Yes, the Avs have gone from one of Hockey's best and brightest, straight down to one of its softest and most despicable.

Just as he's doing in the picture to the right, Tony Granto himself, along with five others, have been put away, sacked, "relieved" of their duties . . .

Yes, the Avs have gone from holding (if I'm not mistaken) hockey's longest sell-out streak in history, down to an embarrassment and a GIANT QUESTION MARK.

Indeed, I was spoiled by my dear Avs for far too long, about 12 years, if I'm not mistaken. They set the record for consecutive years with a division championship and now they're looking up to the top, at none other than the hated (but at least respected) Detroit Red Wings. Punch me in the face, Claude Lemeuix!

Truly F-Word, with the Nuggets and Rockies so close to a first-time championship, how horrific that the perennial powerhouse Avs fall straight from grace.


(Yes, I realize the Patriots poster isn't entirely relevant, but that's how I feel about my Avs.)

Sorry to hear about the hockey team. It's kind of how I feel about the Mariners! Loved the picture of the crazed Denver Airport horse! BW

Dude. This is almost as good as Lamentations. Would the same thing happen to the Yankees if Baseball put in a salary cap? I doubt it. Somehow a very good front office fell apart. Its like we are the 49ers of Hockey now. Hopfully they can blow it up, rebuild and get back to the good ol Pattie Wah type days.

F-Word, you've hit the nail right on the head. Bring in the Men-At-Work dump truck and let it unload it's myriad tons of salt all over my gaping wounds!

As regards our chances of a rebound, I feel about as reassured right now as though Joe Montana were our new head coach . . .
