If you were watching your Twittertron yesterday, you saw this tweet come over the wire late in the day:
@walsha: Bill Daly's thoughts of NHL fans = uninformed ramblers on Twitter
Well, guess what? He's right.
We are uninformed ramblers on twitter, tweeting away our ideas, thoughts, hopes, dreams, desires, wants and conjecture as the summer drags along with no sign of a season starting anytime soon. And you know what? That's OK. We are allowed to be ramblers.
Any group that is passionate about something, but doesn't have access to the behind the scene view, or enough information to draw actual facts from WILL RAMBLE. They will ramble a lot. It's what people do, and it's totally ok. If you DO see behind the curtain, it is your responsibility to correct the misinformation that you can, and to never publicly state that you think the people drawing those conclusions are morons. It's just good sense.
This is a sticky issue for me personally, as I spend my days behind the man behind the curtain for work and the person who can't see behind it at home. I try to keep a balanced focus, but the fact is, I'm going to come up with some pretty horrendously off base conclusions that I will end up stating publicly. It's just how it is. I know that, and while I might not like it, I accept it.
So ramble on, ramblers of twitter. Keep those smoke stacks of conjecture going. In a season of mis and dis information, it's ok to draw the wrong conclusions. Just try to stay calm about it, ok?
