2017 NHL Awards Recap

In case you missed it, the 2017 NHL Awards ceremony (aka the Connor McDavid show) was held in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.  The event also included the expansion draft selections for the Las Vegas Golden Knights.  The Golden Knights selected a good mix of young talent and veteran experience.  I expect them to come in and immediately be competitive with the rest of the league, although they may not look very good doing so with those uniforms that were unveiled on Tuesday.

Now if you’re anything like me, you’re not a big fan of awards shows.  They can be cheesy and gimmicky and typically just aren’t something I find enjoyable to watch.  Grammies? Oscars? Teen Choice Awards? No thank you.  But when you throw sports into the mix, I’m dumb enough to convince myself that it’s something exciting and different that I’d like to watch.  With the corny jokes and bad skits though, it quickly became painfully obvious that this was just another awards show.  Luckily for you, you won’t have sit through all of that again, because I’ve listed each of the award winners below.

My Traumatic Childhood Experience at a Reds/Rockies Game

The Reds are coming off of a pretty underwhelming seven game road trip where they managed to pile up one W.  Today, the Colorado Rockies come to Cincinnati for a three game series at GABP.  Whenever they come to town, I’m reminded of a traumatic experience I had as a kid at a Reds/Rockies game.

Let me set the stage for you.  The year is 1998. On a warm May day, the pudgy pre-pubescent 12 year old version of me is pumped to be heading to Riverfront stadium with my uncle and siblings.  We didn’t go to a ton of Reds games when I was a kid (2-3 a year, tops), so that day was a special treat.  A pregame meal of Skyline and soda had me hyped up as we took our seats near the outfield foul territory along the 3rd base line.
