I'm glad all that is behind us now... January Preview

Lets get on with the rest of the season.. Sorry this is a bit late.  With the holidays and the Classic things have to get pushed back a bit.

The big news for today is that the Hawks will have 3, count 'em.. 3, starters in the All-Star Game... and just to show how big of a joke it all is... Brian Campbell receieved the most votes as the best defenceman in the Western Conference.  Campbell isn't even the best D-Man on the Blackhawks, let alone the whole conference.  Some people will get really upset by the fact that All-Star voting process is such a joke that only 4 teams are represented in the 12 starting spots... everyone else will realize the whole All-Star Game in general is a joke itself and not care.

So good for the Hawks - Kane.. you deserve it most of the three.

Did you all know there's a show on NBC called "Football Night in America"?  I never realized that before.. I'd like to see Bob Costas and Don Cherry fight..

New weekly poll is up too..
