How do you take a great moment in Toronto Maple Leafs history and make it better? Simple, you have Joe Bowen narrate it! Here is a list of my favorite calls by the legendary Joe Bowen himself! I’m sure I speak on behalf of all of Leafs Nation when I say we’d love to have him back to do televised play-by-play.
Four years ago a petition was started in an effort to bring Joe Bowen back to the television broadcast booth, the voices of Leafs Nation were not heard then – I wonder if anybody would be listening today? So let’s go Leafs fans – let’s bring him back! SIGN THE PETITION v2.0 HERE!
