Interviewer: You're down by 1 goal, what was the problem after the first 20mins?
Player: Uh, well, uh, we were a little slow off the start, uh, they beat us to the puck, uh, and we just gotta, uh, pick it up a bit ya'know?
What's the key to getting back in the game?
Uh, well, uh, we gotta come out a little faster, uh, we gotta beat em to the puck, uh, and we just gotta pick it up a bit ya'know?
What's it going to take to win tonight?
Uh, well, uh, we gotta pick it up, uh, beat them to the puck, uh, play well as a team, uh, and uh, we just gotta get the puck in the net.
Wow! Put the puck in the net? What a concept. I hope the other team wasn't listening to that strategy!
I actually feel bad about writing this one. Most of these guys are
probably good people. They just aint public speakers. Let them do what they're good at and leave the commentating to the commentators. Or.... maybe we should let the commentators play during the breaks. Come to think of it, I'd love to watch Harry Neil and Bob Cole on the ice.
In the new world, athletes won't speak publicly, unless they request to.Or Bob Cole and Harry Neale agree to play between periods.
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
