Every time the Capitals get in the playoffs, they fall short. This time, after getting a 3-1 lead on the hated, ESPN-backed New York Rangers, they lost, 2-1 in overtime of game seven.
ESPN’s media responded with the typical “choking dogs” commentary. In fact, I don’t even know what they said because I wouldn’t want to give them ratings, but I know they said it. They (meaning a douche like Tony Kornheiser) are utterly predictable.
What super-douches Kornheisers and Wilbons don’t know, because they’ve never played any competitive sport, is, this isn’t easy.
Do they really think it would be easy knocking off the President’s Cup winners? Did they really think it would be easy putting out a media favorite? The Rangers are supposed to win that series. The Rangers are supposed to win the Stanley Cup. The Rangers are supposed to have a parade, and vindicate every douche in the Greater New York City region … if the Rangers win, the douche wins.
Beating the Rangers, the douchebags and the media ain’t easy. That’s all I have to say about that.
