Best Wishes To "The Voice" of the V-Reds

By now you all know that Dave Ritchie of CHSR-FM and Daily Gleaner Sports fame is leaving Fredericton to pursue other interests.  On behalf of all the V-Reds hockey fans, we would like to wish him and his wife all the best, and thank him for his tireless hours calling V-Reds games as one half of "the Daves" on CHSR all these years.  We probably don't know how much effort it took on his part to plan and travel to all those games to keep us up to date.

Best of luck Dave!  Something tells us we haven't heard David Ritchie's "heee scooorrrrres" call for the last time yet...

thanks so much Ken for the kind words and your wonderful support. Loved doing UNB hockey with Dave Kilfoil (Killer) and definitely hope to be invited back to help with the nationals coverage again this year. Really want to thank all the listeners for simply tuning in and for the many people who have extended best wishes. I'm gonna miss watching the AUS more than you can ever imagine and all those great people around the circuit. But this is definitely not the end, just a break in the action. A radio timeout, if you will...good luck this season...

Thank you for your valuable contributions over the years, Dave. Part of what has always made UNB Hockey so unique.

Call was always: THEY SCOOOORE!
A Friend tells an amusing story of how his infant daughter was fussing for a while. He had her just about back to sleep when Dave bellowed THEY SCOOORE! Startled the little one awake and she cried for another hour.

interesting comment anoy june 25 did they piss you somehow or are you just being an a--h--- these guys kept it honest you hear all these homers and it was refreshing when these guys would just call the game without all the bias
