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