A guy named Jason, the number 13, a helmet... holy god this STORY HAS EVERYTHING

This doesn't have much to do with anything, but I just thought I'd share one of the most sadly laboured and face-punchingly gimmicky ledes I've seen the Edmonton Sun run with in a long, long time.

Jason, the horror movie monster, wore a goalie mask on Friday the 13th and cut people into pieces.

Jason Chimera, the hockey player, wears a helmet, scored his 13th on Thursday, and is a little divided himself.

Ahem. Wow. Hats off to the Sun, I guess, for continuing to assume its audience has the intellect of a lobotomized six-year-old with reading cancer.

Anyhow. Back to... whatever!

Hey, dorks. You're taking a break for the goddamn paralympics now, too? Get back to work, you bums!

Yeah, the last post is dated to that period of ancient history when Roloson still sucked!
