I don't know if this was ever a topic or was mentioned in one, but I find this to be one of the more funny things I have seen in a while. Mostly because it is so true. And I do hate, "Edzo" and his commentary to boot.

:thumbup: pretty damn funny. more than likely, you'd have a chip on every square by the end of the game. this would also make a good drinking game, except that you'd be bombed by the end of the first period.

i realize that there are a lot of hockey fundamentals that just don't change, and you're getting paid to comment on them. but he, more than just about everyone, seems to repeat the same goddam things over and over and over. we all probably hate him even more because he seems to hate the wings.

Er, did you even watch the intermissions tonight?

He sounded like some of the homers we have around here.

As for repeating stuff, how about Mickey? The stuff Mickey says doesn't even make sense 98% of the time, and he keeps repeating it.

At least Edzo's stuff makes sense.

That said, if Edzo was never on the air again, I'd be pretty happy.

We should come up with our own, Mickey's Bingo Bango. It would have me out of my seat on a Saturday night.

That is a most delightful suggestion! I raise my Ginger Ale to you. (That was to get you started.)

So everyone knows Rod Allen has his own drinking game when he does commentary for Tiger games, but i have yet to find one for Mickey Redmond. I have spent countless hours, (actually just a few minutes) to gather all of Mickey's quotes. So how it goes, is whenever Mickey says one of these quotes, you take a drink, really simple. But, we all know that Mickey has tended to come out of the blue on some really great saying, "He could sell ice cubes to the eskimo's right now." So whenever you deem that one of his quotes deserves a drink, you take a drink.

But here are the most common of Mickey's great quotes.

"Oh Boy"
"Wow"
"Bingo Bango!"
"Holy Jumpin'"
"Put all the hay in the barn and let 'em go at it!"
"This is what the fans came for!"
"This is no place for a nervous person"
"Ginger ales after the game"
"Hey Gang!"
"That was a tic-tac-toe play"
"Like a lumberjack fighting for the last pork chop!"
"He likes it when you call him Fill Poola" (Valtteri Filppula)
"Keep your sticks on the ice kids, good things happen"
"You can head for your parties! This one's over!"
"You go to sleep for a second against these guys -- the Red light's on"
"Holy Mackeral!"
"Well, He's a dandy"
"The lumber is flying!"
"Here comes Houdini" (his nickname for star center Pavel Datsyuk)
"He’ll go in for repairs"
"He blew a tire"
"They got 'em rockin' at the Joe!"
"He got a little lumber on him, and it didn't tickle"
"His eyes were as big as saucer plates"
"He couldn't get the puck in the ocean, even while standing on the pier"
"Now you kids out there, pay attention, you could learn something from the pros"
"You've got to watch the puck or you'll be spitting out Chiclets"
"That was a bang-bang play"
"That type of call just doesn't belong in the game of hockey"
"Now that's a chinsey call"
"They don't know what a penalty is here in San Jose"
"Katie bar the door"
"You only get a few kicks at the cat"
"If I didn't know better, I'd say the ice was slanted"
"He just gave him a BC two-hander"
"It's a bench-clearing Donnybrook"
"Hold it right there, gang!"
"There was no one going to the pop stand!"
"Giving a little Chin Music"
"Water over the bridge, my boy!"
"He's making more turnovers than Betty Crocker!"
"Look out!"
"It's a shooting gallery down there!"
"You could've thrown a blanket over 'em!"
"That was like a pinball game!"
"Like Johnny on the spot!"
"Put that biscuit in the basket"
"His head looks like the top of a Makers Mark bottle"
"He really left his jock strap hangin' off the clock"
"He got beat like a rented mule!"
"You be the judge."
"It's Five O'Clock on a Saturday" (sung when a goal is scored about 5pm on Saturday game)
"He had him out on fort street!"
"He gave em the whatfor..."
"Ok their going at it, not one person sitting at the Joe "
"It's a beautiful thing."
"That puck had eyes"
"Watch out!"

It appears they missed my least favorite Edzo-ism....active stick. Don't ever play a drinking game with Doc & Edzo doing games. Between "active stick" & "waffle boarded", you would be dead of alcohol poisoning before the 1st intermission.

Top row, 4th one over.

And yeah, that video with the Jose Cuervo thing is pretty funny, but he is a gimmick of a commentator.

Took 10 refreshes before I had "active stick" actually come up on a card. Got plenty of "stick on puck", "stick on ice", & "stick on stick" but only one "active stick".

Unfortunately, my computer skills lag just behind my knitting skills.... And I have never knitted. Though, I may be able to do it in AutoCAD/Catia. Just wouldn't know how to post it to this thread. But, for inspiration, I can offer this.

And I raise my ginger ale back to you. And anyone who decides to take this on as a project.

It would be a pretty easy bingo game to make with java...but I don't have any clue as to how to get it on a website after the program is written.

The only thing Mickey repeats are little old-time sayings. They just make it feel like you're hanging out with your grandpa watching the game. He doesn't repeat himself with longer phrases every few minutes, every game, that make him sound like he's reading from a script or stuck with a limited vocabulary.

I hate Edzo.

I'm upset Kaner, Sharpie, and Big Hoss aren't on there. But I am glad you all enjoy it.

Oh yeah and, "Soupy."

Would you say you would be a "happy human?"
