If you are unsure the definition of homerism, watch LeafsTV, you will soon figure it out. RDS has their own special version where they over-zealously fawn over players from the home province. But there’s little disagreement that NESN broadcasters are the biggest cheerleaders in all of the NHL.
It’s a time-honoured tradition for the network going back to the days of Fred Kusick and Derek Sanderson. However, current Boston play-by-play broadcaster Jack Edwards is in a league all his own. His outrageous game calls provide a warped view which is gobbled up without any filter by casual Bruins fans.
Edwards was on another planet when giving his post-Game 7 wrap-up describing the Bruins victory in revolutionary terms. Edwards lauded his idols who triumphed even “when confronted with imperious conceit.”
Watch the rant, and leave your comments.
