You ask me this every day Howard. It’s like water boarding or Chinese water torture until I crack. I’m not going to crack, I want to win every game. So it does get frustrating when you don’t win. We should send you to Guantanamo, we’d solve all the issues that we had. You would drive some of these guys nuts. I would interview these poor guys, the prisoners, after you’ve interrogated them and see what they have to say. It would be fun.

This should at least give us all a little smile in a trying time. Ron Wilson compares Howard Berger's presence at media scrums as torture.

The Rangers' Sean Avery won a settlement in his libel case against Toronto radio reporter Howard Berger following mediation earlier this month, Slap Shots has learned. The suit was brought in the aftermath of the pregame incident in Toronto on Nov. 10, 2007, after which Berger alleged that Avery had made comments to Jason Blake relating to the Leaf winger's previously diagnosed cancer. Terms of the settlement are confidential. Avery has at least one more pending suit relating to the incident.

Does this make anyone else smile?

DUSTIN from Mississauga, Ont. writes: "Howard, I heard you say something recently about the fact you don’t listen to your radio station or watch games on TV all the time, even though you work for the biggest all-sports station in the country. If that’s true, it surprises me." You know what, Dustin? A lot of people would be surprised by such remarks. But, you heard me correctly. The best way to try and explain it is this: When a lawyer comes home after a long day in court, I’m almost certain that he [or she] doesn’t rush to the television for syndicated re-runs of "Perry Mason" or "Law and Order". When a neurosurgeon comes home after conducting a 10-hour operation, he likely isn’t counting the minutes until "E-R" starts.

The latest proof that Working Class Howard is actually a high-functioning dumbass. The real comparison is of a television critic running around slamming a show on radio and in print without ever watching any shows.

Leaf fanatics constantly bitch about the likes of Damien Cox and Steve Simmons, only to make them the most widely-read columnists in the city. My FAN-590 colleague, Bob McCown, isn’t the host of the No. 1-ranked sports-radio show in the country because he ignores the Maple Leafs. No person on the air so blatantly reminds listeners how abysmal the hockey club is, or how "stupid" its fans are. You folks hate his guts for bearing the truth, but you can’t get enough of him – he so adroitly pushes your buttons. The same Leaf zealots that call me a rotten bastard in e-mails are the first to wonder where my blog is if I skip a day. So, if it’s true that the consistently lousy performance of the Leafs is partly due to "negative" media coverage, it is that way solely because of the demand for such material. A demand that is insatiable and endless.

No way I am leading you to Working Class Howard's blog especially since he's on a SIX WEEK VACATION (coincidentally, so is Damien Cox...hmmm...that seems convenient) so glove tap to DGB for reading his site not one but twice!
