But, I’m telling you, it’s time to focus on this guy:
But not this guy in the white and blue, who I see has stolen my standard facial expression . . .
Are you ready to get into this? Because I can help.
It’s real good, you should read it. But, yeah, I have no idea.
Uh, okay. So what even is going on with the Vegas Golden Knights?
Soooooooo, I also sort of have no idea on this one, either, because this was all super unexpected.
Shouldn’t there be like, experts who could have seen this coming or something?

I don’t actually care that much about hockey, so why should I watch the finals?
Man, because this is nuts. I don’t know what you want from sports, but this has:
Yeah, but does it have a good dog?
Okay, tell me more.
Dude, even the front office/coaching parts have fun side plots. George McPhee is the general manager of the Golden Knights and also the former general manager of the Capitals, which seems awkward and amazing, since he is basically the architect of both sides. Just . . . feelings. So many feelings.
