BlueLINES for BlueSHIRTS! August 19th – Apologies Are In Order For Avery


And by apologies, I mean from myself. Yes, I was one of the many who pointed the finger at Sean Avery and his arrest before knowing the full story. After re-reading the article initially reporting the arrest, I discovered this beauty of a line:

All the facts haven’t been presented but the one fact remains Avery put his hands on a police officer.

Great job of being fair, objective, and accurate don’t you think? But, it could have been worse. At least I didn’t falsely accuse him of his actions AND call for a sincere public apology. I wonder what well-known beat writer did that…

But I digress; here are your Rangers headlines for today.
