"I'm really sorry to do this to you guys right before the playoffs. I tried to tell my dad that this is where all my friends are and everything, but he just wouldn't listen," said Kane, confirming he would not be allowed to stay behind in Chicago and live with either his grandmother or Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz. "Maybe they have a hockey team in Boise and we can play each other someday." Before Kane left, each member of the team gave him a tearful hug, took down his family's new telephone number, and made a point of glaring angrily at Kane's father as he drove his family out of the United Center parking lot.
I don't know about you, but it's been a rough week so far. Just not enough hours in the day. But I have a few minutes to spare and wanted to pass these sports stories I've read from The Onion. Some are a bit old and The Onion doesn't give much respect to hockey, but they don't give much respect to anyone, really. It's all in good fun. Last year they poked fun at the Chicag Blackhawks like it was going out of style. Just check out these headlines:

And of course they had a blast with Sidney Crosby's ongoing injury drama:

They even got a little something in on our Detroit Red Wings:
If you already knew about those, why didn't you tell me!? I like laughing. You know what's also funny/pathetic in every way? I have 6 followers on Twitter. I believe 4 of those accounts are fake. So follow me and make me feel like I have a purpose, eh? @Twig81
Next game is Thursday. LGRW.
