Sorry, Suzyn Waldman was the perp.
I think it may have actually been when Joe Torre left the Yanks. they made plenty of fun of her up here in Red Sox Nation
Nothing was as bad as the day Roger clemens announced that he was coming back... she practically sounded like she was about to climax.

As a golfer I think that line is funny. Ahlers sucks and so does Joe Beninati. Randy Hahn might be worse than both of them. Jack Edwards sucks too.

I guess it's his anti-Kings "I seem to have forgotten where I came from" bias but I cannot stand him.

Mike Emrick is so ****ing terrible. I cannot believe he is in the hall of fame of all things.... if he's doing a game, I usually mute the TV.

Changes are still rolling in...

This Tuesday's Sabres/Canadiens game on Versus will be a Versus production, but they are using Gord Miller for PBP for the first time ever. He'll be with Pierre McGuire inside the glass. Miller is the #1 PBP guy for TSN's games in Canada.

Here's a sampling of Gord and Pierre:



Reminds me a bit of Gary Thorne with his excitement but unlike Thorne he pronounces the players names correctly.

Dave Strader (excellent PBP guy for Phoenix), Billy Jaffe and Brian Engblom will be calling Washington vs. Phoenix on Monday.

Excellent news. Definitely much better talent than the Beninatis of the world. If only they'd also dump Emrick, that would be perfect (though I'm sure it ain't gonna happen any time soon).

If Emrick ever runs into you in real life he'll pitchfork the **** out of you.
