God Hates Greg

I realize I doom myself by even mentioning this on the blog, but I'm dating someone semi-seriously now, for the first time since roughly 1968. And accordingly, over the past few days, since I acknowledged to myself that this may be semi-serious, I've apparently turned into the most attractive man on earth. Cute girls asking bartenders about me, interrupting me to ask what I'm reading, etc. This after about 10 months that made the monastic life look action-packed. Someone, anyone, feel free to kill me.

Hockey stuff: the Vancouver Canucks have signed Jan Bulis. As way too many people have pointed out -- Alanah's starting to get testy -- Bulis is a left wing (and center). This gives the Canucks about 45 left wings for next year, while the only right wings they have (according to vancouvercanucks.com) are Trevor Linden, Richard Park, and Tyler Bouck. Some people find this questionable team-building on Dave Nonis's part; I prefer to think that he's letting his political philosophy shine through, and trying to build a firmly left-leaning team. I heartily approve. We know who Hugo Chávez will be rooting for, once the NHL starts back up.

Following your political analogy, I prefer to think that "left wingers" can do anything.

For instance, any time now - especially in today's political climate - I expect Bulis to become an expert at "defense"...

Bwahahaha! Bulis ain't a socialist. The poor guy grew up in the ghettos of Socialist Paradise known as Pardubice, Czechslovakia.

Don't you realize that we've got Nicklas Danielsson, Marc-Andre Bernier, and Evan Fuller just chomping at the bit for a RW spot on the Canucks...

*sigh*

This is excellent Temujin! I always figured we'd have a political debate one day -- I just never figured we'd do it on someone else's blog! :-)

Anyway, kidding aside, I'm guessing the RW will get taken care of just fine. In fact, I don't think we've technically had enough RW for about 5 years on this damn team, and yet we've mostly made the playoffs.

(Uh oh... Maybe we don't even need right-wingers!!) Oh shoot -- there's me, slipping into politics again... ;-)

I figure Bulis's designation as "left wing/center" is just an example of Nonis showing the moderates they still have a place on the VanCans.
