Lolcow (n) – A person or group of people laughed at for actions that they take, despite not trying to be funny. They may try to take themselves seriously, but they are often “milked” for laughs with or without their knowledge.

In the world of hockey, there is no team that perfectly epitomizes frustration and futility like the Calgary Flames. A team that boasts a great squad on paper, but is never able to translate it to a successful on-ice performance. However, if you look past this hair-pulling façade, you will see something more sinister with this organization. Look into the situation of strong-arming and passive-aggressiveness a city into investing in a state-of-the-art arena… when the arena they play in doesn’t need to be replaced. Hopefully this video teaches you… something.
