Grant will continue to be an up and comer so long as he doesn't manage to kill himself diving off of the field at MARC.
That dude is nuts!

I gotta go with George on this one. Chiniqua's energy level is unprecedented, not to mention the fact that she's awesome.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

+1 for Paul Copioli. The man is a walking FRC match history machine. At IRI for the eliminations he gives you chapter and verse of who's played who in prior years and the match outcomes. And with all of the top teams that makes the trip to IRI there is a lot of interesting history. A match is no longer two dozen kids and a few robots, it's a full fledged "Hatfields, Snoopy and the Jets vs. McCoys, Red Barron and the Sharks" with Robots!

OTOH, MAR has got some new MC's doing their matches, I'm sure we will be hearing about them in the near future.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Wow. Nobody has mentioned Dave Price as an MC? I haven't really seen many of the people previously mentioned so I cannot compare them. I really appreciate Dave's humor without silly gimmicks. He seems to have a comment for each team and pays attention to what they have accomplished so far at the regional and in the past.

I think Barry Bohnsack is the best Emcee for FRC and FTC. He makes it very very amusing! Always positive

I wouldn't be disappointed by this, statistically it should be expected. FIRST sends their best and most experienced Emcee's and Game Announcers to rookie regionals, so there is a much higher percentage of audiences that get to see Blair and Mark in Action, which is a good thing!

Blair is awesome. My first year emceeing was in 2007, and I did Florida as well as Kansas City for its rookie regional year. I was trained by blair, and that regional happened to land on St. Patrick's Day, and he emceed the entire day dressed as a leprechaun.

Of all emcee's I've worked with, no one is more enjoyable than Dan. His history lessons of the teams in the Florida finals are fantastic, and his high energy introductions are crowd pleasers, but nothing beats his sense of humor.
+1 for "Rand Dichardson"


I have a nomination for who we all really want as an Emcee... Morgan Freeman. He already attends the Championship event. Let him emcee just one match, it will be legendary, make it happen.

YES. We need to have Morgan Freeman MC! At EINSTEIN!

It would more than make up for last year's Einstein game (not a single note was played that match. )

Seconded - he did an amazing job, best I've seen in 4+ years in FIRST. The man was moving nonstop during every match break, field reset, and communications delay. His seamlessly transition between French and English was something to behold and was an immeasurable help to the non-francophones in the audience.
