A Mediocre Post
On Sunday, the Habs finally got the Crosby Monkey off their backs and avoided a season sweep at the hands (flippers? Water wings??) of the Penguins. That gave them four wins in their nasty five 5-games-in-7-days stretch. Not bad.
Kevin Gibson's Monday Hockey Report:
"With [Humpty Dumpty] being sold, my favourite snacking past time is coming to an end, I'm going to have to retire from potato chip eating. Which is a shame because I'm in my prime."
I love this guy's columns. It's like some internet backwater where he can say whatever he wants because no one is paying attention. Kinda like Sisu Hockey.
On Tuesday: Huet says, "Satan, get thee out!"
Wednesday: Get ready to roll your eyes at Bucci's latest.
Is there anything more mainstream than saying, "Man, I'm so totally NOT mainstream!" Gimme a friggin' break. You work for ESPN. The letters from readers section is better than usual, where there is some discussion on hockey parenting. He offers up this interesting tidbit:
"Ed Jovanovski did not start playing hockey until he was 11."
Today (Thursday): Hockeydirt celebrates the Habs' season saviour. Nice.
"...if I could be any NHL player, I'd want to be Alexander Ovechkin. Young, a hot-shot, talented, and with a hoard of delirious male groupies falling in my path, offering to copulate my passes. That would be the life."Sorry, I just can't think of a comment. No comment would do it justice.
Pet peeve/Grammar Nazi rant OTD: The Chicago Blackhawks are not mired in mediocrity. Mediocre implies average or middling. In the NHL, that's playoff calibre. The Blackhawks are mired in craptitude, not mediocrity.
