A hearty congratulations and bravo goes out to Pacers radio broadcaster, Mark Boyle as he preps to call his 2,500th Pacers game on Thursday at at the Fieldhouse.
To be able to do something you have a passion for even once is a gift. Tonight, I'll broadcast my 2,500th Pacer game...— Mark Joseph Boyle (@Mark_J_Boyle) January 5, 2017
...and the debt I owe the Simons, the Pacers, and our fans for allowing me to indulge my passion for this long is incalculable....— Mark Joseph Boyle (@Mark_J_Boyle) January 5, 2017
...It doesn't seem even remotely adequate to say it this simply, but I will anyway. Thank You.— Mark Joseph Boyle (@Mark_J_Boyle) January 5, 2017
Calling his 29th season for the Blue and Gold, Boyle's excellence on the mic always delivers HD-quality visuals for fans unable to watch the game in person or on TV. His ability to describe big moments and react spontaneously has enhanced some of the greatest highlights in franchise history. You can listen to my personal favorite below.
While Boyle offered a humble 'thank you' to the team and fans on this milestone game, it should be those of us enjoying the listen over the year who are thanking MJB. So make sure you reply to Mark’s social media posts to share some love.
