As I was getting ready for work this morning, I was watching ESPN. It’s a part of my morning routine. Much to my surprise, they actually covered the Pens/Caps game, despite the overwhelming Super Bowl coverage. As they were rolling to the highlights, the genius anchor has this wonderful quote:
And now to Penguins/Capitals, which features the two best in the game, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. This may as well be the Super Bowl for the NHL.
Really? Really Lloyd? The Super Bowl for the NHL? Yes, they are great players, but it’s a freaking regular season game, and there are 28 other teams in the NHL. Maybe this is why hockey isn’t on ESPN, because the anchors are this retarded. I mean really, how stupid do you have to be to say that? The NHL has playoffs too. Just because football’s biggest game was last night, doesn’t mean hockey ended it’s season. They are two completely different sports. Schmuck.
I can’t believe it’s come to this for the NHL. Good job Gary. Idiot.
