They Get Away With Everything In Canada

Tuesday, October 30, 2007


I'll stay away from the whole health care issue when talking about Canada today and just speak to what I know. Announcing. I'm pretty sure in America the term "shoot their wad" isn't acceptable in the world of Broadcasting.....

We assume Toronto Argonauts commentator Adrion Smith knows what the term means. If so, maybe he doesn't understand that the term is inappropriate. Three times during the radio broadcast of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers-Argos game last Saturday, Smith expressed concern that the Argos may "shoot their wad."
I hope at least a few of you can figure out the picture at the top.

That's not what it means. Its a military term that is related to firing a rifle... not that kind, a real rifle...

I believe Lute Olson made a similar comment to that in a postgame press conference a couple years ago, and I almost fell off my couch.

Jackie McMullen wrote that in a column two weeks ago, as well. And yeah, Lute Olson definitely said that in a press conference recently. Definitely a proud moment for UA alums.
