I’m Tired of Emergency Back Up Goalies

Ohh look he’s wearing a Carolina jersey and Toronto Pads.

I am beyond tired of the emergency backup goalie in the NHL. Obviously, it’s a needed position, I get that. I just don’t want all the hype around it anymore.

David Ayers congrats, you are good enough to be an emergency goalie. You got a win, Great. You got one of the three stars of the game, super. Congrats on all these accomplishments.

Why do you need to put this man on late night TV? He literally did his job and is milking it. If you stay late, do you get to go and do the late night circuit? NO. You just did your job.

I don’t care if you’re a Zamboni driver or an accountant or the fucking kid with a hotdog box. You are asked to do a job by a team. You then did that job. Hockey fans. RELAX.

Now that I’m writing this I realize it’s not even them I’m mad at, it’s people like me. Sports writers of all shapes and sizes. There isn’t a cop of sports news right now so you put these regular people on a pedestal. If this happened in November, no one would care because football dominates your ratings. Even basketball dominates your ratings.

This was a quick rant, but I had to get it out there. Hate me, I don’t care. I’m done with the emergency goalie pump.
