Ducks Gameday: 3-on-3 is Just As Stupid As the Shootout

New, 6 comments

Look what you did. Coyotes @ Ducks.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone demanded a solution to the pressing problem of too many shootouts that sullied the name of our hallowed sport. A skills competition is no way to decide a game you all cried, clutching your blankies.

Look what you have wrought.

We've replaced 4-on-4, the overtime of the people, with 3-on-3, a god damn skills competition so that we can avoid the skills competition of a shootout, and on Monday against the Canucks we suffered through both fucking skill competitions before a winner was declared, you insufferable pricks!

If you wanted to insist on 3-on-3, why not start with 4-on-4 and work our way down to 3-on-3 if necessary? Or better yet, forget about 3-on-3 and just extend the 4-on-4 overtime period by another 5 minutes? I just want good, honest overtime back.

Or what, you want to go back to ties like some sort of fucking Europeans or something? Shameful. Just shameful.

Happy Birthday, Cory!

That dude who you were introduced to when he wrote Monday's Ducks gameday post turns 21 today, holy shit. We're hiring tiny babies to write for us around here. When Cory was born, Ian was making his first 401(k) contribution (Angy was cashing her first 401k withdrawal).

Anyway, everyone wish that idiot a happy birthday and buy him a drink or whatever.

Gameday

Coyotes @ Ducks

Prediction

The Ducks never win again (lose in a shootout).

Inspirational Music

To take up space in my gameday posts this season, so that I don't have to write so much, you'll be getting a glimpse of my playlist while I write this garbage.

Today I'm listening to: Earlimart - "We Drink on the Job"

What Cory has to look forward to now that he can legally buy booze.
