Just because I don’t blog about sports much doesn’t mean I’m not a big sports fan. I just think there are other guys out there that do sports way better than I could. So this is a change of pace.
Montreal Canadiens Max Pacioretty gets hammered by Bostons Zdeno Charra. Now there is a report that there is a criminal investigation into the hit. Charra was given five-minute penalties and ejected from the game. Ok maybe the penalties are warranted (I’m not so sure). But a criminal investigation? Not so much. I looked at the hit a couple of times and it looked like Pacioretty just flat-out hit the pole head first. He doesn’t appear to have even seen it coming because he makes no effort to duck it. Unfortunate… yes. Criminal? My verdict… no. Without the pole it would have just been a rub out. I hope Pacoretti makes a full recovery. Opinions???
