Public Service Announcement

This is where I'll be at the times indicated. About which...I'm of the opinion that the skills competition is just as good as the game... if not better.

I could go off on a rant here about this year's "voting" for the All-Star teams, but I'll resist the temptation. Most of you wouldn't give two hoots in Hell about that, anyway... with the possible exception of perhaps three of you Gentle Readers who drop by occasionally. And I'm sure all three of you know what I'm talking about.

Update, 01/24/2009: Susan, in comments, sez: "
Don't forget, the US Pond Hockey Championship Game will be streamed live on Sunday as well :)"

Ah, yes. Hockey in its purest form. And didja know there's a movie about pond hockey? You can see the trailer for the movie here. The folks who own the Pond Hockey web site provide code for embedding the trailer but Blogger doesn't seem to like the code, unfortunately. I tried, Gentle Reader... I tried.


  1. I know exactly what you are talking about, sir. And it falls firmly into the category of "'til I'm blue in the face." So I just ain't gonna bother. I'll be watching every bit, too.

    Was made happy this morning by Wyshinski over at Yahoo's NHL page again, because in his Daily Headlines section he linked to Owen Nolan's called shot from an All-Star Game some years ago. Sweet moment - maybe not for Hasek, though.

  2. Yep, I'm with you and Andy. And I'm not going to bother wasting my time ranting.

    The skills competition is as good as anything in any all-star fiesta in any sport. Hell, I played decent hockey when I was younger, but some of the things those guys do just amaze me. The sharpshooting - unreal.

  3. Well Buck I'm not sure where I would fit in on this one. I grew up in the south and to be honest with you I never learned the first thing about hockey. But I will say this that when Little Rock had a minor league hockey team I loved to go watch them play. It sounds like you're about to have a blast, just be safe and have a cold one for me!

  4. Don't forget, the US Pond Hockey Championship Game will be streamed live on Sunday as well :)


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
