Here's our lovely 'Tooth, modeling a Cap to the Capital in purple.
He's wondering when I'll get around to buying yarn in team colors, but he may have to wait a while.
The boys are doing fantastic (8-0), whodathunk, and I'm afraid to look down. Tonight, they play the 'Habs, but unfortunately it's one of those ratzenfratzen "Versus" network only broadcasts, so I'm stuck to audio, unless I can figure out how to watch on the computer.
Thought for the day: Hockey players play, what -- 83 games a year? 83 games of fast skating, board checking, play your guts out 3-4 times a week sporting activity. Football players play 12-14 games a year. I went to a NFL game once (Buffalo Bills) and was bored to tears. It was slow, the fans were more obnoxious and rude than I had ever seen at the Arena for a Sabres game, and I got altitude sickness from where I had to sit in the stadium.
But, they get paid a gazillion dollars a year! And a fair number of them are absolute idiots in their private lives, which soon become public with the stunts (some illegal) that they pull.
Our hockey players, on the other hand, must get any aggressive tendencies out on the ice, as I rarely hear about any of their antics. And in comparison, they get paid peanuts compared to their football counterparts.
Let's see: Hard working skaters v. guys who run a little, block a little, wait for a while ... 83 games v. 12 games ...
It ain't fair, is all I'm saying.
