(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.
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.
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!
