The Good and the Bad of Today

Today has been an emotional roller coaster.

First, the Supreme Court of the United States of America finally moved us one step closer to fulfilling the promise of the Declaration of Independence by bitch slapping bigotry and ruling that homosexuals have the right to be legally married. As if common sense and decency weren’t enough to show a civilized human that such rights are obvious and should never have needed a court ruling to point out to the country.

I have to say, I was pretty proud of my country when I heard the news.

Later, in infinitely less important news, the Boston Bruins dumped Dougie Hamilton for draft picks, followed shortly after by dumping Milan Lucic for more draft picks, and then they signed a bottom pair defenseman to a four year 2.75 million dollar per year contract. They ended up with pics 13-15 in the first round. The pain and suffering was mitigated by the hope that they would package some of these picks and either trade up for an impact prospect, or trade them for a current NHL player. They did neither. They used all three picks on people that the NHL pundits thought were not worthy of mid-first round selections.

Don Sweeney… the honeymoon is over. So very, very over. I don’t want to come right out and say that you suck as a general manager…

But it sure looks like you suck as a general manager.

Dark days are ahead for Bruins fans.

At least the United States did the right thing.
