    Oh yeah. Trading barbs is unusual, but highly entertaining. Like he and Whitney in the vodka spots.

    It's hockey lockeroom "busting balls", minus the lockeroom.
    Gotcha. I like Biss a lot and hope he sticks around

Biss sat back in his chair. Appropriately dusted. If I'm Paul Bissonnete, the LAST thing I do is call out 99 on national TV.
    I don't know how serious this exchange was, but Bissonnete is known for being a goofball so it's possible they were joking around?

    Evander Kane suspended 21 games for violating NHL COVID-19 protocol.

    note: it took about 1.5 years to get my anxiety to a point where it didn’t control my every conscious moment.
    Thanks for sharing, jdh. I suffered with anxiety myself. Got better gradually as I got older and stopped giving a fuck about anything and everything except for my inner circle. Therapy and medication can be a lifesaver for many. We are living in the most anxiety-producing time in history. And people should talk about mental health as much as physical health, IMO

    Very cool for TJ. I hope he kicks ass. I wonder if it’ll be a shrimp line with DiBrincat or if they’ll kick him to the second line with, who? Toews?

Anxiety and insomnia can be major health problems for some. He said he’s been suffering for years, and despite that he’s a dynamic talent at the highest level. Imagine if he gets it treated effectively. I hope he does, just so we can see his full potential.

    An uncensored studio show on ESPN+ would be absolutely tremendous.

    I think Torts will be much better than Smelrose, he knows more about the game and the players. Only thing is ESPN better have their beeper ready in case Torts loses it, which might bring in more viewers.

    Yeah I am not marginalizing anxiety and insomnia, I think basically everybody suffers from it to some extent, with some worse than others. That is why I think if he had to take an a leave of absence in the middle of the season it had to be an extreme case, the vast majority of people get a pat on the head, given medication, and grind forward
