There is nothing left in anybody

Known to most of the world as “The Skiathlon Announcer” Duluth’s own Chad Salmela has gained notoriety as one of the stars of the Sochi Olympics. According to the web site Awful Announcing, “Chad Salmela is to the Winter Olympics what Rowdy Gaines is to the Summer Olympics.”

Here’s NBC’s official link.

My favorite is at 57 seconds when Salmela just belts out "AND HERE COMES HELLNER!!"

Reminds me of Sochi. Here's what I learned today about the most expensive ski jump in the world. It must be lovely there. http://www.vice.com/video

Kind of a random question, but I remember having a Mr. Salmela as an art teacher at Washburn almost thirty years ago now, and I remember that he coached Nordic skiing somewhere in the district as well. By any chance are these two men related?
