“Pricks… Shittsburgh… Fuck ‘em all.”
In a city known for manufactured and focus-grouped soundbytes, 24/7 was on beyond refreshing.
Bourdreau 2012? Why the F not?
The final episode demands another screening or three just to soak up some of the more subtle nuance*.
The post-game Dan “Mr. Personality” Bylsma looked like he should’ve been placed under 24-hour suicide watch. Sidney “I’m ready for the relay Coach” Crosby looked far more shaken up than previously thought after his run in with that handsome stud, David Steckel. Maybe a Tom Shales-style (or more appropriately, Hank Steuver <wink-wink>) review is in order for the coming days. But until then…
A couple days ago, pal, colleague and all around sports / media geek, Dave Levy had a nice piece for WeLoveDC on siting a rink in DC for a Winter Classic: FedEx; Nationals Stadium, UMD’s Byrd Stadium and the Mall. A boy (a city) can dream.
Not mentioned in his piece is RFK. I asked Dave why. He told me to STFU and to stop fantasizing that we could write about hockey.
