The NHL, alongside providing me with fleeting moments of great joy, also provides me with innumerable topics to bitch about: Mario Lemieux's vaunted legacy (he was a dirty douche), any team south of D.C. with the exception of St. Louis, Gary Bettman, and anything and everything about the Versus broadcasts. One thing that drives me completely bonkers about the NHL is the lack of accountability for dirty hits. Guys like Matt Cooke flying around the ice and doucheing the careers of far better players makes me want to stab someone through the heart. That's not to say I'm not a fan of violence (have you met me?), but because I am a fan of justice, revenge, and the American Way.
God I love being the guy who advocates fighting....it's so.......barbaric!
