Sudbury’s Joe Bowen is a Canadian sportscaster and he is affectionally known as “The Voice of the Toronto Maple Leafs”, having broadcast over 3,000 Leafs games. He began calling games for the Leafs in 1982, after being the radio voice for the Nova Scotia Voyageurs. Bowenʼs catchphrase is “Holy Mackinaw!” typically used when an amazing goal is scored or a big save is made during the course of the action on the ice. It has been suggested over the years that the phrase originated from a California spirit yell, but Bowen claims he got the phrase from his dad who said “Holy Mackinaw” instead of swearing. He is also known for his creative alliteration when announcing the starting goaltenders (e.g. technicians of the tangled twine, watchdogs of the webbed wickets, officers of the oblong onion bags, etc.) Bowen does the radio play-by-play on Sportsnet 590 The Fan and TSN Radio 1050 with Jim Ralph. On March 7, 2017, Bowen called his 3,000th game as Voice of the Leafs, a 3-2 home victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
