Canadian Hockey Broadcaster Compares The Rangers And Capitals To The Policemen And Firemen From 9/11
You fucking hockey nerds. Always talking about how NHL players are tougher than any other professional athletes and more athletic than anyone on the planet and how they’re just like the first responders who died in our country’s most devastating terrorist attacks. You’re all such drama queens. I bet hockey fans complained about the second wave of firemen and policemen showing up to help at the Twin Towers were just posers hopping on the first responders bandwagon. “You don’t know anything about being a first responder so just stop pretending you know what you’re doing, bro!”
Look don’t get me wrong, this guy’s opening completely sucked. I’m not even saying that because it was insensitive or something like that. It was just overly dramatic and he was just kinda babbling about hockey and heroes and fire and shit. But at the same time he’s just trying to set the scene and build some drama and tension. So lets not all get on our high horses and play the New Yorker 9/11 card and say he’s an asshole. That being said, a real solid rule of thumb if you’re in the media is just avoid unnecessary 9/11 talk. Just ain’t worth it.
