Again, not as bad as Charlie Simmer.
Offense, taken. Simmer may not be exciting, but he knows what he's talking about. Kerr (Where is it!) on the other hand should have stuck to radio, or analyst stuff maybe?

Don't forget "he's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!" I could almost hear Charlie Simmer trying to back away from him.

And who can forget such classics as:

"Where is it", "A Whirling Dervish" and "Therapy for Glencross".

Again, I have nothing against Simmer except for the inordinate amount of times he starts a sentence with "Again..."

And now that I've pointed it out to you, you won't not hear it either.

THAT'S the drinking game. He says "again" probably 50 times a game.



Anyways, scared about this one. I hate losing to the Canucks so... so much.

Every single sentence. I didn't notice until someone, maybe you, pointed it out

Now its really annoying.

I think it was me. Sorry about that but it's also driving me nuts. I used to like Simmer too. Now the S-Net broadcasts are painful. Add that with the Flames losing. Not fun times.

Again, it seems like our commentators enjoy "all kinds of" catchphrases.

So... in this drinking game, what happens if Simmer starts his sentence with "Again...", and is cut off with a trademark "WHERE IS IT?" from Kerr?

I don't think slamming one drink would be nearly sufficient.

I hear ya there. Although at least now I don't want to throw my phone across the room when it happens, knowing it can only benefit our draft position.

I hope the kids have a good game.

Damnit. Now I'm going to be looking for the "again" from Simmer and it's going to drive me nuts. Also, Simmer IS NOT made for high definition television. Looks like his skin has been stretched and tanned in the sun for 3 days than had a whole lot of makeup slapped on it. Just horrible.


Go flames btw

We should add: "When Rob Kerr eats Swedish/Zetterberg's snowballs: Drink the place dry"

Quick question about SNFlames.

How does this work exactly? i have SN1 (channel 159 on Shaw), but the SNFlames ones are showing as PPV on my shaw system.

I thought it was packaged together... Does the PPV channel just come live when the game starts?

I thought you had to pay for PPV? I don't have Shaw, so I'm obviously guessing.

Yea it should be packaged together. It will just come on when the game starts.

Why is SNET Flames playing the preview of the Oilers game? I'd rather watch a blank screen...

Try cheering for a west coast team when you live on the east coast. Games usually ends around 12 o clock here.

I wish we had more 5 pm game times. That would be lovely.
