NHL Quick to Change Rules for Playoffs

If you remember last year in the NBA playoffs, the inflexibility of David Stern resulted in the Phoenix Suns being punished for a rule that was interpreted outside its original intent (most likely). Robert Horry had cheap-shotted Steve Nash, Boris Diaw and Amare left the Suns’ bench, and the entire complexion of the playoff series…Read More

Championship Hockey Game Goes 109 Minutes, Eight Overtimes, Ends in Tie

Faithful LBS reader Denny was lucky enough to have been broadcasting Michigan Division 1 State High Championship game on Saturday. Marquette and Orchard Lake St. Mary’s (pictured together, above) dueled for 109 minutes on the ice, spanning eight overtimes, before the high school athletic association declared the two co-champions. The boos were abundant after the…Read More

Vesa Toskala’s Third Leg Stops Five Hole

Ohhh boy. Sometimes these headlines just write themselves. I was absolutely busting up like you couldn’t believe after seeing this video.

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
