Still waiting for Chris Chelios to announce the roster for the Greek Olympic Team #onlyhope #hellas

+ Daniel Briere, you scored two goals in the same game. Two goals! In one game!
+ Good job, Tyler Bozak, for going to the Winter Classic and not smearing your eye black all over your face.
- Marcel Aubut, your Team Canada announcement speech was so long and no one even remembers what you said. And you name-dropped Stephen Harper, which isn't the best thing to do in a Canada that looks ready for new leadership.
- To everyone who suddenly got up in arms when one interview reminded them that black female cast members are a rarity on SNL, then thought that Kenan Thompson's attempt at justifying it were lame, and now are complaining that the hiring of Sasheer Zamata was an act of "blatant tokenism" when they most likely haven't watched any of her work: you get a Minus. You basically pushed for a diversity hire and now are complaining because you think you got one, before even finding out if Zamata is going to be any good on the show? Do you seriously have nothing better to do? Did you tire of saying "I haven't watched SNL since ____ was in the cast"? It just seems to me that if we as an audience want new voices in comedy, and welcome comedians regardless of cultural background, that we shouldn't immediately jump to conclusions and write thinkpieces before Zamata has even been to her first costume fitting.
NOT SURE IF IT'S A PLUS OR A MINUS
The Bell Centre bat. Funny? Scary? Some kind of omen? I don't know.
Oh, and by the way, I'm too nice to give a Minus to any player who made their country's Olympic team but doesn't "deserve to." There will be none of that here.
