|This Beak is Made for Walking|
(Nancy Sinatra, 1966) Hah!
Last week the news broke that RJ Umberger had asked for a trade. OK, first and foremost, wherever Barry Trotz is hired, that's where Umby is going. OK?
AND, you know you are a local hero when the DKM fellows seranade your nose. At that point you know you have it made in the local fan base.
Now that we have the preliminaries out of the way, it's time to process the whole thing. First off, Professor @OhioHockeyDog, my essay response (scroll to bottom of article for the essay assignment) will follow. As a basic 'sad fan boy' (Puck Daddy, 2014), it's very difficult for me to think like a General Manager. It helps to have a catalyst. Umby asking for a trade is a great catalyst to start thinking about how you will make this trade. So as a blogger, I'm grateful to Umby for some off season content.
As a fan, I think he is a no-good, traitorous cur; or a hero.
