Clark Gillies is the Chardonnay of Men, ApparentlyShareThis
I can’t help but laugh at this:
The NHL Alumni Association is selling wine. It appears they’ve partnered with “Ironstone Winery”, put the names of a few random NHLers on the bottles, and are giving an unspecified “percentage” of the sales to the charities of the players on the bottles. But that’s not the funny part.
Clark Gillies….. is on the bottle of Chardonnay?
How did they chose to assign guys to types of wine, comedic value? I love that their description of Clark as ”a ferocious competitor whose rugged play led his teams to win championships” is one of the first lines under “Clark Gillies: Chardonnay”. …Ooo, you beast, you.
On a somewhat related note, his charity – the Clark Gillies Foundation – does raise sizable chunks of money (recently gave a million dollars to a local hospital) and can always use your help. Forget “percentages” – check out the video about his charity here if you haven’t seen it yet, and feel free to donate… the money will go straight to helping children on Long Island. Also, I’ll give you a dollar if you don’t cry after watching it.
Marty Brodeur is the NHL’s all-time shutout leader, taking over the lead from Rollie Melanson. Or some other old goalie. On a somewhat serious note, the most impressive part about Marty’s career has to be his durability, right? 70-75 games a year at that high level?
So, whaddya think? Best in the history of the NHL? (By the way, can we really try to compare Brodeur to guys like Johnny Bower? What a wasted conversation that is. Let’s keep it apples to apples, not apples to no-mask-stand-up-goalies-taking-shots-from-guys-using-tree-trunk-sticks-on-roller-skates-in-a-completely-different-game.)
For the first time since Richards decapitated Booth, the Flyers played the Panthers. And thank god, the Panthers beat the stuffing out of the Flyers – four goals and four fights is a decent response to Richards knocking four months of Booth’s lifespan.
The Blues hung seven goals on the Oilers, exacerbating the misery that is being an Oilers fan in a year where the Flames don’t suck too.
The Coyotes won their seventh straight home game. A certain blogger is starting to think they’re good. How could he not? Have you seen their roster??
Congrats to Nate Thompson for scoring his first of the ye- … wait. So that empty net miss would have been his first of the year? *head in hands* …ho-ly shit.
That’s all I got for now folks – my brother is here, and since its the 22nd, we need to start Christmas shopping, dude-style. ….At Lowes. (Ratchet sets for everyone!)
