History has been made. Today is a day that will go down in infamy. Other platitudes that people say when important things happen. We have officially seen the first inter-sport trade. Steve Nash has been traded to the LA Kings. What, you don’t believe me? It was on TV, it must be true. Not only was it on TV, it was on the Toronto-based, 24-hour news channel CP24, obviously the most reliable name in news. “But Jake,” I hear you saying, “this makes absolutely no sense. What kind of blog post is this?” To which I say, “pish posh, this is a blog post reminiscent of the great Cronkite blogs during the war.”

Seriously, it happened. Look

Personally, I can’t wait to see what this trade will do for the Stanley Cup champs. They’re already so strong in their front six and you have to figure that Nash will just add even more depth. I can’t wait to see Anze Kopitar spread the ice, taking stretch passes from Nash. And for all those scrambles in front of the net, Nash’s soccer skills could definitely come in handy. Skate to stick will never have seemed so fluid, so smooth, so Nash.

In a way, this could mean big things for the NHL and its future success in America. In another, more accurate way, this means nothing and is stupid. Clean it up, CP24.

In other news, I really want to know if they ever found that man they sought in that high-speed chase. North York is both too fast and too furious.

  1. Bob McCown just said L.A. Kings at the top of Primetime sports too

    • Good times. Though, to be fair, I’ve typed “Steve Nash” instead of “Rick Nash” like eight times today. The difference being 1) I know I’m an idiot and 2) I have a delete key and can correct myself.

  2. Rick Nash has been traded to the Lakers.In return the Blue Jackets get Kobe and The Lakers next 4 first round picks,Howson still not sure he got enough.

  3. I think it’s funny that during the playoffs there were multiple gaffs by LA based news networks in their ignorance of the Kings but when it comes to a Canadian network they are ignorant to everything but hockey. What a world we live in!

  4. Forget that, what about the ticker item? If something happened with the North York Rangers, shouldn’t it get a feature story on CP24?
