White-Collar Hockey

I love this (LA Times):

'We have a lot of hard-working guys on this team,' said Cullen [of the Carolina Hurricanes], who has a career-high 20 goals. 'This is a blue-collar area. The fans appreciate that.'
When O when will someone say, "We don't like to go get the puck, we want it to be served to us, and our white-collar, upper-crust fans appreciate that."

Or, "We get the point of digging in the corners, but we're frankly too high to be bothered, and our stoner fans can really relate."

Or, "This is a blue-collar town, and so when all the players were laid off and replaced with less-skilled Chinese prison laborers, they really responded to it."
