Convention Over; When does the Season start again?

Anyone who attended the convention this weekend, feel free to share your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.  Me, I lived vicariously this weekend through Forklift’s Twitter

By all accounts, it seems as though President McDonough got a chilly reception the first night.  By chilly, I mean booed unmercifully.  Then, when he was given his time on the microphone, he did what he does best, and people were falling all over themselves to admire him again.

That’s fine, you’re entitled to the right to immediately forgive someone after they just spent the last week talking out of both sides of their mouth. 

I don’t even care all that much that Dale Tallon was relieved of his general managing duties.  He certainly had his warts and as I wrote last week, if the move was made for the right reasons, then this is fine. 

What I do have a problem with is a team president who admits to the public not knowing anything about hockey yet behind closed doors may act like Don Cherry after polishing off a 12-pack of Red Bull.  That’s not good for anybody.  

That’s a legitimate concern and anyone who thinks otherwise is nose deep in the Blackhawk Kool-Aid.

Unfortunately, because this is the off-season, there isn’t much else to discuss, so this soap opera has become the only topic of discussion.  If there were actual games to watch, then we’d have something else trivial to be worried about, like why hasn’t Brian Campbell scored a goal in a couple weeks or why hasn’t Adam Burish dropped the gloves since the Bush Administration. 

Ah, the joys of summer….

    Now that the Dale Tallon firing and subsequent upheaval is moving from headlights to rear-view mirror, it needs a name for easier reference. I am going to throw “Tallongate” out there. But if you are more into the TMZ type of thing, then we could go with “DaleBow”

    Campbell and Hossa are overpaid bums, both of them. They were supposed to come over this weekend to paint my fence and take care of some other yard work, and they didn’t.

  3. John says:

    DaleBow won’t be over until Bobby says it is.
