The Dispatch Does It Again!
By: Jeff Little • November 29th, 2008
Our local scribes are at it again. Today’s CBJ coverage proclaims in the subhead that “Bluejackets tie it three times . . .” Very nice, except it’s WRONG! Voracek scored first, Detroit then tied it, went ahead on their second PP goal, we tied it with Tyutin’s first, they went back ahead with the awful goal at the end of the second, and we tied it with Tyutin’s red line special.
While the article correctly places the loss at Pazzy’s feet, where are the mentions of Russell’s play, Huselius hitting three posts, Chimera’s effort (and open net miss at the end), and of the much better looking point play with Tyutin and Russell???? More coverage of Ovechkin today than of the CBJ.
The fans deserve better coverage. Did Tom Reed actually watch the game, or just catch the highlights on NHL Network????
And people wonder why I get on the local paper about their CBJ coverage . . .
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
