This was the response I came up with to a Pens fan (namely Holiday Park) who said that the Brashear hit that warranted a 5 game suspension wasn't half as dirty as Scott Walker's punch to Aaron Ward. He then made a comment, (and I'm paraphrasing) Carolina fans should get in their porch rockers and go back to whittling. I was going to respond on that thread but it was rather old and I wasn't sure how well it would fly over there. But this is for your enjoyment Caniacs...my response:
Your fellow Pens fans should ask you to stop. You're making them look bad. Brashear drilled a player who was innocently skating by, completely unaware of Brashear's bad intentions. He was a sitting duck. Aaron Ward had returned chest jabs from Walker, had his arms up, and was looking and jawing right at Scott Walker. Unfortunately, he wasn't quick enough to protect his face or move out of the way. It was a mistake by Walker and he immediately felt remorse when he saw Ward fall to the ice...Brashear kept skating after he leveled the innocent bystander that skated past him. Completely different.
As for your paltry attempt to classify and belittle people from North Carolina (which shows just as much ignorance in yourself as you purport us to have) let me just let you know that I have the utmost pity for you. Because when you try and classify southerners with the tired cliche remarks that all other pseudo-elitist "northern hockey fans" use, I know that in reality you're just plain miserable. Miserable that you probably have to wake up at 4 in the morning in your trashy suburban neighborhood outside of your ugly city where you commute to your miserable steel mill job so you can then come home and drink yourself into oblivion before you beat your mannish looking wife in between intermissions but still somehow sleep easy deluding yourself that you have it so much better than someone living in the south.
There...is that enough of a vague unrealistic classification of a broad and diverse people from a particular geographical locale?
I hope I made my point. I get tired of the NASCAR and deliverance jokes. If you wanna talk hockey, then by all means.
