Ignorance and Apathy Personified

This one goes down under "Cheap Potshot of the Year" - though it could also go under "Bite The Hand That Feeds You" department:

NHL Still Isn't Must-See TV (Ian O'Connor, Fox Sports).

The people at FOX must have this huge chip on their shoulder for the NHL since their lovely "glowing puck" went over like a lead balloon. It's bad enough that ESPN poo-poohs the NHL at any chance they can get, but this is even worse - considering that FSN's various regional entities cover NHL hockey on a regular basis.

I'm not going to dissemble this thing here, since Eklund has already done a great job on his blog. But boy, talk about ignorance meeting apathy.
