Soccer too. It is going to ruin American competitiveness in these sports.

Case in point: a local bond issue just passed here to build 12 new (badly needed) soccer fields in a big complex. Instead of just...leveling a field and putting down grass, they're spending over $40 million on the project. How do they justify that expense? Tournaments! Tournaments will bring in tons of money!

So yeah, if you can't take a 4 day weekend a couple times a month, get hotel/food/etc in another city while your probably-untalented kid plays a sport with other probably-untalented kids, you're out of the game.

I hate it, if you can't tell.

It's also an effective way to exclude undesirables from participating.

To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours.

It shouldn't be that much of a surprise that [white] athletes tend to be Republican, or at least vote that way. They're wealthy [and likely grew up at least upper-middle class] so.... tax cuts, duh. And there's the meathead type who seem to be more culturally conservative.

I always figured the NHL would be left of MLB and NFL because of the Canadians and Europeans.

I got bad news for you about most Canadians (and most Europeans, I imagine).

Missed it entirely. What was that start time?


Anyway, the Great Anthem Non-scandal Curse has finally been lifted and the Stars can continue on their winning way. Definitely.

Iíve never hated a coach as much as I hate Ralph Krueger right now. What a loving idiot.

Donít know about Europe, but Canadian NHLers are mostly middle-class+ white dudes so while Canada in general is left of the US, the NHL population draws mainly from the conservative end of the pool.

I was working in NJ this week, and my hotel was just down the road from the Flyers practice rink. I sent a picture to my 3-year old and he replied: "the Flyers are dogshit garbage"

That story is 97% true.

Ha, my wife and I got married in Tahoe a couple years too early it seems. This would have been amazing:

STATELINE, Nev. -- Brianna and Austyn Rowland smiled for their wedding photographer moments after tying the knot at a Lake Tahoe resort on Sunday. Snow-capped mountains filled the horizon. The sun glistened on the water.

And Gritty, the Philadelphia Flyers' ubiquitous orange mascot, gleefully held the bride's veil.

Hey Sid Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster, and the theory of Atlantis?

I thought the deal with Subban was he's still top 4 quality but he's being played like he's still a #1.

Also paid like one. But I haven't checked his laser maps recently
