John Keating makes his home away from home in the Fox Sports Detroit studios. He's often the go-to on FSD giving previews to Tigers games and talking shop during Red Wings intermissions. Usually a deliberate talker with a pretty smooth delivery, Keats doesn't struggle too much because he's preparing for each word individually.  Tonight, had a bear of a time with the name of a Phoenix Coyotes left winger - Lauri Korpikoski during the second intermission of the Wings-Coyotes tilt. It sounds exactly like it looks - Kore-pick-ow-ski. Yeah, tell that to Keating, who is obviously way too old to be a Kelly Kapowski/Saved by the Bell fan. With Keating's meticulousness and his tongue tied in knots, I thought he was just going to give up. Cohort Darren Eliot wasn't about to step up and bail him out either.
