Phil Kessel Put U.S. Hockey in a Body Bag
I’m not going to pretend to tell you about United States hockey. It’s a complete mess. I’m not sure why they let John Tortorella do this kind of thing. He’s made some bizarre decisions that even I as an outside hockey fan know is completely screwed up. This happens in international play in all sorts of sports. Tom Watson, one of the best golfers in the world, was one of the worst Ryder Cup coaches of all time. Torts isn’t some great coach in the National Hockey League, but he has absolutely no fucking clue what he’s doing out there. Torts is the real life version of the meme of the dog sitting at a computer.
Phil Kessel put the cherry on top with U.S. lost to Canada throwing the ultimate shade. Who knows why Kessel, a good Olympic player and got on a hot streak in the Stanley Cup Final, isn’t playing. Good news is the Olympics are two years away so the U.S. has two years to clean it up.
