Three events in eight days at Mellon Arena required the NHL to schedule the Capitals and Penguins to play Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series in Pittsburgh on Friday night and Game 5 at the Verizon Center in Washington on Saturday.
“The playoffs are very intense and physical and players need time to recoup. No one is advantaged by playing back to back games so no one can complain but it is unfortunate that the Yanni concert takes precedence over high quality NHL playoff hockey.”
Well here’s a question – Can an entire Professional Sports Organization Kill Itself?
J CHRIST A FUCKING YANNI CONCERT?
We’re talking about a playoff game with Crosby AND Ovechkin, the two best hockey players of this generation, and Gary Bettman and the ‘tards of the NHL and getting bumped by mother F’n YANNI.
This is just classic NHL. Let’s put some positive spin on this story for a moment:
YANNI has still GOT IT! Everytime I wrote the name in this blog I just automatically hit Caps Lock cuz thats just the kind of respect YANNI gets.
He even released a statement –
A Greek National Champ AND a musical guru!
I bet YANNI is one of those dudes who is unexpectedly LOADED with a track record in the bedroom that is up there with the best of them.
FS YANNI. FSN NHL.
