Curling a constant in CHEVRIER's diverse broadcasting career
By Bob WEEKS, Page S4
Most of the obituaries of legendary broadcaster Don CHEVRIER, who died this week, pointed out he was the play-by-play man of the first broadcast of Blue Jays baseball. There were also numerous references to his work with the Ottawa Senators, in boxing and at the Olympics.
But if the truth be known, Canadians probably remember CHEVRIER best for his work on curling.
Chevy started his curling work in 1972 at the Brier in Saint_John's, alongside Don DUGUID, who had just come off back-to-back Canadian and world championship victories. The two were inseparable on curling broadcasts for the next decade, becoming icons in the sport.
The partnership extended beyond their work. They remained fast Friends long after the red light went out, and DUGUID was hit hard by the sudden passing.
"I'm pretty shattered," he said from his home in Winnipeg. "I played golf in Florida about a month ago and Chevy came over for dinner. He was fine then."
CHEVRIER had been battling a blood disorder but DUGUID said that the cause of his death was still undetermined.
On air, DUGUID learned what so many other colour commentators came to know over the years. "He was just masterful," DUGUID said. "He had impeccable timing. The producer would tell him he had 25 seconds until a commercial and he'd fill 25 exactly."
DUGUID also praised his tremendous memory; CHEVRIER could come up with the most unusual statistic or memory with instant recall.
Back in 1972, events such as the Brier weren't given the wall-to-wall coverage they are today. DUGUID and CHEVRIER would call the last two games of the round robin - there was no playoff at that time - and also provide a 15-minute recap that aired late at night during the week.
The two also worked together on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Curling Classic, a popular made-for-television program that showed condensed, taped games on a weekly basis.
CHEVRIER not only called the biggest curling games, but he played the sport, joining a team with Canadian Football League legend Russ Jackson and curling entrepreneur Doug Maxwell at the Humber Highland Curling Club in Toronto.
When he left Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CHEVRIER didn't leave curling. In 1986, TSN took to the air and curling was a large part of its programming. CHEVRIER got the call to work some of those events including the '86 Mixed, where he teamed up with Ray Turnbull, who was making his television debut. Like DUGUID, Turnbull marvelled at CHEVRIER's talent.
"He had vocal cords to end all vocal cords," Turnbull recalled. "You could hear that voice all over the rink."
Turnbull recalled that first event, played at Toronto's Bayview Country Club, where he was the subject of a rookie initiation, instigated by CHEVRIER.
"We were standing on the ice at Bayview in front of the camera, about to go live. The red light goes on and Chevy starts into his intro. I was listening to him and trying to think of what I was going to say. All of a sudden he stops, looks at me and says, 'Ah [screw] it Moosey, you do this,' " said Turnbull, who is known in curling circles as Moosey.
"I went white. I assumed we were on live. But it was a setup - the guys were having one over on the rookie."
After moving to the United States and covering everything from title fights with Howard Cosell to the Kentucky Derby, CHEVRIER was reunited with DUGUID to call curling for NBC cable at the 2002 and 2006 Winter Olympics. In Turin, the duo called a whopping 26 games, 15 of them live and gained an almost cult following in the United States.
While DUGUID was mourning the loss of his good friend, he also provided an update on another curling-broadcast legend, Don Wittman, who replaced CHEVRIER and continued on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's coverage until this year. Wittman is battling cancer at his home in Winnipeg.
"He's very upbeat," DUGUID said. "It's a struggle, but he's staying positive."
Just as CHEVRIER was, Wittman is as versatile a broadcaster as there is, providing the call for everything from Donovan Bailey's gold-medal sprint and the famous brawl at the 1987 world junior hockey championship.
But for curling fans, both of them are always going to be best known for their work calling rocks and brooms.
