Broadcasters John Wiedeman and Troy Murray had mixed reactions upon seeing their likenesses on a bobblehead the Blackhawks will distribute to the first 10,000 fans who attend Sunday's game against the Capitals (TICKETS).
"They've made me better-looking than I actually am," said Wiedeman, who has been the Blackhawks radio play-by-play announcer since 2006. "When I first saw it, I looked at it and I thought, 'Wow, the guy on the left, me, looks like a gameshow host and the guy on the right looks like my old neighbor who had a real mean cat.'"
What does the "old neighbor" think of his depiction?
"It's hard to mess up a bald guy," said Murray, the former Blackhawks center who provides color commentary on the team's radio broadcasts alongside Wiedeman. "But it looks good. It kind of depicts what John and I are both all about. When you get a bobblehead, you've made it."
