When words fail
"When words fail" by Scott Feschuk
YES, shiver me timbers I couldn't agree more! When I were bein' watchin' th' Montreal-Boston game on th' French channel, I saw the elbow by Kyle McLaren as it happened without any commentary. Just th' sound o' th' crowd gaspin' as Zednik went down. Load the cannons! Down with hockey announcers! Well, except fer analysis in betwixt plays (not just betwixt periods as Feschuk suggests). There be times when former hockey-players analyze a play or compare set plays t' those o' previ'us nights. But aye. Just have th' sounds o' th' game, as if we were actually thar.
