It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Bill Clement. He has now suffered the indignity of being fired from the same job by two different networks. According to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The latest announcement came this week when Versus hired Bill Patrick to work with analysts Keith Jones and Brian Engblom. NBC earlier unveiled plans to have its studio show be at the site of that week’s game. Pierre McGuire, already a game analyst, will host.

Ouch. That has to sting a little bit. But buck up, big guy! Things like this happen all the time in this cutthroat business. Before you know it, you’ll be back on your feet with an even better job. Just think of the people working in the media that have gone through nearly the same thing and have not only survived, but have actually prospered! That reminds me, Bill. I just heard Joe Theismann needs a fourth guy for his bowling team.

So, if you see Bill Clement out there simply trying to make it through another day in this cruel, cruel world, give him a slap on the back and some words of encouragement. But do not be surprised if Bill looks a little something like this:

Coming up next, Reasons Why I Haven’t Killed Myself, and Why I’m Running Out of Them. But first, the weather, with Ollie Williams. What’s the weather gonna be like Ollie?

(Site Note: MYFO’s one and only LeNoceur will have much more about this development in further detail in the very near future.)

  1. WELCOME TO THE NHL ON NBC. I’M PIERRE MAGUIRE, AND OUR COVERAGE IS GOING TO BE MONSTER!!! WATCH ME ANALYZE PLAYS USING TERMINOLOGY THE AVERAGE U.S. HOCKEY FAN WILL TOTALLY NOT UNDERSTAND. IS ANYONE EVEN WATCHING? HOW DO I GET BACK ON TSN?

    My head hurts already.

  2. HabsFan29: Never thought I’d say this, but thank Christ for Eliot Friedman. And now I feel dirty.

  3. The question is when will Bill Clement come to the CBC and work for hockey night in Canada, it’s only a matter of time.

    May I suggest completely replacing the old senile man Bob Cole, and while you are at it, replace Harry Neale as well.

  4. Maguire’s studio co-host will be Mike Milbury. At least until he fires himself.

  5. Bill Clement does Flyers Color Commentary when Keith Jones goes to VS every so often.
