TORONTO ON — Feeling the onset of another headache, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet’s ’31 Thoughts’ column finds solace in the fact that at least now he has some answers as to what’s causing them. During the sports shut down his brain became accustomed to having fewer thoughts all the time but now that a new hockey season is upon us, the thoughts are piling up faster than he can get them out. Evander Kane filing for bankruptcy added 31 thoughts alone and that’s before any player had even touched the ice. If you constantly have thoughts coming in and you’re only allowed to release 31, eventually it’s going to catch up with you. Sportsnet is considering changing the name of his column to 64 thoughts but that is just putting a bandaid on a bullet hole says his doctor. “He needs to be able to release as many thoughts as he needs to clear some space,” the doctor told us in a Zoom call. One consideration is calling his column Umpteen Thoughts or something of that nature. They are currently in negotiations and we will have more on this story.
