    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    That’s not even the worst of it as well. You know who the Penguins’ home opener is against? The Capitals. On the very next night. So not only do the Caps not get to raise a banner against their most hated rivals, after they did it to us last year, but they have to start the season with a back-to-back, the second half of which is a home game for said rivals. You’d think Gary Bettman would be able to hide his ire for the Capitals better than that. Well, maybe not.

    My friend once told me that the Bills should rebrand as the Buffalo Chips.

    The NHL has punished the Caps for beating their precious Golden Knights in the final, as they somehow don’t schedule the Caps vs. the Pens for their home opener to allow them to get revenge for last year. Poor Bettman couldn’t handle Vegas losing to a “bunch of chokers”.

    In what may be the least surprising move of the NHL offseason, Ottawa has traded Mike Hoffman to San Jose.

    Apparently there was a clause in his contract where if he won the Cup, his contract got a two year extension automatically. All they had to do was negotiate the details and apparently they couldn’t do that. I’m sad to see him go. He has to go down now as the best coach in Caps history, what with 2 President’s Trophies (in a row), 3 division titles (in a row), and a Cup. However, the Caps have been grooming his assistant, Todd Reirden, now for a while to take over for him. Thank you Barry for all you did for this fanbase. It will not soon be forgotten. Short of being hired by the Penguins, Rangers, or Flyers, I think Trotz will always have a great reception in D.C. for what he did for this team. I wish him well in all his future endeavors. Bold prediction: Trotz “retires” only to un-retire in 2020 when Seattle starts playing to coach them. Without a guarantee from Tavares that he’s staying, why would a coach of his quality go to the Islanders?

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Brazil continues the “powerhouses not playing well in match #1” trend, draws with Switzerland. Brazil, Argentina, and Spain have all drawn in their first match. Germany lost.

    And people wonder why a Canadian team hasn’t won the Cup in 25 years.

    Messi is going to have to drag this team kicking and screaming if they want to get anywhere. He has so much talent around him on paper - Aguero, Higuain, Di Maria, Banega, the list goes on and on. And yet he has to carry this team LeBron-style if they want to get anywhere. What a waste.

    How does he still have a job?

    I don’t much follow the Canadiens but Galchenyuk seems like a better player than Domi. Correct me if I’m wrong but that seems like a big L for Montreal in a straight up deal, unless Domi perfectly fits their system or has some ridiculously good contract, etc.

    Kawhi wants out of San Antonio. Let the madness begin.

    Should I Get ESPN+?

    Cool, thanks. I may get it for a month and try it out. I have a feeling the rest of it’s not worth it for me, but to catch a Stanley Cup series and the odd MLS game here or there might be good for a month or two.

    Should I Get ESPN+?

    What kind of content do they offer, exactly? I know they have a Quest for the Stanley Cup series or something that interests me, but I don’t want to cough up $5 just to watch that (I’m a cheapskate).

    Looks like someone is desperate for any sort of non-meme related relevancy or attention.

    I once had an idea for a hockey team called the Baltimore Inferno. Does that count?

    After that performance by Saudi Arabia, it’s clear that what the World Cup needs is 16 more teams. (stolen from twitter)

    Not yet, apparently.
  20. It’s not a great uni imo, but it’s alright as an alt. Awful as a primary though. BBTV’s ordering is correct imo. Those 90’s blue uniforms are gorgeous and no one can tell me otherwise.

    After he accepted an offer to become Real Madrid’s next manager, Spain have sacked Julen Lopetegui two days before the World Cup. Lopetegui was undefeated in his time as manager. Madness.

    I hope so. Messi deserves an international trophy.

    The only one I'd feel bad for is Lonzo. I like Lonzo; he seems surprisingly normal considering his genes. And it would stink to see him have to play on a team with poor options around him. But I'd be all for it just to see LaVar's reaction.
