Boston Bruins' NESN play-by-play man Jack Edwards, who you may remember from such on-air moments as "The 12 Days Of Boston Christmas," Tim Thomas, the best goalie on earth!," "Unanimous Decision: Milan Lucic!" and "GET UP!," has found a way to top himself yet again. What's a homer announcer to do when his team's trailing 5-0 after two periods? Reference Monty Python and the Holy Grail, of course:

If you're one of the few people on the planet who is unaware of Holy Grail, here's the original scene:

An apt analogy, to say the least. Of course, this would have been even better if Edwards had managed to work in that the Bruins were pining for the fjords, or that their skating had become rather silly of late, or that they weren't expecting the Tampa Bay Inquisition, or that they'd received a map of Stalingrad instead of one of St. Petersburg (FL), or that they were all out of goals, or that they were too busy cutting down trees while wearing high heels to play hockey. Still, when most teams fall behind 5-0, it's time to bring out your dead in the announcing booth. That's not the case with Edwards, and his approach of always looking on the bright side of life certainly can produce some entertainment in a rather dull game.
