Will Stanley Cup and MJ keep LBJ in Cleveland?


While, I could actually care less and my 6 year old literally wants to kick his ass, I decided to appease my lame editor (and nice one) by writing a somewhat (for now) local piece.  Latest report is LeBron left his porch light on all night.  People aren’t sure what to make of this.  Leaders are scrambling to conduct an emergency meeting to investigate.

It’s so hard for me not to vomit on my keyboard while writing about James.  “Thy worst NHL game is better than any NBA game, no?”  said W. Axl Rose.  But it appears to be more important to so many in this city than curing cancer so here goes…….

Why Lord Stanley will Keep LeBron out of Chicago.  It’s simple really.  There’s nothing LeBron can do to cast his shadow over Chicago sports legacies.  Brad Seller’s notwithstanding (i don’t even know if I’m using that word correctly,) Chicago is full of rich sports history that even thy King is not fit for rewriting.  Think about 21 year old Patrick Kane winning his first cup in a city where I’d argue that in spite of Michael Jordon, the Bulls are third, maybe 4th, behind the Hawks, Bears and Cubs.  (sam am I correct?)

So back to the reasons in no particular order:

  1. Walter Payton.  I loved that movie where he died.
  2. The Hawks……Jonathan Toews 22, Kane 21, will continue to be the toast of Chicago for years to come.
  3. Michael Jordan, Scotty Pippen, and those other guys who have 6 rings each.
  4. The kid who caught the foul ball.
  5. The Fridge. Led the way for fat guys to get touchdowns in NFL.
  6. Da Bears.  Ditka and McMahon
  7. Blues Brothers
  8. Ozzie Guillen

    "Now, take me to JAIL!"

    (when he actually murders someone, he’ll move to first for certain.)

  9. The Chicago Wolves, because they are hockey.
  10. Bob Earl “Butterbean” Love.

The list goes on and on and on.  If you’re searching for immortality, you need to make it happen, not stack the deck.  LeBron in Chicago, NY, LA, or wherever he goes, is about as interesting network television.  If he doesn’t win, it doesn’t matter.  And if he win’s in those places, it matters less.

Is the world cup still on?

Love,
Rocque

It will happen. Cleveland will win a Stanley Cup before any other major sport's trophy. While we admit we are not hockey bloggers that take themselves seriously, we do expect that ESPN hockey coverage needs challenged. It's time people take hockey seriously, and it ain't happening here. Great hockey, stats, scores, highlights. Um no. LOL

    Did you confuse the movie “Brian’s Song” where Brian Piccolo died with Gale Sayers telling the story with Payton in #1…haven’t heard of movie with him dying as of yet.

    Yes indeed, I did. But I would imagine they would both be great movies. So does it really matter? Thanks for being a fan of dangeroushockey.com. Spread the seed. RIP Bob Probert

    Hey there I simply want to drop in and say thank you for the insight in this post. I mysteriously wound up here after following up on a bunch of celeb exercise stuff over on Google… guess I managed to get kind of distracted! Regardless I’ll be returning in the near future to look at your posts down the road. Kudos!

  5. I¡¦ve learn some excellent stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot effort you put to create the sort of fantastic informative web site.
