When I actually hauled my sick butt out of bed this morning to walk the two feet to my desk (two very long feet, let me tell you), I got on the Twitter machine to the newa that, low and behold, Coach Dale Hunter is now EX-Cach Dale Hunter. He said a lot of sappy stuff about family first and how he’s a dad, husband and son first, yadda yadda he’s going back to coach the London Knights. Well, ok then. I’m not really surprised, honestly, he just didn’t seem like the kinda Coach for the Caps long term.
Now that the most unsurprising breaking news ever has been delivered, the Caps have a mission. Whether they choose to accept it or not (they’d better, buster!), to get a Coach. Preferably hockey oriented and sassy.If worse comes to worse, I can see Ovie doing a Reggie Dunlap. But come on now, people, we need someone with a big sass factor who can do commercials and is no stranger to giant cup holders.
Now, I personally have no idea who’s going to be the Caps next Coach or who is being considered, but his qualifications should include;
-Fluent in english and sass
-Knows how to work a ref. Screaming is optional, but welcome.
-Good facial expressions, has to be able to sell it.
-Gives great sound bites during pressers and sasses the press (sass is mandatory)
-Partakes in so bad they’re good commercials (I need Hadeed!)
-Owns more than one suit. And tie.
Can GMGM fulfill these hefty guidlines? We shall have to wait and see. Until then, let us reminace the awkward half season of Dale Hunter era hockey and prepare ourselves with open arms for our next (opefully longer term) Head Coach!
