Change their Name

Spent a few minutes last night watching the hockey game, it was the Anti-Christs versus Washington.

There were a few good things in this game:

1) Ottawa lost

2) I Found out that Chris Clark was Washington's Captain

3) Ottawa lost

4) I got to watch "The Real One" - Alexander Ovechkin.

Ovechkin is unbelievable, every shift has something of merit. He plays the game with incredible skill, but more importantly with passion and obvious joy. At times it appears that he is playing a completely different game. One day I expect him to stop at centre ice, tear off his jersey and skin and reveal himself as the alien being he really is.

No offense to Sidney Crosby, Dion Phaneuf or anyone named Staal but there can only be one "chosen one" and he is Ovechkin.

So I got to thinking, since no one besides their mothers, Ed Willes or an NHL General Manager could name more than 3 Capitals ( I got Ovechkin, Olaf Kolzig and Dainius Zubrus) why not change the team name.

Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome your Washington Ovechkins - hell he's the only reason anybody comes to see them anyway.

Quick Post - Week 13

Stunk last week, and then it snowed ........... and I hate snow.

I like Kansas City giving 5 in Cleveland and Dallas giving 3 in New York against Eli (Gee do you think the Giants might want a Mulligan on that deal - "Hey can we just take that Rivers kid instead ?") but it's an under dog year so I'm taking Jacksonville getting 2 points in Miami and Houston getting 3 points in Oakland for $100 each way.
