Finnish hockey league broadcaster goes berserk after goalie scores goal

New, comment

"KAAPO! KAAPO! KAAPO!"

Seeing a goalie score a goal is rare, no matter what level of hockey you're watching. So when it does, it must be a special moment for the guy in the mask. As a goalie, it has to be pretty hard to imagine that moment being upstaged by the guy calling play-by-play.

But that's exactly what happened for Kaapo Kahkonen on Saturday. Kahkonen, a goalie for second-tier Finnish team TUTO, attempted to ice a game against KooKoo (we're not making these names up) by scoring on an empty net.

He did it, which was awesome! But less awesome than the play-by-play guy's reaction.

Whether the broadcaster was being attacked by bees while making that call is unconfirmed.
