Incoherent double-threat - veteran windbag Bob Cole with the alarmingly inarticulate Cassie Campbell
Rejean Houle is a nice guy who deserves better than to be remembered as the worst general manager in Montreal Canadiens history, and a modicum of Reggie`s honour has been restored, thanks to Pierre Gauthier. It would have seemed inconceivable 15 years ago, but the Canadiens are actually more of an embarassment today than they were during the ill-fated Houle era. Gauthier is the main culprit, but he's not the only one who's culpable in this calamity. Team president Geoff Molson has been anything but presidential, and the players quit weeks ago. The only actor in the tragedy who gets a pass is Randy Cunneyworth, because whether or not you like his coaching style, Cunneyworth was a hamstrung lame duck from the get-go, having been thrown under the bus in his first week on the job by both Gauthier and Molson for the sake of political expediency...If you're bummed about not being able to watch the Daytona 500 today because you have to go to work or school, be grateful you're not one of the legions of NASCAR fans who actually went to Daytona and didn't make provisions for a rain delay. For anyone who came from beyond driving distance, it's a long way to go and a lot of money to spend to watch it rain for four hours...Gramatically-challenged Hockey Night In Canada dingbat Cassie Campbell was at it again Saturday, reporting that she had "a off-air conversation" with Toronto general manager Brian Burke. I'm sure it were an fascinating chat...Goon was number one at the Canadian box office on its opening weekend, proving once again that Canadians love a good romantic comedy, as long as it's awash in hockey fights, inappropriate sexual innuendo and f-bombs.
