That's a totally different article, not the one I posted about.

This isn't yahoo's puckdaddy. This is just some random (my guess is yours?) wordpress blog. As far as I can tell, this is the only post on the site.

Sorry, these aint the droids you're looking for. I have better things to do with my time than write stories about hockey. LOL

If that didn't read like it was written by a member of HF, I don't know what would.

I have an appreciation for humorous writing, but this blogger isn't funny. It's obvious he thinks he is, though, so more power to him. No imagination, no real biting barbs, simpleton writing... everything was contrived and easy. There was a lot of potential for this season's Flyers eulogy, and this dude fell flat on his face.

I didn't think it was an attempt at humor at all. Just an honest assessment of the current state of the team, the late season sloppy play, and analysis of the cap situation.

You really don't need a vivid imagination when writing about those pesky facts.

But you do need the ability to properly use the language. The eulogy has spelling and grammatical errors that are pathetic in the age of electronic media.
Oh, and there's no chance of me reading the blog posting after the reviews it received here.

I don't think the author or anyone else really cares if you read the blog or not. It's one persons take on the season and current state of the team. You obviously cant factually rebutt any of it so you try to make up spelling and grammar mistakes. It still doesn't change the fact that what the guy wrote is true.

Try removing the orange glasses and put down your glass of kool-aid once in a while and be honest with yourself about the state of things around here.

Yeah ok, no chance of you reading it yet you claim it is full of spelling and grammar mistakes. Talk out of both sides of your mouth much? LOL
