McCown edging Mckenzie.

Cole a very, very distant 4th. Iconic voice, great history, wonderful ‘moments in time’. But I was done 4 years ago: no preparation, sneaks in from Nfld. on game day to get a couple of quotes, and that’s all that passes for preparation. Mis-pronounciations galore. It’s an indictment on Canada’s inventory of play-by-play talent that Bob Cole is still going in his mid-eighties. Enough already.

Listening to Bob Cole is like listening to someone have a stroke and a heart attack at once.

How he’s even allowed near a microphone anymore defies logic.

I saw Mont’s comment above and didn’t know whether it was sarcastic or not. Against all instincts, as it was a Shannon/Cox edition, I did listen on podcast.

I would recommend it – everyone stayed on track and there was some good analysis. A pleasant surprise – hope it continues.

Just a quick change of subject, if that is alright.

In the “I’m glad this is an anonymous post” category…

1) I liked the Olympics.

2) Except for one or two albums, and bless Gord Downie, I don’t like The Tragically Hip. Thanks for sharing that Peter Mansbridge digs them – nothing cooler than that.

Did anyone catch Ron MacLean’s intro to the Hip concert? He was in Rio of course and it was classic MacLean, which reminded me why I have come to dislike him. A fast paced mish mash of who was standing next to him, morphing into Kingston and Don Cherry, with a seemingly abrupt turn to hockey and Jayna Hefford. It was mind numbingly bizarre. Even my wife asked me what the heck is he talking about.

Typical CBC…
I’m not a fan of the hip… actually, preferred the Northern Pikes. But I regress, wouldn’t it have made perfect sense to have Strombo. instead of Ron MacLean?

Just saying…

@steve – – I thought the same thing too! About Strombo anyway… Would have been nice to see him get back on TV and be right in his wheel house. He could have introduced them from the stage which might have made a better intro.

I get what they were trying to do but it was obvious that the athletes had nothing to contribute when it came to talking about the hip which is probably why MacLean spent more time talking to them about being from Kingston than he did the band. It felt more like that old disco dance party show on TVO.
