Signs you might be an obnoxious hockey parent.

A comprehensive list: You care entirely too much about the outcome of a game between 7-9 year olds (or 10 or 11 or 12 or…) and yell at the kids. On either team. Not cheer, yell. You yell at the refs. That’s pretty much it. I personally could do without the cowbells and cheering for […]

The Anaheim Ducks Won a Hockey Game

Widely expected to be one of the worst teams in the NHL this season, the Ducks get their first win of the season in game three. Anaheim started their season with a 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights, a 2-1 loss in overtime to Vegas, and now a 1-0 win against the vaunted Minnesota Wild. […]

BREAKING: The NHL Returns Tonight

Today is the day: the NHL is finally back!!! It really gets going tomorrow night at 10 PM ET / 9 PM CT, Ducks @ Golden Knights, but whatever, semantics. Hockey is back, and I have emotions. With hockey returning (in case you hadn’t heard), I thought I’d do something very timely and Power Rank […]

Measuring a Sport’s Goodness

10 TALLEST Waterslides or something or other

Occasionally it’s wiffle ball or some NFL/NHL highlight reel. More often than not it’s some PBT NERF thing or Kingdom Wars gameplay. Lately though (like four days), […]

Time to Hit the Slopes

I’ve skied once, maybe twice, in my entire life. I’m more of a tubing kind of gent. I am very adventurous and very active in the fitness world, though, so I’m always looking for new reasons to get out and about. Fortunately targeted Facebook ads exist, and I’ve found a new way to get my […]

Throwback Tuesday – Jersey Edition

It sounds like the NHL might be introducing fourth jerseys for the upcoming season, whenever that is. Teams playing in the outdoor games always get a special jersey, but this would be a true fourth jersey for every team in the league. The theme is “reverse retro,” which is essentially a remix of a throwback […]
