    Eddie Olczyk Doing Horse Racing Now For NBC? WTF?

    This is so bizarre. Guy doing Horse Racing... just did an interview.

    I remember this guy doing his first broadcast for hockey.... man the guy sucked.

    How times change.

    this guy is actually very very very good at horseracing betting

    and he's been around the horseracing game all his life

    I think a few years back he won around a million dollars on some superfecta or something

    He's done it a long time. I think he use to own horses too.

    Horse racing is like polo without a puck. Very similar sports in fact.

    I never knew that before. I'm surprised.

    Isn't the NHL game tonight on NBC? National broadcast? I'm surprised he isn't doing the commentating with Doc tonight? Wonder who's filling in?

    I remember playing street hockey at 10 years old... and yelling different players name at the time... we use to call this one dude Eddie Olczyk all the time. Just being dumb. Man... those were the days... getting home from school... playing street hockey from 4PM til dark. Not a care in the world... except playing hockey. Good times.

    I guess I don't watch that much horse racing? Always knew him for his hockey talents. Didn't know he was involved with horse racing?
