Time for Beyonce to Upgrade the boys in the booth.
How do we want to handle this? Should I set up a paypal acct?
Or should we expect JP to cough up the bucks?

Switch their feed to a game from 1982... hilarity ensues.

Clearly this is not the burning issue I thought it was last night when I posted it.

Sorry boys, but you're stuck with your 10" Philco for the rest of the season.

Even HD monitors and stronger prescriptions don't cure "Homerism"

The viewing public would be better served if we all kicked in and bought Rimer and Gare a set of matching lobotomies.

What? It's too late? Well, nevermind then.

Every broadcast team is Homerish in there own way. Our broadcast team just chooses to be a little more blind to calls than others. Gare is getting better at not being so homerish but Rimmer is just blind by the organization that supplies his paycheck. He exaggerates everything up to every single punch being a knockout blow.

So we've gone from Jeff not having enough to be excited about on the air, and biting his tongue, -to "new Jeff" being over-excited now that we're winning. I prefer the new Jeff.

Better yet... let's start a LIST OF SUGGESTED NEW RIMER AND GARE-ISMS.

Was ...........>>.............. Now


Gare: Slow it down/Stop it right there >> Not so fast dammit

Rimer: That one hit the post >> (ping) WTF!

Gare: Kamboomski >> It's about frickin time.

Rimer: Nash with the puck >> Captain Whoopass with the puck

If regular broadcasts of games are good enough for the Toronto "war room", then it should be good enough for Rimer and Gare.
