Canucks host Blues for Game 2 on THE PEAK, Roger Millions OOPS, shut up Pierre, The Peak's Administrative Professional's Day

The Canucks look to take a 2-0 lead over the Blues tonight with the puck dropping on game two at GM place just after 7pm. As always, catch all the action on 93.3 The Peak FM with our pregame show at 6:30.

From the Canucks website - check out the GAME PREVIEW HERE and the GAME NOTES HERE


Roger Millions of Sportsnet made a little boo-boo recently, uttering a word at the end of taping a stand-up in front of the United Center in Chicago. It's the golden rule of broadcasting, that I learned the HARD way - a long long time ago - that you never say anything that could get you in trouble around a microphone or in front of a camera. You never know when your producer is going to drop the ball or you are going to make a mistake and play the wrong thing or just leave a mic on or something...So the golden rule is just NEVER say anything bad. Roger said something bad. I find it extremely funny, but I also feel for Roger and for whoever is responsible for messing up and letting it get on the air....

Ok, on a much lighter note now - one of my all-time favorites....

Just a 5 second detour here, because he doesn't deserve any more of my typing time than that....Does ANYONE who reads this blog actually LIKE Pierre McGuire doing analysis during the game? I'm not bashing you if that's the case, to each their own, I always say. I'm just curious, that's all. I feel so sorry for Chris Cuthbert, as he is one of the premiere play-by-play guys in the business. They put him with Pierre, and for more than 50% of the actual game, there isn't any PLAY BY PLAY, because Pierre NEVER SHUTS UP. I think I should watch a full game with a stop watch and see how much actual play-by-play announcing happens, compared to Pierre going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on.....Really, I don't have anger issues....I'm actually pretty level headed. But I need to remove all items that ARE NOT bolted down to the floor from my reach if I ever try to stomach watching a game that he's working, because if I didn't, I'd throw them through the TV.

Finally - A suggestion to thank those that REALLY make your business go, but maybe don't get a lot of credit -
This is a super cool idea. It's The Peak's Administrative Professionals Appreciation Luncheon out at the Alberni Golf Club.

The event goes down next Wednesday, April 22nd with the doors opening at 11:30am.

There will be door prizes, live music by Lance Lapointe, and radio personalities. (No idea who that is)

And there will be an outstanding lunch served to get everyone back to work on a full stomach!

If you haven't eaten at the Eagle's Nest Restaurant, you haven't lived! OK - I might be sucking up a tiny-little bit because I want the special fries....but the food is always excellent out there and the service is just as good!

Tickets are just $25.00, available at the Alberni Golf Club and 93.3 The Peak on 3rd Avenue.

It's a perfect way to say THANKS to your valuable support staff by sending them out for lunch!

For more details call THE PEAK at 250-723-2455 or the Alberni Golf Club at 250-723-5422.

Personally I don't have a problem with McGuire, I think he is a good colour guy. Maybe he does talk a bit too much but he also makes good points and sometimes he needs to step in because he is between the benches. He is better than alot of other colour guys such as Ray Ferraro and Greg Millan.
