reviewed New York Yankees. March 09
New York Yankees
You know them and you HATE them. Well, maybe you don't hate them; maybe you love them. I'm a fan, and therefore, I love them, but the great laws of statistics and probability say you hate them. It's one …
reviewed Manchester United F.C.. January 04
posted in Awesomeness
Manchester United F.C.
What say, for a minute, that you, an American sports fan, have mastered every ridiculous quirk and nuance carried by all three - or four of you include the NHL - big leagues. You're looking for something …
reviewed A League of Their Own. May 02, 2013
A League of Their Own
With all the historical baseball films out there this is one of the best!  During WW II there was a dearth of "male" players to fill the minor league rosters.  As a result there was …
reviewed Minnesota Wild. April 24, 2013
Minnesota Wild
Team placement really confuses me sometimes. I mean, how does a small market get a team back after losing a first team because it wasn't doing well? How the hell is the Minnesota Wild created when there's …
reviewed Winnipeg Jets. April 20, 2013
Winnipeg Jets
Now, let me see if I have this right, just so I know I'm being completely clear on the subject: Hockey team to Atlanta called the Flames. Flames out of Atlanta to Calgary. Hockey team to Winnipeg …
reviewed Nashville Predators. April 18, 2013
Nashville Predators
The Nashville Predators have at least one thing no other team can claim: Their head coach, Barry Trotz, is currently the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL. He was hired in 1997, just a couple of weeks …
reviewed Florida Panthers. April 17, 2013
Florida Panthers
There's not very much to say about the Florida Panthers. They've mostly been living an existence that's as unfortunate as it is inauspicious. This was after they began with more promise than most expansion …
reviewed Tampa Bay Lightning. April 16, 2013
Tampa Bay Lightning
There's a very popular pastime in the northern United States, especially along the Rust Belt: Moving to Florida! So naturally, if you're the NHL and you're trying your hand at southern expansion, the …
reviewed Ottawa Senators. April 14, 2013
Ottawa Senators
Sometimes, it's heartening to know the NHL has a vast reservoir of intelligence capable of taking care of obvious little things. Like their You Can Play campaign right now. Or the fact that it knew enough …
reviewed Anaheim Ducks. April 13, 2013
Anaheim Ducks
With the exceptions of the lockouts, what we have here is the most public of the NHL's many embarrassments. It comes off as nothing but a desperate ploy for attention.    Here's what …
reviewed San Jose Sharks. April 11, 2013
San Jose Sharks
The first wave of NHL expansions ran from 1967 to 1974. Then there was the merger with the WHA in 1979. Yeah, that was an awful lot of upheaval for a league which survived with all of six teams starting …
reviewed Washington Capitals. April 10, 2013
Washington Capitals
Washington. Oh, Washington. You look at a place like this and you think to yourself, can't these guys do ANYTHING right? Look at Congress, look at the city's crime rate during the 90's, look at the general …
reviewed New Jersey Devils. April 09, 2013
New Jersey Devils
Usually in sports, stories of underdog teams rising to their potential make us all warm and fuzzy inside. Then there's the New Jersey Devils of the NHL. The NHL owes a number of things to the Devils, …
reviewed Colorado Avalanche. April 04, 2013
Colorado Avalanche
You know, I'm now officially curious as to how it is these former WHA teams followed the same rough pattern: The Winnipeg Jets, Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordiques, and Edmonton Oilers all started out …
reviewed Carolina Hurricanes. April 03, 2013
Carolina Hurricanes
You know, there are times when I feel like we arrogant northern hockey fans have got it all wrong about this whole hockey in the south thing started by Gary Bettman. Mostly I think a lot of the Carolina …
reviewed Edmonton Oilers. March 28, 2013
Edmonton Oilers
The big cities usually dominate the professional sports markets. If there's a smaller town lucky enough to be blessed with a major league team, it's a given the team is just a bone thrown to appease people …
reviewed Calgary Flames. March 27, 2013
Calgary Flames
Fire and ice. A greater contrast between two elements doesn't exist. It's difficult to fathom any situation where the two of them might be peanut butter and jelly, two great flavors that terse great together. …
reviewed New York Islanders. March 26, 2013
New York Islanders
Among the inescapable facts of life are death, taxes, and New York City sports fans having a serious sense of entitlement. Maybe the New York Islanders can be a little bit of an explanation for that, …
reviewed Vancouver Canucks. March 24, 2013
Vancouver Canucks
You know the Vancouver Canucks. Oh, you KNOW the Vancouver Canucks. You've been hearing about them everywhere. Robin from How I Met Your Mother is a huge fan. (As is Cobie Smulders, the actress who plays …
reviewed Phoenix Coyotes. March 23, 2013
Phoenix Coyotes
I'm going to take a brief moment right now to do something I don't ordinarily do in my hockey-related musings: Give NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman some of the props he deserves. No, I don't mean that in …
reviewed Philadelphia Flyers. March 21, 2013
Philadelphia Flyers
Yeah, we all know those famous stories revolving around Philadelphia fandom. Aren't these the fans that booed Santa Claus some 40-odd years ago? The guys who cheered when Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael …
reviewed Pittsburgh Penguins. March 20, 2013
Pittsburgh Penguins
All fans of the NHL know that the history of the Pittsburgh Penguins can be nicely and evenly divvied up into two separate eras: The Before Era and The After Era. The turning point is a certain Mario …
reviewed Los Angeles Kings. March 06, 2013
Los Angeles Kings
There are three NHL teams in California. Yes, I know the thought is pretty weird, but then again, so is the state of California, or at least that's how the reputation goes. Amidst the hockey hoopla in …
reviewed Dallas Stars. March 02, 2013
Dallas Stars
I can clearly remember when the Stars were given to Dallas. It was the first time I ever started giving thought to NHL politics, because I was questioning the logic behind it. Hockey in Texas. It seemed …
reviewed Detroit Red Wings. February 28, 2013
Detroit Red Wings
Poor Detroit is on the receiving end of a lot of bad things these days. It's the most impoverished city in the country. It's the most violent city in the country. The housing crisis there is so nasty …
