"Rocks In My Bed"

Best Jazz song title I just found out through it playing on the MusicChoice Jazz channel. :D
The Buttugly Uniforms Revisited

Something I have not realized until I read Jes Golbez's latest Hockey Rant...

"As CasonBlog mentioned in my comments, Team Sweden deserves major kudos for sticking with their traditional uniforms and rejecting the Nike crap the other teams were wearing.

Nike, stay the hell out of hockey! You might know basketball, but you don't know hockey, and your 'jerseys' suck ass."

That, the fact that the team who won the Gold was also the one who shunned Nike's "jerseys", *really* should tell the said company something. But seeing as two thirds, if not more, of Nike's employees are from Mars, they probably don't give two sheds about such stuff.

*sighs* Speaking of aliens, I wish one of those big-ass ships from Independence Day would come and blow Nike and/or Reebok off of the planet. A little extreme, I know. But, the more I read, hear, and see of Nike AND Reebok's ideas for hockey jerseys, the more I start to understand various peoples' venom towards those companies.

Go Finland.

Win or lose, I will still hate Russia.

The team, or better yet, a certain member or two, NOT the country.

I don't know whose getting the Olympic gold would make me cringe more: Chris Chelios OR Ilya Kovalchuk.

And in all honesty, I just needed a good reason to show off this: .
(A belated) Happy Ron Francis Day!!

As of my writing this, yesterday (February 23rd) was Ron Francis Day in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada...

Later tonight, at the game vs. the Windsor Spitfires, the Soo Greyhounds will honor Ronnie AND induct him into the Sault Ste. Marie Hockey Hall of Fame.

Edit: Ok, I keep looking back at the Soo Today pages to watch for the pictures being uploaded...and well, there are two I just couldn't help but wanna caption...

R-Diddy is NOT having a wonderful time.

(off-camera) "Ok...who let him have the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Sweet Cream and Calcium?! Stop laughing and wake him up!!"

And I don't have to be the only one having a wonderful time...feel free to add your own captions!

$108 For Nipple-Shaped Candy?!

Your call on whether or not it's work-safe...remember, it *is* only candy, afterall.

Even if the moolah is going to charity, I cannot imagine how many bags of Cadbury Mini-Eggs you could buy with $108 or greater. o_O

Try to top my record of three potential new anime characters with Peter Forsberg. C'mon, I dare ya.

It's Been Such A Bittersweet Day...

...I have had the best pool performance I've had since we got our Olhausen table this past Wednesday (Two balls in on a break, four balls sunk in a row, and a nine ball sunk on the break of a Nine Ball rack; as chronicled here).

But, my Mini Dachshund, Chaz, has hurt his back. :( My family and I don't know how serious it is...but, I get the sick feeling that it may be very serious. I feel like we ought to take Chaz to a vet immediately, as in right now regardless of it being Sunday. Unfortunately, we do not know of any vets or animal hospitals open on Sunday evenings around Bluefield.

I *really* hope that my feeling is wrong...
To Quoteth Sir Elton John...

Well, There You Have It...

Sexually stunning

'How" will you be defined in the dictionary?' at
Happy Valentine's Day!

AND, a "Happy Birthday!" to Sean Hill and John Forslund!!

Hey, the former may be a Florida Panther, but I still like him...and miss him as a Cane.

Fight Club: The Musical?

PG-13 warning for the language...but can ya blame them? I've never even seen or read Fight Club, and know that a musical version is taking it too far. Hell, I thought a fighting game was bad enough...

While Others Are Rambling About Operation Slapshot/"Wagegate"/Whatever You Wanna Call It...

I'm reading what has got to be the craziest theory regarding television ever conceived...'s so crazy, it is good enough to be the latest addition to my LiveJournal's Friends List.

Television geeks/geeks in general beware, you might want to be prepared to waste a little time before clicking on the above links.

Oh, and BTW, just so no one can accuse me of being braindead on the title subject...I offer Jes Golbez and Red and Black Hockey's takes on it, for they perfectly sum up my feelings:

Let the Great, Super Bowl Commence

Why am I tempted to call it the former? Well...

According to my Hartford Whaler yearbooks, the Seattle Seahawks were Ronnie's favorite team, at least during his Whale days. No, I'm not making that up...if any of you want, I'll be happy to scan a picture of a profile page from one of the yearbooks.

AND, as a lot of Canes and/or Pens fans know, Ronnie has been and still is quite the Steelers fanboy.

Brindy's A Better Person Than Me

If I were in Brindy's shoes, I am not sure I would have hugged Scott Stevens after his intentionally giving two of my former teammates bad concussions. But, I suppose that's just me...whatevah.

And let me also add that this New Joysey Center Ice feed is getting on my nerves.

Edit: This is too hilarious not to post...everything, even the Q&As, is worth reading.
The Buttugly Uniforms

Reebok has finally revealed their plans for the new NHL uniforms...

...and based on the comments, especially those from one Sir Bob MacKenzie, the unis sound/read like they may as well be from Mars.
