Misty-Eyed Staff Writer Misses the Point Entirely

This Yahoo! Sports preview of tonight’s Capitals at Penguins game is less of a game preview than it is a brief biography of Mario Lemieux, who retired (again) yesterday, and won’t even be on the fucking ice tonight. Out of 700 words, 94 (13%) are spent in the last four short paragraphs covering the Caps’ half (50%) of the matchup.

Dear Yahoo! Sports copy-writer:

Leave the bullshit reminiscing to articles titled “A Brief Biography of Recently-Retired Penguin Owner-Slash-Player with Ongoing Health Problems Mario Lemieux”, not “Washington (17-25-5) at Pittsburgh (11-29-9)”.

p.s. You suck.
