 years.
