Well, slap my wrist and call me duly chastised

Associated Press and Lexis / Nexis report:

The NHL has fined Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis $100,000.00 (U.S. currency) for his actions involving disgruntled fan Jason Hammer (go Hammer; go Hammer – U Can’t Touch This!) last Sunday night following yet another Caps home loss.

Of course, this is the monetary equivalent of you or I giving a quarter to those guys with the “homeless” signs on the freeway off-ramps.

Added bonus: my off-topic HTR pet peeves:

1.) People who don’t bother to check their spelling, grammar, and syntax.

2.) People who vote for their own articles – really, nobody cares if you’re a “5” or a “0”.

3.) People who report what other sources have said verbatim instead of summarizing. If you spelled the rest of the article wrong, and three parapraphs in the middle sound nothing like you, it’s a dead giveaway.

4.) Morons who contribute nothing but lame “cuss words” and keep changing screen names in a vain attempt to find the recognition they will never achieve in the real world. One Howard Stern is more than enough, thank you.

Other than that, I love you guys (and girls), but you’re still not getting my Bud Light.
