Now is pretty much the dead time for sports, so all of you out there with gripes, let’s help kill the time until the NCAA Basketball Tournament with some good old fashioned bitching. Complain about your team is out of the playoff picture. Complain about how your baseball team has already bungled away the 2003 season. Hell, complain about the Super Bowl champion Bucs raising ticket prices. Everything is fair game.
Dean Lombardi, GM of the San Jose Sharks, can kiss my ass. Lombardi farked up this whole season when he (a) let Brad Stuart and Evgeni Nabokov hold out, which sent the team into a season-opening slump from which they never recovered, and then (b) fired coach Darryl Sutter because the team couldn’t deal with Lombardi’s screw-ups. The Sharks are all but officially eliminated from the playoffs in a season that some people picked them as a dark horse for the Stanley Cup. I’m sitting here watching them blow another game (Islanders score 24 seconds in), and I’m just flabbergasted.
Hey playoff contenders, need some more talent? The San Jose fire sale begins any day now (Owen Nolan, please pick up the white courtesy phone).
So how has YOUR team done you wrong?
