Sippin’ On A Coffee | No Role Modelz

Look around you...

For some reason, the urge to put a plop of almond milk sweetener in this once perfect and untouched coffee has thrown me off this morning.

It isn’t the normal start I am accustomed to.

Yet here I am typing away and carrying on with the July 2nd that I must say looks oddly similar to the “Canada Day” we had yesterday. Maybe gloom should be a sure add when putting together the word bank to describe, pardon my language, 2020.

Maybe.

Maybe I should just start talking about hockey. Again, this morning has been confusing in its first 132 minutes. I apologize for my tardiness...

It is what it is.

Now that’s a good look

Give the Minnesota Wild the number one pick.

The state of hockey deserves the best in a country where the most entertaining sport in the world is sometimes the 5th or 6th option.

Yes, sometimes the 6th option.

And yes I know, what type of idiot wants an inner conference team to be rewarded with a franchise player? Who are you to wish upon another city receiving their wishes? Why are you so kind @kylebhawan? Do you not remember that nice humans finish last?

Well Bob, to keep it brief. I for one am not scared of losing the opportunity to add a lottery pick to the fold due in large part to Quinn f*cking Hughes and Elias Pettersson already calling Vancouver Home. You all can live in fear while I put my faith in my city not being humiliated by the worst team in the dance.

Also, Minnesota is a hockey hotbed yet they’ve had so few stars. Alright, I said a few and can only muster up one. Marion Gaborik. Look, they have earned this lottery to go their way.

MLS > NHL?

I do believe these 30 dollar glasses of mine still do the trick.

First ESPN, and now we have Bleacher Report pushing the NHL down the entertainment list. Ahh, what a disgusting tweet.

Could the addition of a franchise player to the home of American hockey give this boost this league needs to overtake Major League Boredom and company?

As with most questions of such obscure magnitude. Who the f*ck knows? The National Hockey League just can’t afford to be placed underneath Major League Soccer.

They ain’t getting better

Again, you don’t want to be humiliated by the worst team in the dance.

Jackson with the “hammer”

So if the Canucks lose the Wild, the city of Vancouver will never hear from @kylebhawan again.

The stakes have never been higher.

No Role Models to speak of

Searchin’ through my memory, my memory I couldn’t find one. Last night I was gettin’ my feet rubbed.

Thank you to non-reader & extraordinary MC J-Cole for whatever the above is.

Anyways, not all of those who grace the worlds lens, let alone 18 goal scorers, should be looked upon to set the tone for what is right or wrong in our world.

Take it a step further and run away from the screen. Then follow it up with looking at those around you who may need some of that guidance. Start there instead of trying to make examples of humans we don’t really know. We don’t have time for that “type” of virtual mentorship. Especially in 2020.

Yes, especially in 2020.

Listen to the latest episode of Sippin’ On A 40 where the Network discusses Athletes being Role Models + more.

What a sluggish performance

Is that all @kylebhawan?

I guess so. Remember, the coffee was complimented with that almond milk sweetener bullsh*t. My fingers and this brain of mine are caught in the middle of a cobweb and they seem to be content.

It is what it is.

To make up for it, let me introduce you Vancouver’s very own, Mcevoy. One of the more brilliant musicians from this grand city of ours.

Enjoy and one love Couve. Yes, Couve. That is what the kids are calling it.
