Does the Winter Classic matter?

05:26 PM ET 11.01 | Since 2008, the NHL has made much ado about their annual New Year's Day event known as the Winter Classic. The idea behind it is pretty neat: two teams playing one regular season game outdoors, sometimes in the elements. It brings back childhood memories for a lot watching. And to be perfectly honest with you, I couldn't care less if the Winter Classic happened or didn't. Stories circulating online suggest the NHL might cancel the Winter Classic as soon as tomorrow. With no chance at hockey until at least Dec. 1, the wheels might soon be coming off of this year's outdoor game. Do you care?

Yes, I know the interns are lazy. Yes, I know the interns look for "controversial" articles. That doesn't mean the interns don't suck at what stories they post, and this has OFFICIALLY become Exhibit A. Oil on Whyte? The hell?

Seriously guys, this is weak stuff. An Edmonton Oilers fan site is now being cited as a "news story". Holy crap, this is pathetic.

I'm sure I could find a few guys called Sully in Southie. If I got a group together and called it Sully's in Southie and posted random crap, would you post it as news, interns? Seems the bar is really set low now, if needed, I'll get you some shovels so you can start digging.

This is the most pathetic attempt at controversy and shows of laziness and simply not even being able to do your jobs that I've seen from the interns running around here.

Have a day interns, have a day.

Sully - Yo, this is Sully here at the Drunken Irishman bah here in Southie. I'm here with my buddy Sully and his brother Sully and were here to talk Broons hockey. Hey, if you don't like it, go screw yourself.

Background Sully - Someone go get LB out of the bah, were talkin hockey here.

LB staggers out - Hey.....I remember the time......I fought with fjkdal fjalfdsa....... (trails off and falls asleep)

Sully - Thanks LB for that discussion, you were wikked awesome.

(Callahan wanders up) - Yo Sully, I saw some Canadiens fans visiting. Let's hit the bah for a few Narragansetts and go fight with them.

Sully - Great idear, we'll show them. This is Broons territory.

It's not proper internet etiquette to post Rex's really name on a website. :-)

This is quite the scoop. Fan violence triggered by the lockout. Details in the next blog post - whenever that is.
