Roger, The Red Light is On - We're Live! Roger!

Last season, things were going so well for SportsNet's Calgary Flames homer announcer, Roger Millions. He was the lead play-by-play man for the Flames and on top of the world. Now just one short year later, he's been relegated to sideline reporting duty and is now brazenly cursing on-air.

(NSFW - or at least turn the volume down for goodness sake)

It's pretty clear to me now that Millions is trying to get Costanza'd off of SportsNet. At the first Flames home playoff game he'll be climbing the netting behind the goal in a flesh-tone body suit.

Your triumphs mean nothing. You all stink. You can sit on it, and rotate! This is Roger Millions. I fear no reprisal. Extension five-one-seven-oh.

H/T: Deadspin

That's one of the funniest clips I've ever seen. I love Mallard's reaction. Deep down he is thinking Millions is so fired...

I think it is because I'm a closet Leafs fan (more of a Wendell Clark fan) that I've frittered away the Sports As Life hockey draft by taking that dog of a Mats Sundin. He is so far behind the play it isn't funny.

Speaking of behind the play, did anybody hear Mike Milbury's comments on Joe Thornton last night? I thought he was right on. Coincidentally, Thornton is another one of my picks.

Give me strength to get through this first round...

I didn't hear what Milbury said - and can't find it online. Paraphrase?

At least with this draft you get to reselect twice. I'm generally not a fan of drafts like that - but at least it's keeps things interesting through at least 3 rounds.

Milbury posed 3 or 4 rhetorical questions to Hrudy and McLean regarding Thornton's non-existent desire to be involved, maybe go to the net and how Big Joe is always smiling and enjoying himself during the regular season but during his annual chokefest, he is no longer in a festive mood.

Hrudy indicated that he strongly suggested that Blake take him out to lunch today and read him the riot act, to begin to demonstrate significant leadership and start giving of himself for the cause or sit down....

Milbury actually swore (Not the Roger Millions word). Said Christ on the air while discussing Thornton's play last night.

It was classic.
