The good thing about brawling 10-year-olds is that you can stuff a whole lot of them into the penalty box. And there were a lot of youthful miscreants in hockey jail following this fight.
If you go to Australia, don’t handle the snakes — or just to be safe, don’t pick up any object, ever. Tragedy during a men’s field hockey practice on Thursday as a 26-year-old A-grade team captain removed a snake from the pitch and was fatally bitten.
Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith got played pretty badly by Canucks Daniel Sedin last night. Keith’s response was to chop Sedin in the back with his hockey stick. Classy! And what happened when Keith was asked about the play by reporter Karen Thompson after the game? He delivered an equally classy quip.
Spin-O-Rama shootout goal. Gustav Nyquist. It might have been illegal, and this is minor league hockey, but it is fantastic, regardless. If Gary Bettman ever discovers his soul, you may see this nice, spinning young feller on the Detroit Red Wings.
WHY DO LOCKOUTS EXIST?! WHAT’S THE POINT OF IT ALL?!
Your diehard hockey-fan friend has a large hole in his or her heart this holiday season. As you ponder what to stuff that person’s stocking with to ease the pain of the lockout, consider this: Mike Eruzione’s game-worn jersey from the 1980 Winter Olympics semifinal against the U.S.S.R. It would be a once-in-a-lifetime item to have and it’s up for sale. Unfortunately, you definitely can’t buy it.
The NHL is pretty much the sad sack of the four major North American professional sports leagues and this ditty won’t make you think otherwise. We all know from the second lockout in seven years, but how widespread is it really? Players, coaches, teams, fans — they’re all losing out. But the puck doesn’t stop there (get it?). It stops at beer.
Ice hockey is a girly man’s game. Why? Because while those pansies play on skates, these dudes play on unicycles. And they do it to epic orchestral music. And it’s German. Seriously, what’s not to like here?
Some brilliant YouTube user (Logiano1) combined hyperexcited soccer announcers with memorable hockey sequences. The result is GLORIOUS. Why this isn’t how all hockey games sound, we’ll never know. Do yourself a favor and watch.
The Civic Arena, known affectionately as The Igloo, was home ice to the Pittsburgh Penguins for 43 years. But when the Pens finally moved across the street to a new arena in 2010, it was time (after some long legal battles) to say goodbye. It took nine months for the arena to be completely demolished, but this time-lapse video gives us a sweet half-minute rendition of that demolition.
One of the most heartfelt and fantastic videos to ever hit the Internet comes to us courtesy of Chris Rumble, a 22-year-old cancer patient from Kent, Washington. Rumble was diagnosed with leukemia in April, and during his time in the Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Hematology Oncology floor, he was inspired to create a music video by his hockey team, the Wenatchee Wild.
Fellow patients, doctors, nurses and family members all helped in making the video, which serves as a message of hope to those who need it. More details after the jump.
