65 Reasons I Love A.M.O.: #19 “Why you quit?”

August 14, 2008 at 11:21 am | Posted in 65 Reasons I Love A.M.O. | 1 Comment

Watching Odd Jobs perked me right up, so I decided to put up this reason.

There’s this one guy who works for the NHL Network (and I can’t for the life of me remember his name).  He used to coach the Capitals, many moons ago, and he interviews Ovie all the time.  This wouldn’t be a problem, except that every freaking time he asks him why he was born when he was/drafted when he was/not a player when he was coaching.  In one interview, Alex decided to find out why he wasn’t coaching any more, and he asked why he quit.  Actually, his exact words were “Why you quit?”

Listen approximately eight seconds in

I think it’s sweet how he tries to convince him to come back as an assistant or something, in that “English as a second language” way of his.

I have listened to him say “Why you quit” ad nauseam, thanks to Corinne, who thinks that is the funniest thing he has ever said.  Sabres fans have WWMD, Pens fans have WWGRD, and she and I have WYQ.
