Choking Dogs? This isn’t Easy.

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.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

  1. Mr. Mc. says:

    I think your favorite ESPN commentator (Tony Kornheiser) tried to put it eloquently when he likened the “Caps'” playoff success as the following “The Capitals losing in the playoffs is like the triple chocolate waterfall at Golden Corral…perpetual.”

  2. What a stunner. The only thing as reliable as the Capitals falling short in the playoffs are the New York Jets falling short every season and blaming it on everything other than managerial ineptitude.
