Crime Of The Century

The worst part about the Colorado Avalanche's dispatching of the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the NHL playoffs wasn't that the Wild's season came to a premature and disappointing end. That happened every year of the team's existence except 2003, so there isn't any extra disappointment there.

It isn't that an exciting Wild season is over. Frankly, I find the NHL too defensive oriented. I find Olympic hockey far more exciting. To a certain extent college and high-school hockey is also more fun to watch. Although "student-athlete" talent levels are significantly lower than the pros, the style often feels more free-wheeling.

No, the reason I am most disappointed in this result was that I had the perfect headline for a post on the Wild's victory:

No way, Jose
