Dave Hodge Pen-Flipping Incident March 14, 1987 proved to be the final day that Canadian boadcaster Dave Hodge was associated with CBC's Hockey Night In Canada broadcasts. Earlier that same day, CBC had cut away from a crucial match at the Brier (the national men's curling championship--an important event on the sports calendar in Canada) in favor of news programming, irking many Canadians. Later that night on HNIC, CBC did it again--refusing to show the five-minute overtime period between Montreal and Philadelphia to the national audience because it would have preempted the news. As is evident in this clip, Hodge famously couldn't contain his disgust with the network that had employed him for 16 years.

I always had enormous respect for Dave Hodge. After that incident my respect for him increased tenfold. After getting the axe from HNIC Hodge was quickly hired by TSN--an all-sports cable station in Canada--where he remains today.

I like my own posts. I want to see if others like them too.

Personally, I don't like the rating system here. Presently I'd estimate that 95 percent of the posts on this website have five-star ratings. That's ridiculous. It's akin to every kid getting a trophy. Note to Steve: I'd be okay with the rating system here completely vanishing.

At least he didn't flip'em the bird.
