NBC's strange new NHL promo

I know it's become trendy to complain about NBC's hockey coverage. And I know it has to be a hard job putting those broadcasts together for a national audience that may or may not even be interested in the sport.

But is it me, or does their latest advertising campaign seem a little... odd?

  1. I gotta ask.. do you intentionally put ONE typo in every article? I always notice just one. Your writing is usually fine: spelling, grammar, sentence structure, etc. But there's always just ONE spelling or grammatical error, and I can't help but wonder if it's a fun thing you do on purpose.

  2. What, like Astroboy at the end of an episode?

    No... and also, it drives me insane when I do this.

  5. Strangely enough the Oilers are one of the few Canadian teams that have actually been on NBC (2006 Cup Finals)...

  22. I love this site. You and Bloge rock! After a tough day at work or bobbing apples, you still manage to make me lau, especially the Ottawa and Winnipeg bits. Thanks!

    Btw, where'd you grab that stultifying music? That really suits those informational segments.

  23. Ah yes, hilarious until the Luongo segment..but congrats Canada at barely winning the gold that was designed to be won by you, your roster of superstars really showed everyone how unbelievably not dominant you are at your own sport. Would you like to have an international Basketball, Baseball or Football contest? Soccer? Anything?

  24. Looks like someone's bitter.

    I'm pretty sure that winning the gold means that you are the dominant hockey power. Just throwing that out there. Also, the argument can be made that the US were nothing without Ryan Miller in net.

    Canada won, USA lost. The way that we came to this result isn't important, only the final result is. Move on, please.

  25. Brilliant as usual, but one of your line readings was off. It should have been "No one comes into our country and beats us at our game...twice"
