Ottawa Senators hockey announcers discuss Grindr for some reason

‘I can only imagine what's found on Grindr or who's found on Grindr.’

Ottawa Senators hockey announcers Dean Brown and Gord Wilson were promoting their post-game radio call-in show on TSN1200 Saturday for the game against the Montreal Canadiens when the discussion veered into, of all things, the gay meet-up app Grindr.

Timothy Burke of Deadspin captured the audio, but here is a transcript:

Dean Brown: “Gord and I ... [will take] calls, questions, emails — Tinder, Twitter, Grindr — all the social media stuff. They'll have that going on after the game tonight.”

Gord Wilson: “Grindr?”

Brown: “Well, I don't know what any of them do, so I just mention them all.”

Wilson: “Is Grindr a thing?”

Brown: “I guess so, I don't know what it is though.”

Wilson: “Wow, I can only imagine what's found on Grindr or who's found on Grindr.”

Brown: “I think it probably has something to do with those Mix Masters, those grinder attachments.”

Wilson: “OK, uh-huh”

Brown: “Probably all the things you can grind with one of those machines, cheese, vegetables. We'll get Matt to figure out what that is and let us know what Grindr actually is. I heard it and know it's part of the social media thing. Not that I’m old and not into this.”

Well, now. Why Brown would even mention Tinder and Grindr in the first place is hilarious. As for “Grindr attachments,” they mean this:

My favorite comment on the Deadsin post will resonate with any gay man who has ever used Grindr: “I think Dean knew what Grindr is but didnt wanna disclose bc hes super discreet, 7inches clean/cut, ddf and cant host.”
