Some Yuletide irony ...

No word of lie, TSN's Pierre McGuire says of broadcasting the world junior hockey championship, "The biggest thing is not to be a cheerleader." Of course, he's never heard himself broadcast:



Thankfully, most can withstand Miller and McGuire turning the sturm und drang up to 11 for the next week and a half. After all, we're Canadians, we're just better at some things.

Banking. AMIRITE????

In all seriousness, we rule at hockey.

Seriously, complain about the big banks, but they have so saved our ass.

Actually, Pierre McGuire is actually the highlight of The Team 1200 TGOR morning show...which is a telling statement about that program.
McGuire, who usually talks to the morning trio from some airport terminal somewhere stateside after a game the night before, sounds calm and rather subdued when talking, a stark contrast to his frantic, bombastic persona on TSN broadcasts.
Certainly his 15-25 minute segment on TGOR is a welcome relief from the imbecilic rantings of Jim Jerome or the smarmy Steve Warne.
