Post the best one liners, clips, flubs,the highs/lows of Donny Taylor. Either from his Sports Page days to today's SPAC hosting the Canucks pre-post games...

"Saved by his left Khabby....or was it his right?"

"Goal scored wearing #9, for you trivia fans...donned by the late 'Gary Leeman...' "

Almost everything he says when he commentated in the NHL games in the early 2000's. I can't think of any specific examples, but he's so much better than the commentators of the last few years.

Agreed NHL 2002 (had Iginla on the cover) was freaking epic because of him

I've watched Taylor since his very early Sports Page days. Even used to go to his brothers club...Gary Taylor's Rock Room...for those of you who've been around a while like me.
  • Reminiscent of a young (insert name) !!
  • Joffrey Lupul, the palindromeian one.
  • Goal scored by Andrew Brunette, and as always the assists go to Blonde and Redhead.
  • Michael Ryder, his friends call him 'CC'.
  • Clarke MacArthur parks one.
  • ...and it WAS... a GORGEOUS... MOVE! and YES!...in his best Marv Albert voice.
  • The singing of Frank Catalanatto's name to the tune of "Shave and a Haircut".
  • Jason Bartlett pears one...or Ryan Braun Lloyds one to right", a reference to Seinfeld character Lloyd Braun.
  • When describing a goal by a lesser known player...The dreaded [Obscure Player] - [Obscure Player] combination.
  • Describing a putt that goes in as "he scores"
  • Imitation of former Maple Leaf Gardens P.A. Announcer Paul Morris when recapping Toronto Maple Leafs hockey games... "goal scored by number 81 Phil Kessel, assisted by Dick Duff and Darryl Sittler".
There so many more I can't think of them now. He's always been my favourite sports personality locally.

When referring to Ryan Callahan of the New York Rangers he sometimes says, "They call him Corey."

That one is my favourite because he's referring to my buddy who is behind the camera :P

Come to think of it, that shows how even more awesomer Taylor is to say an inside shout out like that on air. Love the guy, very happy to grow up listening to him.

OP: I think he finishes it with "or was it his right bulin?" Either way, great thread :towel:

His Frank Drebbin calls are legendary:







Not often DT gets mad on air but he almost did there. His spat with Pratt over poker was great too!

Travis Moen...faucet's one in!

If the picture quality on the highlights are bad or the arena is dark. "We'd like to thank our special agent who smuggled the footage on microfilm!"

Totally Classic.
NHL 2002 was awesome with him. Hughson "Don, stop hiding under the table!"

Hughson "Unfortunately Don got stuck in traffic, and he's calling on his cell phone"
Don: "I'd like to thank my cell phone provider for the unlimited evenings and weekends plan...."

Don "Right Jimbo Hughson?"
