Hockey Players Are the Toughest Athletes on the Planet

I’m not going to sit here and pretend that hockey players are tougher than other athletes. It’s just a fact so I don’t have to pretend. I mean it’s right there in the title. And tonight we got another example of that from Vincent Trocheck. The dude can’t even skate, and even though he’s trying […]

When is a $6 million home not worth $6 million?

My sister-in-law sent a text to me and my wife today. For once it wasn’t about her wedding. No, it was because of that house up there. More specifically, it was because of this. Not entirely sure why she thought I’d be interested in a mansion with hockey rink on the premises, but here we […]

Signs you might be an obnoxious hockey parent.

And I like drills.” My youngest child likes hockey. He particularly enjoys shooting and skating […]

All Hail our Internet Overlords

It’s Friday, early afternoon. The sky overcast, the air crisp. But I didn’t truly feel a chill until I received the text from my wife. A truly terrifying reality.
