The NHL Awards are on tonight!
It’s the hockey fan’s version of the Oscars: Boring, not funny, and nobody that you want to win is going to. Still, I’d watch it over the Oscars any day.
I haven’t been a fan of the Oscars since I was a teenager, but at least they don’t leak the winner of the biggest prize. Sure, it was an annoying foregone conclusion (I wanted Evgeni Malkin to win, but I assumed it would be Ovechkin), but there was at least a chance it could be somebody else.
Last year at about this time, Interchangeable Parts set the standard for awards-show-watching with their diary of the 2007 NHL Awards. As a result, I have vowed never to watch another awards show that they don’t diarize.
Although they might be on a slight TiVo delay, along with me (and really, who isn’t on a slight TiVo delay?), Schnookie and Pookie will be making the NHL Awards show worth watching again tonight. Come on by and hang out with us!
