I don't bother asking for free tickets, so I haven't gotten any myself. Gare gave out more and more tickets the drunker he got.

I'll be honest, I'm really nervous about anyone in hockey that is actually best buds with Rimer and not simply humoring him.
Like the guy said, he's been around the game for a while... you know how, like, if you know a person for a while, they can bring something valuable to a relationship? I don't care for Rimer as a commentator really, but I'm sure he has qualities that people in the hockey world, hell, people in general, would find endearing every person has those qualities, and those people who like those qualities. He seems enthusiastic in the footage away from the booth that I've seen; he obviously loves what he does. You sound very crass.
