Caps/Pens Brings out the Moronic in Some

The Capitals/Penguins rivalry usually brings out the best that hockey has to offer, especially in terms of fan passion from both camps. Unfortunately, this playoff series has ignited the hidden (and sometimes not so hidden) moronic tendencies in some. Case in point:

  • Some idiotic teenage Penguins fan (imagine?) made death threats against the Great Eight on a message board that are being investigated by local police. Seriously son? In this post 9/11 world, to make threats online does not automatically make you anonymous and I hope the authorities take this very seriously.

  • Mike Milbury, not exactly known as a "smooth talker", used Coach Boudreau's keys to the game white board to create his own talking points. Not unusual for Milbury to run out of anything interesting to say on his own, but pretty low coming from a former NHL coach.

I missed the Milbury idiocy. How difficult would it have been to even blur out the "keys"? Criminy, "all-access media" is just too much any more.
