People In Canada Are Clever

Saturday, January 05, 2008

I know it's just the International Bowl but I've been thoroughly enjoying this team on the call. You've got the two Canadians in Saunders and Flutie and Jesse Palmer and he might be one of the best analysts I've heard in awhile.

Anyway, here's the highlight of the game (and no it's not Ray Rice's 260 and 4 TDs through 3 quarters). Wait for it...Waaaait for it...

I'd love to hear the producer on that one....."Okay, Camera 2 to the Go Rutgers sign.....wait ABORT! ABORT!!!!"



I didn't know there was anyone that smart in the state of New Jersey.

Doug Flutie is an American, Palmer and Saunders are the Canadians.

Actually, AA, Flutie was born in Md. I didn't know that until I looked him up for some reason or another on Wikipedia a couple weeks ago.

Not only are Palmer and Saunders Canadians, but Stacey Dales (sidelines) is apparently also Canadian. I totally agree this group provided an enjoyable telecast - they sounded like they were having a bunch of fun doing the game and it came across to those watching it. Nice mix of "goofing off" and actual reporting. Anytime you can slip a reference to "The Dick Van Dyke Show" into a college football game and make it sound intelligent, you've done a good job.

I am from the Torontos, and honestly nobody gives a shit about this American College Football. Also, the 31000+ attendence is inflated, and why the fk was this game at 12pm?

Too bad because Jesse Palmer, Doug Flutie and that ex-toronto bastard John Saunders are actually media friendly.

the game was at noon because of a little thing called the NFL playoffs.

I guess if you were in charge of the network you would have started the game later and enjoyed the 6 people that would have chosen to watch a meaningless college football game over an NFL playoff game. and then next week you would have enjoyed flipping burgers at mcdonalds

When I heard this game was being played in Canada, I really hoped it would be played with Canadian football rules...Ball State with four men moving toward the line of scrimmage at the snap...That's good television!

I don't know what warranted the jab, but please don't take out your work frustrations on me - it's best to leave work at work.

A 1 o'clock start would have been more suitable, for a meaningful bowl college game. And besides, if 6 people are gonna watch anyways it doesn't matter what time the game should have started- I don't know if America knows this but their are colleges in Canada too. I don't understand why they want to play here without any Canadian colleges involved. I was actually offered free tickets, but I slept in, and watched the playoffs at the grill.
