We are saddened to hear of the death of sportscaster Don Chevrier at the age of 69 this week. The versatile sportscaster counts among his career highlights calling the first-ever Toronto Blue Jays game in 1977, but to many who enjoy watching the Winter Olympics, he was the "Voice of Curling", introducing many Americans to a sport that is very popular in Canada during the last several Olympic games for NBC, teamed with Don Duguid.
We try desperately to steer away from blogs that take excessive liberties with language as I am, after all, a teacher of very small children who should not be exposed to bad language. A bad word once in a while isn't going to kill an otherwise entertaining blog. However, should one of these blogs ever turn into a filth-fest, it will be removed... and it has happened in some cases. Just be warned, fellow bloggers. Language originating from this blog will be always on the safe side. Thanks... --DM
