Dean McAmmond Injured by Dirty Hit: News Breaks on Yahoo & Google
Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Most people who know me, know that I have a passion for hockey. Always have always will. Since I was seven years old, my favorite team has been the Edmonton Oilers. I grew up in a small town in Alberta where one of the local heroes is a friend of mine and a friend to many who live in Grande Cache. Yesterday evening as I was checking some of my sports feeds, I came across the story that my friend Dean (McAmmond) who now plays for the Ottawa Senators was seriously injured on a "questionable"hit ... actually I would change that to a downright dirty hit by Philadelphia Flyers hopeful Steve Downie. (A player who has already earned the rep for being a dirty player).

I have posted my thoughts on the Downie hit on Dean McAmmond over at PlanetNim. The fact of the matter is that the hit was gross. It made me feel ill when I saw the highlights. This could possibly be a career ending injury for Dean.

Only minutes after the game was completed, I was able to go online (not knowing about the incident) and through my various sports feeds was able to get up-to-date news about the incident that happened only an hour earlier. That is what I call relevant results. Surprisingly they came from Yahoo. YouTube also had a clip of the incident although the clip does not contain the fisticuffs that ensued after the hit from Downie. I was surprised at the coverage by the search engines. Of course bloggers would be picking up on the story, but the time in which the engines were able to disperse the various results amazed me. Google News for example featured a ton of posts and articles about the incident. It is easy to see why the search engines are the first place a reporter goes to get up to date information when writing a story.

To Steve Downie. You're a joke. This wasn't the first time that you have used lack of judgement. Hopefully it will be the last. In the past, you've fought with your own teammates, you've thrown a number of dirty hits. Maybe hockey just isn't for you.
