For some reason, when I hear about curfews and the like, it amazes me that grown men have or need bedtimes.
Is this really worth a suspension? It sounds so high school.
I understand that they are in the playoffs, but you'd think that the players would realize the need to be at the top of their game.
Maybe I'm reading too much of my own life into this, but it seems like they'd know by this point in their lives how much they can and can't drink and how late they can stay up and still get enough sleep.
Not to say that he's bad or anything like that, because he's a very good goalie, but we made him look better than he is.
He would give up rebound after rebound and the Wings would all stand there and think, "Hey. There's the puck. It would have been really cool if someone would have been standing there to take another shot. Is someone going to get that? No? Oh, we're on defense now? Ok, I'll just skate to the other end. Unless my shift is over..."
I use my "Reputation' points at my bank. Every year, in return, they give me a free calendar.
Me too, but they charge 15 points a month in fees that I never agreed to when I signed up for the calendar program, and I have to carry a balance of 1,000,000 points or direct deposit 1,000 a month in order to waive the fee, neither of which is possible with my point status.
Or I could borrow 3.5 billion points that I don't need at an interest rate of 100 points per month and then I would save the 15 points.
I also get phone calls on an almost daily basis offering me their services.
My bf doesn't follow hockey but has been trying for me. He's watched some of the playoffs this year.
He sent me the following texts tonight:
"NHL seems to have a weak commish. And it seems less than professional in many regards compared to NBA, NFL, or Major League Baseball. It is not even marketed as well as the WWF."
"Somehow somebody has left the casual NHL observer with feelings reminiscent of boxing after Holmes beat the piss out of Ali. It's like no one knows who the f*** is the heavyweight champion of the world?"
Basically, he's confused as to what is a penalty and what isn't. I've tried to explain the game, but in watching, he is confused. He has, however, independently come to the conclusion that Crosby is a *****.
He has also discovered that the game itself is pretty cool.
It's been interesting getting perspective from an outsider.
