Dallas Stars heading to the Stanley Cup

Just my luck, the year the Dallas-based Stars, parent team to my Stars (my loyalty in the NHL remains with the Flyers) defeated the Las Vegas Knights. I think this is their first Cup run since 2000. I wish I … Continue reading

Seattle’s new NHL® team has a great name!

Howe…Gordie, Howe

Sometime after the Futurama jerseys arrived, my James Bond jersey arrived within a month. The demo Geeky Jerseys showed for this had three digits on the back, 007 obviously, and it was how I could get my Bender number in hexadecimal. … Continue reading

If you say this team’s name three times…

…they don’t really do anything other than whip your butt via slapshots! Given their core appearance resembling the officials’ jerseys, I have a feeling they’d have to change or the officials would wear something completely different like they do in … Continue reading

My contribution to this year’s Teddy Bear toss

Don Cherry fired from Hockey Night in Canada

If you’ve never heard of him, Don is Canada’s beloved but racist uncle that was often a favorite feature to watch on Hockey Night in Canada. Before his final tirade, it was easier to give these parallels to most Americans…Don Cherry … Continue reading
