And why is he speaking in the third person.
Because Jose Theodore is out the door.
From the Denver Post (which is not the AP, so I can quote the story):
Talks between the Avalanche and Jose Theodore have broken down, and it now appears the veteran goalie will test the NHL open market beginning Tuesday.
Good. Don’t let the door hit you.
Oh, is that mean? Is that harsh? Whatever. He can keep on walking.
I’m embroiled in work this week, so my “analysis” (ie: reasons I ain’t crying) will have to wait until the weekend. But for now, I can not wait to write “Theodore has his usual meltdown,” and he isn’t in an Avalanche uniform.
Mind you, it isn’t July 1st yet, so he could still be signed. Oh, now I am sad.
