Great White Bites
Drew\'s Thought of the Day - 4\/21\/2013
A painful but necessary part of my job is to listen to a replay of our broadcasts and self critique my performance.

I learned this from my season at Hockey Night In Canada. A few times that season I sat with our Executive Producer and we went over every second of a game and honestly, bluntly reviewed my work.

To add even more clarity, Hockey Night had printed transcripts of every word I said during the game.

After reading the transcripts I was sure that I had no business behind a microphone explaining anything to anybody.

Anyway after listening to the last couple of broadcasts on Comcast Sportsnet, I'm using this Great White Bite to announce that I'm turning over a new leaf.

I'm going to stop complaining about the refs and their calls or lack of calls.

I go from analyst to whining in a split second. I get distracted and emotional and it's bad TV.

I will still hate some of the calls and you will know I hate the blown calls because of what all of our Mom's once told us.

" If you can't say anything nice about someone then don't say anything at all."
