Steve Rushin: "By the age of 18, the average American has witnessed 200,000 acts of violence on television, most of them occurring during Game 1 of the NHL playoff series." Brian Skrudland, on the new two-referee system: "I think the game has gotten better. (The two-ref system) keeps players from taking cheap shots behind the play. I never thought I'd like it, considering the way I like to hack."

He is racist against Anglophones. His severe French Canadian bias borders on racism.

Ogo,I don't think Chooch is a francophone. I could be wrong but I don't think the ethnicity of these guys comes into play. Maybe a Habs vs. rest of world biase.

on quotes, Claude Ruel giving a pep talk before a HNIC national game. 'C'mon guys,they're watching you tonight from one Atlantic to the other'.

"If I could tell time," Red replied, "do you think I'd still be a referee!?"
Chili, I don't think Storey ever reffed in the CFL. He played, in fact I think he was MVP of a Grey Cup game for Toronto, back in the war years.

can't remember who said it about tim hunter, but:
"he looks like he ran a 100 yard race in a 90 yard gym"

i can't find a good picture to post, but if you've seen him, you know what a great line this is.
