You Suck, NHL
hella tight. too bad i couldn't watch them.
Last night the Sharks played what will likely have been one of the most exciting games of the season with their 5-4, double OT win over the Nashville Predators. I'm in Boston now, so, understandably, I don't really get to watch the Sharks. I'm fine with that, I've really only started to truly appreciate hockey being in New England, so I've grown more fond of the college game than I have the NHL. I'm not afraid to admit that if the Sharks weren't very good I'd hardly lose any sleep over it. What can I say, (professional) hockey isn't baseball or basketball, and the Sharks aren't the A's or the Warriors, nor will they ever be.
But missing last night's game drew my ire for a particular reason.
Because, you know, it was a freaking playoff game. Dear NHL, if you ever want to expand your product and draw in fans, next time make sure that when the team playing in the fourth largest media market in the country is playing in a double overtime playoff game, you can at least give us a live look in, on Versus.
Hugs and Kisses,
-Fuck you Scott Hartnell. Admittedly, I don't know all that much about the NHL, and I have no idea who you are, except as the prick who landed a knee to knee hit on Jonathan Cheechoo and probably wrecked him for the playoffs (which, of course, could very well wreck the Sharks' playoffs.) So fuck you very much.
-No. I will not say anything about the Golden State Warriors and their chase for the playoffs after 12 straight years missing them. If, IF, they're successful, then you can expect a big long sexxy post where I wax poetically on this long awaited accomplishment.
-ERA's of Oakland A's Starters:
Dan Haren- 0.69
Rich Harden- 1.38
Joe Blanton- 3.97
Joe Kennedy- 1.64 (Remember when it was like 21 in Spring Training? lol@springtraining)
Chad Gaudin- 2.53
Oakland A's Record: 4-6.
Dear Billy Beane,
-Lastly, the Northeastern baseball team has won 5 of their last 6 and are now 13-9 (8-6 CAA). I just like to update myself in this space on my school's athletic happenings from time to time.
