I think it takes time, as you said, to create that personality.

For me? Of course I love Blair, Karthik, and all the 'usuals'... but in the up and coming category...

"Angry Eric" Eckhardt - He's not angry at all... and he's new to FRC but not to FIRST. He has been emceeing (and double-duty announcing) for Clarkson's FLL and FTC Competitions for years!

Dan, from Montreal (I cannot for the life of me remember his last name). - He was full of energy and had to do the entire event bilingually! Oh, and he'd only attended one FRC event before. He and Blair share a pretty unique characteristic - acting. They're true performers, and it shows.

And, of course, to be that get-off-my-lawn-old-timey-FIRSTer ... Woodie. Of course.

Angry Eric is a great MC at the Ruckus and Rally -- that, and he has magical gnomes that live in his hair and magically fix your robot whenever he gets near it.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

An up and comer to keep your eye on: Katie Stevens. She worked the Hatboro Horsham district, The Rutgers District, the NYC regional, and she still has 3 more competitions this year alone.

She is going to be one of the greats, mark my words.

I would totally agree with this. Let's not forget the handstand introductions Dave does. And, Tom always keeps it exciting!

Also agree about the perfect storm being the BEST ever intro! How he ever remembered all of that amazed me! We are lucky to have the best in Michigan, though I have heard some other great ones at world's, I'm partial to my Michigan people.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees her doing well.

I don't think it's fair for me to add her to my list, since she is a friend and 1923 teammate- but it's always been a dream of hers to be up there on the field, and I'm so glad it's happening. If you don't know Katie - she has absolutely limitless energy. Can't wait to see her keep going with this.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Granted, completely biased answers, but Blair is the absolute best MC. I love getting his entheusiasm here in the Northwest, and the Motorcycle enterance at Oregon this year was truly epic.

Again, baised, but...Aurgh, I can't remember his full name...last name Lamb, always does Portland and Seattle. Can anyone remember? He does all of our play by plays, and he has the best announcer's voice ever!

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Here are a few ex-student MC's who I thought did a very good job at BMR over the past few years:
-Ryan Dognaux
-Collin Fultz
-Matt Fultz

I also think that Samir Shaikh has done a fantastic job at CAGE Match for the past two years.

That being said, I have to agree with others that from all the competitions I have attended, Dave Verbrugge was the best MC.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I just want to say, that after going to CTR this year, that Angry Eric is an awesome emcee. He really did a great job, and made the whole weekend fun to watch. Plus, he liked our capes....

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I think newcomer MC Mahoney (Kevin Mahoney, from Silicon Valley Regional) is getting pretty good. His knowledge of the teams helps make the matches interesting.

Plus, it's nice he's a 256 alum.

Agreed... BMR has been blessed with good MCs.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Dave Price. He's been doing it ever since I can remember in NH, (10+ years) and is incredibly good. He does FLL/FTC/FRC throughout NH (and I think Mass now as well...) and has a way of making every student feel valued and the star of the show. We were really lucky to have him come down to MC the Duel Down Under this year.
