Ain't that the truth! Might be what the Chicago Blackhawks are saying to the LA Kings...The 'Hawks have taken a 2-0 lead on the Kings and will now head to LA to play games 3 and 4...Chicago's speed and skill has shown some weaknesses in the Kings game...And Goalie Johnathan Quick who has been so impressive through the playoffs, suddenly looks very human...I expect the Kings to take one game at home, but the way this series looks, I think it may be over in 5...That would be good for me since months ago I was saying Chicago would be in the Finals...

In the East, Boston went up 1-0 after shutting out the Penguins...Pittsburgh seem unsure of their goalies, and they got out of their own game, and tried to get physical with the Bruins...That's not a battle they're going to win...

And of course, where there is Penguins forward Matt Cooke, there is contraversy...Cooke who was a decent, player with some skill, at some point decided to be a shithead and make his career all about trying to injure people...Cooke started with knee shots...Then moved up to head shots...So when he called for this penalty Saturday, no one should have been surprised...

Yet, Penguins fans were unhappy...Odd...Later, the Bruins Brad Marchand made a similar hit on James Neal, and Boston fan didn't seem to get up in arms about the call...But it was the reaction from a Pittsburgh fan...A Pittsburgh citizen, that really caught people's attention on the internet...Meet Jordan Kuruc...

Wow!

I have said some awful shit to people online...Hell, I've said awful shit to their face...But this douchebag didn't seem to get why people were so mad about this tweet...And then when he apologized, and deleted it, he expressed the reason he felt bad was because "a kid died" in the bombing...This douche just couldn't get why people turned and attacked him on Twitter...Then, come Sunday he began to enjoy the role...Saying how he "Always wanted to be a heel in the WWE."

Jordan Kuruc felt bad that "a kid died" in the Boston bombing...Imagine this Jordan...You're a little girl...Ha! he does look like a bitch...Anyways...You're there, the bomb goes off...Your brother dies...Your mother suffers severe head trauma...Oh, and you lose your leg...Just imagine that...That's just one little girl's story...Now can you get why people are pissed...You got your 15 minutes for being a total fucking asshole...

I'm a dickhead, and I wouldn't have said that about a hockey game...Especially defending a piece of shit like Cooke...I want to wish pain and suffering on Kuruc....You know, like some awful shit...Like him and everyone he loves, get AIDS....But screw it...I'll rise above...You're fucking asshole, and everyone knows it....Oh, and thanks for giving me another reason to hate you're asshole city!

In other Hockey news, The New York Rangers fired their coach, John Tortorella...His abrasive style wasn't going to last much longer, even if the Rangers did beat the Bruins...Torts had his guys, and they bought into his system, and style he wanted them to play...Those that didn't, were bounced...Yet, he still found ways to shit all over the guys he had...The only people that got more shit were the media...So, this is why you hear no one arguing against his firing...He's a good coach...But shitting all over grown men is going to get old quick...I'm surprised it took as long as did before the players had enough...

But I have another question...Why is GM, Glen Sather not on the hot-seat...He's been with the Rangers for 13 years...He's had 6 coaches...The best the team has done is getting to one conference final...Now there is talk that he is looking at two of his old boys to be the next coach...Wayne Gretzky, who's first stint as a head coach wasn't a very good one...And Mark Messier...Messier's only coaching experience is coaching his son's pee-wee team...Yes, the fans would love it...Sure, some players might get a thrill out of it...But I don't think it's a good move...This team needs a proven coach...Not a couple of old super stars who are missing the spotlight...

-As for my weekend...It was pretty uneventful...Friday I was suppose to meet some old friends out for drinks...Sadly, I fell asleep with Molls while I was trying to get her down...

Saturday we had a baseball practice...The team is coming along well...Then we relaxed at home...Pizza, hockey, and a jam session...

Little Beeze finding the Groove...

Molls was a heck of a band leader...

That's it for now...Oh, and say hello to our NEWEST member...

Have a week...

Why Is This A$$hole Still In The NHL?

Tags: NHL Todd Bertuzzi Matt Cooke Head Shots Hockey High School Hockey The Beeze

 
Yes, I want to know why Todd Bertuzzi is still allowed to play in the NHL...The guy came up through the ranks as a gritty hard-nosed player...He had plenty of skill to go with his size, and grit, but somewhere along the way, he became a piece of shit...

We saw this come to light in 2004, when he sucker-punched Steve Moore from behind, drove him head first into the ice, and broke his neck...He ended Moore's career...Why? Because the Canucks put a bounty out on Moore for a hit he knocked Markus Naslund out with... Moore's hit on Naslund was not ruled illegal by the NHL when it happened...It would be today probably...




But Hockey has always policed itself, and our present day uber-asshole, Matt Cooke went after Moore...They dropped the gloves, and that should have been it...Moore seemed to come out on top... But it wasn't enough for Bertuzzi...




Bertuzzi served a suspension, and apologized and all that crap...But to me, that didn't matter...They way he jumped Moore from behind should have had him booted for good...Since then Bertuzzi hasn't changed his game...He has continued to play physical hockey, and every year he has at least one questionable hit...

Well he did it again this week, with a flying elbow to the head of The Blackhawks, Ryan Johnson...




So how the hell are we suppose to get rid of assholes like Matt Cooke, when assholes like Bertuzzi are still around!?!

And does any of this have anything to do with what happened in a Texas High School Hockey game? I'm not sure I want to open that can of worms yet, but here's what happened...




I love Hockey, and I love the physical aspect of the game, the intentional head-shot shit has got to stop...And guys like Bertuzzi, and Cooke have had their second chances...Now they should be gone...

What do you think?

Later, The Beeze.  

 

Some Light Friday Reading

So it's the end of the work week, for most people...Not me, my week ends after my Saturday double at the Fish House...Anyway, I thought I'd knock out something light for you all to check out...

First let me get into some Hockey...There was a lot of build-up for Thursday's Bruins/Canadiens game...Yes, it's always been a big rivalry, but after Zdeno Chara's hit on Max Pacioretty March 8th, some were expecting things to be even more heated...Well not much heat from the Canadiens...The Bruins throttled them 7-0...And the gloves weren't constantly coming off, as some expected...Just an old style ass beating, that left the Habs hanging their heads...

Many have tried to tie Chara's hit to recent injuries, and violence in Hockey...When actually it was a basic Hockey play, that just had a bad, freakish, outcome...When really it's dirty, cheap-shot, assholes, like Matt Cooke who should have their faces linked with these issues...Cooke whom, I wrote about MONDAY, did get suspended again...The rest of the regular season and the 1st round of the playoffs...He should lose a whole season...

Moving on...So we had the Time Change recently...You know, the old "Spring Forward"...We just finally got the kids adjusted to it...Hell they normally mess with me for a week...I don't how people in Indiana deal with it...Nothing like a state that is split into two timezones...




Baseball season is fast approaching, and I'm looking at the Indians roster, and well, I'm not to excited...The infield, with the exception of Astrubal Cabrera, is nothing but utility players...And don't try to tell me Matt LaPorta is a 1st baseman...He's still learning how to play the position...

At catcher, is Carlos Santana, who played a third of last season in the majors, and is coming off a serious knee injury...He had a great season, and is head and shoulders above any of the catchers they had him sitting behind at the start of last year...Yeah Lou Marson, I'm talking about you...Fucking guy couldn't hit his weight, and is a hack behind the plate...

In the outfield, Grady, coffee cup Sizemore is also coming off of a serious injury and who knows how long until he's 100%...And he wasn't that good at 100% last year...The there is Shin-Soo Choo, who you can consider a true major leaguer...Then there are about five other average, to below average guys trying to make in the outfield...

The rotation is young and unproven...Fausto Carmona is the ace...He's still young, and working on being consistent...He has great stuff, but still has plenty of room for improvement...There are 6 others trying to get into the other 4 rotation spots...A lot of dopes are liking the bullpen...Not me...Don't blow 4 games for Carmona this year, let alone the games you blew for David Huff, and maybe I'll change my mind!

Then there is overpaid, DH Travis Hafner...Since MLB cracked down on steroids, this guys has had stupid, nagging injuries, and little power...What a joke...And a waste of money...Shapiro you suck!

To sum it up...If the Indians lose less than 90 games, the season will be a success...How sad is that?

Next...The NFL is changing more rules...Apparently these dopes went to the Gary Bettman/NHL school of business...Here's the plan...Bitch about not making enough money...Lockout...Change rules that make the game worse...Piss of fans!

Well, guess what...You don't have to wait for me...I'm out...I'm okay with College Football, and the NFL can go screw...I hope they miss the whole season...


Okay, I said I was gonna keep it light...So lets end with this little gem...




Later, The Beeze.

Monday is here again, so it's time for the weekly dose of moaning...This weekend has been a real son of a bitch...My traditional Fish House Saturday double was brutal...Non-stop cooking from 12:30 PM to 9:30 PM...If that wasn't bad enough, my boss who is normally as cock-strong as they come, when it comes to bangin' food, was having an off night...There was a stench coming from his station that reminded me of my baby's diapers!

When I left the Fish House, I was in need of a drink or two...I said I was going to stop for a couple, then this one uber-douchebag server said, "dude I'll be there!" So instead I stopped at a Little Cesar's, grabbed a $5 "Hot & Ready" pie...Walked next door to the liquor store and got a 6-pack of Conway's Irish Ale...Then I headed home...

When I got there, the baby was still up, and gave me a huge smile...Everything was better than...Plus the wife was pissed...She's jealous of how much the baby love dad, and is always throwing smiles and giggles my way...

Sunday morning I checked out the NCAA_HOCKEY_BRACKETS... Yeah, I'm that guy...That's a bracket I could kick ass in...My Fighting Irish have a tough draw...They start with Merrimack, who has been tough all year...If they get past them, they'll have to take on the winner of the Miami/New Hampshire game...Two more solid teams...Miami knocked the Irish out of the CCHA tourney last week, and has gotten real hot at the right time...Is anyone one left out there? I'm picking Boston College to win it all...The Irish just don't have the goaltending this year...Okay, I'll move on...

Then I popped on the Rangers/Penguins game...The Rangers got a much needed win, which will always put a smile on my face...But it was the Penguins, so of course one of those douchebags would piss me off...Good ole Matt Cooke is at it again...Going after another head...Here's Cooke throwing an elbow at Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh...



Cooke has taken cheap shot after cheap shots at people...Going after knees, and heads for years...He's been find and suspended multiple times...The NHL needs to put their foot down, and bring the hammer down on this ass-hat!

Sunday evening I had my Fantasy Baseball draft...Our buddy Jeff is running the league, and it seems like a good group of smart guys...Half I know from the Gab...

The draft itself was, well how do I describe this without being a dick...It was brutal! There was a guy I don't know in the 2 hole...Puljos went 1st...I never thought I would see some one in the 2 hole take their full 2 minutes to make a pick...After all that waiting, he didn't do anything sexy...He didn't surprise anyone...He took Hanley Ramirez...The # 2 guy on the board...But that wasn't all...He ate the clock on every pick...And by the comment section, I wasn't the only one losing my mind...


It got worse...The Little Beeze was all hyped up, and overtired, and being a real pain in the ass...He kept pestering the wife, and getting crazy around the baby...Then his mouth wouldn't stop...So in mid-draft, as I was on the phone with my pals Sully and Steve, talking about how quickly the blind draft, I had to get in the boys face...Then the water-works started...Then more mouthiness, then he passed out on the couch...

From there, the draft dragged on...The commish adjusted the time limit as it progressed, but the damage had been done...I had to break out the charger to finish...

As I write this, Notre Dame is getting worked by FSU...I picked the Irish to win it...Why not, I don't know shit about Basketball! The team I had them beating in the Final, just got bounced tonight...Sorry Steve, I know watching Marquette take out your Syracuse Orange had to hurt...

Well, what are you going to? Cry? Sometimes you just have to have a little Blind Faith....




One last thing...Ohio State fans, please stop acting like Jim Tressel just nailed himself to the cross, and is going to wash away all of your sins...He's just doing his best politician spin, and you dopes are eating it up...

That's all for now...Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.
