Tronna Sports Network Still Stuck in Center of the Universe

Yesterday TSN unveiled its NHL broadcast schedule for the coming season. For all the talk about CBC favouring the Leafs on HNIC, no one seemed to have had that discussion at TSN. Of the 70 games TSN will show, 17 will feature the Laffs, the most of any Canadian team. Habs follow with 15 appearances, and the rest of you loser Canadian NHL cities have just 10 each. Sigh. We don't even have the energy to complain about this type of shit anymore.

As for what Jennifer Hedger has to do with all of this, well, not much. But Bob McKenzie just ain't as sexy as he used to be.

i used to be all about hedger. now im a holly horton kinda guy

Good eyes Bryan, Holly Horton is a fox. A friend of mine works at TSN and says she's the better looking one in person.

As for the schedule, you guys understand why the Leafs are on the most right? Most fans, most viewers, bigger ratings = more ad revenue. Simple as.

I say we let Holly and Jennifer battle it out in jello to see who's sexiest

@PPP - I certainly undestand why, don't get me wrong. But for fans outside of TO and for fans who like decent hockey it still sucks

Can't fault TSN for following the money ... and the Leafs do bring in the money. Why people continue to watch when they are gawd-awful is what I can't get. I hate hate hate watching the Habs when they are awful. Still love them, but hate watching.

I do however like watching Holly Horton and Jennifer Hedger. But Brian and PPP are right ... Holly is the current clubhouse leader at TSN.

that's a low blow against bob mckenzie. he's looking rather chipper for his age. when i was a young lad i wanted to grow up and be bob mckenzie, the tsn HOCKEY INSIDER.

on a side note, i'm with PPP...holly horton causes me to salivate...

HabsFan29 said...

so much love for Holly I feel I need to defend Jennifer. While Holly has the far superior tits, I still think Jennifer is better looking. But admittedly I have a fetish for women with deep, manly voices

bob said...

They don't call it the Toronto Sports Network for nothing.

I'll go for both ... at the same time if needed.

We hate it too but we watch...and suffer.

She's married to Sean McCormick. Read that sentence again and tell me that your world view isn't rocked.

Who the hell is Sean McCormick?

HabsFan29 said...

@10 - one of the many faceless Sportsnet anchors

HabsFan29 said...

@29 - nameless AND faceless. faceless implies he has no face, jackass

Habsfan10 said...

I try to avoid any entity that pays Mike Toth and Bill Watters money, so I'm not up on my Sportsnet anchors (other than Martine ... I like Martine. And I know Gerry Dobson, since he's the one I see when they get to show their lonely EPL game on Saturday.)

TSN rolling out so many Leaf games is about as shocking as RDS sticking with the Habs. Follow the money people...

As for the ladies, has anyone else noticed that there seems to be enough botox in Hegder's forehead to paralyze an African bull elephant?

HabsFan29 said...

@10 - Martine yes!!!

Now I think we need a 3-way jello match to determine the sexiest

PPP said...

Who the hell is Sean McCormick?

God, I wish I still lived in a world where I didn't know the answer to that question.

And the argument about sexy sports reporters on Canadian television channels begins and ends with Jody Vance!

HabsFan29 said...

@PPP - ooh good one! i always liked her, and she has the sexiest voice.

ok new rule: if you mention a hot Canadian sportscaster, you must provide a link to a photo. here ppp, i've got your back for Jody

eyebleaf said...

what about martine gaillard? i wouldn't find falling asleep on those pillows...

yummy

HabsFan29 said...

@eyebleaf - some quality pillows

She has a weird voice, she is a terrible broadcaster, but boy I love the exotic look of Daru Dhillon

eyebleaf said...

"Double D," as she is so effectionately referred to over at Sportsnet, is pretty cute. and from the motherland to boot...she's up there. but man, there's nothing like a good set of pillows.

i love pillows.

PPP said...

Good looking out 29.

The last time the Canucks came to Toronto my 3 friends and I (not on meth but having been in the cups) got about 150 fans to chant Jody's name as she tried to do the post-game show. Too bad some jerk knocked her up and off of LeafsTV.

Also, Daru = incredible in person. I met her at the NHL awards two years ago and barely kept my jaw off of the floor.

Doogie2K said...

I say we let Hedger and Horton make out to decide who's hotter. I hear Hedger's game, at least.

@doogie2K - you are a GOD, sir, for that video. check out the new post
