Well, fudge.

In my first spare second since pre-planning began (yaaaaay) I was going to write something about how Erik Johnson and Paul Kariya were ready to go for this season, and how wonderful this year is shaping up to be and blah blah blah.

Then I log on to St. Louis Game Time. And I saw a photo of this man:

That eagle's not being fierce, it's having a PMS attack.

In some weird bid to play Pokemon and collect every former Blackhawks goaltender EVER, John Davidson has hired Eddie Belfour to be the Rivermen's goaltending consultant.

I hate this man. HATE. I don't care what team he's on, I will boo him. And I don't boo players - I was raised to be a polite Cardinals fan and not boo the opposition, and I usually don't unless they do something shady to one of our guys. But whenever he skated out onto the ice at Philips as a goaltender for Florida and Toronto, I wanted to heave something - anything - at him. The sweep in 1993? Yep. I hate him because of this. Though, I admit, watching him nut up was funny as hell.


Beeeeeeeelfoouuur... Beeeeeeeelfoouuur... Beeeeeeeelfoouuur...


He can pitch a whining crying fit at the drop of a hat. There is also the fear that he'll take our young guys out on drinking binges, pick a fight with a cop, and attempt to bribe them with a billion dollars. Is that really the kind of mentor we want around?

Sure, he may be an alcoholic. But he's an alcoholic with a ring.

That's the only saving grace: he's an excellent goalie and is actually probably one of the best people for the job.

But... but... it's Eddie frickin' Belfour. Working for the Blues. It's just too paradoxal. If you would have told me 16 years ago that man freaking out on the ice would some day work for our franchise, I never would have believed you.

Look, my Uncle Harry has NOTHING to do with Ed Belfour. OK?

What is pre-planning?

Oh, it's a magical week when teachers get to be at school without children... and sit in meetings. Weeeee!
