I woke up this morning when my radio alarm clock was blaring out some very depressing news. Last night the Trenton Golden Hawks played their first pre-season game, losing 3 - 1 to the Wellington Dukes in Junior A hockey. I'm not depressed because the Golden Hawks lost, I'm depressed that it's only the 20ieth of August and I already have to start hearing about hockey.
Already? We just finished the Stanley Cup playoffs in June. Don't get me wrong, I like hockey well enough, but this is far too early. Can't they just let us enjoy our summer? Why do we have to take a good thing and dilute it down until we are sick of it?
