The Morning Skate for Tuesday, August 18

Bullet points for a Tuesday morning spent making fun of Toronto ...
  • Patrick Kane is very, very sorry for the pain he caused his family, the Blackhawks, and the city of Buffalo. Apparently, he's not so sorry for the pain he inflicted on the cabbie;
  • Canada reveals what everyone will be wearing come Vancouver 2010;
  • Mike Modano is last man standing from the USA's golden generation ... and we mention it here because there is so little going on this qualifies as hockey news;

Longest. Off-season. Ever.

Speaking of USA! USA! Nice behind the scenes reportage from Down Goes Brown.

And this bit belongs on the Onion.

Hey lawyers, you don't have any legal analysis on the Balsille case?

Found this on I/O ... 10 minutes of Mike Komisarek spitting bullshit cliches about Vancouver 2010/Team USA, his buddy "Burkie," Miracle on Ice, America FUCK YEAH, etc.

Right, replace the square brackets. Ahem. Sorry!

Screw you, Komisarek.

Saw the billboard two weeks ago in Kelowna BC on vacation...thought it was hilarious.

Some people out here on the west coast literally feel almost the same way about people from Toronto as they do about Americans...ALMOST. Nice to have that f**ker Komisarek filling both roles so we can have a central figure to focus this hatred on.

The beer ad doesn't make any sense. How is the temperature of the beer per se an attribute of this particular beer?

@ Boob

It's not like Coors can really advertise the taste of their beer, can they? Though if they did, I'm sure they could still have drawn comparisons to Toronto ("Coors Light: almost as bland as Toronto!")

At least they didn't talk about it "tasting cold." Cold isn't a taste, it's a temperature.
