Ted Starkey of The Hockey Writers unearthed some vintage Home Team Sports footage that’s so incredible, it was fodder on NBC Sports Washington’s postgame show last night.
The clip features a recently-retired Craig Laughlin interviewing then-Capital Alan May in 1990. While May’s eyes seemed uncomfortable with the bright lights of cable TV, his fully-fluffed mullet was definitely ready for showtime.
The interview is awkward, but in a fun, not cringe way. You can definitely see the foundations of each analyst’s broadcasting philosophy taking shape.
