Radio Station "54 Rock" is apparently playing a spoof on the TSN ("The Sports Network" Canadian Pay-TV station) commercial for hockey, back to back with the real commercial. The announcers for both of these use deadly serious deep voices: ------------------------------- "Game day, the Montreal Forum, 5:28 PM. Naslund sits silently staring into space. Chelios too. He will as always be the very last to don his uniform. In one corner, Corson meticulously retapes his stick: for the third time. In another, two linemates share a joke. No one speaks of what will happen in two hours; no one needs to. In the dressing room hangs a sign: 'To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.' These are the Montreal Canadiens, and tonight they will play the only way they know how to play, the only way the Montreal Canadiens have ever played: for keeps. NHL hockey on TSN: real drama, real life, real TV. The Sports Network. If you've got it, watch it. If you don't, get it." "Game day, Maple Leaf Gardens, 7:28 PM. Kordic sits silently staring at the space between Ballard's ears. Salming too. He will as always be the very last to remember where he left his uniform. In one corner, Iafrate breaks his stick over Leeman's head: for the third time. In another, two linemates share a case of beer. No one speaks of what will happen in two minutes, or two hours, or even two weeks; no one wants to know. In the dressing room hangs a sign: 'Exit. No Smoking.' These are the Toronto Maple Leafs and tonight they will play the only way they know how to play, the only way the Toronto Maple Leafs have ever played: for laughs. NHL hockey in Toronto: real comedy, real fun, real pathetic. If you can stand it, watch it. If you can't, forget it."
