[QUOTE]Executive Desk Toys Not to sound smart or anything, lest I be attacked for not being cool enough for hockey like ya know, but the exec desk toy is a physics concept. Do a search for "Newton's Cradle" and you'll understand. Juding from Jack's reference to scientific expressions, I'd say he studied physics. Instead of making fun of him for not being dumb, or not being quite as dumb as most hockey fans, and before deciding to wear your lack of command of the English language on your sleeves by making fun of terms that exist even though you've never heard them, you should look them up. You'll learn something and then you can sound smart too! ps. Making fun of people's teeth sounds like real smart too though!! Eeeehaww!!

He's a public figure and I have first amendment right to make fun of him in any way I choose. I am sure you are aware of this right, (see Miller v California 1973 and of course Hustler Magazine v Falwell 1988).
As for Mr. Edwards intellectual prowess and vocabulary, I am certain that "fisticability" is not a word (he was referring to Mr. Thornton's pugilistic skills).
Given that his face appears frequently on television in front of our children, don't you think he should be setting a good dental hygiene example for them? Isn't he encouraging poor dental hygiene amongst the Bruins youth? The medical community has recognized that poor dental hygiene can cause other much more serious health problems.
I was not the one who mentioned the desk toy. I am familiar with the phrases he uses, but he has invented some of them himself. He has used popular phrases, but out of their familiar context to describe certain actions in the hockey game. I assume this is to amuse the listener, but I find it annoying as several other viewers have noted.
To summarize, I say Edwards suxx bad!
