High-sticking

18Mar05

I’ve been checking out Anecdotage.com lately. It’s a fascinating source of celebrity-related anecdotes. I was particularly struck by this entry:

Tom Larscheid: Dressing Room Visit

During a Vancouver Canucks game one night, CKNW color commentator Tom Larscheid made a memorable broadcasting blooper. “I just came back from the Canucks’ dressing room,” he reported, “and Pavel’s groin has never felt better.”

[“Oh that was a great hand job by Skudra!” Larscheid exclaimed on another occasion. “He really helped out Ohlund with that one!”]

I pointed out the second part to a friend. “That’s what you call being a team player,” I said.

“That goes above and beyond what a teammate should be doing,” he responded. “Sticking to hockey terms, that’s offside.”
