1-2-3 Hockey: 3 of 39
It’s high tomato season, proof that good can triumph over evil (or at least over late blight).
Opening night is 36 days away but already we’re eyeing the Devils suspiciously. Why? Because of this report. The Devils are going to wear their original Christmas tree sweaters for a St. Patrick’s Day game. Fuck. That. Shit. One of the best things about being a Devils fan is being able to say “my team takes the high road on stupid alternate sweater gimmicks”. Well, no more, Gentle Reader. Now when you see a Christmas tree sweater in the crowd, it won’t be because the fan wearing it is an original Devils fan who remembers the Mickey Mouse days. It’ll be because someone decided it was high time the marketing department caught up to the rest of the moneygrubbing NHL teams. Lou’s given some excuse about the sweater being “part of the team’s history”. Frankly, all the history we need is hanging from the rafters. This had better not be the first step towards a third jersey! Because if the Devils get a third jersey… we’ll be forced to blog crankily about it. We’re fairly certain Lou doesn’t want that.
