As if it’s not bad enough that we’re stuck in a division with three Canadian teams, now we’re going to have to hear the Bruins introduced as “The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins” for at least the next 10 months and Tim Thomas introduced as “2011 Vezina and Conn Smythe Trophy Winner Tim Thomas.” Ugh. I think I’d rather see Mike Modano* in a Sabres jersey than have to deal with that bullshit.
Rick Rypien was suspended by the NHL today for 6 games in response to his contact with fans in Minnesota.
Rob Ray was not suspended by the NHL for any games in response to his full-on assault of a fan that ran onto the ice in Quebec in 1992.
My oh my how things have changed.
My primary fantasy football draft begins in 30 minutes.
I’m hoping to win this guy a couple teammates this year.

Answer if you’re interested and give me some way to contact you!
Alessandro Bruschetta’s massive 8-roll crash at 2010 Rally Finland.
Both the driver and co-driver walked away. I love this sport.
The photo says it all. Congratulation Spain for your first World Cup victory.
I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person among us who is rooting for Spain, and I’m completely OK with that. The World Cup isn’t about making friends, it’s about putting your hatred of marine creatures aside and celebrating when the spider-of-the-sea selects your third-favorite team to win the tournament.
Yessssssss! The Dempsey goal is a thing of beauty, what with the spin move and the blown save and oh man it’s perfect!
SO great. Every spring, the NHL puts on an under-appreciated showcase that demonstrates that there is no more entertaing, exciting, nor unpredictable playoff system in all of sports.
This is the best time of year.

(I’m not really a big college basketball fan, but western New Yorkers appreciate any success we can find. ‘Cuse hoops is the only big-time western NY team that’s given us a championship (2003) since the Bills won the AFL championship in 1965, forty-five depressing years ago.
There are countless reasons why I love Fantasty Football so much, but one of my favorites is reading the consistently hilarious blog posts served up daily by the Yahoo! Sports crew. Brad Evans in particular has a knack for creating gut-busting mental images and assigning Berman-esque nicknames, all while dispensing worthy and helpful fantasy data and advice.
