Seven NHL teams are in hemorrhaging red ink
It's always great to see the city you live in reduced to a cultural stereotype. According to Roy MacGregor in today's Globe & Mail, Senators fans want "bureaucratic hockey -- don't take a chance, stick to a system and keep your head down."
Far be it to say that, "chancing long passes to breaking forwards" wasn't the main reason why people wanted Wade Redden gone. The reason was right up his nose.
Chris Bosh was late arriving at the Raptors game last night because he was stuck in the elevator at his condomium. Big deal. That happened to Vince Carter for the entire 2003-04 season.
Think of Prime Minister Stephen Harper as George Costanza from Seinfeld. His whole life, he's never got to make a great entrance. He's about to make a fine exit, though.
The upshot of this is that Harper will have more time to work on his book about the early history of hockey. (Pot, meet kettle...)
UCLA gave up four defensive touchdowns last night against Arizona State. What are the Detroit Lions going to do to top that next week?
The preceding was worth nothing, but this is worth noting:
- Obviously, one would prefer it be under better circumstances, but friend of the blog Jorge Barrera has been contributing to coverage of the terrible situation in Mumbai.
- There is such a thing as a Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp. Does that include tickets to the Texas Bowl?
- No state football title for the ex-Buffalo Bills wideout, Don Beebe. Clearly, that post on Friday put a hex on his team.
