Even now as I write this, the desire is pretty low. My beloved Wolverines dropped another turd in the proverbial punch bowl today with an embarrassing 48-28 loss to Wisconsin. The problem with writing about them is it's not really news. I was never a fan of the Rodriguez hiring in the first place, but I was willing to give him a bit more of a break than a lot of fans. After all, he was completely redoing the team concept. Now that his first recruits are finishing their junior year, it's time for the axe to fall. With an offense that is sporadic at best and a defense that gives up more yards per game than Magellan logged, it's time for a change.
It's even hard for me to write about my dear Sharks. 9-5-4 isn't horrible, but after all the recent disappointments and a huge shakeup in net, it's real hard for me to get excited right now. Niemi is the over-rated stiff I thought he was last year. Niittymaki has done well, but he always will be a solid #2. He wasn't meant to be the go to guy. The depth is still an issue, particularly on the blueline. They are only 18 games into the season and they are already scrambling to find injury replacements.
My offline life is a swirling shitstorm, but I'm not going to go into that. So that's that then. I guess it's back to the socio-political!
