Last week's poll winner Joe Finley, top goon in the WCHA, didn't play this past weekend for the North Dakota Fighting Sioux due to injury, or at least that is what they want you to believe.
I think its more than a coincidence that Joe Finley had a week off and couldn't return to the lineup w/ an "undisclosed injury" when the opponent just happened to be the Wisconsin Badgers. I would venture that Joe Finley didn't play last weekend because of Patrick Johnson.
Its well documented that Joe Finley was owned by Patrick Johnson last season, likely on several occasions. Patrick said so himself at one point that he told the top goon that he was going to own him. What reason would I have not to believe Patrick? He's the son of legends in Wisconsin Hockey history and reminds us before each home game that "It's a great day for hockey!"
Joe Finley's lame acts are well documented from slashing Bucky Badger to auditioning for Dancing w/ the Stars in the post game handshake line w/ Blake Wheeler, former minnesota gopher.
A undisclosed person w/ the Washington Capitals (who regrettably own Finley's rights) had the following to say, "Drafting Joe Finley was the biggest mistake we've made since we changed our logo in the mid 90's. Wisely we went back to something that didn't suck, wish we could say the same for Joe."
While Patrick Johnson was not available for comment a random Badger fan added, "while we blew the lead friday night, we embarrassed them on saturday night in the 3rd period. That is nothing in comparison to how much of an embarrassment Joe Finley is every time he sees a mirror."
I don't think this story is quite played out just yet. The Sioux(age) visit the Kohl Center during the final weekend of the regular season, which could be an important matchup for the WCHA standings and NCAA tourney births. Between now and then, our blog will do its best to get you the real story behind the owning of Joe Finley by Patrick Johnson, and I guess we'll see if he is brave enough to face Patrick one more time in WCHA play before graduation.
Lastly for good measure, Sue is a girl's name.
