Monday Headlines

I know everyone is caught up in the wonderful world of jurisprudence (Robert Pickton, Conrad Black, Michael Vick, Barry Bonds, and apparently the Mayor of Ottawa) but here are a few other things to read today...

Sidney Crosby Single-Handedly Cures Western Alienation
See - it was never about being over-looked by the Federal Government, people in Western Canada just wanted to see them some Sidney Crosby. And now that they have I don't think we'll be hearing any more complaints about equalization or resource revenue. No, we'll still be too lost in his dreamy gaze to think of anything else. Except maybe how inappropriate a sign has to be for it to be too inappropriate for a hockey game.

The Predators Stay in Nashville - Much to the Disappointment of People in Nashville
Evidently the Nashville Predators have finally been sold - pending a vote on the lease. I suspect people will be flocking to the Sommet Center (it'll always be the Gaylord Entertainment Center to me) to watch Radek Bonk light the lamp for years to come. What's the over/under on how long it takes before the Predators are up for sale again - 3 years? I'm shocked that people aren't trampling one another to buy tickets for a 10th place hockey team. Wait, what? Nashville is one point ahead of Calgary you say? Oh... snap...

Hockey Headlines More Difficult to Make Up Than One Might Think
To quote Jules Winnfield, "I'm trying real hard..." but this being interested in hockey thing is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. I'm sticking with it but it has not been a cakewalk thus far.

In Actual News...
While I was writing this (phoning it in), Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison.

I would just like to say that Unless you are Mark Messier or Winston Chuchhill, never, ever, under any circumstance should you guarantee a win.
It never seems to turn out very well for these folks and puts their team in a tough spot. Mr. Smith otta be publically flogged then dipped in the Alegheny river. If he only would have been quoted correctly.... Give me a break....


Hey Luke, my bolts pulled one out yesterday.
LT makes me feel like watching NFL football again when he calmly hands the football to the ref after a major score. Something like a pro would do. Always refreshing.

because I am still without tv or internet, i havent seen any highlights of any sports for the past almost 2 weeks, I've been relying on the writers of sportsaslife to keep me filled in on important things.....

Has LT been doing the handoff regularly... I swear the last few times I saw him he did the outstretched arm....kinda like a waiter and then flicked the ball up. If i'm confusing players my bad, but i enjoy the simple handoff, LT..harrison... guys who act like they've been there before and they'll be there again.

Though dont get me worng if a DL gets in their i want to see dance or something...(drawing blank...peter's celebartion- shipopi ??) though some times seeing them run the 40-50 yds is worth it too.

Also agrre that you shouldn't be making guarentees, especially if your a safety ... Qb..rb..dl maybe but safety come on.

Though it wasn't the best move, what do you think about belichick saying " We've played against a lot better safeties than him, I'll tell you that" was that necessary..seems jerky to me, but oh well.

Bill Belichick said something that made him sound like a jerk? There's a first time for everything I suppose.
