Tuesday Morning Sports Media Fun


Cold enough for you????

Did you happen to see Ken Campbell of the Hockey News take on a twitter fan last night???

Thanks to a reader for pointing it out… pretty funny stuff. Good on Campbell for apologizing at the end…

Campbell’s first tweet : “Darnell Nurse was just named player of the game for Canada. Good player but WTF?”
@marghi99 response: “anyone questioning Darnell nurse as player the game should perhaps learn the game!”
KC: “Not questioning him as a player, you moron. Just saying Domi should have been player of game.”
@marghi99: “wow a moron. How professional of you.”
@marghi99: “Perhaps time to dump my subscription to your magazine. As a moron I can’t read anyway,”
KC: “If you can’t read, that would probably be a good idea. Or perhaps, have someone read it to you.”
@marghi99: “wow you are so professional.”
@marghi99: “they just lost a long term subscriber.”
KC: “I apologize to @marghi99.”

I spoke to Ken this am and he told me that he regretted using “that word”, that he did apologize and that from what he can see the apology was accepted and hopefully this is “behind me”.

Still with Twitter, did you happen to catch George Stroumboulopoulos tweet after the game?:

“Congrats to @GMillerTSN @tsnjamesduthie @TSNBobMcKenzie @TSNRyanRishaug @rayferrarotsn and the @TSN crew on a great tournament. #canada”

One word- CLASS

That followed Glen Healey who was on the Fan also praising the TSN coverage. Nice to see/hear.

If you only watch one video today make this one:

The Leafs just fired Randy Carlyle so I will let you get back to that- should be a fun night of writing…..

Well they’ve done a nice job of shifting the deck chairs, what’s that big white thing ahead?

“Strombo = class”

Really? I think its more of a case of keeping his options open.

TSN (TV) had a good morning. Coming off the heels of the World Junior Hockey Tourney which was spectacular, they had Macko and Cauz doing their show live on TSN4 providing extensive coverage on the Carlyle firing.

Antonio, I would suggest there are no options to keep open for Strombo at TSN given his performance on Rogers.

Dennis Beyak and Dave Reid also did great work during the World Juniors. Very little drop off from the a-team in my opinion.

Mike S, I heard that feed go from live Macko and Cauz to re-run Leafs Lunch and back again without any explanation whatsoever. They might have acknowledged it to the listening audience rather than act like it didn’t happen. If you recall, they were interviewing Bill Watters and then switch occured, so for a minute I thought that someone said something verboten, and the Starship MLSE fired their phasers at the CHUM attenae.

I think that it’s been acknowledged on this blog before that the 1050 signal is weak in areas and cuts in and out, but I don’t if this would be related to that.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
