Chris Simon cheap shot: (via YouTube). The clothesline with the stick to Hollweg's face put the Rangers on the PP, allowing them to capitalize and score the GW goal. There has been talk on sports radio this morning that they would like to see Simon suspended into next year.
USA First Team to Reveal Hockey Olympians : No big surprises except maybe Roenick's saltiness.
Mystique of Original 6 Fading.: This story is slanted due to fact it only speaks of the attendance figures of Blackhawk games against Original teams. I can only think that is becasue Wirtz has absolutely ruined this team during his ownership and could care less about putting a quality product on the ice. Hawks attendance sucks regardless of who their opponent is. I am wondering if this is a league wide phenomenom or simply Hawks fans not showing up? Do the fans in the other 5 Original cities show up in droves? I think maybe this author is generalizing because of the plight of Chicago's hockey team but I can't speak for the other cities.
From National Hero to draft dodger.: I just thought this tidbit was interesting. I didn't realize Vlade was still a Serb citizen.
Bears center breaks fellow offensive lineman's jaw.: How does this bode for team cohesiveness? And how friggin' hard did Olin pop him? I knew when they reported Sunday that Fred broke his jaw from a spill at home that something just didn't ring right.
WS Ratings suck! Thank you, FOX!: Ouch! Was FOX partly to blame for the abyssmal ratings or the two teams competing? You would think the Series would be more compelling considering the history of the two teams, but I guess not.
Pats' Bruschi on Bills game: 'I'd like to get out there': I'm not a huge fan of Bruschi, but good luck to him. I have a brother-in-law who had a more severe stroke and it was painful watching a young man (35 at the time) in incredible shape crapping his pants and talking like a child.
