No Score (canadians Read)

This is for anyone watching Game 3 on CBC....

IS IT JUST ME OR DOES ANYONE NOTICE THAT THIS SO CALLED ANNOUNCER BOB COLE SAYS THAT THERE IS NO SCORE EVERY 2 SECONDS!
I can't listen to a thing without hearing him say "NO SCORE" and what are with those damn flame horns in the crowd. Nobody else has those but calgary fans...WHY? This isn't a junior game its the NHL. Stick to the towels and get those annoying horns outta here.

But back to Cole...RETIRE NOW. Don't think he does this? Well in Game 4 if it's scoreless in the 1st count and he'll say it atleast 10 times. He did 11 in tonights first period?

Do i have a lot of time on my hands....?
No, but it's hard to watch the game when he's doing all these annoying things...

GO TAMPA
Canadian Count-19

Flames canadian count-15

Where's ABC ill look for that.....

I've been thinking Bob Cole should retire for years... but to me he seems to be better lately than he's been in a long time. He's awake, he's getting names right consistently, he sounds like he's enjoying the games. Maybe he's eating better or getting more exercise or something, but in my opinion he's been better this playoffs than he's been in years.

If it's 1-0 Calgary after the first but no scoring in the second I predict he'll say 1-0 Calgary (or words to that effect) at least 10 times during the second, but you don't have to hear it if you turn your sound off.

Harry Neale is CBC's Leafs play-by-play man. He barely knows the NAMES of the players on either team, so he has to fill the time somehow.

Thankfully, this is his last series before retirement.

Neale does colour, Cole does play-by-play. And apparantly both are drawing rave reviews on HF this year.

Whatever. I try to avoid both of them as much as possible.

I especially love repeated calls of "And Sundin coughs it up to the other team..."

Don't have much to say about Neale, but I couldn't agree more about those stupid horns. It seriously does sound like it's some kind of junior game with those things. The fans are loud enough in the dome, and it's packed. You don't need annoying horns to make noise! ::S

Anything that annoys you is great.

Horns, cowbells, whatever. Adds to the atmosphere.
