Andrew Duncan: Jim Carr



  • Jim Carr : Hi, Jim Carr again. Denis, I know that some in our audience don't know the finer points of hockey. Could you tell them, for example, what is icing?

    Denis Lemieux : Well, um, icing happen when the puck come down, bang you know, before the other guys you know. Nobody there, you know. My arm go comme ça then the game stop then start up.

    Jim Carr : I see. What is high-sticking?

    Denis Lemieux : High-sticking happen when the guy take the stick, you know, and he go like that

    [high-sticks Jim Carr] 

    Denis Lemieux : you know. You don't do that.

    Jim Carr : You don't do that?

    Denis Lemieux : Oh no, never, never.

    Jim Carr : Why not?

    Denis Lemieux : Against the rules. You know, you're stupid when you do that. Just some English pig with no brains, you know.

    Jim Carr : Uh, what is slashing?

    Denis Lemieux : Slashing is um, like that

    [demonstrates on Jim Carr] 

    Denis Lemieux : you know.

    Jim Carr : Mm-hmm. And there's a penalty for that?

    Denis Lemieux : Yeah and for the trip also, you know like that


    Denis Lemieux : . And for hook like this


    Denis Lemieux : . And for spear, you know, like that.


    Denis Lemieux : You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free.

  • Reggie Dunlop : I am personally placing a hundred-dollar bounty on the head of Tim McCracken. He's the head coach and chief punk on that Syracuse team.

    Jim Carr : A bounty?

    Reggie Dunlop : Yeah, a hundred bucks of my own money for the first of my guys who really nails that creep.

  • Jim Carr : Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

  • Jim Carr : Here's a name for you nostalgia fans: Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown. I'll never forget an exclusive interview in which Swamptown revealed that he calls his hockey stick the "Big Tomahawk," and he usually refers to the opposing players as "the little scalps".

  • Jim Carr : Andre "Poodle" Lussier, defense. Andre, as you know, has been living in semi-seclusion in Northern Quebec ever since the unfortunate Denny Pratt tragedy.

    Morris Wanchuk : Not Poodle.

    Jim Carr : And from Mile 40, Saskatchewan, where he now runs a donut shop, number 10, former penalty-minute record holder for the years 1960 to 1968 inclusive, Gilmore Tuttle.

  • Jim Carr : Ned, what's a young man of your background still doing playing professional hockey?

    Ned Braden : I hate my father.

    Jim Carr : Is that right?

    Ned Braden : That's what I said, isn't it?

  • Jim Carr : Well I may be bald, but at least I'm not chickenshit like you!
