What a wacky month its been at FLApanthers HQ. Wacky year in general. Fire like 30 people, bring in a new staff, flip the team over to make them totally analytics based, fire the fan favorite coach, become old school hockey enemy number 1, and then have your owner become Secretary of the Army. It’s not crazy by any means given the military background Viola imposes on everything including this team, but just making this season more of a circus act than it already was is just crazy. Stability is something we’ve wanted for a long time and it felt like we had it by the end of last year and now it’s all up in the air again. Like we thought it was bad when Jeffrey Loria steps in mid season to fuck around with the Marlins. Well Vinnie Viola stepped in to mess around with the player personnel, and now President-elect Donald trump stuck his fingers into BB&T center and is messing around with Vinnie Viola. Some how this is gonna trickle down and effect with the players somehow. Wish we could hear Vinnie say he’s rejecting the offer because he’s 100% committed to this South Florida Hockey Franchise, but we just know he’s gonna jump to represent the Army any way possible. It’s like in the guy’s DNA. And who knows how things will change. Shouldn’t be to crazy I don’t think considering everyone in that organization front office is hand picked by Viola so the direction should still be the same but don’t be caught off guard if half the roster is sent to fight in the Syrian Civil War and combat ISIS.

There’s A Lunatic Scaling Trump Tower Right Now

These are your inspired fans, Donald. Guy just hijacked an entire Wednesday and the side of a building because he wants to relay some “message”. It don’t want to be a mean guy calling him a crazy person but when you’re dressed in all black long hair covering your face like you’re the Crow or something, you’re a bit of a crazy. Its summer man, embrace some sunshine. Something tells me this is all one big Trump ploy, but if it’s real then this guy sucks. Whatever message you have i swear to god is not going to be important enough for anyone to care about. Short of a cure for aids, cancer, terrorism, hunger, It will not be important enough for you to disrupt the business and lives in or around trump tower. . It’s just a cry for attention, and even worse is it’s taking forever. Ethan Hunt scaled the Burj Khalifa in minutes. At this rate i can go to bed and if lactic acid hasn’t devoured his muscles yet, he still wont be at the top.

P.s- Terrible year for the Under Armour brand

Someone Wants To Let The Ocean Know “Hillary Is A Lying Bitch” By Writing It On Crabs

The Political race is close. Like neck and neck between Hilary and Trump. Well Florida is one of those swing states that actually mean shit for the elections because we’ve got an over grown population of idiots. Now I’m being totally honest. I’m not a registered voter. Does that make me a bad citizen? Maybe, but i wouldn’t stake my claim to any of these idiots. Trump probably wants me out of the country because of my eye shape and Hillary just panders to people and seems kind of like an idiot with the email leaks and shit. But say I was to decide to vote for someone. Perhaps I take a stroll through the beaches in Tampa or getting some seafood in Ybor. If I see random blue crabs making harsh statements like this, I kind of have no choice but to vote Trump right? Like on one hand these are the types of people these Elections are bringing out of the wood works. Trump supporters are crazy enough to catch blue crabs to get their propaganda across. But it’s almost so crazy that it’s so true that you gotta respect the message. Once the word spreads all across the bay Trump might just pull far and away ahead of Hillary.
