Of course, preseason has it's own rewards (which I will show you shortly, don't worry), but I'm really curious as to what everyone thinks about all the injuries going around right now. It seems like almost every team has at least one person out -hell, the Pens entire first line, part of their second and all of their letters are out right now (Sid, Duper, Kuni and Geno -Sid has the C, and Geno and Kuni As, in case anyone's curious). Not to mention that the Stars have people out (Val, 1RW and Kari, G, got pulled today -don't know if it was a scheduled goalie switch or what), Claude's out for a pulled groin, Quick's still out (G for the Kings, he fucked up his foot over the summer) and Doughty is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. And those are just ones I heard about. What the fuck, Hockey Gods, fucking with us already?
Good things have come, too, though, Stars beat the Blues tonight (FUCK YOU, TJ OSHIE, STOP TRYING TO STOCKHOLM ME INTO LIKING YOU, MOTHERFUCKER), the Hawks are looking good and, perhaps best of all, CAREY FUCKEN PRICE IS BACK IN HIS NET AND IS PLAYING AS GOOD AS EVER, SO FUCK YOU RANGERS. FUCK YOU SO HARD AND WITH NO LUBE.
In addition to those awesome things, here's a couple more:
For anyone doesn't know, these are the Patricks, Kane and Sharp, from l to r. Kaner caught a piece of a puck to the face and Sharpy got a high stick, and then these two assholes took fucken pictures to post on the internet. I know this was all you, Sharpy, and I'm not sure if I want to beat you for being a troll or kiss you for posting them. Probably both. Now I'm imagining Jonny fucking Kaner's face, his thumb pressed against the cut on Kaner's face, drawing these gorgeous noises from him... Fuck you, Sharpy, this is all your fault.
So, yeah, Tyler Seguin. Who is so blissed out because he's playing on a line with his
So, I was talking on twitter with candy_belle the other night and got on the subject of top ten celebrity crushes and how they would all be hockey players because hockey is more addictive than fucken heroin. And I told her I would post my top ten. So, yeah, here you go, lol. Enjoy 😉
Because I am both terribly susceptible to certain things and an enabler, I bring you another edition of:
So You Want To Hockey (Like a Stanley Cup Winner)
(The sound in this is pretty low, so you might want to up the volume a little bit.)
Favorite parts: Patrick Kane: This is twenty percent skill, eighty percent fear, be a hundred percent clear cause Ryu is ill. Who would've thought that he'd be the one to set the west in flames? And I heard him wreck it with The Crystal Method, "Name Of The Game", came back dropped Megadef, took em to church. I like bleach man, why you had the stupidest verse? This dude is the truth, now everybody's giving him guest spots, his stock's through the roof -I heard he's fuckin' with S.Dot., Alex Ovechkin: They call him Ryu, he's sick and he's spitting fire, and Mike got him out the dryer he's hot. Found him in Fort Minor with Tak. What a fuckin' nihilist porcupine; he's a prick, he's a cock. The type woman want to be with, and rappers hope he get shot. Eight years in the making, patiently waiting to blow, now the record with Shinoda's taking over the globe. He's got a partner in crime, his shit is equally dope. You wont believe the kind of shit that comes out of this kid's throat., Geno Malkin: Tak! - He's not your everyday on the block. He knows how to work with what he's got, making his way to the top. He often gets a comment on his name, people keep asking him was it given at birth? Or does it stand for an acronym? No, he's living proof, got him rocking the booth. He'll get you buzzing quicker than a shot of vodka with juice. Him and his crew are known around as one of the best, dedicated to what they do and give a hundred percent., Sidney Crosby: Forget Mike- nobody really knows how or why he works so hard. It seems like he's never got time because he writes every note and he writes every line. And I've seen him at work when that light goes on in his mind, it's like a design is written in his head every time, before he even touches a key or speaks in a rhyme. And those motherfuckers he runs with, the kids that he signed? Ridiculous, without even trying, how did he do it?
