Holy smokes. Assuming that this story is more or less true – http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=287230 – the EA Sports curse came home to roost awfully quick, and in spades. The Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane and his cousin, accused of assaulting a cab driver over 20 cents? It’s simply unreal.
I would feel like my last blog was a heckuva “called shot”, except that the curse stuff was of course tongue-in-cheek.
What’s the best way to top off a crappy postseason? Well, if someone offers you a headlining gig for EA Sports’ NHL 10, you count your lucky stars that someone out there knows nothing about viewing or measuring performance. Or you could go the path of a pointless arrest.
You’d be looking for most players to be peaking, going into their age 21 season. Patrick Kane could be an exception.
**This would be the time to wonder who got the literal and figurative “black eye” in this episode.**
**I wish I could get a collector’s copy with Kane on the cover, but you’ve got to believe EA Sports is going to release with a different golden boy.**
