God Bless You....Charles Wang!

God bless you, Charles Wang! I thank the Lord for you!

No, not for what you've done for the Islanders, but for the service you have provided to the hockey writers establishment - especially us online bloggers. I have nearly 753 questions as to why you pulled off this deal, starting with "Why didn't you do it sooner this summer?"

You have kickstarted a somewhat dormant blogger industry.

"Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this. . . and totally redeem yourself!" - Jeff Daniels to Jim Carrey, Dumb and Dumber

You have done for us what the Clinton/Lewinski scandal did for late nite talk shows and comedians worldwide in one gesture.

Have a cigar!

Everybody's talking about you, man. The blogger traffic will quadruple and newsprint will be eaten up.
You are killing so many trees, you ought to make a donation to rainforest preservation.

Please keep us guessing as to your next move. Where can I buy that ventriloquist doll of you and Garth?

Pretty much every blog I checked out in the past 24 has an analysis of the DiPietro contract. I got a call late yesterday afternoon alerting me to the news.I jumped on my comp faster than Hugh Hefner with a fistful of Viagra on a playmate.

By nighttime, the news was everywhere. Tapeleg at Jerseys and Hockey Love was on you. Zandstrom at Waiting For Stanley was already slicin' and dicin'. Sleek was all over you at Battle of California. Mirtle and Kukla got in on the act within minutes.

I'm dying to hear comments from Neil Smith, Pat Lafontaine, Ted Nolan and Bryan Trottier, not to mention Mad Mike Milbury himself.

Keep up the great work Mr. Wang, our rubber check is in the mail!

I am rewriting the lyrics to the Gilligan's Island theme song in honour of you. I will post it soon as it is complete.

I will be sure to e-mail GM Snow at this address: , to further the other 751 questions I have. Hope he's not feeling too deluged these days.
