Our Thoughts Exactly

By Finesse

Everyone knows by now that the Pens and Caps will be featured on the HBO series 24/7 leading up to the Winter Classic on January 1, 2011.  It's amazing how quickly this announcement and the subsequent interviews with Caps' players reminded me of how disturbing their inferiority complex is.  Eric Fehr and Mike Knuble apparently believe that the Caps will be more interesting than the Pens on the show, which would have made news if anyone cared about Eric Fehr or Mike Knuble.  Mike Rupp, classy as always, had the following response:
"I think we're naturally more interesting. I think they might have to try a little bit. If they want to do that, I think the great fans of HBO will figure that out quickly."
First off, this show is going to take the Pens-Caps rivalry to astronomical heights.  Second, Rupp's quote is fantastic, but maybe Fehr and Knuble have a point - the Caps could be more interesting than the Pens.  After all, no one cares about a train that gets to its destination on time...we only care about the ones that end in a fiery and disappointing crash.
