Knowledge About Sports Games

1. Establishment of sports games

In March 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, who later became the first prime minister of India, held the Asian Relations Conference in New Delhia meeting with a prospect to bring the possibility of Asian Games under the attention of participating countries. Before the conference, Guru Dutt Sondhi, who was the member of the International Olympic Committee for India, encouraged Yadavindra Singh, Maharaja of Patiala and the then-president of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), to communicate with meeting attendees to establish the Asian Games Federation. The proposal was not acknowledged by some representatives and the rest, who approved, refused to make any commitment.

In July 1947, the IOA, which initially was advocating the organisation of Games, retracted its patronage for unknown reasons. Sondhi found an alternative; rather than organising a multi-sport event, for which he needed an approval of the IOA, he opted for a single event championship titled the Asian Athletic Championshipsa track and field event. Sondhi, who was also the president of the Amateur Athletic Federation of India (AAFI) (now Athletics Federation of India), received the consent of federation in February 1948. Yadavindra, on the request of Sondhi, became the president of the organising committee for the Championship, and Sondhi took the position of chairman. In early July, formal invitations were sent to various Asian countries, backed by the letter from the AAFI. But the response was not positive as there was a scheduling conflict with the 1948 Summer Olympics, which were scheduled from 29 July.

Meeting in LondonDuring the 1948 Olympic Games, Sondhi held a meeting on 8 August 1948, at Mount Royal Hotel in London. Invitations were sent to all the Asian National Olympic Committees present in London at that time. Chief Managers of Korea, China, Philippines, Singapore, Burma, Ceylon, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria were called for the meeting, but only representatives from Burma, Ceylon, China, India, Philippines, and Korea attended. Sondhi made two proposals: first, to organise an Asian Athletic Championship in February 1949 in New Delhi, and second, to establish the Asian Games Federation, based on the IOC model. Founder of the Philippine Amateur Athletic Federation and first Filipino member of the International Olympic Committee Jorge B. Vargas stoutly backed the second proposal, and the first proposal was accepted by the attendees with an amendment. For the further development of the federation, a decision was made to conduct a meeting during the Championship in New Delhi in February 1949, and a sub-committee, consisting representatives from four nations, was appointed to draft the constitution and ordinances of the federation.

2. Origin of sports games

The first Intercalated Games had been scheduled by the IOC in 1901 as part of a new schedule, where every four years, in between the internationally organised games, there would be intermediate games held in Athens. This was a compromise: After the successful games of Athens 1896 the Greeks suggested they could organize the games every four years. Since they had the venues, and had proven to be able to hold well-organised games, they received quite a bit of support. However, Pierre de Coubertin did not like this at all, he had intended the first games to be in Paris in 1900 and had no intention of losing not only the premire for Paris but the games as well. Thus the second games became the Paris 1900 games.

When these games turned out not very successful and were overshadowed by the Exposition Universelle, the IOC supported the Greek idea by granting them a second series of quadrennial games, in between the first series. All of the games would be International Olympic Games; the difference was that only half of them would follow De Coubertin's idea of organising them in different countries to make the Olympic Movement more international, while the other half would follow the Greeks' idea of a permanent home with the Greek NOC as experienced organisers. This was a departure of the ancient schedule, but it was expected that if the ancient Greeks could keep a four-year schedule, the modern Olympic Movement could keep a two-year schedule. As 1902 was now too close, and Greece was experiencing internal difficulties, the 2nd Olympic Games in Athens were scheduled for 1906.

As the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri were overshadowed by the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, and as a result met with a fate similar to that of Paris 1900, the Olympic Movement was not in good shape. It desperately needed to recapture the spirit of Athens 1896. It also needed to do so quickly, as to all those who did not participate in St. Louis, Rome 1908 meant an 8-year gap. By that time there would not be much goodwill left for the Games. And on top of that, Rome was planning an Exhibition. The Athens games being just around the corner must have seemed like a lifeline. De Coubertin still disliked the idea, and did not do anything more than his function required him to. But the IOC as a whole gave the Greek NOC full support for the organisation.

4. Raidel Acea of sports games

Raidel Acea Morales (born 21 October 1990) is a Cuban-born track and field athlete who competes for Portugal in the 400 metres and 800 metres events. The 2009 Pan American junior champion over 800m, he won the bronze medal in the event at the 2011 Pan American Games.

Born and raised in the Cuban city of Cienfuegos, Acea began taking part in athletics at the age of ten and started out as a 400m runner. As he grew older, he began running in the 800m as well upon the advice of the coaches at his local high performance sports centre. His first successes came at the age of eighteen in the 2009 season. After placing third at the Rafael Fortn Memorial he claimed the 800m silver medal at the 2009 ALBA Games. He ran an 800m best of 1:46.68 minutes for third at the Barrientos Memorial in May then ran a 400m personal best of 46.19seconds the following month. His season ended on a high as he won the 800m title for Cuba at the 2009 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.

In 2010, Acea faltered in his first year as a senior athlete. He managed third over 800m at both the Barrientos meet and the Olimpiada del Deporte Cubano, but did not improve in his performances. Acea judged that he needed the season to adjust to the higher senior level. He made his senior breakthrough the very next season, starting with an 800m win at the Copa Cuba national championships, where he was also second over 400m. A duel between Acea and his more senior rival Andy Gonzlez proved to be a highlight of the Barrientos Memorial, and it was the younger Cuban who won and set a personal best of 1:45.62minutes. He won medals at the 2011 ALBA Games, claiming the 800m title and taking a silver medal with Cuba's 4400 metres relay team. He was chosen to represent Cuba at the 2011 Pan American Games and while his older compatriot Gonzlez won the 800m title, Acea earned the bronze medal with his sprint finish. He reached the podium for a second time at the event as part of Cuba's 4 400 m relay squad: Noel Ruz, Acea, Omar Cisneros and William Collazo dipped under three minutes to win the relay gold.

Knowledge Related to National Sports Day
National Sports Day is a public holiday celebrated in various countries to honour the national sports teams and sports traditions of those countries.On this day people from different age groups take a part in sports like kabaddi, marathon, basketball, hockey etc · Other Related Knowledge of sports games Modern Olympics of sports games Start and endThe Summer Olympics are more correctly referred to as the Games of the Olympiad. The first poster to announce the games using this term was the one for the 1932 Summer Olympics, in Los Angeles, using the phrase: Call to the games of the Xth Olympiad The modern Olympiad is a period of four years. The first Olympiad started on 1 January 1896, consecutive Olympiads started (or will start) on 1 January of the years evenly divisible by four. This means that the count of the Olympiads continues even if Olympic Games are cancelled: For instance, the regular intervals would have meant (summer) Olympic Games should have occurred in 1940 and 1944; both were cancelled on account of WWII. Nonetheless, the count of the Olympiads continued: The 1936 Games were those of the XI Olympiad; the next summer games were those of 1948, which were the games of the XIV Olympiad. The current Olympiad is the XXXII of the modern era, which began on 1 January 2020. Note, however, that the official numbering of the Winter Olympics does not count Olympiads- it counts only the Games themselves. For example: The first Winter Games, in 1924, were not designated as Winter Games of the VII Olympiad, but as the I Winter Olympic Games. The 1936 Summer Games were the Games of the XI Olympiad. After the 1940 and 1944 Summer Games were canceled due to World War II, the Games resumed in 1948 as the Games of the XIV Olympiad. However, the 1936 Winter Games were the IV Winter Olympic Games, and the resumption of the Winter Games in 1948 was designated the V Winter Olympic Games. The 2020 Summer Games will be the Games of the XXXII Olympiad. But due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed to 2021 rather than cancelled, and thus becoming the first postponement in the 124-year history of the Olympics.Some media people have from time to time referred to a particular (e.g., the nth) Winter Olympics as "the Games of the nth Winter Olympiad", perhaps believing it to be the correct formal name for the Winter Games by analogy with that of the Summer Games. Indeed, at least one IOC-published article has applied this nomenclature as well. This analogy is sometimes extended further by media references to "Summer Olympiads". However, the IOC does not seem to make an official distinction between Olympiads for the summer and winter games, and such usage particularly for the Winter Olympics is not consistent with the numbering discussed above. QuadrenniumSome Olympic Committees often use the term quadrennium, which it claims refers to the same four-year period. However, it indicates these quadrennia in calendar years, starting with the first year after the Summer Olympics and ending with the year the next Olympics are held. This would suggest a more precise period of four years, but, for example, the 20012004 Quadrennium would then not be exactly the same period as the XXVII Olympiad, which was 20002003. Cultural OlympiadA Cultural Olympiad is a concept protected by the International Olympic Committee and may be used only within the limits defined by an Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games. From one Games to the next, the scale of the Cultural Olympiad varies considerably, sometimes involving activity over the entire Olympiad and other times emphasizing specific periods within it. Baron Pierre de Coubertin established the principle of Olympic Art Competitions at a special congress in Paris in 1906, and the first official programme was presented during the 1912 Games in Stockholm. These competitions were also named the Pentathlon of the Muses, as their purpose was to bring artists to present their work and compete for art medals across five categories: architecture, music, literature, sculpture and painting. Nowadays, while there are no competitions as such, cultural and artistic practice is displayed via the Cultural Olympiad. The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver presented the Cultural Olympiad Digital Edition. The 2012 Olympics included an extensive Cultural Olympiad with the London 2012 Festival in the host city, and events elsewhere including the World Shakespeare Festival produced by the RSC. The 2016 games' Cultural Olympiad was scaled back due to Brazil's recession; there was no published programme, with director Carla Camurati promising "secret" and "spontaneous" events such as flash mobs. Cultural events in time for Tokyo 2020 are being planned. ------ Broadcasting career of sports games Early careerShulman began his broadcasting career at the University of Western Ontario, becoming a main voice of university football and basketball for the Western Mustangs on CHRW radio in London, Ontario, and later at radio station CKBB in Barrie, where he volunteered for the local community television station. During the early 1990s, he was hired by the Fan 1430 (a sports radio station in Toronto now known as Sportsnet 590 The Fan) and would go on to host Prime Time Sports. He worked for CTV in its coverage of the 1994 Winter Olympics from Lillehammer, Norway, covering hockey, and the 1994 World Championships of Basketball. TSNIn 1995, he became the play-by-play voice on TSN for their broadcasts of Toronto Blue Jays baseball games alongside former Blue Jays catcher Buck Martinez. Shulman remained with the network for seven years, during which time he also worked as the network's secondary play-by-play voice for NHL hockey and lead announcer for NBA basketball. He also covered CHL games and backed up host Dave Hodge on TSN Inside Sports. Until 2007, Shulman continued to work with Buck Martinez for TSN during the World Series, filing daily reports. In 2011, he returned to TSN as an analyst and contributor. ESPNShulman began working part-time for ESPN while still employed by TSN. In 2001, he moved to ESPN full-time to cover sporting events like baseball and college basketball. ESPN signed Shulman to a five-year contract extension in 2007 and assigned him to call NBA games for the network. Shulman remains the network's lead announcer for NCAA basketball. On July 27, 2007, Shulman called Barry Bonds's 754th home run for ESPN. From 2002 to 2007, he served as the lead play-by-play announcer for ESPN Radio's MLB coverage, teaming with Dave Campbell to call the network's Sunday Night Baseball broadcasts as well as the All-Star Game, Home Run Derby, and select postseason games. In 2008, Gary Thorne succeeded Shulman as the lead Sunday Night Baseball voice; however, Shulman once again teamed with Campbell to call that year's All-Star and postseason events and continued to fill in on occasional regular season broadcasts. Shulman also teamed with Orel Hershiser to call Monday Night Baseball for ESPN television from 2008 to 2010 and with Hubie Brown to call ESPN NBA coverage from 2007 to 2012. On December 1, 2010, Shulman, Hershiser, and Bobby Valentine were named as ESPN's new Sunday Night Baseball crew for the 2011 MLB season. During the Sunday Night Baseball telecast between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies on May 1, 2011, Shulman announced live to the ESPN audience that Osama bin Laden had died, a moment that has been compared to Howard Cosell's report of John Lennon's assassination on Monday Night Football in 1980. Shulman told USA Today that he had learned of bin Laden's death from Valentine, who himself received the news via text. "I talked to the producer in the truck and asked if they knew what was going on. Or maybe they asked me," said Shulman. "I couldn't just say something on-air because of a text, I needed corroboration. It all happened in about 30 seconds." Shulman also teamed with Orel Hershiser and Bobby Valentine for the ESPN Radio broadcast of the 2011 World Series won in 7 games by the St. Louis Cardinals over the Texas Rangers. That same year, he teamed with Dick Vitale for the broadcast of the IndianaKentucky rivalry on December 10, 2011. His call for the game-winning three-pointer by Christian Watford was "Jones. Watford for the win YES! YES!" with Vitale screaming "Unbelievable!" shortly after. Shulman was named 2011 National Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, the first Canadian-born announcer to be so honoured. On July 3, 2017, Shulman announced in a Sports Illustrated interview that he would step down from Sunday Night Baseball at the conclusion of the 2017 season, seeking to adjust his role at ESPN so he could spend more time with his family in Toronto. He will still participate in ESPN Radio coverage of the MLB postseason, and ESPN's college basketball coverage. SportsnetIn addition to his continued work with ESPN, on November 19, 2015, Shulman announced he would be joining the Sportsnet broadcast team for upwards of 30 Toronto Blue Jays games during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. In March 2018 it was announced that he would be joining the Sportsnet Radio network for select Blue Jays games, in addition to calling up to 50 games on Sportsnet television. In April 2018, Shulman teamed up with Sportsnet to air the podcast Swing and a Belt with Dan Shulman where every week, he covers a different topic related to baseball and interviews different people such as Mike Trout and Aaron Boone.
Knowledge Related to Sports Analytics
Sports analytics are a collection of relevant, historical, statistics that when properly applied can provide a competitive advantage to a team or individual. Through the collection and analyzation of these data, sports analytics inform players, coaches and other staff in order to facilitate decision making both during and prior to sporting events. The term "sports analytics" was popularized in mainstream sports culture following the release of the 2011 film, Moneyball, in which Oakland Athletics General Manager Billy Beane (played by Brad Pitt) relies heavily on the use of analytics to build a competitive team on a minimal budget. There are two key aspects of sports analytics on-field and off-field analytics. On-field analytics deals with improving the on-field performance of teams and players. It digs deep into aspects such as game tactics and player fitness. Off-field analytics deals with the business side of sports. Off-field analytics focuses on helping a sport organisation or body surface patterns and insights through data that would help increase ticket and merchandise sales, improve fan engagement, etc. Off-field analytics essentially uses data to help rightsholders take decisions that would lead to higher growth and increased profitability. As technology has advanced over the last number of years data collection has become more in-depth and can be conducted with relative ease. Advancements in data collection have allowed for sports analytics to grow as well, leading to the development of advanced statistics as well sport specific technologies that allow for things like game simulations to be conducted by teams prior to play, improve fan acquisition and marketing strategies, and even understand the impact of sponsorship on each team as well as its fans. Another significant impact sports analytics have had on professional sports is in relation to sport gambling. In depth sports analytics have taken sports gambling to new levels, whether it be fantasy sports leagues or nightly wagers, bettors now have more information at their disposal to help aid decision making. A number of companies and webpages have been developed to help provide fans with up to the minute information for their betting needs. · Other Related Knowledge of sports games Gambling of sports games Sports analytics have had significant impact on the field of play but sports analytics have also contributed to the growing industry of sports gambling, which accounts for approximately 13% of the global gambling industry. Valued somewhere between $700-$1,000 billion, sports gambling is extremely popular among groups of all kinds, from avid sports fans to recreational gamblers, you would be hard pressed to find a professional sporting event with nothing riding on the results. Many gamblers are attracted to sports gambling because of the plethora of information and analytics that are at their disposal when making decisions. One gambler, Bob Stoll, has been ahead of the analytics curve for a number of years, successfully betting against the line 56% (575453) of the time in college football, a significant rate as a winning percentage above 52.4% is considered profitable. With the number of statistics so openly available to fans, Stoll combines a number of different statistics such as, home and away records, record vs divisional/non-divisional teams, rush yards per rush, etc., to make educated picks that have paid off more than half of the time. Results from academic research show evidence that Twitter contains enough information to be useful for predicting outcomes in football games. With the popularity of sports gambling came the development of a number of sports betting services. "Sports betting services are provided by companies such as William Hill, Ladbrokes, bet365, bwin, Paddy Power, betfair, Unibet and many more through their websites and in many cases betting shops. In 2012, William Hill generated around 2 billion U.S. dollars in revenue with about 30 billion U.S. dollars in total being staked / wagered with the company." ------ Notable applications of sports games Houston Astros (MLB)The Astros rely heavily on analytics when making decisions. The team has employees with titles like, director of decision sciences, medical risk manager and mathematic modeler. Unlike other professional teams who typically use analytics solely for player transactions and signings, the Astros have begun to use analytics to make decisions on how they will play on the field, "applying the defensive shift more than any other team in the MLB last season." Using this approach, the Houston Astros captured their first World Series victory in franchise history in 2017. San Antonio Spurs (NBA)One of the early adopters of SportVU, the San Antonio Spurs have been using analytics to gain a competitive advantage on opponents for a number of years. Collectively as a team the Spurs have honed in on the importance of the three pointer and as a result constantly rank among the league lead in three point attempts. The teams understanding of the importance of the "three" extends beyond the offensive side of the court as they are relentless at defending the three pointer in the defensive end of the court. Chicago Blackhawks (NHL)In 2009 the Chicago Blackhawks turned to an outside company to produce analytical assessments for them. Subsequently, the Blackhawks have achieved unparalleled success in the NHL, winning three Stanley Cups in six seasons. With this success has come a number of difficult decisions for Blackhawks management as they are often only able to hang onto a core group of players following each cup run, while other key players receive offers that the Blackhawks simply cannot match under the NHL's salary cap. However, by using this analytics based system, the team has continuously been able to fill these gaps by finding players who are undervalued by other teams but will fit well with the Blackhawks' style of play. This process has been refined by the Blackhawks who provide yet another example of the longevity that can be associated with analytic base decision making.

Taste of Country Nights hosted by Sam Alex is a country music radio show syndicated throughout America and distributed by Compass Media Networks.Acquisition of Westwood One programsAfter Westwood One was bought out by Dial Global, Compass picked up several of Westwood One's former weekend music programs. Among those were The Beatle Years with Bob Malik, Out of Order with Jed the Fish, and Off the Record with Uncle Joe Benson. After Westwood One reformatted its longtime Saturday-night program Country Gold with a new host (first with Randy Owen, now with Terri Clark), Compass hired the show's previous host, Josh "Rowdy Yates" Holstead, to host a continuation of the previous format under the name The Original Country Gold. Compass also owns the rights to The Deep End with Nick Michaels, which was not previously a Westwood One program. After Dial Global merged with Cumulus Media Networks, Compass picked up additional programs, including the M. G. Kelly syndicated program library (except American Hit List) and the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40. Big D and Bubba, previously distributed by Premiere Networks, also was added to the Compass lineup; Compass now offers other country dayparts as well, including a midday show hosted by Carsen and Taste of Country Nights evenings. Acquisition of Wall Street Journal This MorningIn November 2014, Compass announced the acquisition of The Wall Street Journal This Morning, a morning-drive national news/talk program syndicated by the Wall Street Journal Radio division, which was shut down by WSJ after advertisers blacklisted the network. The program was renamed This Morning: America's First News; Gordon Deal, the program's host since 2005, was retained and the format unchanged save for the title. The first broadcast under the new title was January 2, 2015. SportsNational Football League coverageCompass, in conjunction with Dial Global, began offering a slate of Sunday afternoon games from the National Football League beginning in the 2009 NFL season. These broadcasts competed with the NFL on Westwood One and the Sports USA Radio Network. Compass's broadcast pairings feature Chris Carrino with Brian Baldinger and Matt "Money" Smith with Dale Hellestrae. Jon Rothstein serve as studio hosts. Other play-by-play announcers include Gregg Daniels and Drew Bontadelli. Compass currently carries two NFL team broadcasts, the Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders signed on to Compass in 2009 and the Cowboys joined fully in 2011. 2009 NFL games were broadcast by individual agreement with eight teams, which featured in all of Compass's games: aside from the Cowboys and Raiders, Compass carried the Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Redskins. The Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals were added to the agreement in 2010. An additional four teams added their names to Compass's NFL coverage for the 2011 season- the Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks. By virtue of the teams involved in the two international games, Compass Media Networks held exclusive national broadcast rights to both the NFL International Series and Bills Toronto Series games in 2011. When all was said and done, Compass Media expanded their coverage to 60 games a season with the new contracts. Compass, by default, carries all Raiders and Cowboys games as the national broadcast in the Sunday doubleheader. In weeks where neither the Raiders nor the Cowboys play in one of the Sunday afternoon time slots, Compass will pick another game to air nationally. The Sunday doubleheader games are offered to stations a la carte. Compass also offers the Raiders' and Cowboys' prime time games as well, but only to full-time (defined as carrying 12 or more games from each respective team) affiliates, to avoid conflict with the national contract Westwood One has with the league; the Cowboys' Thanksgiving contest is also subject to this restriction. NCAA football and basketball coverageDial Global and Compass announced they would offer a slate of NCAA football games beginning in the 2009 season, competing with ESPN Radio, Sports USA Radio Network, Dial Global, Nevada Sports Network, and Touchdown Radio productions. No specific conference affiliation was announced, and the schedule featured games with teams from the Pac-12 Conference, Western Athletic Conference, Big Ten Conference, Big East Conference, Big 12 Conference, Conference USA, and the Southeastern Conference. In December 2009, Compass Media announced they had gained the national radio broadcasting rights for the Texas Bowl. The Texas Bowl rights lasted only one season as ESPN Radio took over the rights in 2010. By 2012, Compass Media was only broadcasting games from the Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC conferences. In July 2009, Compass Media announced they would expand their sports coverage to include NCAA basketball, competing with Westwood One. While Compass can't gain rights to any NCAA Tournament games, they announced that they signed a contract with the Big Ten Conference to be the exclusive radio provider of the first and second rounds of the Big Ten Tournament in 2010 and all tournament games beginning in 2011. In 2011, Compass Media Sports increased their coverage of the Big Ten conference by inking a multi-year deal to broadcast the Big Ten Championship game, meaning the Big Ten Basketball Tournament and Big Ten Championship game will be on the same radio affiliates nationwide and at . Major League baseball coverageIn April 2012, Compass announced an agreement with Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to air 25 games out-of-market throughout the team's 2012 season. Chris Carrino and Steve Quis were named as play-by-play announcers for the broadcasts, with Steve Phillips and Darryl Hamilton to serve as analysts. For the 2013 season, Compass acquired rights to select Tampa Bay Rays home games to increase their MLB coverage. Compass has not syndicated MLB games since the 2013 season ------ Los Angeles Kings of sports games Jiggs McDonald was the Kings' original play-by-play announcer, serving from their inception in 1967 to 1972, when he left to join the newly-established then-Atlanta Flames (now the Calgary Flames). It was in 1972 that Miller submitted a tape to Kings founder and owner Jack Kent Cooke, who was also the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team. While Cooke said to him "You're going to be my choice", Cooke instead decided to hire long-time San Francisco Bay Area announcer Roy Storey to fill the void left by McDonald. When Storey left the team after one season, the Kings turned their attention back to Miller, who was then hired in 1973, and served as their play-by-play announcer until his retirement in 2017. Miller's broadcast partners have included Dan Avey, Rich Marotta, Pete Weber, the current radio voice of the Nashville Predators, current Kings radio voice Nick Nickson and former Kings right wing Jim Fox. He called games on both television and radio until 1990, when the Kings stopped simulcasting and Miller went exclusively to television. Due to the NHL's exclusive national broadcast contract with NBC that prevented local television announcers to call playoff games beyond the first round, Miller and Fox were not allowed to call the Kings' Stanley Cup Finals games on television. But due to their overwhelming popularity among fans, Kings management had Miller and Fox record their call of the potential clinching games for later distribution. As a result, when the Kings won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history in 2012, Miller told the story of the franchise up to that point when he said: This is for you, Kings fans, wherever you may be. All the frustration and disappointment of the past is gone. The 45-year drought is over! The Los Angeles Kings are indeed the kings of the National Hockey League. They are the 2012 Stanley Cup champions! The countdown is on3, 2, 1, it's over!Miller later recalled that he'd written out his final call in advance, and saved it so he could keep from stumbling over the words out of excitement. With the Kings having locked up the game and the Cup with an outburst of three goals on a five-minute power play in the first period, many fans sitting below the press box exchanged high fives with Miller and Fox during the final minutes. Two years later, Miller called Alec Martinez' overtime goal, which gave the Kings their second Stanley Cup. Here on the left side, Martinez over to Clifford. Right side, shot from there. The save, the rebound, SCORE! Kings win the Cup! The Kings, Martinez getting the rebound. The Kings have won the Stanley Cup! The Kings, in the longest game in their history, win it, 3-2! As the celebration got underway, Miller added a postscript which began, "Royalty reigns again in the National Hockey League!" He later recalled that he had been saving it for the Cup-clinching game, as he had in 2012. Miller's first book, Tales From the Los Angeles Kings, was published in October 2006. Miller's second book, Tales From The Los Angeles Kings Locker Room: A Collection Of The Greatest Kings Stories Ever Told, was published in April 2013. On March 2, 2017, due to health reasons, Miller announced his retirement as the team's television play-by-play announcer, a position he held for 44 years, and at the time of the announcement, having called 3,351 Kings games,. His retirement became effective after the final two regular season games of the Kings' 2016-17 season, a home game against the Chicago Blackhawks on April 8, 2017, and a road game against the Anaheim Ducks on April 9, 2017. On September 12th, 2017, the Kings announced that Bob Miller would remain with the Kings organization as an ambassador and continue to contribute to the team on a part-time basis which includes being the MC for the Kings Legends Nights. Other appearancesHe has performed voice over and on-camera work for television shows and movies in scenes which included a hockey announcer. Among his credits are an episode of Cheers and the films Rollerball, Miracle on Ice, The Mighty Ducks, and D2: The Mighty Ducks. Nationally, he has worked for ESPN, ABC and FOX. He also called some games for FX during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.
