Thanks to the Blue team, getting a good coach in the NHL is going to cost a great deal more. Over $50 Million for 8 years? Hopefully he can get a Stanley Cup for 2017 (50th anniversary of the last Blue Team Cup victory). For all those other coaches out there, I guess “… a rising tide lifts all boats…”? Who will coach the Red Wings now? Paul MacLean going to come out of hiding? I do remember that the last Coaching Messiah was Pat Quinn, then there was Pat Burns, hmmm… well, good luck Mr. Babcock (and can you use an old Man Friday?).
In other hockey money news, the Sens rewarded the Hamburglar Andrew Hammond with a 3 year one way deal as well for about $4 Million dollars. Seems like the Sens now have a glut of goalies, someone will be taking the Via Train out of town soon (is my guess). Hope these folks have some solid financial plans to save this money.
Glad to hear that CPP is now worth $246 Billion dollars, that means I can live on low ash cat food when I finally retire (OK, I have a real pension, but I am allowed a little dramatic effect sometimes).
If you thought you were having a bad day, think of poor Li Hejun who lost $15 Billion on Wednesday, are they somehow implying that the stock market goes down? I suppose this means he had to be worth at least $15B before Wednesday ?
My Writings for Week Ending May 22nd
The Mad Men finale was fine by me, wrapped things up nicely, and I got to sleep in the next day, because it was a holiday, so nothing to be grouchy about there either. A short week for me, but I did manage to get two articles done:
- The 10 minute rule with money is one of those articles I started about a year ago, but couldn’t figure out where to go with it, luckily I found how to make it sentient.
- I keep comparing debt to things, I have previously said Debt is Like Fat, but this time, as I had been weeding my front lawn, I stated that Debts are like Weeds.
