Talking Heads

- May 11th, 2012

Couple things bugging me, but just a little bit ….
-It’s good to see TSN and CBC try out all these players, ex-players and coaches on their panel, but it’s starting to get a little crazy. Like the NFL networks who use every retired star or coach that has had any success. When are they going to run out of jobs to hand out? Somebody Tweeted the other day that Bruce Boudreau was so good on HNIC that he is sure to have a permanent seat among the expert analysts if the coaching thing doesn’t work out. Boudreau is okay, but thankfully Anaheim signed him to a two year extension yesterday. As for Sean O’Donnell, well, I know he’s from Ottawa and a good guy, but he just doesn’t have the demeanor for TV. His face doesn’t move. Sorta reminds me of Mike Peca in the nice-try-but-it-didn’t-work category.
-I love baseball, but Triple-A eventually flopped in the nation’s capital. People quit caring. So why is Double-A going to be any better?
-If I hear Alex Ovechkin say “it’s not about me” one more time, I’m gonna puke. Did he have that attitude when negotiating his long term contract?
-After a solid first round of predictions in which I went 6-2, I need the Caps to beat the Rangers tomorrow night just so I don’t go oh-fer in Round 2. Yup, I also had Nashville, St. Louis and Philadelphia making it to the conference finals. What’s the matter with those people? Don’t they realize they’re ruining my chances of being considered a great prognosticator?
-There’s more, but I have to take a break right now. I’ll be back.
