Everything I Ever Needed to Know...

...I learned from watching hockey:

Closing one nostril and blowing out the other is a perfectly acceptable means of clearing your sinuses • Justice isn’t blind - referees are. • I really do want to drive a zamboni! • When yelled at an opposing player, “XXX, you SUCK!” is an insult. When yelled at your own player, it’s a term of endearment. • Girls like hockey, too • It’s not a mullet, it’s hockey hair...and it’s damn sexy • No one likes a tattletale. • Mascots are just adults in goofy costumes trying to eat people’s heads – and that’s why they’re scary • The good old hockey game is the best game you can name...and the best game you can name is the good old hockey game • Communal water bottles = flu epidemic • It’s a hook, but it’s a dive too • $8 beer tastes as crappy as the kind you can get for $2 at the grocery store, but you’ll never admit it. • There are only two kinds of cups that matter...and neither should be run through the dishwasher • Teeth are overrated • Fighting is a perfectly legitimate means of discussing the issues of the day...unless you’re in the stands. • Fear the visor • It’s always the other guy’s fault • Kansas City would make an excellent home for a hockey team • You can never have too many goaltenders, defensemen, or bloggers • Stay inside the trapezoid • There is nothing cuter than a kid in goalie equipment • The only good thing about having low attendance is that you have somewhere to put your coats • There is no better trophy than the Stanley Cup.

Happy Friday!

That also applies for $9.50 beer.

Cute!

Personally, I've noticed two refs are twice as blind as just one.

What were you doing up so late?

"It's a hook, but it's a dive too."

Oh, Hewy. Who could have guessed a seeming random audio clip would be so popular?

Shelby: Hahaha, I'm glad someone caught that one! I know anyone who lives outside the metro area probably saw that one and thought ...? Maybe if Comcast didn't insist on playing the same commercials over and over and over and over and over again... ;)
