So, we just upgraded to an LG 51" Plasma...

I was really skeptical about how much better it would be, but I am a believer in HD now. TV w/ tax was $800 on sale. The upgrade for HD service is $12 more than what I was paying w/ WOW. Even the games on Versus/NBC Sports is amazing! Totally worth the cash.

Now I just need to upgrade this freaking team.

Shootout showcase. Another reason why FSOhio CBJ coverage stinks.

To their credit, it is refreshing to see better talent and determination than we are currently marching out there.

Watching my own kid play youth sports was ocassionaly entertaining.

Broadcasting OTHER people's kids playing youth sports is just plain brutal.

Picking fights with other parents is where the real fun is.

Agreed - Shootout showcase is LAME.

Also: the Fox Sports Ohio girls. I want sports coverage not eye candy.

Mostly they just look kinda stoned (Sara, the dark-haired one) or stare directly into your soul (Hallie, the taller, blonde one). It's like they couldn't even find anyone with previous experience in front of a camera.

And I also wonder what the point of them are? If they're here to attract a male audience... why? It's a sports channel; you already have a predominantly male audience.

Sounds like Ray Crawford may not be back for next season:

Not sure how that's a promotion for his wife. She leaves a decent gig to appear 2 nights a week on the 5th best news station in Chicago?

A #CBJ spokesman tells me that all four of the team's broadcasters will be back for next season.

I need to unfollow Schmidt. She's blowing up my twitter with Crew and OSU spring ball. I really couldn't care less about either. It's her job, I get it.

Will refollow when CBJ gets back.

Stop it right there! Outside of the overused cliches, I don't think Davidge is that bad comparatively. Natalie is not bad either. The problem is Rimer brings the entire broadcast team down.

I'd be happy to have him back. He's not the problem and they could do a helluva lot worse (and they've proven as much). Card tricks, anyone?
