Feb 26th 2010 5:41PM First off, congratulations to Team Canada's female hockey team. I have no problem with a team celebrating a gold medal victory on the ice with the team, their medals, and their flag, but on the ice is not the place to break out the champagne, beer, and cigars. That celebrating is reserved for the locker room and the locker room only. If they want to party with their fans, there's plenty of chance to do that in the Olympic village, not on the ice. Have a little more respect for the game and the other teams involved.
Feb 26th 2010 12:05AM I applaud the honesty, but not the circumstances. Hockey players can take the criticisms, but people tuning in to watch a hockey game, may or may not. This was not the sort of thing that you blurt out at the Olympics. It makes our country look bad.
I'd like anyone that thinks hockey is for rednecks or trash to explain to me how they came to this conclusion. Please, enlighten me.
Feb 25th 2010 11:03PM Well Charles, do you know what we call someone that complains about violence and then finishes up that thought with a physical threat of their own? It's called being a hypocrit. Think before you speak. It's obvious to me and every other hockey fan on this post that you know next to nothing about hockey. I've never watched a game that was like a "wrestling match". Is the violence you're referring to the checking? Because that's a part of hockey. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Stick to figure skating and leave my sport alone.
Feb 19th 2010 4:22PM I don't understand the thinking behind throwing a sport out of the Olympics just because 1 or 2 teams dominate the sport. It would be like getting rid of marathons because you know the Kenyans are going to win it. I understand it's not fun watching a rout, especially if you're rooting for the losing team. But how are you going to take an opportunity from people who have trained hard to win their respective sport. Besides, there are plenty of other examples of countries that have dominated certain events, but there's no talk of cancelling those events. I say let them play.
Feb 17th 2010 5:52PM For those of you having a hard time grasping the concept, the article is merely speculative. All they are saying is that the reasons Kevin gave for leaving the show didn't add up and they were just throwing out possible alternatives for the real reason. It wasn't written as fact based.
If NBC was resposible for making Jay out to be a bad guy, then he should've had the spine to stand up to them like Conan did and left NBC. The truth is, Jay's a maniplulative egomaniac who will step on whoever he has to to get his way, which is why he fits in so well with NBC executives.
p.s. All television stations, as well as their prgramming and news broadcasts are biased. Why would you think the internet is any different? It's called having an opinion. If you have a problem with the opinions of the information you're getting, get it somewhere else.
Dec 5th 2008 7:41PM Yeah, America's really changing for the better, isn't it? The fact that we're even more divided now than we ever were is fact that things aren't going to change. Remember how everyone said that 9-11 was going to unite the American people? Remember that feeling of caring for your fellow man? What did that last? One? Maybe two weeks? Apparantly, that unification didn't last as long as we'd hoped. And look at us now. It's like it never even happened. Now these same people are saying that Obama will unite the American people. Well, I hate to say it, but catch phrases are not going to heal America. "Yes we can" isn't going to pay the bills or put food on the table. I just hope, for all of our sakes, that I'm wrong about Obama. Because you've all seen what can happen to this country when it has someone inexperienced at the helm and remember, we're looking at another 4 years of it.
