Hockey season is back after the Olympic break and I am so happy! Plus the Flyers and the Penguins play back-to-back games in a few weeks, which is awesome because they hate each other and that makes for great hockey. Just to be clear: I loathe the Penguins. Muchly. In particular, I loathe Crosby. Yes, he’s a great player. Yes, he just helped Canada win the gold medal. Yada yada yada. He still a schmuck. If they gave gold medals for diving, he’d hold the record.
Here’s a true story: when someone I just met talks about hockey, I have to ask them what they think of the Penguins to know if I can be friends with them or not. Not even kidding. Had this happen last month and the guy was like “I hate the Penguins and Sidney Crosby is a putz”. Boom! Instant friends! That’s how it works.
