Far be it to give any nimrod out there is a blog obsession or relentless pursuit going on with David Frost.
It is just sporting for a seasoned ass-talker to note that Frost is "whole heartily" (his word) getting on the web with his Hockey God Online website ("hockey's most knowledgeable source"), as detailed by the Ottawa Citizen.
This is not a cavalier approach: If Frost is home maintaining a blog that he promises he will be "updated daily," then he's not out in public, which is where he tends to run into problems, although of course with him it is always someone else who's to blame, like the media.
Frosty is off to a pretty auspicious first week. Some men who were just acquitted on sexual exploitation charges would be lying low, but Frost has already put out the call to women with low self-esteem, offering them a "time to shine as the Hockey God Online’s Hockey Hottie of the month. We want you to email us a photo of your hottie wearing your favorite team sweater!"
The knowledgeable source has gone out on a limb by proclaiming the Stanley Cup-winning Mike Babcock is one of the league best "coach's" has a team that "lives and breaths the game."
Jarome Iginla, we are told from the insider, has a skill set can't be "found any where else." Frost is also promising Pro-Line picks. Today, he counselled people to take the New York Rangers at home over Florida "since they are use to" early games. That nugget was promptly deleted after the Panthers won 4-0.
Anyway, godspeed to David Frost with his new hobby. There is no use in getting worked up over this latest development. Like I said, anything is better for all concerned than him being in a position of influence over young people ever again.
