Some scary news today:
Altitude Sports & Entertainment Network announced today that Avalanche play-by-play announcer Mike Haynes will undergo surgery on a Basilar Artery Aneurysm. He will miss the 2008 Stanley Cup playoffs.
I don't know anything about that condition, but a quick google search tells me that it's serious. All the best, Mike. I'm sure I speak for all Avs fans when I wish you a full recovery.
In far less important news, John Kelly will join Peter McNab in the broadcast booth during Haynes absence. Kudos to the St Louis Blues and FOX for allowing Kelly to fill in.
