When You’re A Jet, You’re A Jet All The Way

Monday, July 25th, 2011

After 15 long years, the NHL is back in Winnipeg! The Winnipeg Jets have adopted a decidedly military look for their new logo. The team unveiled a design Friday that shows a sleek fighter jet pointing north over a red Maple Leaf, all inside a navy blue and grey circle. The logo is strikingly similar [...]

Hockey Night In Philly

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Editor’s Note: If you’re sick of hearing me brag about my kids, kindly skip this post. There’s probably some bloggy goodness going on over at First In. Or not. Last night, the boys started their second week of hockey. Erik is in the 4-7 year old division, and Kyle is in the 7-10 division. Erik’s [...]

Hockey’s Back!

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Well, for the kids, that is. Kyle and Erik will be playing another season in the Bustleton Bengals street hockey league. It has been something they have both been talking about for a while. The first games begin tonight, with Erik playing the early game and Kyle playing the later one. Kyle was hoping he [...]

Philadelphia Flyers Sign Jaromir Jagr

Friday, July 1st, 2011

You’ll have to bear with me here because it’s really difficult typing while jumping up and down shouting, “OH MY GOD!!!” The Flyers have been making stellar moves all through the off-season, and landed Jagr and former Penguins forward Maxime Talbot today – the first day of NHL Free Agency. The new-look Philadelphia Flyers were [...]

Overnight Thread

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Congratulations to the Boston Bruins – 2010-2011 Stanley Cup Champions!!! The Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0 in Game 7. Goaltender Tim Thomas (above) played out of his mind and was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy for the MVP of the playoffs. He more than earned it. Congratulations also to the people of Boston and [...]

Overnight Thread

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Everyone knows your high school years are tailor made for pranks. Whether it be shoving someone into a locker, or putting plastic wrap over a toilet seat, the propensity for hi-jinx is unlimited. Then, someone goes and pulls a boner. CROP circles might be known for their beauty and paranormal allure, but the giant phalluses [...]

Overnight Thread

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Good evening ladies and gents, and welcome to tonight’s overnight thread. Let’s start off the frivolity with a bang. Randal Graves sent this story to me, and considering today’s climate, it is something we all need to consider. What is it? A zombie-proof house. “The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling [...]

2012 NHL Winter Classic Coming To Philly?

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

That’s the rumor. And as a hockey fan, I am completely and utterly against it. According to Darren Dreger of TSN, it appears like the Philadelphia Flyers will host the New York Rangers – but not in the home of the Eagles: The NHL hasn’t officially signed off on the location, largely because of building [...]

AHL Team Buys House For Disabled Fan

Friday, May 13th, 2011

The Albany River Rats recently moved to Charlotte, where they were renamed the Checkers. The team’s most loyal fan, 11-year old Zach Bennett, was crushed. Bennett has a nerve disease which has cost him both his legs. The Bennetts decided to move to Charlotte to follow their favorite hockey team and to be closer to [...]

How ‘Bout Dem Flyers?

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

I come here not to praise the Philadelphia Flyers, but I won’t completely bury them, either. The Boston Bruins, behind the stone wall that is Tim Thomas, swept my home town team last night after a 5-1 victory. I’m pretty bent about that, and I really shouldn’t be. Here’s why: 1. 2010 Was A Mirage. [...]
