On Monday, longtime NBC sportscaster Doc Emrick announced his retirement after being the national broadcaster for nine of his 47-year broadcasting career. His last call was the Tampa Bay Lightning’s championship night, which was unforgettable to say the least. Let’s relive that memory as a thank you for an amazing career.
An election during a pandemic in a city still celebrating a Stanley Cup win. It was peak 2020 at Amalie Arena on Monday as mask-clad voters flocked to the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning for the start of early voting. This is the first time Amalie Arena in Tampa has been used as an early voting site, and voters who showed up were treated to more than just a sense of accomplishing a civic duty — or a sticker.
What does this mean? Largely nothing. All of these players still have their contracts under team control, they just can’t accept the initial offer the Lightning put on the table.
