On the Ice, Not Every Fight is a Good Fight

On the Ice, Not Every Fight is a Good Fight

I’m a hockey fan, despite the NHL’s efforts to drive me from the game. I like the speed of the game, the competitiveness of the league, the athleticism of the men who play the game, and the violence. Yes, you heard me. I like the violence in hockey. I like contact sports. When I was […]

Everyone needs a little vacation time and mine happened over the weekend before Halloween. There wasn’t a lot to it — a few days at a quiet B&B, a minor-league hockey game, a couple or three nice dinners out, and a visit to the incomparable SuperMegaProducer Mike and the Take That Media Studios. SMP Mike […]

Here’s a good sports story for the weekend. Red Wings’ defenseman Niklas Lidstrom is a player of the type that comes along only once in a generation, if that. He is 41 years old, has been in the NHL for 20 seasons, still plays at an All-Star level, and tonight against My Beloved Capitals he […]

I Still Believe in Miracles: 31 Years Ago

On February 22, 1980 — 31 years ago yesterday — this happened. I still get goosebumps and choke up just a little bit every time I year Al Michaels exclaim, “Do you believe in miracles?? YES!” What I did now know was that the only reason Michaels was there was because he was the only […]

It’s always exciting when I bring on guests with whom I haven’t interacted, either in person or online, very much. There’s always the chance that they won’t be nearly as interesting in conversation as they are in their customary medium. I’m glad that wasn’t true for the two guests you’ll hear on Episode 69. Both […]

Forget the Canadiens beating the Capitals and the Penguins, the story of the Boston Bruins ruinous collapse will be the story of this year’s NHL playoffs. The pain Bruins fans are feeling today, after their team gave up a three-goal lead and then the game as Simon Gagne potted the game-winner late in the third […]

Forget the money, the hype, and the crushing playoff losses (Thanks Capitals!). Hockey is about passing along your winner’s dreams. You doubt? Tell me how many dreams are contained in this photo, via Greg Wyshynski’s Twitter feed. (Cross-posted at Liberty Pundits)

Those of you who follow my Twitter feed know I’m getting a bit of a reputation for live-tweeting the Capitals games (my stream is here, or you can just check out the #Caps hashtag to get the big fire hose effect during the games). Sometimes, though, something happens on the ice that defies my ability […]

I don’t know what part of this clip is more funny: how Thrashers goalie Johann Hedberg attempted to make the save or what happened to him after he blocked the puck. Puck Daddy summed it up very nicely, though. The only comparison we can make is when you’re putting on a shirt at an odd […]
