Friday RANT...

...seriously, how WOULD you throw out a garbage can? Because someone in our neighbourhood tried to do it the other day, and the garbage man totally didn't get it...

Now for the real rant, on this, the day of the Sens' first game against Buffalo:

This morning I was listening to the Team 1200 and I was surprised by the sexism of one of the DJs. I'm a Sens fan. I watch most of the season--not just playoffs. And I try to go to at least 1 or 2 games if I can. This dweeb is making jokes about how women should bow out during playoffs because it's 'serious hockey' and if they want to make a contribution, they should buy a man a playoff ticket. And also he referred to a woman singing a particular song as 'the chick.' Who the hell is this guy, Bulldog from Frasier?

I didn't think men like him still existed--at least not in Canada. But like a hulking caveman, he...oh, no, wait, that's right...he's not a hulking caveman, is he? He's some clean-shaven desk jockey who sits behind a mic and talks about hockey all day. Yeah, a real gladiator.

That guy you are referring to is Ji Jerome, and yes he is an idiot, and I would like to say its just his radio personality, but from what I hear that is the way he is in real life. He is funny sometimes, but mostly his claim to fame is that he so tight with some of hockey's greats. He was the beer rep in Edmonton when the Oilers were rulers of the cup and Gretzky was ruling the ice. He is so tight with the great one that when canada won the gold medal the first guy Gretzky called , the game was over by only 2 seconds , was jim jerome, the camera is on him standing on the bench jumping up and down ...calling Jim. Apparently he was a good buddy to these guys (gretzky, Messier, Lowe, etc) and since then has become tight with a lot of other sports greats. Anyway bottom lone he knows a lot of people and they call into the show, so he's there to stay....forever.

Come to think of it, I tried to chuck our blue box a few months ago because it was hardly a box anymore...I left it out for about 3 weeks...no luck.
