Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Cole’s Notes at the Vancouver Sun,
Dear Gary Bettman:
On behalf of the travelling members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, I would like to lodge a complaint about the amount of money the NHL’s deal to telecast playoff games in the United States on the Versus network is costing writers, and the damage it is doing to our livers….
Club soda and cranberry juice doesn’t pay the rent, so we are forced to consume copious quantities of beer and other libations just to keep the bars from throwing us out in favour of more lucrative customers. Over three hours — or six, if there happen to be two games on, back-to-back — this runs into serious money, not to mention dangerous levels of alcohol consumption and more chicken wings than are good for our slender figures.
