If you're a fan of a hard-luck sports franchise, you get completely crazy (see: all New York sports teams) or develop a darned good sense of humor. Lately, the Isles fans are going the wrong way... witness this spectacular nitwittery in the (400+ and counting) comments, most of them ready to toss GM Garth Snow under the Zamboni for getting a low second-round pick for Andy Sutton.
Dudes... the guy is turning 36 next year, makes $3 million, and will probably leave as a free agent after the year. Did you expect that Sid Crosby was coming back the other way? I hate that so many of my fellow fans have decided to turn into typical "Louie from the Bronx" WFAN caller types. Get down off the ledge, guys, woncha?
As an antidote I hang out over at Down Goes Brown. The draft advertisement post alone is worth your repeated clickage. ("Customers who viewed this item also viewed: Pylon, Turnstile, Wasted Money..." HAHAHAHAHAHA)
And BTW, Isles Point Blank is also on the Pantheon, and Chris Botta, who is Lord of the IPB, is very very good. No beef with him (even if he does spike my comments on occasion!). It's my fellow combox jockeys who need to get back on their meds.
update and BWAHAHAHAHA - from Greg Wyshynski (Puck Daddy), the Milbury Trade Scale. Never has mental scarring from epic failure been this amusing!
