The latest in a long line of terrible columns.
[Knuckleheads Can't Wait To Boo Hossa]
"Philadelphia has nothing on Pittsburgh.
In Pittsburgh, they regularly and vociferously boo the second-greatest hockey player to perform for the beloved home team.
In Pittsburgh, they boo the kid third baseman who had put up Roberto Clemente-type numbers until he was mysteriously traded.
When it comes to knuckleheads, Pittsburgh has it all over Philadelphia."
Is this 1930?
You have to love it when sports writers in this town chastise us.
Not to mention they group all fans in the same boat.
We don't boo Jagr, never have, never will.
We know a lot of people that feel the same way.
We also know a lot of people who do Boo Jagr.
That's fine too.
But to say we all Boo Jagr?
Come on man.
Philadelphia heckles and taunts Sidney Crosby for no reason, but we're all knuckleheads?
They booed someone who was paralyzed on the field, but we are wrong to boo anyone?
Comparing the booing of Aramis Ramirez and Marian Hossa?
It doesn't make sense.
First off, is it even that well documented that people boo Aramis Ramirez?
Maybe someone was booing because he banged their girlfriend.
Calling us assholes- we assume that is 60 year old sports writer lingo for "knuckleheads"- doesn't fit.
Hossa sold the Penguins out, he was not a man of his word.
We owe him nothing, and we will boo him if we want.
You know what to do.
