First off: That was hilarious.
Secondly: That does not belong on tv where kids can see it and emulate it. They have enough problems these days figuring out right from wrong and appropriate from inappropriate. If it was on a show that was rated M (or whatever they call PG-13 or R on tv) that would be fine. You know it's coming. That's why they have the ratings- so people can choose what they want to see and what they want their kids to see.
However, this is hockey, and I don't blame Wisniewski one bit. I blame the tv people. They have multiple camera angles and they choose which ones to air. There's a huge difference between doing something like that on the ice during a game and doing it in an interview or in the direction of a camera.
If the NHL, FCC, IRS, BBQ, WTF or any other arrangement of letters has a problem with it, they should be informing the tv stations and telling whomever is directing it to avoid airing such things.
Really dig that Hossa gave him props though. I remember his fight 2 seasons ago when he wore the Winged Wheel and I felt like he really deserved props for that. He probably was jealous Pav remembered to tie his jersey down and he forgot to
I remember that fight. It was the night of my dad's funeral, and I yelled into the kitchen to my mom that Hossa was fighting and she left all my knitting, southern redneck aunts to run in and watch a hockey fight. Then she went back and was all, "Oh, I just don't like it when they fight. I get so worried that one of them will get hurt. We just got that Hossa boy this year. I really like him..." My aunts thought she was nuts.
I don't think that anyone who has played with or against Datsyuk can help but be in awe of him.
14 goals for the Wings called back. League stands by its officials. Other fans say we're paranoid and have delusions of persecution. The only goal counts because it occurs with less than 20 seconds left in the game and the officials realize they can't let it go to overtime since Babs' glare has already melted the ice to the point where they can barely skate.
