Take That America Jr.!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

I don't want to cause a commotion that shakes the very foundations of the sports blogosphere or anything, but there was a monumental shift in the world of hockey last night. That tremor you felt came straight out of the heart of the buzzing metropolis that is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at ...

Foppa Finds Spot on Team Sweden

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

If there's one thing we're looking forward to around here it's the upcoming Winter Olympics in Vancouver. It is going to be sweet. The luge. Curling. Bobsled. Ahhh the frigid good times. One of the best parts is the hockey tournament. Lots of nationalism and what not. Team USA as the ...

TheBaker Picks Team USA’s Olympic Hockey Team

Monday, December 14th, 2009

I know hockey is a niche sport. But if you can’t get excited about Olympic hockey, then I question your sports fandom. It's the best Olympic team sport out there. Far superior to basketball, which is basically a three-team tournament (and that's only a new occurrence). On paper, the United States ...

Candice Swanepoel Bikini Picture Brings the Links

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Apparently Candice Swanepoel has never slept with Tiger Woods either. So that's two women that we know about. A Tiger Woods-related Hitler video? You know I'm linking that - Outside the Boxscore No more lime-green Seahawks jerseys - No Guts, No Glory Brian Kelly is your new coach at Notre Dame - South ...

Link Dump! Brought To You By What I’m Watching On TV Right Now!

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

That's right, I'm watching Maury. This is way better than pictures of hot chicks, right Phillips? Northwestern v. Illinois at Wrigley Field? Yeah this makes perfect sense - Midwest Sports Fans Could this be just a hint of a sign that "Da U" is back? - No Guts, No Glory Personally, I think ...

This Might Be the Most Ridiculous Shootout Goal Ever

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

This is perhaps the best shootout goal I've ever seen. It's so nasty I'd like to see Alex Ovechkin try it out the next time the Capitals are in a shootout. Seriously. I'm not even sure he could duplicate it. But that man actually doing it is a Swedish fella by the ...

Fighting May Be Seeing Its Last Days in the NHL

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Very soon we may have seen the end of fighting in NHL games. Believe it. In their annual meeting, NHL general managers proposed rules changes that would result in fewer staged fights (right off a face off, for example), stiffer penalties for instigating with fists after a clean hit and would ...

Let’s Randomly Talk a Bit About Hockey’s Next Big Thing

Friday, January 9th, 2009

This is kind of like ESPN the Magazine's NEXT series or something. But it's more random and freewheeling. I've just decided to spout on about hockey's current version of, say, LeBron when he was still in high school. This young man's name is John Tavares and he's considered a front runner ...
