Versus Taps Soto For Ice-Level Duty

From our buddy Steve Lepore over at The NHL Arena Program comes news that Lindsey Soto will be providing ice-level reporting for Versus for five games this coming season (and that Joe B. will be doing 22 Versus games, which likely means plenty of Smokin' Al on Caps games for us).

Back to Soto, an apparent fan favorite, I don't see any hockey experience on her resume, but I'm guessing that her knowledge of the game is not exactly why she was hired...


Oh, and Christine Simpson fans fear not - she's still scheduled for 23 Versus games.

Yeah, she's hot.

But I'm concerned about our local TV team situation. It's great that Joe B. is a rising star broadcaster and all, but it's looking more like we're going to have a new regular play-by-play guy real soon. That's not good news.

I hate sideline reporters, even though that one has a great set of knockers. Still not enough to interrupt a broadcast to shoehorn her into some air time.

I got no problems with a new PBP guy in the booth, although Joe B is good.

Man, how come all I get is Pierre McGuire? I don't think I could be less attracted if he were wearing a Flyers sweater.

Less Emrick and Olczyk is always good news. Less Joe B. is not. We've been seeing less and less of Joe over the last couple seasons. Eventually, like pepper commented, we'll lose him completely.

What's wrong with her face? It's been botox/scalpelized into oddness.

I wouldn't mind "tapping" Soto myself. ;-)

It took six comments for someone to hit that softball... well done, Mac.

So following the Flyers game the other night, here is my question:

Am I the only one who feels better with Bourque out there than with Semin or Fleischmann?
