The Crapitals, Rashard's Opinions, Disco Dan

It shouldn't be a big surprise that the Craps are struggling in the 2nd Round of the NHL playoffs. They've simply run out of gas. After all, no team has ever won 2 Stanley Cups in the same calendar year, like Washington is trying to do in 2011. Hats off to BBQ Bruce and Boyz for winning their 1st Stanley Cup on January 1st at Heinz Field. But coming back from an 0-3 deficit against Tampa Bay this series will be a tall task. They should be proud to raise their Winter Classic banner at the end of the year right next to last year's Presidents' Trophy banner.

btw...Vinny's Game 2 OT goal celebration was pretty hilarious. Remind you of anyone else who likes to celebrate goals in this building? Yeah...eff that guy.


The word around some camps is that Rashard Mendenhall is entitled to his opinions. The Steeler RB who fumbled away the Super Bowl has a few opinions that he wants you to hear, such as:
  • Playing in the NFL is the equivalent of slavery.
  • If your girl doesn't perform orally, she deserves what she gets.
  • Osama Bin Laden might have been a cool cat if you only heard his side.
Sure, Mendenhall is entitled to his opinions...just like everyone else is entitled to theirs.  I side with the majority of people whose opinion on Mendenhall is he's a dumb ass. My other opinion is that everyone who had signed up for his Twitter page is now dumber for having read his Tweets.


And finally...

Big congrats to Disco Dan Bylsma for being nominated for the Jack Adams award, as the NHL's coach of the year. Playing with a short deck the entire year while amassing 106 points...well, we don't think it's close. But who knows? Nashville's Barry Trotz, one of the other nominees, probably won't get it because he has a huge head and resembles a turtle. Vancouver's Alain Vigneault is the 3rd candidate, and we're betting Bylsma gets snubbed for him. Blame Canada :)

As Mario Lemieux once said about his hockey accomplishments: they don't vote on Stanley Cups or scoring titles. Or something like that.

Disco buries it...

You forgot Mendenhall's disputing the World Trade Center story, saying it was a demolition.
