#NHLOL


The holidays really are a fantastic time, aren't they? A truly wondrous time filled with top 5 ranked college basketball teams, world beating football teams and fantasy teams primed to pull in that sweet playoff casheesh. Oh, is that not how it is for everyone? Now that's unfortunate. But at least we can all join together in getting joy by laughing at the NHL. Whether they eventually come to an agreement and start to play games, or preferably NOT, those Teds have proven yet again that they're really only good at the following things: Screwing their fans, making me cackle at their incompetence, and doing irreparable damage to their sport...

And to you "loyal" fans? I say only this. You're suckers. Not insulting your intelligence. We can all be suckers. Now, you just need to choose whether you're going to stop being a sucker, or accept the fact that you're a glutton for punishment. Nobody will want to hear your bitching when the league has more labor strife, or 3 teams had to be shut down. Because that's just par for the course for those of us that aren't blinded by our love of the game. It would be like telling us that you were shocked that when you flipped a coin it came up heads instead of tails. Except in this instance, where it's a double sided Canadian coin being flipped by a greasy haired owner with a substantial financial interest in the flip's outcome...

Thankfully, they don't have the holidays in Canada. Or is that Thanksgiving? I can never remember. I do know they have "Boxing Day", which isn't about boxing at all. But that's about where my non-Bryan Adams related Canadian knowledge begins and ends. And I know they don't have college basketball, either. Which is what you should be watching right now whenever there isn't football...

So, yeah. Canada sucks. And if that wasn't the intended point of this rambling, then so be it...

Catch you Friday, friends. Will pick some winners together and continue to laugh at the less fortunate. Should be good times...
