Obscurity, Thy Name is Hockey 3

(Slightly belated) "Name That Obscure Hockey Reference" time, kiddies...which henceforth will be known as NTOHR, because that title is too long and I'm too lazy.

We'll kick today's contest off with entry #3 (provided by OFB's own OrderedChaos):

Three men are playing a hockey video game...

Man 1: I wish they still had fights in this game so I could bitch-slap Wayne.
Man 2: What? They don't have fighting anymore?
Man 1: Doesn't that suck?
Man 2: Why'd they get rid of the fighting? It was the best part of the old version.
Man 3:
I think kids were hittin' each other or somethin', man.

Man 1: Yeah, but you know what Smitty*? You can make their heads bleed in this one.
Man 2: Make somebody's head bleed.
Man 3: C'mon man, we’re in the playoffs.
*Name changed

Here's entry #4 - again, look for clues in the quote as to location and other hints that may help you narrow it down. And yes, I'm aware that they're picking on the Capitals. The one time they're mentioned in a pop culture reference and that's how they've been portrayed. Yay.

Man 1: You guys go out?
Man 2: John* had Capitals tickets.
Man 1: Good game?
Man 2: You know what I'd do if I... No, it wasn't. You know what I'd do if I owned a hockey team? I'd hire a sumo wrestler. I'd give him a uniform, transportation, 500 bucks a week to sit in the goal, eat a ham sandwich, and enjoy the game. My team would never get scored on.
Man 1: Your team would get scored on constantly.
Man 2: Maybe, but we'd sell a few tickets.
Man 1: Yeah, 'cause sumo wrestling sells out all the time in big hockey towns.
Man 2: My idea's totally unviable?
Man 1: Well, you're a Democrat. It's a pretty big club.

*Name changed

If you know both, great - if you know one, great. We continue until someone correctly identifies both (don't forget to identify the characters, too), so take your best shot!

I'll tell you, these get harder every day. The next round goes up at 8:23 pm EST tonight and I assure you its a toughie, so get those thinking caps on!

#3 is from Swingers with Vince Vaughn wanting to make Gretzky's head bleed. And Jon Favreau's character pauses the game to go pay the delivery man, Vince unpauses the game and makes Gretzky's head bleed.

Love that movie and love that scene!

CapsChick said...

I'm not going to say you're right, per se, but IF that's correct...what are the characters' names?

KMS2 said...

So I realize I didn't include the actual character names...let's see if I can remember.

Man 1 played by Vince Vaughn is Trent (always Double Down, always)
Man 2 played by Ron Livingston is Rob.
Man 3 played by Jon Favreau is Mikey.

Damn, nice one kms2. I knew I'd seen that movie but couldn't remember which one it was. As for the Caps one, I have no idea.

Hee. Thinking caps. We've got skating caps, not thinking caps. Get it? Ha. Not funny.

Shelby said...

Alright, I just cheated and found out the answer, but I won't say it unless no one else gets it.

Oh, google, how I adore thee.

Bitchany said...

Oh I give up...BLAH

CapsChick said...

kms2: I'll take your word for it, since I'm a loser and have actually never seen Swingers before - I'll announce you the winner of #3 pending any debate from the peanut gallery :)

Shelby: skating are funny. And are you admitting to CHEATING?? Desecrating the very name of NTOHR with your sneaky Googling??

...meh. Whatever works ;) But yes, hold off until later - I'll be posting another one tonight and if no one guesses #4 by then, feel free to show off your Google-loving ways. The rest of you, no cheating! (Or at least don't admit to it...silly...)

Bitchany said...

Oh I know #4 it's the West Wing Man 2 is Sam...I dunno Man 1 is JOSH!! I WIN

CapsChick said...

Yay! And Bethany takes #4 (nice new blogger name, by the way, lady!)

Okay, you guys are too damn good at this game. Looks like my timing couldn't be better to unveil the super-duper hard question...coming up later tonight!

Shelby said...

Bitchany got it! Or at least the show. I wasn't positive on characters.

You should totally see Swingers. It's a great movie. Hey, where are you getting all of these? Is there some database somewhere? (You can answer this later. LOL)

KMS2 said...

I'm a loser and have actually never seen Swingers before

WHAT!? you HAVE to watch it!!

Bitchany said...

Haha didn't notice my crazy hate-mailer?! He came up with it...and I love it!

CapsChick said...

kms2: I KNOW! Especially after you described the rest of that scene to me - sounds hilarious. It's going on the list of movies I need to see this summer to take my mind off hockey.

Bitc-, er, Beth: have a hate-mailer?? You're a blue jackets fan, who would hate a blue jackets fan?! You guys are like the Caps fans of the Western conference!
