A Manifesto of a Different Sort

Back in the 19th century, they really knew how to write a Manifesto. Here in the 21st century, however, the spirit of communism has been transmuted into neoStalinist revisionist criticism of certain hockey teams. Check out some academics with too much time, political theory, and hockey on their hands: Michael Berube, for the Rangers, and my pal Siva Vaidhyanathan, for the Sabres.

Since Berube celebrates the Rangers' freedom fighter Jagr, all good western Pennsylvanians are duty bound, I take it, to rally around the Sabres.

Who's your proletariat now, baby?
