Cold Hearted YahooNews Journalist

Sports journalist Steven Psihogios writes:
Prior to the puck drop for Game 2 between the Capitals and Blue Jackets, Washington forward Brett Connolly was trying to be a nice guy. During warmups, Connolly was desperately trying to toss a puck over the glass to an adorable little girl who was seated in the front row.
Unfortunately for the little girl, the man standing in the row behind her had other plans. Connolly, visibly trying to get a puck to the little girl, had his efforts denied multiple times by the adult standing behind her. The man caught the first two pucks tossed over the glass and gave one each to the two boys sitting beside the little girl. Finally, after making it very clear who he wanted to have the third puck, Connolly lobbed it over the glass and it was promptly given to the little girl.
There is something seriously mentally wrong with YahooNews journalist Steven Psihogios.

He is angry the man standing in the row behind the kids - who probably was related to the children - gave pucks to two little boys. He makes it seem as if a growm man was trying to steal the puck from the little girl. The video clip, shows Connolly  trying to flip a puck into the stands toward the little girl. However, the adult male - probably a relative - was trying to get pucks for all three children.

Whats wrong with that?

Psihogios could have simply written - 'Little girl overjoyed at receiving puck'. He could also have  written 'Caps player gives children pucks'. Instead he wrote a quasi feminist article needlessly bashing a man and marginalizing two young children simply because they were male.

This is the same news organiztion that claimed both Patrick Kane (Chicago Black Hawks) and Evander Kane (Buffalo Sabres) were guilty of sexual assault allegations in 2015 and 2016 without having any evidence.

YahooNews sports journalists seems to determine right from wrong on the basis of a person's gender.

Perceptive. The pore oppressed girl. Probably didn't WANT a hockey puck from Mr. Chivalry.

The boys, OTOH, likely LIVED for their hockey team, and receiving a puck would have made their whole year. Also likely their daddy knew this.

The United Sisterhood of Amerika know better, however. NOBODY is gonna short-change their Precious Princesses. Or else.

Whatta country!
