Much Ado About Nothing: The Capitals’ Scoreboard

Does this really matter? Seriously?

The Washington Post reports that the Washington Capitals have changed their scoreboard, placing the visiting team’s score on the left side and the home team’s score on the right side. This is a reversal from how they’ve always reported it. In fact, most teams place the home team’s score first and the visiting team’s score to the right. Capitals’ majority owner, Ted Leonsis, explained the change was intended to comport with how the media reports scores.

I have to ask, why is this such a big deal? Seriously, why does this matter? We live in a time where people insist on complaining about everything merely for its own sake. I submit to you that this is an example of that. Stop complaining. It’s just a scoreboard.

I’d rant some more, but there’s already been far too much attention given to this issue by its mere existence.

Lighten up, Francis.
