Jeff Wagenheim: UFC announcer Bruce Buffer looks back after 17 years in the octagon

The first time I saw Bruce Buffer introducing UFC fighters, more than 15 years ago, my mind flashed to Marv Albert. I remembered that I'd read or heard a story about the eminent basketball play-by-play man as a kid in Brooklyn, and how he and his brothers Al and Steve, both of whom also grew up to be sports announcers, would sit around their living room pretending to call games. That's exactly what one would expect from a family of little boys with big dreams.
