Today's hockey tip

Let's see ... put round thing in net more often than other guys?

Pause briefly, though, to note the passing of another journalism tradition. Thursday's paper (the first of the week to arrive in the driveway in corporeal form) had the playoffs in the same spot: teaser above the 1A flag. But it teased to a feature, noting that if you wanted the score, you could bloody well look online. That was for a game that ended around 12:30 in the ayem, and we're less than two miles from the nearest Motown checkpoint.

I'm usually among the first to say that sports gets far too big a share of journalism's zero-sum resources (money, space, time), but -- come on. You can't drop a replate into the final when the home team is in the playoffs?
