I perform a wide variety of duties here at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and honestly love every challenging minute of it! A couple weeks ago Ralph Wall who does a fantastic job of shooting video and making video productions for the agency, I might add, hit me up to be the voice of one of our country’s first conservation-minded presidents — Theodore Roosevelt.
“Say what? Are you serious, Ralph?” was my response to his asking me to be the voice of Teddy Roosevelt. “Yep,” he abruptly remarked. “Go on the Internet and listen to Theodore,” he added. “You’ll have to alter your voice to try to fit his as best as you can, I think you’ll do just fine, you’re a broadcaster, Wags.” Ralph e-mailed Roosevelt’s conservation-based statements to me that I had to read. The rest, shall we say, is history (well, not really). I gave it my best shot. Here’s the video with my Roosevelt lines at the beginning of it. You’ll have to judge for yourself if I sounded anything like the president nicknamed “The American Lion” or not. In any event, enjoy the video that Ralph produced, entitled: Nebraska’s Big Game.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZcmI9pBXTE&list=UUPa_GXVek6JUe7FPPxiZ8mg&index=2[/youtube]
