I find it weird. You write this article, and it doesn't have any "Chicago Rules!" or "Canucks lick my sweatty balls/Tampon twins are fags" and you get zero comments. I'll admit the article is a lot different from your other articles as this one has less flexibility to add your opinions since you are simply showing someone else's interview answers. In any case, I just found it odd. Because I read this article after reading the article that you wrote for Game 1, which had tons of reader comments (even minus the hate-comments by myself and other Canucks fans). And I'm not saying I know you or I know what you want, and you can grill me on that all you want, but if this sports journalism thing is what you're after in the long run, I would think about the fan base that you attract with your writing. If you want to eventually do this for real, like for ESPN or whatever, how much would they appreciate a guy who can only conjure up some a reader's response when the illustrations to his articles include a picture of the Simpsons' aliens as a representation of the Sedins....But hey, if you're doing this for fun and could care less who's reading it as long as the hits to your page is giving you ad revenue, power to you.
