Strange things are afoot in Long Island. As many of you know I'm a bit of a hockey fan. I was reading yesterday that the NY Islanders fired their General Manager, Neil Smith, after only 2 months and replaced him with..... their back-up goaltender, Garth Snow. For you non-sports fans such a move is akin to the owner of a large corporation firing his CEO and replacing him with the janitor or Jack from the mailroom.
I've got to see if I can find the transcript of the press conference when these announcements were made. Garth Snow announces his retirement as a goaltender immediately before being announced as the team's new General Manager. It just seems rather amusing to me. I'm not sure but I'm guessing his first task will be to find a new back-up goaltender (someone he could possibly groom to double as his assistant GM?)
That being said, considering how bad the Chicago Cubs stink this year, maybe they should fire Dusty Baker and promote their bat-boy to manager... He certainly couldn't do any worse.
