Events of Criminal Case
The sports announcer made his first appearance to announce one of the most important football matches of the Major Football League season. The match was between the Grimsborough Quails and the Wippeka Armadillos. He was mainly focusing on the Quails' star quarterback, Troy Takiguchi, when suddenly Troy—while running with the ball—collapsed onto the pitch, shocking everyone, including the announcer. He then exclaimed that the referees were calling a time-out and that the medics were rushing to Troy.
The sports announcer returned when he served as the announcer for a roller derby match between the Helter Skaters and the Pacific Pixies. He focused on the two team captains, but when the Helter Skater captain was knocked unconscious, he informed the audience that the game had to be suspended. At this point, Amy Young and the player had to start an investigation, thus confirming that a premeditated murder was imminent.
The sports announcer appeared for a third time when he served as the announcer of the first ever Women's Ski Jump event in the Frosty Cup. He exclaimed how history was being made as ski jumper Anjulie Cruz was going to be the first woman to go down the Frosty Cup ramp. Moments later, the kick-off of the event saw Anjulie quickly gaining speed down the ramp, but unfortunately, the event was cut short when the ski jumper was sliced in half as she was about to take off—causing a murder investigation to commence.
The sports announcer appeared once more when he served as the commentator for the 23rd Road Rage Rally race in Mazunda. He commented on Lily Karam's proximity to winning. When Lily crossed the finish line, the announcer exclaimed that Lily had won the race in her first year of participating. He later said that something was wrong—namely, that Lily was dragging her unconscious co-driver Nomena Leroy out of their car.
