You Think Hockey Refs are Bad?

I know I, like so many other hockey fans, complain about the absurb calls made from hockey officials. After watching a college football game today...I think we need to count our blessings...

During the traditional rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan..Ohio State scored. After scoring, the Ohio player turned to the crowd and put his hands over his head. He formed the letter "O". The letter "O" signified Ohio State.

The refs called a penalty for "obscene gesture directed towards the crowd". How utterly stupid is that?!

What a Game! and other updates...

Hoping others had a chance to see last night's game between Tampa Bay Lightning and Philadelphia Flayers. WOW!!!! I turned the game on and before I knew it...bam! Score...5 seconds later the opposing team ...BAM! SCORE! By the end of the first period the score was 5-4. Ending score: 8-7 TPA. NHL on the Fly stated it was the highest-scoring game since 1998. The game was addicting. I stopped doing everything else and just sat in front of the tv, mesmerized by what was going on. Just great....:) Steven Stamkos scored a hat trick. He's on a definite winning streak. What fun! I missed not seeing the ice covered with hats. (The game was in PHI) I would cheer for an opposing team member's hat trick. What's up with that?

More info...Sean Avery seems to be back to his old tricks. Last week, he took a cheap, unnecessary shot at an opponent. (I don't remember who). I don't care how much “Anger Management” someone goes though, if the person is selfish...they're selfish. Avery is a selfish player. It's too bad, also. Once he sticks to playing hockey, he's a good player.

The Lightning have been fun to watch. Having Stevie Y with the team, will – no doubt – be to the team's benefit. The team will turn into a success. There are numerous, skilled players of both veteran and beginning levels who will be gelled into a winning team.

The first half of the season is a time for developing lines and seeing what works best. Games are fun to watch, but the season doesn't really kick into gear until my opinion...

OK....enough for now. Have a good one!
