    Picture Of The Day: Kiss And Make Up

    If only every hockey fight would end like this, perhaps there would be a lot less people asking to have them banned from the game. The one thing many of us will always remember most about Brad May is Rick Jeanneret’s famous “May Day!” call after the Sabres’ tough guy scored the series-clinching goal in […]

  • Greatest NHL Player: Wayne Gretzky vs. Mario Lemieux (Infographic)

    Greatest NHL Player: Wayne Gretzky vs. Mario Lemieux (Infographic)

    Who is currently the best player in the NHL?  Such a question would likely bring about a few different answers.  While most would opt for Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, others might deviate from the norm and say Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos, or maybe even Henrik Sedin.  It is not an easy choice, but what […]

    Identical Twins (GIF)

    Many hockey fans believe that Daniel and Henrik Sedin have an advantage on the ice because of a special sense they both share as twins.  To justify their argument, some have pointed to this unbelievable goal that they manufactured together at the end of last season.  It is hard to argue that there is not […]

  • Hockey Player Scores Soccer-Style Goal

    Hockey Player Scores Soccer-Style Goal

    Sure, the World Cup may be over, but it appears as though some athletes in Switzerland are still caught up in the soccer fever that plagued their nation throughout the entire summer.  One of those athletes is the young Silvio Schöb, who had this soccer-style hockey goal for us. I know parents these days want […]

  • Prince of Wales Trophy Engraving Error

    Prince of Wales Trophy Engraving Error

    Nobody expected the seven-seed Philadelphia Flyers to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup. I’m not even sure they believed they’d make it to the playoffs, needing a late-season run and an OT-winner in the final regular season game to clinch. Then they surely couldn’t believe they’d make it to the third round. […]

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

    Picture Of The Day: Advertising At Its Best

    This is smart advertising. A zamboni advertising Gillette Fusion Power has an actual giant razer scraping the ice as the driver zambonis the ice. What do you call a Gillette Fusion razer zamboni’ing the playing surface at a hockey arena? Shaved ice  (cue the drums).  Seriously, good work by the mad men behind this one. […]

  • Is This Puck-To-The-Groin Reaction An Over-Reaction?

    Is This Puck-To-The-Groin Reaction An Over-Reaction?

    I would hate to call someone’s reaction to a groin-shot an over-reaction.  Being a male and all, I can sympathize with any man who has been on the receiving end of a ball, puck, or anything else to the groin.  However, this guy’s reaction is unlike anything I have ever seen before. So what was […]

    Fierce Competitors: 9 Awesome Animals Playing Sports

    This is a really boring time of year for sports. Baseball isn’t quite in a pennant race. Football is in training camp. Hockey players are shaving their beards and basketball is months way. So what’s a sports fan to do? Hahaha who said WNBA? Good one. That was funny. Points for that. In this slow […]

    Picture Of The Day: Justin Bieber On Ice

    It is good to know that should Disney ever be interested in performing a “Justin Bieber On Ice” show, Biebz will be ready to go.  No skating lessons required. Being Canadian, it should come as no surprise to hear that the popular pop-R&B singer and teen heartthrob has spent some time on the ice during […]

    Sidney Crosby Shoots Some Field-Goals At Heinz Field (Video)

    With the 2011 Winter Classic set for Heinz Field, members of the two competing teams gathered on the gridiron to shoot around some pucks.  But rather than aiming for the nets, which is what they’ll be doing on New Years Day, Sidney Crosby, Max Talbot and Pascal Dupuis of the Pittsburgh Penguins, along with David […]

    Mom Breaks Up Mites Hockey Fight (Video)

    Two little guys, teammates no less, square off in what was bound to be the best fight between mites in the history of mite fights. Unfortunately, their mother stepped in with her damn punishing tone. Little Mazza gets inexplicably pushed to the ground by one of his teammates as play around them continue on. It […]

    Picture Of The Day: Player #666 on Yahoo’s roster is…

    I knew Boston was full of Massholes, but I never knew they were touting Satan, too. That’s right. Miroslav Satan, a right-wing from hell, plays for the Boston Bruins. Yahoo also decided to have fun with the name by placing him 666th on their list of players (see the URL). As you know, 666 signifies […]

    Henrik Zetterberg’s Wedding Photo Is A Little Odd, To Say The Least

    What you will find below is not a black-and-white version of Where’s Waldo from the 1920s.  Instead, it is a picture taken from the pre-wedding party of Detroit Red Wings’ forward Henrik Zetterberg.  The Swedish superstar tied the knot with gorgeous Swedish television star Emma Andersson in what many described as one of the country’s […]

  • A Cat Playing Hockey Drives Me Crazy

    A Cat Playing Hockey Drives Me Crazy

    Put a video up on YouTube of cute kitty cats and you’re bound to get thousands of views, links on prominent blogs, and resounding respect. But I have a serious problem with this video of a cat lying down and serving as a hockey goalie. For starters, I’m not sure PETA would appreciate a cat […]
