Self-Portrait 3
I, for one, am desperately hoping that the cancellation of the 2004-2005 NHL season means I'll be able to pick up a few hockey jerseys on the cheap. Beyond that, I don't particulary give a shit.

Here's a bootleg copy of the source code for EA Sports "NHL 2005":

10 REM
20 REM *** EA Sports
30 REM *** NHL 2005

70 PRINT "Processing"
80 REM
90 REM *** This routine provides an appropriate delay
100 REM
110 FOR W = 1 to 1000000
120 PRINT "."
130 NEXT W

That is terribly amusing.

But to me, not as amusing as the fact that EA did put out an NHL 2005. I also like that the first line of the promo copy bills it as "the most authentic and complete experience for hockey fans around the world". Indeed, sir.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit to see guys playing this on ESPN at some point this year.
