This makes sense, but what is the KISS principle ?

Not only that, but I feel that the commentaries concerning the Canadiens are just--for the most part--idiotic. You have 20-30 analysts around the city commenting after the game--people who can barely articulate a full sentence, and who's opinion are just, for the majority, nothing more enlightening than what you and I can come up with.

I read this board, and I see people getting upset over the 4th-line center (some random guy playing less than 10 minutes a game) and it just boggles me. I like talking about the Habs or I wouldn't be here. But everytime I read a majority of people get upset over some very trivial stuff, it just makes me disgusted about this hockey-mad culture we've created.

I don't want to come across as the guy who's better than everyone. I'm not. I used to get upset over the same things. Then, I don't know... I just realized no matter how loud I shout about this and that, I'm just along for the ride. I don't really care to shout so loud that I might make a difference. It's just a sport. It's just entertainment. There are far worse things in the world to get upset about.
This is a great point, maybe when and if the Nords come back the media will split up a bit and things won't be so crazy around here.
