Time To Retire the Ric Flair "Wooooo"

Another Bruins blogger out there (Days of Y'Orr) suggested replacing Ric Flair's "Woooooo" with Fred Cusick. I think this is a great idea. Aren't you guys getting a little tired of it at this point? I know I'm getting tired of explaining to people that it is a recording of Ric Flair and not the PA man.

While they're at it, here are some more requests regarding in-Garden entertainment:

1. Put the axe to Kelly Malone's little vignettes (go back to voiceover work only - no cutting to Kelly on Garden HDX). I picture her in contract negotiations with the people at Bruins Entertainment asking for more facetime to get her "image" out there.
2. Show more replays and fewer idiots who come to the game strictly to get on Garden HDX (how many times did I text the Mayor this season asking what just happened on a play because all the Garden was showing was the latest douchebag who dressed up like Greenman?).
3. Show more replays and less train-conductor-hat-wearing, mustachioed, dancing pedophile (disclaimer - I do not have proof that he is a pedophile).  Once per game is more than enough.  It's tradition at this point that you see him once a game, but leave it at that.
4. Show more replays and less pounding-on-my-chest-special-ed-helmet guy.

Anyways - it would be great to have an original idea for a goal celebration at the Garden or something that at least says Boston Bruins. My favorite is Buffalo's. They replay Rick Jeanneret's call of the goal immediately after the horn. This is classy. This is not some wrestler erupting with a mating call. Maybe we could get Randy "Macho Man" Savage's "Ohhhhh Yeeaaahhhh" next.

Anyways, go read their post. They make a good point.
