    It boggles my mind that they actually let Kulka interview people. His interviewing skills are worse than Stu's (scary, that is...), and he tortures the English language something fierce.

    And, as we heard today, neither has any concept of prioritizing the issues in order of importance. Hands up how many out there needed to hear 10 minutes of Kulka describing his dental escapades. Right, that's what I thought.

    Anyone given any consideration to an internet station? podcasts? something to ease the pain?

    Hmm, personally, I can't stand Elliotte Friedman, and they let him do it on National broadcasts.

    Yeah, Vanilliotte is painfully bland.

    They have taken to looping Jason Spezza's indifferent post-game remarks for comic effect. I dig it!

    Way to go fellas!

    At least it's better than the trip to the dentist, followed by the trip to Golf Town. In nauseatingly boring detail.

    How can it be possible that they can't find anybody to fill those spots? Is the pay that poor? I'll be the Algonquin students would do it for credit (and do a better job...)

    Versage is defending Ray Emery's most recent antics now. What a character.

    It's radio so needless to say, the pay isn't all that great. To give you an example, The Late Crew work for free!

    Still not as funny as when Jason York calls the Defense core the Defense Corpse.

    Like all good comedy, it's funny because it's true.

    I thought this might be a good time to resurrect this thread. I just heard Kulka read an email from a listener that was clearly a gag. He was asking if Patrick Roy would hire Mario Tremblay either as a Head Coach or in any other capacity and if Tremblay would be Roy's first hire.

    Kulka observed that these were plausible scenarios and that the email was "astute" and "credible".

    Laughter ensued in the 2005 Ford Focus Wagon.

    We must be practical, after all. At least until the kids can drive themselves. Either way, it's a perfectly good place to laugh at the antics of Kulka! :^^^^:

    Melnyk confirming again that Sens struggle because of a new system, still believing in turnaround (although I think its just to calm the fans down). Murray and Hartsburg probably not going anywhere in the next 2 years.

    It's got to be lip service. He can't be this blind. Sure they may turnaround, but this season is done. I am starting to think more and more that they are buying time until the deadline when they can start making significant changes.

    ...and lip service it was for Hartsburg. Neat to look back at these.

    Would be nice to get MLS in Ottawa. I'd love to catch a game when I'm back in town.

    Or he could say that we are as good as done and that everyone might as well stay home because there's nothing to see at Scotiabank Place. This team and this organization wants to get into the playoffs. Don't kid yourself.

    Wanting to do something and actually doing are two different things though. I want this team to make the playoffs as well, it's just not realistic at this point. Rip off a stretch of 8-2 or something and then there might be a reason to believe.

    Oops... Sarcasm
