Don’t **** With Zdeno Chara

I haven’t followed the Boston Bruins much since they got rid of my boy Joe Thornton, but I know they acquired Zdeno Chara and subsequently signed him to a free agent deal. And this much I know about Chara: he’s 6’9″, 251lbs, and he’s 100% Czech. Oh yeah, and if you mess with him, bad…Read More

Stanley Cup Goes to Pink’s Hot Dog

We all know how the Stanley Cup goes to each player of the Cup-winning team for a day. Well, the Ducks won it, and low-and-behold, it appeared on the front page of the LA Times on Thursday. Chilling at Pink’s Hot Dog in Hollywood. How tight is that? The Pink’s website boasts it’s a family…Read More

Go to London, Watch Some NHL

File this close to the NFL heading to London section. Only difference, at least they play hockey in Europe — just not London. Right, because if your sport is struggling in your country, why not go to another country and see if it catches on, right? For those of you dying to get your hockey…Read More

Daniel Briere Signs With Phillies

Why not, they could use the offensive production, right? Those filthy devils at fark were at it again, directing me to this headline (which has since been changed).

NHL Denies Al-Jazeera Media Passes

The NHL may be begging for publicity, but at least they have limits when it comes to whom they let cover the sport. One such media outlet that failed to make the cut for Stanley Cup credentials was Al-Jazeera. Al-Jazeera has no one at the Stanley Cup finals, its credential request having been turned down….Read More

Gary Bettman Explains the Switch from NBC to Versus

The commish joined Mike and the Mad Dog as a guest on WFAN on Monday and took quite the beating. The hosts were peppering him with questions — namely, why was the plug pulled on the Senators/Sabres game that went to overtime? Well, turns out that regardless of what the wrath and scorn of the…Read More

Yes, That’s an Octopus on the Ice

For the second time in a matter of days, I was asked by someone with whom I was watching the Ducks/Red Wings series, “what’s that on the ice?” At that point it hit me — many people don’t realize the tradition of fans throwing an octopus on the ice after a goal, or towards the…Read More
