Oh no! Why do bad things happen to good people? Man, imagine the year Pittsburgh fans have had. Their franchise wide receiver forced himself out of the city via trade, their star running back would rather sit out the season and take a pay cut to play for the New York Jets than put on the black and yellow, Big Ben may or may not be a racist and now this.

Tied for the NHL record for points in a season?
Clinched a playoff berth in mid-March?
Won the Presidents’ Trophy?
Didn’t. Fucking. Matter

I was texting hateful things to my fellow CBJers and was trying to decide if I should throw a chair through my 100″ screen or rip my 32″ that is mounted below it clean off the wall and break it over my knee.

Until the clock strikes 0:00 and all chances for a video review are exhausted, I still don’t believe my team has won. It’s a miserable life to live, but someone has to. Right? Continue reading
For the first time in franchise history, the Columbus Blue Jackets are heading to the Stanley Cup Playoffs in back-to-back seasons. With their 5-4 OT loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Jackets secured the final point needed to stamp their playoff passports. It would’ve been a lot cooler if they clinched their playoff berth with a victory over the Penguins, but with the way the season looked at times, I’ll take it.
