SIGH

From the Battle of Ontario. Meet Reason #2,305 why Rogers is really reaching these days:



We have a lot of work to do, ladies. This at least makes me feel better that if I really tried, I too, can be a Sportscaster. At least Rogers did the right thing and disqualified her.

Have at it, ladies

Holy Wow. This is miserable, yet funny, except for that it embarasses people like us forever. The "air quotes" kill me- "hockey fan"- and seriously, they're uniform is too bulky? I think we need to devise a better plan of converting female fans... and be extremely patient.

oh good lord! i feel like we just took ten steps back with that one. i agree paige - we need a new plan...

OMG! That is horrible. I cannot believe that anyone would actually go out and sound that stupid.

This is exactly what give female hockey fans a bad name (PB)!

Her use of the words "fer sure fer sure", "like" and "wicked" really takes me back to 1983. I'm disturbed, but still more disturbed by the other chick interviewing Souray from a few weeks back...

I don't find that funny at all, I find it extremely sad. Being patient isn't going to solve anything, being proactive is. This is the reason why us at HLOG are here: to represent the female fans, giving us a voice that doesn't sound like we're from the valley.

It really boggles the mind, I mean really that Rogers would put somebody on the air and send someone to do an interview when they're clearly not qualified.

It doesn't help anybody, it first of all makes it seem like girls only go to hockey games for the cute guys and don't know a thing about it, and it makes Rogers look really unprofessional. Not to mention, how dumb do you have to be to actually talk about serving alcohol to a minor on television.

Mind boggling!

Wow, this was on a real TV station of some sort? Crazy. Thank God for HLOG!

It was funny when they finally cut away and the play by play guys acted as if this was normal.Canada is kinda weird. MN

I had to stop watching after about 15 seconds. Disgraceful.

Also, you should all write in to express your dissatisfaction.

Jordi said...

I'd love to write in but my letter would go "*bleep* you Rogers *bleep* the *bleep* of my *blepin* TV" and so forth.

Sad. Very sad. Someone needs to bring that 16 year old back to day care.

I decided to suffer through all of it, somehow it managed to defy the odds and get worse as it went along. People should be fired for this.

I wrote an email to Rogers and they have yet to reply. I was disgusted personally and my blog is all gossip and talk of drunkeness.
