Money cau$e$ problem$ in the NHL

The Powerball jackpot last night brought to mind ­Rush's "The Big Money" on 1985's "Power Windows." Winning tickets for the $579 million Powerball jackpot were bought in Arizona and Missouri.

Dear NHL owners and players, I tried the lockout approach for 6 days and my client in Calgary couriered a voiceover check overnight! Invoices had piled up since your turn to fix your lockout me$$...I would have really enjoyed the game below...

It's okay though NHL...I'll be taking in a great junior hockey game next Wednesday! The WHL actually cares about it's fans...

Black Friday = Black Cars?

Black Friday reminds me I have a black 2002 Saturn SC1 - preceded in 1986 by a black Nissan Pulsar NX. Anyway, enjoy 1985's "Black Cars":

Little black pucks will be around for your enjoyment tonight at Rutland Arena as the Kelowna Chiefs host the Sicamous Eagles at 7 pm. Great memories from the playoffs last year as we beat them in round three!

Nice PR (and PA) if I do say (NOT sing) so myself

Saturday night the Kelowna Chiefs host Creston before a 2-week break on home ice. Let there be hockey! Maybe even one day again in the NHL...

Happy Thanksgiving in the US!

Thanksgiving advice for Americans celebrating Thanksgiving today:

Enjoy the video game references in the movie above and enjoy the football games below today!

I have nine game promos to begin work on for Shaw TV and their WHL hockey broadcasts airing in December and January! Let there be hockey! Maybe even one day again in the NHL...

Buffalo Sports Voices: RJ is number one!

The Buffalo Bills get the national spotlight tonight as the Miami Dolphins visit on Thursday Night Football. Maybe a change in TV announcers will improve the Bills' chances of winning?

The CBS crew of Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts were in the booth the last two Sundays BUT tonight it's Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock.

These broadcast teams finished behind Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth of NBC's Sunday Night Football in Sports Illustrated's list of Best NFL announcing teams. The Worst? Dick Stockton and John Lynch of Fox.
Buffalo broadcasting legend Rick Jeanneret is a Hockey Hall of Famer now! He is this year’s recipient of the Foster Hewitt Award for excellence in broadcasting. Read all about it here. 

Congratulations to the four new players inducted in to the Hall of Fame!
