I joke a lot about my devotion to the lovely and talented Kim Pegula. It's a jokey narrative based on some kernel of truth -- she is a pretty lady, and, based on the two times I've met her, she is warm, charming, and engaging. (And while I can't be totally sure, I think she may also smell nice.)
So, that's my disclosure of bias.
Bucky is Bucky. And this right here is Bucky at his Buckiest.
First, he takes a backhanded swipe at the fact that Mrs. Pegula's no longer concerning herself strictly with women's work.
He says she's taking a more "aggressive" role, but doesn't explain what's more aggressive other than having a seat at a meeting. Of course, as a result of being physically present in the room, she has "a say." Evidently, Bucky and his source would prefer it if Mrs. Pegula kept her yap shut when she sits in on these meetings.
Her husband bought the franchise. While she may not be formally named as a co-owner (and I'm sure there are substantive legal and financial reasons why), the franchise is as much her property as it is his. So she elects to sit in on hockey meetings and help work through decisions that are being made. She apparently did the same thing at East Resources; that seemed to turn out okay for her and her husband.
JFC. The more I think about this, the more I can barely resist the urge to go the BN offices, find that fat ###### and finally plant one on his chin. (A punch. Not a kiss -- those I reserve for
Kim Pegula. And
That and I'm waiting for the inevitable sexism complaints that we are going to hear because of this one.
More than happy to oblige.
