Impemba is a 1981 graduate of Stevenson High School in Sterling Heights, Michigan  and Michigan State University. In high school Mario showed the first flashes of his talent as a member to the school's forensic team. He won numerous invitational tournaments before finishing 3rd in the state final tournament.
At Michigan State University, Impemba volunteered to announce whatever games were being broadcast on the university sports network. As a professional, he started out announcing games for the Peoria Chiefs single-A baseball club in 1987. Impemba also served as the sports director at WXCL Radio and the play-by-play voice of the Peoria Rivermen of the now-defunct International Hockey League during the 1987-88 season. From 1989 to 1990, Mario served as the voice of the Quad City Angels single-A team in Davenport, Iowa. In 1991, Impemba began calling games for the Tucson Toros of the Pacific Coast League.
During the baseball offseason, Impemba is the official radio voice of the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies men's basketball team on WDFN (1130 AM) as well as games on Fox Sports Detroit.
Impemba always announces the game's attendance when there's 1 out left in the game, and usually rounds down, i.e. "Bottom of the ninth 2 outs, the Tigers are about to win in front of a crowd of better than 41,000 fans - 41,212 to be exact".
Mario has a Tigers blog named "Last Call", as well as a website, marioimpemba.com
Mario won a Michigan Emmy Award in June 2006 in the sports play-by-play category.
Mario's wife is named Cathy. The couple have 2 sons: Brett (18) and Daniel (15). The Impembas live in Macomb County, Michigan. Brett was drafted in the 49th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft by the Detroit Tigers, and is committed to playing baseball for Oakland University.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
