Canucks and Beyond

From Kevin Smith’s NHL.com blog, some parting words from a Devils fan on his way to the golf course:
One parting thought – and this is directed at the women-folk who love, support and sleep with a Rangers fan…
Many a Rangers fan will dismissively refer to the Devils as “the Debbies”, even going so far as calling Marty Brodeur “Martha.” This casual misogyny should concern every lady who loves a Blueshirt-lover – as what’s really being said is this: in an effort to diminish a team they despise, some Rangers’ fans’ idea of an insult is to call the Devils women. It’s as if the worst slander they can imagine is equating the black and red with the distaff.
Ladies, I don’t know about you, but I (and every Devils fan) find that notion repugnant beyond words… and worthy of reprisal. Might I suggest withholding sex? In an effort to curb this rampant hate-speech, I’d say you could threaten your men with no coitus ‘til the Rangers take home another Stanley Cup, but we don’t want a “Children of Men” thing going on in Manhattan; no nookie ‘til next season should suffice.
And should the nookie-strike prove too taxing and you find yourself pining for the touch of men – real men, who respect women – pop on over to Jersey. There are a bunch of guys just a few miles away who won’t be plastered to their televisions for the next week and I’ll be more than happy to show a playoff-widow a great time.
Not sure if he’ll continue blogging about hockey through the playoffs, but I sort of hope so. He’s been the best ‘guest blogger’ on the NHL website by far. Willing to engage his readers in the comments and around the site, and with a sense of humor.
But I’m a bit of a fan of his, anyway. For more Kevin Smith, check out Silent Bob Speaks, the online diary of his “Boring-Ass Life” and various other things.
