JR Fights Mike Babcock, For Patriotism and the Blackhawks!
The Chronicle's unanimous pick for Greatest Living American, Jeremy Roenick, has just offered the world another example of why he's so great: He accused Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock of hating JR's former Chicago Blackhawks comrade/current Wing Chris Chelios for being American. BECAUSE MIKE BABCOCK HATES ALL AMERICANS! PREVENTIVELY DETAIN HIM!!!
This is probably just JR being completely ridiculous again, but I want to believe it's true. More than likely (actually it's really obvious) Roenick is just hoping for a Blackhawks victory in this series (why wouldn't he?) and is heroically trying to distract the Red Wings.
Not that anything could distract the Red Wings, of course, but at least the man is trying.
Posting for this weekend is doubtful (meaning it's doubtful that I'll post much, not that my posts this weekend will be tortured pensées about God and the Universe), so enjoy the tropical depression winds and occasional sunshine, welcome the summer with a bucket of Pimm's, remember the martyrs of Valley Forge and Iwo Jima, see you next week weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
P.S. Do read the Kovy interview hyper-linked below. And check out Peter Constantine.
