Lol. The old "Detroit sucks because it's poor" argument again eh? Lame. Tampa's entire economy revolves around bilking retirees out of the social security checks. Not sure I'd double down on economic pride if I were them.
Not to mention they had to restrict ticket sales out of fear that wings fans would out number bolt fans on their home ice
Actually Yzerman always had a sense of humor. He was one of the biggest smartasses on the Wings, but he kept it pretty well out of the public. You didn't really hear stories until later in his career, and especially after he retired.
Though there is the infamous moment of him taunting Domi from the bench with the heavyweight belt gesture after Domi's rematch with Probert.
Toews just seems like he has zero personality.
Agreed. I don't know why they call Toews Captain Serious, they *should* call him Captain Cardboard.
The last person I'd trust to handle my multi-million dollar estate is my mother too. She's a secretary. No matter how much I love her that doesn't make her capable of handling millions of dollars in assets intelligently or responsibly. I know this. Jack Johnson, however, doesn't. That's why he's an idiot.
NOTE TO ALL PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES:
Hire professionals to take care of your money. You wouldn't let your parents repair your car, fill your cavities, or install your water heater. Why would you let them handle your millions of dollars in wealth?
my Dads really good with cars.
And he helped put in my water heater.
And he pulled a bunch of my baby teeth.
And thus ends my long time dream of cheering wildly as Todd Bertuzzi is handed the Stanley Cup first after it is presented to Zetterberg (and cheering all the more wildly knowing that the rest of the hockey world is HATING what they're seeing).
