DK is at it again killing management at every level. IMO his major beef here is with Kyl Stark, but why not kill Nutting, FC, NH, and CH for it.

The Pens went to West Point for training about 5 years ago and it was praised. The Bucs bring in Navy SEALS and its laughable? Its all perspective based on circumstance. DK is letting his frustration spill over in odd ways.

He has lost it IMHO...his glass is below half empty...oh and by the way, the SEALS working with the team is a Team building exercise, pure and simple. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Now that's a rant for you.

Everything he wrote there is true. As usual though, he takes all of his points way too far and makes sweeping conclusions to fit his whiny narrative. My man needs to stop rage-writing. It doesn't suit him well.

I've grown tired of his writing style. It mimics Plaschke's way too much in that it contains a lot of one-sentence paragraphs. It's indicative of someone who did not take much time crafting his article, and it's exhausting to read.

I often wonder if DK is as mercurial about everything else in life as he is about the Pirates. I'm picturing those old SNL skits where a family would be sitting at the dinner table and every conversation would lead to Will Ferrell screaming, "I drive a Dodge Stratus! People are afraid of me!"

On a side note, the labeling of SNL episodes featuring Will Ferrell as "old" is quite jarring. How would you characterize SNL episodes featuring Martin Short or Dan Aykroyd?

:) He's been off the show for 10 years now. That qualifies as "old" in TV time.

What's jarring is watching Aykroyd-era SNL episodes now. The pace was so much slower, the timing wasn't as precise, and the "plots" were so much more simplistic. It was light years ahead of what else was on in that era, but it would be hard to convince a young person now of how groundbreaking it was.

Not necessarily true. While on a recent road trip with my wife and two oldest daughters, we streamed several old SNL clips. The kids were rolling. One of the funniest was when Richard Pryor guest starred and interviewed with Chevy Chase for a janitor position. Chevy used a word association game that quickly took a racial turn, eventually landing Pryor the job, with the highest pay of any other janitor and a vacation to start his employment time. Oldest daughter had tears streaming down her face. They also loved the Coneheads skits, "Hamburger, Hamburger, Pepsi Cola" skits and Screaming Deaf Translator.

The Garrett Morris "Black Lawn Jockey" skit is timeless and hysterical.

You want a devisive issue - lets discuss how funny Chevy Chase was. I absolutely loved just about everything he did from 1975-1990ish.

Those sketches hold up pretty well.

I got grounded when I was 9 years old (1979) when I was discussing something with the neighbor girl and I said to her, in a perfectly even tone: "Cindy, you ignorant slut ..."

Yeah Aykroyd was damn funny too until the 90's, he always could play the perfect B guy in a film.

"What's all this talk I hear about Jimmy Carter's penis farm?"
"Uh....Roseanne, that's PEANUT farm!"
"Ohhh....that's very different.....never mind."

"Would Richard Hertz please approach the bench."
" Is Richard Hertz in the courtroom?"
"Does anyone know Richard Hertz????....who's Dick Hertz?"
All the men raise thier hands.
