*Hard to take your eyes off of Pierre McGuire. If you do there is a good chance this will happen.

*Drunk of the euphoria of a somewhat busy deadline day the TSN crew seems to have descended into chaos with all on air talent speaking, yelling and laughing all at once. Say… some of them were in Vancouver, I would be worried if I parked anywhere near there.
Well this is about it for me for the day. time to go enjoy some Canada Day festivities around the hill.
