#2053689 "We respected the other guys a lot more than they do now."

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 28 October 2010 - 08:09 AM

In Mr. Richard's era, it was hockey and not much else to worry about; no other distractions, no other complications. The pay wasn't that good, but that's another topic altogether. You played the game not so much to take someone out but to make sure you didn't lose your position to someone else. Remember, there were basically only 120 positions to be filled in the League. Now, you've got players worrying about their next possible product endorsement deal, their "tweets" and craning their neck to watch a replay on the scoreboard so they can relive that last "big hit". Mr. Richard is correct and Mr. DS Cherry has also echoed this feeling.

I think he still has VISA issues or something.


Doesn't he know that MasterCard® is the "Oficial Card of the NHL"?

After last night's game, they should trade a couple of them for a goalie.

The League should consider moving this team to Calgary; they're dying to have an NHL team.

Maybe it was a Halloween promotion: if you came dressed up as an empty seat, your ticket was half price.


#2049888 Sherlock - PBS's Masterpiece Mystery!

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 21 October 2010 - 07:46 AM

The three-part series Sherlock will be aired on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery, with the first episode starting this Sunday. I have never been a big fan of detective mysteries or the works of Sir AC Doyle. The series has already aired on the cable network channel Showcase in Canada. I watched and I thought it was great. The series brings Holmes into present day, complete with laptop computers and cell phones. The series has been picked up for a second season; they only did three episodes to begin, not knowing what was in the future. The way the third episode ends tells you that. Here's a couple of links, from PBS and Wikipedia that provide background on the series. If you have any interest, check it out. You might like it.
