Don Cherry, Get Fuzzy and Video ReviewShareThis
Before I let the Matt-Cooke-on-Mark-Savard-hit go (and keeping in mind that once I do, Savard will still be dealing with weeks/months of photo-sensitivity and inability to exercise without dry-heaving for few minutes), I thought I’d run the Coaches Corner where Don Cherry addressed the situation better than anyone so far – it’s a must-see. This is the rare issue worthy of Cherry’s intensity, and really puts Matt Cooke (and the situation) in perspective:

I’m a cartoon guy.
Not like a “Saturday morning” cartoon guy, or a “Superman” cartoon guy, but a comic strip dude. I can get pretty passionate in either praise for The Far Side, or in VILE PULSATING HATRED for Family Circus (I’ve been thinking about running their daily cartoon and just viciously shredding it like Fuck You, Penguin does to cute animals pictures, only my version would lack the redeeming quality of having cute animal pictures). If you’re a comic-sseur like myself, you may enjoy the following daily comic strips (your suggestions welcome):
(Also, in college I quite liked the Strong Bad emails and Teen Girl Squad at Homestar Runner.com.)
Okay, back to hockey – one quick thought:
A colour guy made a great point on the weekend: Ilya Kovalchuk took a lazy wrister from just inside the blue line, and Marc-Andre Fleury went to catch it. Travis Zajac came from the side of the net, and simply pushed in Fleury’s glove with his stick, allowing the puck to go, y’know, in the net. From the refs angle, he couldn’t see the interference.
Why not make goalie interference video reviewable? I understand the “it’d hold up the game” argument, but isn’t that one of the few places you’d like to be sure you got the call exactly right?
Oh wooden legs. Are you ever un-funny?
And last, let me continue to siphen away those painful Monday minutes for ya. This is “Really?!?, with Seth and Jerry” —- aimed at Eric Massa.
