Oh. My. God.

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press says that the US Olympic team will not include the Lightning's own Ben Bishop. I think I speak for all of us when I say:

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???!!!!!

I mean he's sooooo cute good! He leads all American goalies in every goaltending category: GAA, Save percentage, Shutouts, Wins, and Post-game Hugs.

How could this happen?! HOW?! Tell me, David Poile, HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?!

How can you leave off the best American goaltender that ever played? Are you so blinded by your Western Conference Bias that you can't see what's right in front of your face?

Ben is so wonderful and so totally deserves to be the goalie for the Olympics.

I mean, his teammates love him.

Even opponents are desperate to be close to him:

It's a terrible tragedy, I tell you. A cosmic joke and further proof that everyone hates the Tampa Bay Lightning.

And all you people acting like this is a good thing, because he'll be getting "rest" and "not injured," you know that's not true, since everyone knows he spends his off days rescuing puppies from burning buildings. And I think a fire's, like, waaaay, more dangerous than hockey.
