That they are. That doesn't make it a given that they'll be in every building, though. Discover and Verizon, for example, are on similar sponsorship levels as them and you don't see their boards everywhere.



Non-related, but just discovered while watching the game that Craig Hartsburg is an assistant with the Jackets.

The Philly and Chicago broadcasting teams don't get as much love as they should, they are both fantastic. They have a perfect mix of energy and professionalism.

I was watching the Bruins/Canes game tonight on the NHL network. I must say i really like the guys in Carolina's booth. The play-by-play guy got a cool voice and the color guy was pretty knowledgeable and unbiased.

I noticed that tonight as well. When I saw it was the home feed I said "crap, I don't wanna listen to these guys" but they called it right down the middle all night.

Many of the American announcers are BORING as hell. Some are great, but watching the Sabres game the other night almost put me to sleep. His voice, lack of excitement and overall monotone demeanor was horrible. There seem to be a lot of them like this. Seems like a lot of them are announcers for other sports and do hockey on the side, since they have no clue about the sport. Also lots of homer announcers, I am just guessing it is this way for all teams, I just don't notice it being a Toronto homer myself.

Absolutely not, just an awful idea.

-Notice a general consensus that Dallas and St. Louis have good crews.

-Absolutely despise the guy from Chicago. He sounds like he got punched in the stomach while having a stroke when Crawford makes a save.

This as well. Loved his recent call on Vinny's screaming one timer. He quickly became on of my favorites in the league.

The pitt and sj announcers are awful. The wings feed keeps playing a Sam Bernstein Law Firm commercial .The Phoenix broadcast sucks. Their camera makes the ice look too bright. I liked listening to the Tampa and Chicago announcers.

Columbus p by p is horrendous.

The Sharks are fun to listen to. Seem to know a lot and are not too homer to be unbearable.

I really like the NESN guys.

Doc Emmeric is my favorite announcer.

The Buffalo guy says Gerbe better than any other human in the world.

American's have nice ass fast food.

Southern fans are lucky as hell when it comes to cheap food/beer.


Commercials suck everywhere

I don't remember fast food sucking when I was in last in Canada in 04, but reading here that seems to be the case?

So many big brands (Sonic, In N Out, Popeyes, Fatburger, Hardees, White Castle, Whataburger) are just not found here.

And our fast food is roughly 1.5-2x as much.

Edit: They may have them in Ontario. Out west we don't even have Taco Bell

Well pretty much all these burger places are regional. For instance, the Chicago area has White Castle and Sonic, but none of the other ones. There might be Hardees somewhere around as they used to be big here, but I never see them. In N Out is only out west, White Castle midwest and New York, Whataburger I think is only in Texas. Fatburger I've never even heard of.

We're deprived of Tim Hortons, though, so +1 Canada

I don't think you're allowed to be a sports announcer in Boston unless you're a huge homer.

Granted I was joking and I've never heard the car commercial with the sound on, I can't imagine that it could possibly be worse than this commercial.

What will Toews/Kane star in next?

Wish I could try Tim Hortons

Here in Wisconsin we don't have Chick-Fil-A (say what you want about them, their food is delicious!), and Culver's makes up for the lack of In-N-Out. There's a Hardee's in town I sometimes go to, mainly because it's 24/7
