Nick Kypreos is consecutively awful in a row

During the open to the broadcast of the Saskatoon Blades game against the Portland Winterhawks on Sportsnet, Darren Millard just referred to Andrei Makarov as "Andrei Markov", so two minutes later the abysmal Nick Kypreos took care to correct this and enunciated the name carefully, and it felt like he was rubbing Mr. Millard's nose in it.

Of course, a minute after that, Mr. Kypreos, beacon of broadcasting excellence that he is, stalwart of the English language, stated that the Blades' goalie has started "31 consecutive games in a row..."

Tony Reali of ESPN's "Around the Horn" and "Pardon the Interruption" always has fun with this.  Whenever he has the panel discuss any kind of streak, he makes a point of referring to it as, for example, "...31 straight games, consecutively, in a row..."

I wonder if Nick Kypreos gets that joke.
