I have worked in recording and broadcast studios most of my adult life and every now and then it can get really hot.

Most of the time it is usually because of a broken air conditioner that the broadcast booth is too hot.

Sometimes a combination of sun coming through a window and soundproofing can also lead to a hot studio.

Engineers like to keep the broadcast booth and studio cool since it's better for the equipment but what is the talent supposed to do when it's just too hot in the booth?

Depending upon what sport you are announcing, it can get pretty hot like the above photo of Jim Nantz and Jack Nicklaus while doing a golf broadcast. There is one sport where you would think it would never get too hot since ice is involved and that's hockey.

Every Sweater Number in Detroit Red Wings History Worn Just Once (Or Not At All)

For whatever reason, these numbers have either been worn just once or never at all in the nearly 100-year history of Detroit Red Wings hockey, according to Hockey Reference.

(Hockey Reference suggests that No. 6 was only worn by Cummy Burton, which is incorrect as Larry Aurie wore the number first and the number is pseudo-retired. Such inaccuracies are difficult to narrow down, so where they can be corrected they will be.)
