The Wings once had a rivalry with Colorado that mattered, so I guess they might consider them a top opponent. They once had one with Chicago, so there’s that too. I think they might even consider St. Louis a rival. Regardless, I don’t think they’ve historically had you very high on their list of teams they’re concerned about.
Why’s that, you ask?
As per @aportzline, the Columbus Blue Jackets have NEVER finished within 20 points of the Detroit Red Wings. “Was 59 pts one year!”
Last night the Montreal Canadiens clinched a playoff spot by beating the Buffalo Sabres 5-1 but who cares because Steve Ott licked Jeff Halpern’s visor at a face-off. Let’s focus on what really matters here.
Not really sure what to do with this, so I’m just going to present it and get out of the way. It happened. I suppose maybe it was some agitator-y attempt at being annoying? I dunno. I’ll slowly back out of the room now.
At the under-18′s this year (division two), Lithuania gave up a short-handed goal to Great Britain with 32 seconds left that put GB up 3-2, which would end up being the final score of the game. That’s a frustrating way to lose.
So, naturally, a Lithuanian player whipped his stick helicopter style at a ref.
I don’t know if it was intentional or not (the “at the ref” part, I mean) – I’m leaning towards yes – but either way, that just happened. Remember kids: displays of anger and ref-blaming are key parts of the sporting culture, and it’s important to look at players like this as role models.
I did not expect to put this picture in a post when I woke up this morning.
I swear that this is not an April Fools’ Day joke. This is just too damn weird to not make a post on.
So, hands up if you’ve seen Baby Geniuses or Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2? I see very few hands. Okay, fine. The Baby Geniuses series are two of those movies that probably only has notoriety because the Internet exists and would likely be a long forgotten footnote of a film were it not for the meme-ification and weird, pseudo-ironic enjoyment that comes from horrible things. The original is #74 on IMDB’s Bottom 100 list and the sequel is currently ranked #4 while also, to this day, remaining the second worst movie Jon Voight ever made. Actually, that’s not even close to true. Does anyone have a weirder IMDB page than Jon Voight? See you for Baby Geniuses 5, dude.
