    Re: Dear Jack,

    At least he doesnt say:
    "CLEARED.. but not out."
    "AAND A DRIIIIVEE."
    "And he knifes the puck...(to wherever)"
    "And (whomever) cancels out (whomever)"

    ...A thousand times a game.
    Ugh, I hate the announcer who shall not be named.

    Half boards and kickplate.

    Down the river.

    Describing shots that are wide as "great saves" by anybody.

    PS, I don't know what year it started, but I'd like to cement-shoe whomever came up with the brilliant goaltending analysis now know as being "square to the shooter."

    Is the opposite facing the Klondike Bar vendor?  Do goalies make it to the NHL by being "not really facing the shooter?"

    Ditto.

    Even "down the river" doesn't bother me half as much as that nitwit from NBC/Versus who's decided that every stolen puck was "knifed away" from the other player--whatever the F that even remotely means.

    If I have to nit-pick about Jack (who is the BEST at actual play-by-play in regards to being on top of the action and not 4 seconds behind like old Fred used to be), it would be the description of Boychuk's slap shot as a "Johnny Rocket."

    That's a little disturbing.

    Other than that--keep on truckin', Edwards.

    I think he's great.  These two phrases have become the forefront of his play call so far this season.  The rest of the stuff listed above, Johnny Rocket notwithstanding, is fine with me.

    "Whips it out" and "reach around" yesterday had me choking...oh and spooning
    "The Jets have taken off"! made me taste vomit in the back of my throat. He's trying too hard to be cute. Just call the darned play.

    Emerick is losing it.  After the Wings scored their first goal he said "and Boston goes up by one!"  I thought wow, I must be losing it I swear Detroit just scored - which of course they did.

    At least last game he didn't call Peverly Seguin as he's done every game before that.  I think he sees the 9 and assumes it's Seguin.

    I don't like Jack, but I have to give him credit for correcting himself and he's not shy about it.

    Re: Dear Jack,


    I have a really wild and novel idea.

    Get ready, I think out of the box so I might be hard to follow so get your thinking caps on.

    I honestly haven't heard anouncers use these phrases;

    Rather than "knifes the puck"
    why not "pokes the puck"?
    or
    "poke checks"
    which is actually what it is or what happened.

    Rather than "explodes off his stick"
    why not "pops off his stick"
    which is actually what it is.

    Rather than trying to be so over the top, it would be novel if an anouncer were to try to use the adjectives which most closely resemble what happened.

    Jack could remain just as colorful as he is, but instead of all bright colors all the time, adding some pastels here and there would make the artwork all the more attractive.
