V is for victory

Those of us outside of Calgary certainly don’t believe Darryl Sutter is any kind of crook. He is the type of coach you want to ensure that they forge on, because we all know that a team is not defeated when they lose, they are defeated when they quit. He hates the summer because he hates golfing.

He knows that by the time you get ready, drive out there, play 18 holes and come home, you’ve blown seven hours. There are better things to do with your time. He ranks hockey as chief among those things.

He can take anything because the tougher it gets, the cooler he gets. He became that way because competitive sports builds the will to win better than anything else.

You can’t get him angry because one can only be angered by those that they respect.

I guess what I’m trying to say here is, Darryl Sutter reminds me a lot of Richard Nixon in that picture.

  1. Cue LMFAO for:
    Every day I’m Shuffling
    Suttering shuffling
    Every day I’m Suttering

    Time for my followup to http://www.CanuckStruck.com?

  2. Um… I would note the orientation of the hands. Normally the palms turned away from the body and two fingers extended are seen as a sign of “peace” or, in more enlightened times, “victory”. When reversed, however, our cousins in England would tell us that it means something different. Quite different.

    All I would say is that Mr. D. Sutter may not be very appreciative of his audience when that photo was captured.
