Bruins Announcer Gives Nutty Post Game Speech

There I go using one of those Yahoo common noun titles. But for those of you who don't know Jack Edwards, he is the Boston Bruins' TV announcer. He is also the owner of some of the best microgasms on the planet… and this awkward post-game rant about royalty, the Boston tea party, and, I think, the Bruins.

For realsies for a sec… his calls are excellent and something to look forward to in this series.

Now would also be a good time to remind you about the Bruins fans who threw condoms at our very own Adam Gonsiewskiburgerwithcheese last year.

    Did I miss the sarcasm? Please tell me you are joking. Around the league this guy is considered to be one of the biggest homers and worst play callers in the NHL. All he cares about is using tired catchphrases every he chance he gets and thinks Boston is the center of the universe like some deranged Red Sox fan.

    Seriously you are complementing Jack Edwards? Stop covering the Flyers.

  2. No doubt he’s crazy. But I THOROUGHLY enjoy his ridiculous calls. Perhaps “excellent” was the wrong word. Entertaining, ridiculous may have been better.

  3. “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

  4. sooo the current canadians can’t take credit for being considered hockey royalty because it wasn’t them who did it, but there predecessors… yet at the same time he compares the bruins to the revolutionaries of the boston tea party? it makes sense if you don’t think about it.

  5. That was a wacky rant, but I’ll say this about it. At least he never uttered “for realsies” from his twerpy-dweeby-nasally voice.
    Speaking of which, he sounds eerily like a certain blog-boy I’ve heard before:

    Well, maybe not in tone, but in his inflection and his affect.
    Keep trying, Kyle-Boy.

  6. Was that rant supposed to be about hockey?
    And was it inspired by barely surviving a 7-Game series with the Montreal Midgets???

    Is that what you’re craving after your fro-froo drink—that “growler of Flying Fish Summer Ale”?
