I keep saying to myself “You’ve only got 6 minutes left in this game on YouTube,(Pens v. Canes, 10/14/06) just FINISH IT” and then finding something else that distracts me into pausing it. (And don’t get me started on how the Google Video copy of it skips right from Army laying the hurt on Letowski at 11:20 in the first to the beginning of the second period.)
What paused me this time was a need to ask this question:
I get why women are never NHL coaches, because they haven’t played in the NHL (and therefore have no idea what they’re doing. I understand the flawed logic, AND can give you a way to fix that, but I digress.) How come all hockey ANNOUNCERS are male? Granted, some of them are hired as past NHL players to do commentary, but for every one of those, there’s another dude who’s employed by the network just to jabber on aimlessly and rattle off numbers as fast as he can. Would it be that shocking to hear a female voice doing that? I mean, if the guys can say stuff about JStaal’s “shifty hips” I don’t think anything a female says could be taken much wronger in OR out of context.

Also, just call it a groin pull. Enough of this “lower body injury” stuff. If you pulled something near your manly bits, you pulled something near your manly bits. We all know you have them, so just talk about them like you’re not ashamed.
