Deadspin explains why there’s an NHL lockout in a very simple Q&A.
My takeaway: the league is demanding the player’s union give up a large share of total revenue, because the league keeps teams in markets that don’t have a single fuck to give about hockey, while keeping teams out of markets that have infinite fucks to give about hockey.
Bieksa is up to his interview pranks again… but this one is so artfully done. An LA reporter went up to “Ryan Kesler” and asked him for a post game interview. Bieksa could have corrected the reporter and sent him in Kesler’s direction, but what would be the fun in that?
I wish this was video not just audio. I wish I could see the over animated reporter’s face while Bieksa totally keeps his shit together and plays it seriously. I wish I could see his face when he tells the reporter his nickname is “Guzzler”… and then the reporter calls him “Guzzler”.
The Province’s own Jason Botchford tracked down Bieksa to ask him about the prank and find out why he did it. (Seriously, these are real quotes.)
“That guy’s an idiot. It’s his own fault if he can’t tell the difference between an all star center and a plug defenceman” explained Kevin Bieksa. “He shouldn’t even be allowed in the room.” Bieksa didn’t stop there, as he continued to rip on Dunsmore “He doesn’t know who Ryan Kesler is. Ryan Kesler won a silver medal for them. I did a full 10 maybe 15 minute interview with him, I was telling how I grew up in Livonia”
