Just the usual weekly assortment of scattered thoughts running through my muddled brain
--So lemme get this straight Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman ran up to Michael Crabtree and said "hell of a game, hell of a game" and got pushed in the face for that leading to his explosive interview with Erin Andrews. Yet its Sherman who is said to have no class. OhhhhhhhhK!
--What the hell is going on with the weather!! Its at or near zero for a couple of days and then its damn cold. Can the rollercoaster please stop at oh I don't know minus 7-10 for a high and minus 15-22 for a low. Thanks!
--A great point was brought up by Access SJHL play-by-play man Mike Stackhouse this week. Stackhouse decided to give a thought or two on the Corey Matthews case that ended in Regina with the former school teacher being acquitted on a charge of sexual assault and sexual exploitation against a former student. In a Facebook post, Mike writes "Authorities don't release the name of the accused because he needs to be protected but we can hear the name Corey Matthews for four years and he's not guilty. Not guilty but the accusations will always be tagged to his name. I'd say while not ruined, the vindicated has suffered a lot of damage. Doesn't seem fair to me."
I couldn't agree more. As Matthews stated to reporters after the decision was announced, "I lost my career, I lost my life, what did I win." He is right while the guy who was highly credible in his testimony gets to walk away with no one knowing who he is. That's not right! At least not in my books.
--Its about time that Flames fans and Oilers fans stopped bickering at one another and both came to the realization their teams suck and the light at the end of the tunnel is a lonnnnnnnnng ways away. Fans in both centres deserve better!
--The Canadian national mens soccer program wants to host the World Cup in 2026. Here's an idea. Why don't you concentrate on winning a game or two instead?
--Thought of scrapping the extra point in both the CFL and NFL is dumb. Lets have a 35 yard convert to make it somewhat more interesting. While we're at it, lets put the ball on the 5 for the two point conversion.
--Well played Dallas Stars jumbotron control man, well played...
If Dave Taylor wanted to take a warm weather vacation like many others do around here in January and February, couldn't he have just gone instead of coming up with that "exposure to measles" excuse? In all seriousness, get better Dave. I don't know what you do when you are quarantined for three weeks, but I hope you have an Xbox or PS3 at your disposal. Perhaps a "Hang Time" marathon is in store!
That's all I got. Have a great weekend!
