it drives me crazy when the commentators call the wrong man (ie: harry cole referring to simon gagné as "jarome iginla" numerous times in the 06 olympics), but obviously this happens all the time and is totally forgiveable over the course of two-thousand-some-odd NHL & international games per year.
what is completely unforgiveable is the commentators referring to the czech republic as "czechoslovakia." it happened at least twice during today's matchup v. canada in the WHC, and made me irate both times. i don't care how busy, dazed or unfocussed you are about what you're yammering on about, 14 years after its' "peaceful split", if you can't figure it out, you should get a new fucking job. you never hear these chumps slip up with other former-communist countries ---nobody ever says, "ovechkin with a huge goal for the soviet union" or "italy needs a win over east germany to advance." but the numbskulls just can't put together that there are two distinct and seperate countries (maybe they should visit ??).
that's my rant.
it was nice to see roman "the chickmagnet" cechmanek is still annoying as ever.
