Matt The Mask (MTM) here, you know the Jason guy. Wanted to let you know Gary Bettman has canceled the season and awarded your CBJ Lord Stanley!
I got the following from over on HFboards, courtesy of Fred Glover:
The NHL commisioner, Gary Bettman, today announced that the Columbus Blue Jackets have won the Stanley Cup for the 2009-2010 hockey season. In light of the recent developments regarding the Nobel Peace Prize, the commisioner thought it only appropriate that the Blue Jackets be awarded the Cup, based, not on anything the team has done, but because of what MIGHT happen in the future. Jon Mirasty accepted the award for the team, who did not want to touch the Cup. Instead, the team wished to compete for the award on the ice. Some fans in Columbus were delirous with joy, others were ambivalent, hoping instead that Ohio State would be awarded the National Championship for the 2009 football campaign, utilizing the same criteria.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! I laughed my rear end off on that one! GO JACKETS! Game time in 6 hours!
