(Ed. Note: As the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue, we're bound to lose some friends along the journey. We've asked for these losers, gone but not forgotten, to be eulogized by the people who knew the teams best: The bloggers and fans who hated them the most. Here is 2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning Eulogy writer J.J. From Kansas of Winging It In Motown, fondly recalling the 2015-16 Tampa Bay Lightning.
(Again, this was not written by us. Also: This is a roast and you will be offended by it, so don't take it so seriously.)
BY J.J. FROM KANSAS (@JJfromKansas)
We've come to the very second-to-last of the Eulogies. The collective vitriol of millions of sports fans gathered to roast the last of these losers.
It's my job to give the Lightning the treatment they deserve.
Well here you go. Here's the treatment the Lightning deserve: a one-paragraph footnote on the dynasty discussion for the Chicago Blackhawks year the Leafs won the draft lottery.
Good job failing to stop that, Tampa.
(This guy couldn't even carry a gaze, what chance did he have of continuing to carry the Bolts?)
So there's my eulogy.
A gift to you, fair readers of Yahoo and a gift to future eulogy writers for the Lightning.
Please take it all in.
Enjoy the moment.
Are you ready?
Here it is:
Maybe by the time you have to go to work roasting this franchise in the future, enough people will care about them for it to be worth it. If you went all four three rounds without rooting for the Lightning at least once all, you're a bad person.
