Thursday Morning Cupcheck - Picking Fights on Twitter, Sidney Crosby Edition
Ever seen two white guys fight? Hilarious, right?
Good morning, hockey fans! Here's hoping you've been able to remember that hockey still exists during Dallas Cowboys Coach Appreciation Week. Last week we took a gander at the Dallas Stars at the 11-game mark; this week, we're investigating the build-up to last week's epic clash of Crosby versus Niskanen. While to the untrained eye, it may have seemed like a completely random event spurred on by a captain's momentary lapse of reason, the truth is far more sinister. Here is the first-ever look at the Twitter Trashtalking Fest 2010 that led up to this legendary scrap.
Pretty strong stuff there. Barch is probably glad he didn't get involved in that fistfest. Tune in next week when we look around the league at how former Stars are doing. Duncan Keith's understated role as The Turco Whisperer may surprise you.
