Five for Friday: A Q&A with Wizards announcer Dave Borchardt

How long have you worked for the Wizards and what led you down this career path? You probably know the team better than almost anyone but the coaching staff at this point, what are your expectations for this coming season? Who's been impressive? What new player are you most excited about? This year, you will have the role of "voice of the Wizards" added to your resume as they move from MetroSports to KCWE. What's your preparation going to be like for the games? An influx of international players often brings with it some names that can trip an announcer up. How much time have you spent perfecting the pronunciation of the player's names?
Do you have call in your pocket for the first Wizards goal of the year? Do you plan on having a signature goal call for the season?
