This Shit Sucks
It’s always been a point of pride for me, to be a hockey fan. I’ve always seen the sport as a step up from the rest of the professional sports in North America: players just a tad bit classier, fans just a tad more evolved, and games that much better.
As players of other sports find themselves making headlines for spousal abuse, brandishing weapons, and indictments on drug use, the NHL players are working on making the sport a pro-gay place, coming together for player safety, and all around improving the sport. http://dlvr.it/24y81q #upthepucks
Don’t Even Think About Calling This A Defense
Hey! What a complete and total shock! A guy who’s nothing but a bonehead out on the ice said bonehead things on an uncensored talk radio show! Geez, what is it with you people and attacking Cam Janssen? Yes, he said some truly awkward things that the New Jersey Devils probably didn’t want attached to one of their players. And yeah, it was uncomfortable to watch and listen to some of his jokes but you guys are really missing the genius moment in this interview. I swear I’m not being sarcastic in any way with this last statement. Pinkie promise. http://dlvr.it/1rm1f7 #upthepucks
Book Buddies Review Brad Richards’s Nude Debut
It’s time for the yearly Body Issue published by ESPN Magazine. They call it an exhibition of the finest athletes in sports, I call it the one time of year hockey isn’t forgotten about (HA! you thought I was going to be dirty). It’s true. So often the NHL is brushed to the side for other sports and as an NHL fan, I feel kinda shafted. The hard working men end up being ignored, but once a year the NHL is featured, in its naked glory. http://dlvr.it/1r0SbG #upthepucks
