At Least It’s Not Football

Well, hockey fans, there’s good news and there’s bad news. Let’s start with the bad: Remember Niklas Hagan? We traded him two seasons ago? Well, he’s scored nearly as many points for his current team, the Dallas Stars, as our entire roster put together. Ouch.

Here’s some more: Tonight, the Panthers play the Hurricanes. Those rascals from Carolina are a take-no-prisoners group of mercenaries on skates. If the Panthers don’t play strong from start to finish, prepare for total annihilation. But neither of those issues are the real atrocity that we must address, no. The integral dilemma of tonight’s match comes from a fan blog, who asserted that the snacks lines at BankAtlantic Center (2555 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise) are slow and lengthy. The horror. You can take our talent, you can take our pride, but please, Powers-that-be, do not take away our God-given right to speedily-served, overpriced concessions. It’s (sniff) all that we have left.

On a brighter note: The Dolphins are playing worse than the Panthers. Our boys on skates may tire easily, but they aren’t the bottom-feeders of their division. The Zamboni abandons the ice Monday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $17 to $262. Visit
