Another Hockey Hijacking

Stanley Cup

Our great national nightmare is over. I look forward to the Islanders once again providing me with the disappointment only they can bring. Sure, Braden Looper blows, but no one blows like Oleg Kvasha blows.

As a testament to just how little anyone cares about hockey, Chris Chelios actually got away with saying this, which was buried at the end of an article this week:

"It's not so much the deal," Chelios said. "It's all about the lies and separating the players from the league and making us look bad because we have to defend ourselves."

Then, using language that is certain to offend, especially given Bettman's Jewish heritage, Chelios was quoted as saying: "That alone should be just cause for him to get the gas after this is all done."

I guess the interview ended before he was able to say how much he looks forward to getting back on the ice, so he can "lynch Jarome Iginla" and "sell Donald Brashear into slavery."
