Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Following a franchise-record 10-game losing streak, the New York Islanders today fired head coach Scott Gordon.

An unintentional underlining to this painful move came via the team’s telecommunications system:

Perhaps it was appropriate that Lady GaGa‚Äôs “Bad Romance” played before the conference call announcing his firing began.

I‚Äôm sorry that Gordon had to lose his job (although he will remain employed by the Isles as an advisor). But I‚Äôm glad that a certain hockey blogger is on the NHL‘s media list, and so was in a position to pick up on this pop-cultural coincidence.
