I had, like, three posts lined up before this - even one about how I'm really bad about consistently blogging. But after last night's Pens/Islanders gongshow, I had to post now. The whole game was just a disaster for both sides (I've seen enough Friday Night Lights episodes to know that winning by a lot doesn't make you a success), but the one thing that has my blood boiling right now starts around the 1:30 mark of this video:

Now even though I'm beyond loyal and completely biased toward the teams I support, I try to remain neutral when it comes to judging right or wrong in the sport. Fortunately, Trevor Gillies actions last evening allow me to side with my boys.

I had to look up Gillies' age to make sure he wasn't an 8 year-old with a strange ability to grow a mustache. He's not, he's 32. So really there is zero excuse as to why he not only shot Eric Tangradi an elbow to the head but then proceeded to taunt him after Tango is clearly hurting on the ice.

Are. you. serious.

All I have to say is that Gillies should be embarrassed and ashamed of himself. Actually that's not all I have to say, but what I do have to say is not suitable for public consumption. Grow up. There's nothing remotely professional about what he did.

Can't wait to boo you the rest of your career bud.
