Enough! Shea Weber worship is already out of hand, two weeks into season

Shut the fuck up about Shea Weber already. … What’s that? I have to write more words? Doesn’t that one sentence make my point? You’re telling me I have to explain myself? My editors are such sticklers for making my point clearly using what some people call facts and evidence. Fine. So, as I was […]

Millennial Divide: Why Snapchat makes no sense

Am I old? You bet. Do I have what one would consider a masterful understanding of the things young people love? Not even close. I don’t think I’ll ever comprehend the box office success of Pitch Perfect 2 or young men’s penchants towards lengthy beards or dying their hair white. I am old. I’m not […]

NHL Mailbag: Trashing Taylor Hall, best beat writers, and broken leg intangibles

Ladies and gentlemen, we have reached the best part of the offseason! It’s when a foreign player slags another player in his native language, then retracts/adjusts/denies it right away!
