“Foppa Experiment” Over In An Instant

According to the Avalanche Facebook page, Peter Forsberg will be holding a press conference today at 2:30pm MST to announce his retirement from the game of hockey.  I’m sure there will be a myriad of questions to answer, but here is what I would like answered:  WHY?

Why did you come back, all Favre-ish, just to abruptly decide against it?

Why did you think that you could become an all-star in only 2 games?

Why did you decide to get the entire Avs Nation excited for absolutely nothing?

I bet the Avalanche ticket sales sky-rocketed when the thought of Foppa playing at Pepsi Center became a reality – and now that reality is gone.  Maybe the organization should offer refunds to those who bought tickets just to get a glimpse…  Yeah right…

What a joke…

Maybe, now that the “Foppa Experiment” is over, the Avs can actually concentrate on playing the game and post a few in the WIN column.

Oh yeah – Happy Valentine’s Day, Avalanche fans.  Hope your hearts aren’t too broken…
