Chris Chelios reminisces about a very special coach.:

Well, at least we finally figured out what happened to Jules. This is totally brilliant.

that was good. though Chelios' acting - they could swap in the actor that plays Jim (Tim) from the NBC version of the Office and I don't know if I could have told the difference. Sure, they look different, but that whole "acting + pretending to be doing a documentary but not being wholly convincing" thing is something that Jim-Tim is good at/struggling with.

NBC's version of the Office is total crap. I loved the Brit version, I was hoping Steve Carell wouldn't tank in his first sitcom... God it stinks. Yeah, the hockey video was cool... Englewood!

Very, very funny. Well written, brilliantly performed. Sam Jackson is amazing, only rarely has he ever failed to command the screen (a.k.a. every George Lucas film he disappeared into), I'm curious what the genesis of that sketch was, who wrote and directed it, etc. BTW - sorry, try as I did, and as much as I think Steve Carell is a funny talented guy, the NBC Office is unwatchable after having seen the entire Brit original. Watching the American version makes me wince.
