Thoughts on culture, education, and having been a Canadian in the US

This made me laugh…

On a day when I’m truly mourning the loss of Ryan Smyth, I caught this snippet from a USA Today article on Brett Hull that Paul Kukla posted on his excellent Kukla’s Korner blog:

“You need to have some sort of pregame or postgame show so we can sit down and talk about the trade deadline — or the Buffalo-Ottawa (brawl),” Hull says. “I have a lot to say. But in 20 seconds, you have to be some sort of English lit professor to do it with any style or bravado.”

Uh, gee Brett, thanks for that. Well, um, I don’t know, I think most all of my students would tell you that, more often than not, it usually takes me more than 20 seconds to say… What? Time’s up?! Darn.

On a more serious note, Smyth deserved way, way better than this.

I don’t find any beauty in a fast speech. I was always irritated by people talking fast and loud. And interrupting one another. Good joke, though.
