Afternoon Line - Ted Leonis

“It’s just such great theater. The bar keeps getting raised, and we’ll have a couple of unique things to D.C. I’m sure we’ll do something important with the military. Hopefully we can get President Obama to come. It’s Chicago, it’s Washington, it’s national television. I’m hoping that we can get President Obama to come to the game.”

-Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitals on the Winter Classic.  More from Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog.

Obama doesn’t give a rip about hockey.  Basketball on the other hand…

For the sake of the people going to that game, I hope Obama doesn’t show up. It will be a nightmare for everyone.

The Chicago Blackhawks have signed a long term contract with the NHL today guaranteeing them a Winter Classic appearance at least every other year, with the exception of the 2017-2018 season where they will play a split squad scrimmage at Wrigley Field for that year’s Winter Classic.

Leonsis is an unchecked, raging, egotistical moron. He and 8 deserve the zero Cups they can look forward to for the next 15 years.
