Burrows, Biting and Breastfeeding

There’s a title I don’t want to write ever again. But that’s where we’re at, thanks to the illustrious Jack Edwards and his unfortunate access to a radio signal.

So, yes, Alex Burrows wasn’t suspended and it seems like everyone’s pretty ticked about it.  (Message received. Gross miscarriage of justice, etc etc.)  But that’s cool. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. And at least no one’s written me anything as insane as in the audio below, kindly provided by Matt Yoder at Awful Announcing.

I’ll let him set it up:

This audio from Jack addresses Vancouver’s Alex Burrows biting the hand of Boston’s Patrice Bergeron.  Surprisingly, Burrows was not suspended by the NHL.  Thankfully though, the entire incident has given us this video of Jack Torrance… err… I mean Edwards, providing a poignant social commentary on the matter complete with some kind of circus music.  By the way, congrats if you spun the Jack Edwards Wheel of Insanity and landed on Breastfeeding.

Gotta love the homer.  Wonder what Jack had to say about Lucic after game 6.

That’s “homerism”? Oh, man, I think that’s about 9 steps past “homer” and three steps into “crazy as ass.”  smile

That’s…wow. Just wow. All of a sudden, Mickey Redmond in the middle of a rant about ticky-tack penalties sounds like a doctoral thesis on the lower boundaries of Newtonian physics versus quantum mechanics.

I love Edwards.  He’s crazy as a loon, but entertaining as all get-out.

Not as bizarre as the time he compared the Montreal Canadians to the Redcoats.

Or the time he laughed for five minutes after someone on Philly got injured on a boarding.

I do think Bolland’s comment about Burrows ‘just biting and hair pulling like the little girl he is (or whatever he said)’ were dead-on though.

Not like most little girls I know. My 2-year-old niece goes right for the punch in the nose (and she punches HARD, too! Feisty kid with a temper). :D

But regarding the video… yeah, he’s a few tacos short of a combo platter. Weird-ass stuff right there.
