What a year it was. With the universe gripped by pandemicity, and close human interaction kyboshed entirely, the world had to learn new forms of communication on the fly. As the world tried to keep their 6 feet apart, Zoom stocks skyrocketed, and two-dimensional faces became more of the norm.
With this new form of day-to-day communication came the obvious technological struggles. Whether Wi-Fi signals waned in and out of connectivity, or Mute buttons went unpressed, no one was safe from bandwidth’s betrayal.
Not even superstar athletes.
Indeed, living in this new age of journalistic coverage and communication presented a number of struggles, for both media (especially) and to the athletes (a little less so). Nay, not even NHLers could bypass the information superhighway’s nefarious twists and turns.
Telecommunication took its toll on all of us at one time or another this past season. Whether you’re Avs superstar Nathan MacKinnon, or lowly media-types like myself, we all had our fair share of blunders (as you’ll see, yours truly makes an appearance on the gag reel on more than one occasion). And lucky for all of us, they’re recorded, so we can all go back and share a screen-shared laugh.
So I took it upon myself to compile a few of the top bloopers, blunders and otherwise funny moments from this past season on Avs Zoom. Enjoy.
Without further adieu, I present to you Avs Zoom Bloopers: The Best of the 2020-21 Season…
