    Is It Really Shocking That Joel Ward Is Getting Racist Tweets? Like COMMON. Is this really shocking to people? People may think that Racism is going down, but if your a black person or of another minority, you’ll be discriminated against. I get it at my school, and its so subtle. People think its not racism but it is. This is in no way shocking, its just shocking because it is on the news. P.K. Subban had this incident happen to him in-game I think it was, but they used the excuse that he acts a certain way. So what about Ward?

    Just because Racism isn’t in the public eye anymore, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen still. You could say it happens just as much as before, except people are more secretive about it.

    Hockey Questions For Thanksgiving? Hi guys! It’s Thanksgiving for us Americans, let’s celebrate 🙂
    1. What’s the most memorable NHL game on Thanksgiving?
    2. What do you like most about this forgettable holiday?
    3. Joel Ward was given a press pass yesterday because he slept in on a team meeting and Brucie was imposing a “actions=consequences” method of accountability. How does your teams coach impose accountability and such? DO you like it? Does it work?
    4. True or False: Christmas a far superior holiday all around.
    5. Who’s more fierce? Caps or Rangers? Why!?
    6. What’s your opinion on Jason Chimera’s recent “hot stick” and him leading the Caps in goals (Go Chimers!!)?
    7. Which is better; putting decorations on the Christmas tree or opening your stocking?
    8. Who wants to help me contact the Czech Mob to kidnap Vokoun and deport him to the Czech Republic so “dream team” tandem Neuvy-Holtby can reign over the Phone Booth!?
    BQ* Have you ever been caught under the mistletoe? With whom? What happened?
    Thanks! Have a great Thanksgiving 🙂

      1- Can’t remember…
      2- Watching the Detroit Lions lose, especially this year when I remember Lions fans saying “I can’t wait until we player the Packers.”
      3- Joel will sit your @ss in the press box and we have an owner who will pay you multimillions to be an AHL player if necessary.
      4- False, Halloween is the best holiday with half-naked women, horror movies, and paganism, can’t beat that. Now if we celebrated the Winter Solstice like Romans did, orgiastic fun parties, then I would definitely say “yes, best holiday ever.”

      —Oh, comparison to Thanksgiving, true… but sooo much better if we did as the Romans….

      5- I don’t think of the term fierce with either team really.
      6- Hot streaks end….
      7- The stocking I guess.
      8- Do you really want Vokoun to be forced into white slavery?

      BQ: No.
