Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I liked when Paul Copioli came from Texas and did some MC-ing at Troy last year. On top of that, he was the best Lego League MC ever! (Thunderquest competitor 2002-2005).

Karthik is a close second for his flying jump-kicks to introduce teams.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

The melding of Karthik's MCing and Jondarr's booming voice is an epic combination of epic epicness that is, to be frank, epically epic.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I'm a northeast gal, so my vote's got to go for Jack Kentfield (aka Jack in the Hat) and Andy Grady. Both knowledgeable, fun and high energy.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I have to agree with dsmoker....Jack in the Hat Kentfield is right up there with the best of them. He is a BIG presence on the field, whatever field that is, FLL, FTC or FRC. The powers that be need to get him back on an FRC field.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I was reading this and was starting to wonder when any of our Northeast guys were going to be mentioned!

Jack Kentfield is by far my favorite MC. Maybe it's cause he does our off-season, but he's just like a local legend up here, and the show and enthusiasm he has, it's second to none. We're gonna miss you at CT Jack!

Also gotta throw my support behind Andy Grady as well. He is both a fantastic MC and Game Announcer, and is one of the few people I've seen who can really do a great job at both roles.

If you want to find the best MC, just look toward Einstein.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Depends. Emceeing the finals and the quals are two different beasts.

For the Quals: Blair. He has a talent in making intros interesting when, by all rights, they ought not be. I saw him bring a two year old out to help with the introductions once. It should not have worked, but it did.

For the Finals: Dave Verbrugge. The dude has the memory of an elephant. If they let him actually just run Einstein like it was a competition, instead of a pageant, it'd blow your mind.

For Awards: Blair. Pleasing Baritone.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Karthik Hands down. He started introducing us as Seven Seven Who?! So thats part of it. But he is amazing at introducing teams When we reach Eliminations. With his giant fist punching kick thingy, telling the story behind a team, and very loud and encouraging voice! Nothing can beet it.

Like he does at the Michigan State Championship event? Anyone who wants to see Dave at his finest should come to MSC! The stories that he tells from past years, and the history of the accomplishments of the teams that are there give goosebumps to the entire crowd. I've never seen a massive crowd of high school students go as silent and pay as close attention as when Dave Verbrugge is out there for Opening Ceremonies. It is pretty much my favorite part of the State Champs.

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

Dave Verbrugge is by far the best MC. There's a reason why he ALWAYS does the MSC and Einstein.

As far as play by play, Tom Nader is the best. Hands down. I love that man!

Re: pic: Best Emcee Ever?

I'm sure everyone thinks their MC is the best, so I have to speak up for the team of Dan Richardson and George Wallace. They MC the Orlando Regional and will be working the new South Florida Regional as well.

They both started in FIRST in high school and have been involved either as a student or mentor for most of Florida's 10 years as a regional.

Dan can spout the history of just about any Florida team and knows all the connections between teams. It is so much fun listening to him tell the stories of all the teams during eliminations.
