Hmmm... So Dave McB forwarded this along to me earlier tonight. Not exactly what I want to see before bed. I'm going to end up dreaming about punching Jack Johnson in the face repeatedly.
Johnson, not to be confused with the famous man with the same name who plays crappy music that makes girls and girly men alike get all gushy, was interviewed at Inside the Kings. He had some not so kind words for Long Island. You can imagine that I'm probably going to have a little beef with Jackie.
Question: I know it is still early, but what's your call on the worst NHL hockey city?
Johnson: (Laughs). Oh, I'd have to say the Islanders' rink and the area just around there was the worst (laughs).
Dick. At least our fans show up before the second intermission.
Look. I know the Coliseum is crap. I know it's really ugly on the outside. But hey, I've still gotta be reppin' the 516 homie.
Oh and Jack, in case this hockey thing doesn't pan out -- you did bust your ankle last season -- you might want to get an actual degree.
Question: What are you studying?
Johnson: I'm just a general studies major. I don't care what my degree is as long as I get one (laughs).
That's called a jock degree, not a real degree. I don't think you want to be working at Arby's when you're done playing hockey now do you?
