My New York City Counterpart

The man on the megaphone is Kenny as he does the running commentary of the West 4th Street Courts All-Star game near lower Manhattan in New York. I'm just glad I don't have to use such a device to do the public address announcements at Yankee Stadium - I'd have to speak very loudly to be heard in the upper deck.
The action here at the West 4th courts always draws a crowd of spectators because many of the top local and NBA players often stop by to take part in the high-stakes pick-up games that are staged every week during the summer.
And if you're hungry, a burger and fries are just across the street at the golden arches.
You can barely see Kenny's megaphone just at the left elbow of the player in red wearing #3 on the right side of the picture. Not the best place to do play by play, but he made the most of his location and was on top of the action at both ends of the court.
