How about that hockey game on Friday?!
No, I mean really? How about it? How did that happen? Why did that happen? What does it MEAN?!
I was at Chachi Plays for Kids during the game and found out via Twitter what had gone down. My initial reaction was LOL, but then I was all WTF?
I am good with words, n’at.
I wrote about the brawl over at Pittsburgh Magazine and here’s a snippet:
When the dust settled, the barroom doors no longer swinging, the blood cleaned up, the wounds stitched and the egos nursed, the Pen’s Godard was automatically suspended for ten games for leaving the player’s bench to fight (a big no-no), while two of the Islanders were suspended, and the entire Islanders organization fined $100,000.
And then on Sunday, like a lighting bolt from the sky, like a puck to the teeth, like the angry voice of God coming down from the Mount, Mario Lemieux issued a statement to the press. And Mario was not happy.
