One more thing. I rented and watched Score A Hockey Musical for the first time today. I love funny Canadian films that don't take themselves seriously. I laughed a lot. I was entertained by it's kitschy homespun national playfulness! I was also surprised how good George was in the role of  Hockey Arena Announcer. He always seems to put himself down by declaring he is 'not an actor and can only play himself', but he ends up in a lot of Canadian films despite his modesty, and I am convinced he is improving as an actor and he can no longer claim he 'can't really act'. Well done!

Just my opinion.

Interesting guest list. There are some guests that I never thought George would have on.

One question, do you know if Vanilla Ice's interview was pre-taped because at this moment, he is a contestant on the UK series Dancing On Ice, meaning that he would have to learn a new routine for next Sunday's show. If the interview will be taped next week, he probably won't have much time to get ready.

BTW, I'm just curious as to when George will take off for the summer? When is the last week of new episodes?Did George get a reduced number of episodes this season?
