News from the front

Checking around the intraweb today and we have some comical news which, honestly, is about the best it'll get in the dead of summer.

1. Just when you thought that the NHL would stay out of the muddy waters of Bonds and his muscle creams, NBA gambling fixes and, well, anything the Cincinnati Bengals do, the Staal brothers go and make a no-no. Leave it to a few guys with a last name of STALL to forget that trait and go over the limit. No mention of strippers though....not yet anyway. C'mon, a bachelor party without strippers? There's your story.

2. JJ has a deep throat connection out there somewhere as it seems he got his hands on what may be the new Canuck logo. I guess my hopes that it would be the vintage logo - despite what the Orca Bay execs have been saying - isn't going to happen. Oh well, it still beats Johnny Canuck being on there. I'm not speaking ill of the history behind that character, it just looks so...so...what's the word...oh yeah....awful on the front of a professional jersey.

3. You realize the title of this post is a Bad Religion song right? No you didn't? Wait, who's Bad Religion? OK, all of you people hang your heads in shame. Or, better yet, go buy their new album.

4. Sounds like no one loves Cujo that much anymore (save for Blue Jays' fans).

5. The always ethical NY Post has a hockey blog (who knew?!) about contracting the league and includes of those to have their heads chopped off...wait for it...the last three Cup champs. There were obvious targets in Nashville, Atlanta and Phoenix and the best is killing Dallas and moving them back to Minnsota which is possible only after you kill off the current Minny team (I'm no fan of the Wild, but I love the idea that the Wild fans would have no problem with this). And yet no mention of killing off, oh I don't know, the Islanders? Or even the Sabres? Why the fuck is the criteria for contraction exactly? This is why the NY Post exists: to give those who can't think outside the box a venue in which to think comfortably inside the box.

6. Alanah got a tip that the Canucks, who have been waiting all summer to fill that massive gaping hole next to Morrison on the second line, likely inked one Jozef Balej today. Not sure if the guy - with the whitest hair of any living human mortal - will be fighting for a spot on the third and fourth lines along with many others (Isbister, Shannon, Ritchie, Cowan, Burrows, Linden, Kesler, Jaffray, Grabner, Hansen, Rypien, Simek, Fin...) or be Moose bound. Stay tuned.

That dude Jozef or whatever scares me...like...I don't know he's like a ghost or something.

I guess having the walking undead to use sparingly on the fourth line could help us somehow. I'll let Vigneault figure all that out ;)

I think guys will be afraid to touch him...and you wonder why I don't want to go to a Nucks game haha.

Whatever the new logo turns out to be, I'm pretty happy it's not the stick. For all that it's kind of fun to have as a third jersey and whatever, as far as an actual team emblem goes it doesn't do much for me. There's nothing related to the team name contained in the simple stick, and the design doesn't make much of a background on the computer or whatever. Keep it as the third jersey and give me something cooler... and that new logo suggested in the link would fit that bill, with the right jersey!

I like simple, for the record. The way the Sabres took their jerseys was great. It's just that I really want to have something "Canuckian" on the jersey. The hockey stick is way too generic, by me.

Mike said...

Bitchany - first, nice name change. I approve. Secondly, you don't go to Canucks games because watching Federov and the boys lose to Luongo and the Sedins is tough on your blood pressure. It's ok, you can admit it. Wink wink.

Knotwurth - I really like the stick. Simple is better to me sometimes. I've seen a few images of the Johnny Canuck logo bouncing around and I hate that. It's way too cartoonish...and that's my knock against the Orca (and if Bethany is still reading, the BJ's bee). It just looks so damn silly...maybe it's the MLB and NFL rubbing off on me, but I prefer simple logos. And the vintage canuck one, my own bias aside, really is a great one. My two cents.

Bitchany said...

Oh Mike I am glad you like my name change haha. But, I am used to losing I have been a BJ fan for a while now haha.

And, as for Stinger...you love him admit it.

Mike said...

Stinger does beat the Flames mascot, I'll give you that.
