"Dollar Bill" was an out-of-touch old man long before technology and the Internet came along, and he's best remembered here for firing long-time coach Billy Reay by slipping a notice under his hotel room door. On Christmas Eve.

I'm sure he did good things, and possibly he didn't want to go out of his way to make sure they would be well-publicized. Sorry there's just not many good thoughts of the man, even at this time. But now maybe we'll see if the modern NHL can work in Chicago. Certainly this development should have more of an impact on the Hawks than the pending change of ownership should have on the Cubs.

The funeral will not be televised.




It's the Big "W", I tell ya! The Big "W"!

The City of St. Louis would like to thank Mr. Wirtz for wanting to unload the St. Louis Arena and forcing the NHL to expand to a city that had no palpable interest in a team and zero ownership groups lined up to buy the expansion franchise.

Thanks for the support!

Rumor has it that Ovechkin isn't playing as well as the Caps had hoped he would overseas, but who cares anyway?
