Blackhawks and Senators

But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. ~Benjamin Franklin

They used to say a Republican couldn't win a Senate seat in Massachusetts, either.

That is no longer the case, and now 2010 will turn into a very interesting year in politics, stay tuned.

Let's talk about hockey, as in the National Hockey League, as in I live in a town that has the BEST team in the National Hockey League. That's right, I'm talking about the Chicago Blackhawks, who not only have the best record in the NHL, but also the best uniforms. Lately, they cannot be beat either. Awesome!

What's that?

Uh, you said they lost tonight?

To a team from Ottawa?

What state is that in?

Canada?! That's not a state!

Oh, Ottawa is in Canada, okay I get you now. My mistake.

Apparently, they can be beat on occasion, carry on now.

I bet you didn't know this, but I almost wrote "My bad," instead of "My mistake," up there. My conscience at work likes to point out that "My bad" is just poor English, and I tend to agree, so I will try not use that anymore. Now if I can get my boss to quit saying irregardless.

Did I mention that Scott Brown won in Massachusetts? That's about as crazy as the Blackhawks losing to the Senators.

Maybe.
