Yep, this guy is knocking down Figure Skating yet again while comparing it to hockey in a hockey-mad city. His article is about the London Knights and their wanting to bid on the 2012 memorial cup. Now I like hockey as much as probably anybody around here, but he really didn't need to say some rather nasty stuff about figure skating to try and pump up his article. Here's a few quotes that ticked me off What a twat! Un-fricking-believable. He then goes on and later says Guess he doesn't realize that a WORLD championship means that people will be coming from not just across Canada but from the rest of the WORLD!!! That's world-wise exposure -- something that not every city ever gets, let alone the size of a city like London. I'm guessing that someone from Shawinigan would return to London Ontario about as much as someone from Osaka would like to visit it -- like next to never! London is not one of those "destination" place where one would go for vacation. It is a place where you would go and see an event over multiple days -- like figure skating or curling or even hockey. Typical of Morris to go off on yet another rant. I sometimes wonder why I read his articles. Sometimes they're OK but then there's ones like this that just get me steaming. I'm almost at the point where I am thinking of adding a comment to his article. Maybe I better give myself a cooling down period and just remember who he is -- at hockey guy who can't see much of anything else. I think his life is the poorer for having such a narrow focus. OK, stepping off my soap box now, rant over -- for the time being.
