Growing Up In Thunder Bay.

Earlier, one of our readers suggested a reality show of the Staals growing up in Thunder Bay and I found some toddler video of them as youngsters! You can totally see Jordan in the middle taking control and slapping Eric and Marc around. But they hold their own for a bit and Marc totally comes […]

The Finnish Flash Drops The Gloves During Final Freeway Face-Off!

Last night’s game against the Kings wasn’t exciting for me since they lost and looked lost on the ice especially when Captain DT. Brown went out for a bit with a sore ouchie. (not minimizing his pain, just borrowing BB’s explanation for hockey player’s injuries) The only bright spot was an interview with Kopitar from the sidelines with Heidi […]

Foxy Friday: Shawn Thornton

Shawn Thornton is a bad-ass. Plain and simple. Not only will he pummel you to a juicy pulp like Tropicana, he’ll then turn around and score some sicky goal top shelf like he was Sidney Crosby or something. Some other reason why Thornton gets this week’s honor? He took time out of his busy pugilistic endeavors to […]

It could be a lot worse. We could be from Philly.

Wait?  Is that Sidney‘s head they are burning in effigy??? We don’t like that.  Especially Pants. “Get your damn hands off him,” she says. The photo above accompanied a blog post entitled “GQ ranks Montreal Canadiens fans among the worst in sports”.   The Habs fans, aka the Frostbitten Hooligans, ranked 11th on the list and […]

Mind Over Brain Matter

So to quote many a hockey player and coach, hockey is 90% mental and 10% physical. OK – I’ll buy that for a hot second since it was regurgitated out of Kris Letang’s luscious mouth recently. (I’m paraphrasing him more intelligently.) Where I am I going with this? Is it me or are many teams […]

Project Mayhem

In baseball, players get to choose the song that plays when they come up to bat.  Sometimes they have a different song for each time through the rotation.  Since you can’t play a song very time someone jumps over the boards, we thought we could give them another anthem: fight songs. My brain goes immediately […]

Cheap Trick

It’s been a wild week of fights in the NHL and we’ve been loving it.  Then something like this comes along.  People always argue about fighting in hockey.  I’m confident that those who know and love the game understand and respect the role that fighting plays.  But it’s like Russian Roulette and sometimes, you get […]

Boston Garden aka The House of Pain

I’m exhausted. Last night’s Canadiens/Bruins game was epic.  The craziest 60 minutes of hockey I’ve ever seen.  Seriously.  Ever. Every game between these long time rivals is emotional charged but this was ridiculous.  Ridiculously AWESOME.  I started to write this post last night, but was too emotionally exhausted so I went to sleep to collect […]
