Top 10 Video Special - Paul Steigerwald-isms

Welcome to Down Goes Avery's 13th edition of the Top 10 Video Specials.  This edition will take a look at some of Pittsburgh Penguins announcer Paul Steigerwald (and Bob Errey)'s top idiotic, biased at and times weird comments (and yes, sometimes he is right).  Why?  Well if you missed it earlier today, Yahoo! Puck Daddy writer and Twitter sensation Ryan Lambert (@twolinepass) went at it with Paul's brother and radio host John Steigerwald.  If you have half an hour, it might be worth your time.  If not, just know that John basically asked Ryan for examples of Paul Steigerwald being biased, because he couldn't think of any.  Luckily for them, I did some YouTube hunting, and here's what I found (as dumb as Paul is at times, it was actually considerably difficult to find 10 clips).

#10 - A little bit of 'Flower'

Steigerwald and Errey go Fleury-happy.

#9 - Matt Cooke, part 1

The Pens announcers tend to defend Cooke.

#8 - Matt Cooke, part 2

You know, more of the same.

#7 - Craig Adams dumps Alfredsson

Craig Adams plays the role of Matt Cooke.

#6 - "Whack and Hack"

Bob Errey must think he's funny.

#5 - "The Islanders are stupid," part 1

Steigerwald and Errey rip on the Islanders.

#4 - "The Islanders are stupud," part 2

This one's a bit more colorful.

#3 - Losing your mind

I guess they weren't playing baseball.

#2 - The Hobey Baker...winner

Paul Steigerwald decided it's cool to make fun of plane crashes.

#1 - Country music culture

I can't tell if Paul is just being stupid or mocking Nashville.

So there you have, John.  I hope you all enjoyed the Top 10 Special.  Remember to send me your Top 10 Special suggestions for future countdowns!  Thanks for watching.
