I've never heard of the bostin commentator until I was on this forum seeing videos people posted - but I like that guy - Edwards. I wish the Canucks had an announcer like that. Completely honest from his own fan bases' eyes - that's all you need!

John Garrot is an okay color commentator but he should be more homer...

Haha okay I can never tell if your serious or not. you spelled a bunch of names wrong and always come off as over the top. Many people think Garrett is a notorious homer as is.

Tim hortons is an anchor of Canadian culture.

Created by a former hockey player. 3000 stores nation wide and 100,000 employees.

It holds a 62 percent market share nation wide in Canada for coffee shops... Starbucks is 2nd at 7 percent.

He is, but nothing like the bostin guy Edwards. Listen to the guy. That's how Shorthouse and Garrett should be imo. And I'm serious!

But on bright side there was billion places where you get amazing stakes, pasta and seafood for cheap.
Just curious as to what place that was. We have tons of pizza places here. A lot of them are underrated and then there's a group of Pizza places that most tourists know about because they're overhyped. Only NY and Chicago will you find the selection of both quality and quantity when it comes to pizza in the U.S.

Gene principe is one of the biggest turds on air. Oilers broadcast seem like they are targeted at children, however when they get that fat slob Stofford on time from time it's a hoot

Don't allow the d-bag morning DJs who just - for some unknown reason - got their own tv show come on and talk during your broadcast. The first half of the second in the Flyers-Caps game the other night was absolutely painful to listen to.

And I thought Beninati was annoying to listen to...

I think even if I was another team's fan and had to listen to our guys, I would think the same thing. I think they are the best.

Say what you will about Jack Edwards, but at least when the other team scores he's just as excited.

Steakburger has killer deals. I mean 4 bucks for a meal that would cost 15 bucks here? Well, I have no idea what it's really like.

I personally like Uno's better than Giordano's. But one very underrated one is Pequod's. You can look them up on Yelp. Haven't met many people who have disliked Pequod's.

I personally think the famous places aren't as good as some of the "hidden" gems that are around the city. I'm not a huge deep dish fan, but I do like it. My favorite style has to be Chicago-style thin, followed by NY-style, and then deep dish.

Look at username. Then everything should make sense. If it does not, read some of his other posts. You'll quickly see what I mean.

I noticed that the Rangers announcers are just as big homers as the Pens. At least they were last game

It's also the most over rated place I've ever seen. Nothing about it is good. I haven't been there in years and don't plan on going any time soon.
