For those of you who did not know, the NHL is currently on a lockout. This may not be of concern many of you, but it is to Ian White- White is a defenseman for the Detroit Red Wings, so of course it concerns him. Luckily, for all of us, he expressed his concern by saying, “I gotta be honest: I personally think he’s an idiot. Since he’s come in, I think he’s done nothing but damage the game.”
That’s so awesome. It takes some major balls to say something like that, regardless of the multi-thousand dollar fine he will most likely receive. The commissioners of all four major sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) are hated by the fans of their sport; it is a tough job, nothing I would ever want to do. Personally, I think they are all awful. However, they are going to be criticized regardless of how good of a commissioner they are; it is a no-win situation.
BREAKING NEWS!!!! BREAKING NEWS: The #1 and #2 teams in the nation just got taken down. K-State got beaten down 52-24 by Baylor, and Oregon just lost on a OT field goal to Stanford. WOW… this is great. Notre Dame will finally be #1 for the first time since 1993; suck on that, Irish haters.
At the same time, this is terrible. This means Alabama will play in the Championship game, unless a miracle happens and they lose to Georgia in the SEC Championship game. Dammit. A Notre Dame v. Alabama Championship game would probably be ugly, almost as ugly as that LSU v. Alabama game last year that ended with the score of an average baseball game. It would be great to see two power houses in college football history face off, but the offenses would struggle more than a 13-year-old boy stuttering while talking to a cute girl. Let’s just hope that we don’t have to see Nick Saban’s surly face on the sidelines on January 7.
