Look, I’m in agreement with you: “_____ing,” in regards to some damn pose an NFL quarterback made or makes frequently is a terrible, awful trend. First there was Tebowing, then there was Griffining, and now there’s “Kaepernicking,” which is to kiss your right bicep after scoring a touchdown, (and yes, Colin Kaepernick DID get the term trademarked, don’t worry). Us average folk apparently like to mimic these motions when we do well at average stuff, like successfully blending a smoothie, or whatever.
All that said, I do sort of appreciate Logan Couture throwing a little love the way of his fellow athletes in California by Kaepernicking after scoring against the Oilers last night. And hey, when you’re undefeated after seven games, you’re allowed to have a little fun.

Okay, one and done, cool. Let’s just not make a habit of this.

Buffalo Sabres’ teammates John Scott (6’8″, 270 pounds) and Nathan Gerbe (5’5″, 178 pounds) are, as you may have noticed from the numbers, slightly different heights. This is adorable.
Not quite Manute Bol and Spud Webb, but it’s gotta be as close as hockey’s gonna get.

If you’re a fan of the New York Islanders, it’s unlikely you’ll enjoy this post. For the rest of you, well, you may get a little chuckle out of it.
First off, a disclaimer: in my opinion, Rick DiPietro and his contract have been subject to more than their share of abuse. It went from funny to almost mean – you have to feel bad for a guy who has luck so bad that he just can’t stay healthy enough to fulfill his potential. We don’t know what his ceiling was going to be, but we do know that he certainly would be a better goaltender than he is today had he been able to play consistently. I hope he’s able to pull it together going forward.
While perusing his Getty Images pages today for another post I was working on, I couldn’t help but notice an alarming trend about the photos on the first page. You need an account to look at it, so I thought I’d share the pics with you to see if you can spot the trend. Please note, these are all off the first page of his 43 page account. The man’s had a tough few years. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the best Twitter feeds going these days is that of Sports Illustrated’s Andy Gray. His feed uses the handle “@SI_Vault,” and he has access to all the amazing pictures the magazine (and now website) has taken over the years. Truly a must follow.
Yesterday he led with this tweet, and I was PUMPED:
Oh god that’s a scary photo.
And predictably, he came through in a big way. The following tweets and pictures are what he shared yesterday, and obviously, property of Sports Illustrated. I just provide a little commentary. Read the rest of this entry »
