New USA Today: Why I support the “statement fight”
New Puck Daddy: The learning curve of being a rookie, and why some start to get it figured out around now. Frankly, I like the column’s point, not the writing. Anyway, this Thursday I’m writing a follow-up to last year’s “Coyotes have no fans cause they’ve always sucked” piece that was so controversial. Should be fun, totally different stance after living here for 16 months.
The highlight of this year’s NHL season might be my favourite highlight from any season, ever.
Bobby Ryan scored a goal using Miko Koivu’s stick.
YEAH. Now THAT’S a thing of beauty. How likable does Ryan seem? That line is like, three shades of human – good, neutral and evil (Perry).
First, let’s watch again – it takes awhile for the commentators to figure out what really happened…..
It’s just such wonderful karma.
Apparently after the game, Koivu said something along the lines of “we were both without sticks, so we ended up picking up each other’s,” instead of the more accurate “I lost mine, so I stole his, so he picked up mine, and buried a nice one-timed rebound goal.”
Good triumphing over evil. I just can’t get enough of that play. Awesome highlight.
So, I’m starting to feel carpal-tunnel-y, and it’s getting frustrating - excuse if the blog posts aren’t as long as usual. Check out my columns though, and I’ll do my best to keep the blog updated better throughout the week!
