A belated Merry Christmas to my readers! I hope you all had a joyful holiday spent with family and friends. I certainly did!
I’ve been so full of holiday cheer this month that I haven’t been taking the time to post, and now I’ve completely missed the boat on sharing my Boston/Pittsburgh suspension thoughts. The short version: I think both Thornton and Neal could have been given longer suspensions. Here’s hoping they’ll be smarter in the future – or at least make better post-game comments. I don’t know which was worse – Thornton trying to act like he felt bad or Neal not caring at all. I hope they both enjoyed brushing up on media training that week.
