The Olympics is over, I’m like… hungover on the final hockey game.
Canada won the second match up, fair and square, I’m not going to piss and moan and do that “the better team didn’t win” crap because I hate that stuff. BUT the thing that has really gotten under my skin is the media whipping out the knee pads and getting on sydney crosby. Is he a talented hockey player? Sure. But the media are declaring him the best hockey player since Gretzky… I don’t think that’s a good bet yeah (LOL).
First off the MVP of the Olympic Hockey run is Ryan Miller. His play was nothing short of brilliant. BRILLIANT. He anchored a bunch of depth players, guys that on average make 3 million dollar per head less than team Canada to the Gold medal game and it took these guys all the way to overtime to finally get at him.
Am I being a homer? Maybe a little, but keep in mind I like team Canada (minus Crosby); Stevie Y, Oh Captain My Captain… Mike Babcock, my teams coach. These guys belong to us too, we’re all “South Detroiters” here, we are extremely intermeshed with Canada here in South Eastern Michigan. In any event, congrats to Canada for their Gold on home soil and congrats to the USA hockey squad, fetching a silver as a heavily underrated underdog.
I’m currently watching the Combine, ie the NFL Cattle call.
I really want to get a gander at McCoy and Suh; Its looking like the Rams are falling hard and fast for China Doll Bradford, so we are going to have our choice pick of strong defensive talent. I also want to see this brand new Tebow they are trying to pitch at us… I still think he’s a practice squadder; He’ll go way to high though, I think Jacksonville pretty much has to draft him.
For Your enjoyment, here’s mooch from NFL Network which won’t let me embed because they suck.
