This has to be the lightest traffic I’ve ever witnessed here. I’m not complaining. I understand it was Mother’s Day. I understand it’s now been a month since your boys went home. I also understand there hasn’t been much news whatsoever from the Rangers.
So I should have expected this summer’s slowdown to come earlier than last summer’s.
And it isn’t as if I’m bringing much to the table lately. I’ve been very busy, and I apologize. Hope to pick it up a bit soon.
I like to watch hockey, and I like the other sports, too. So I admit I’ve been flipping the channels during these playoffs, which continue to be mostly fabulous.
I don’t think I’ve ever intentionally turned off a game just because Cliche-machine Beninati is doing it, but I have put on the radio when it’s involved the Rangers. However, a 3-0 game with Beninati made my switch to the Yankees-Red Sox (which was also a blowout) a no-brainer. Goodbye Versus.
I have to admit, though, that through all the other series, I have had no problem whatsoever with the various play-by-play guys, and I have even taken a new shining to some of the color analysts like Darryl Reaugh (sp?) and especially Billy Jaffe. I still love Eddie “tremendously tremendous” Olczyk when he’s without his between-the-benches “Edzo” guy.
One more question for Versus: Is the Stanley Cup playoffs really a good time to have tryouts for a studio job?
