Taken For A Ride

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Kudos to the NHL for finding and hiring the most legendary van drivers in sporting history - those befuddled souls at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta who stranded hundreds of journalists or kept them from their assignments at various venues.
I say this because the fellow driving our media van after the Sens-Ducks game on Saturday night was so awful he could only have come from the ranks of the Atlanta imbeciles. He managed to turn an eight-minute drive from Scotiabank Place to the journey from hell, committing the most unpardonable sin in the eyes of the sporting media - clipping almost an hour from our time in the hospitality suite. I had not eaten since gulping down a sandwich a couple of hours before the game and I was also longing for the usual post-game restorative ale, so you can understand how my thoughts turned murderous.
