Ummmmm...the person who posted that video on YouTube actually posted it BECAUSE they thought it was embarrassing and funny.

Many (not all) of the people who've commented seem to agree.

The other announcer practically made fun of him, at which time JR starts saying that those are tears of joy and repeats that several times trying to defer the lameness of it all.

What it tells me is that some folks are WAY too touchy-feely about a game of MEN.

Really.....I don't suppose you happened to watch any of the NHL commercials during game showing those big, tough, phyical, intimidating men so weeping with such emotion after they won the Cup that they couldn't find words to describe their emotions or even speak ? Wake up.....it may be a game played by men but they're not robots....they have emotions and it doesn't make them any less a man (except in your eyes) because they are overcome with those emotions at the peak of an emotional conquest or experience.

You're now comparing the actual PLAYERS who just finished a long and grueling war of a season with winning the prize they've worked a lifetime for with an ex-player who was on TV as a color commentator.

Again....the OTHER announcer was also an ex-player who never touched the Cup, and he all but laughs at him. Why not write to NBC and abuse him?

But then again, you just want to argue for the sake of arguing..... so knock yourself out on that by yourself.

Its much more fun to watch you being abused on here and being told you have no credibility by none other than the moderator who appears to be a dyed in the wool, knowledgeable unbiased hockey fan. Give up on this point....theres NO ONE who agrees with you and I'm done beating a dead horse in this thread too.

LOL...and you actually AGREED with ME that "credibility" and what someone thinks is funny or embarrassing have nothing in common at all...

What is funny to one person may not be to another. Does that make one person more or less credible than the next? No.

Much like musical taste, what's funny is a subjective thing.
