Just a Lucky Shot

A quickie... but watch the whole thing.  The blur you see just above the "play" icon is a puck coming right at you at warp speed.

"How cool does that look in HD?" sez our announcer.  Pretty cool, sez me.

h/t: Wyshynski.


  1. Pretty cool indeed! There was a similar breaking of the camera lens in the Ranger's game the other night. Amazing that out of all the space at a game, the camera would get bashed!

  2. Nope. Sorry. That other post, in all its flesh-toned glory, is still down below, and until that disappears from your front page, I'm no good for anything else.

  3. Dang! Dental work? Eye surgery? Those ARE some tough motor-scooters...

  4. Lou: I don't know HOW many times I've watched this. The arc of the puck as it bears in is just mesmerizing.

    Jim: Your loss, Bud.

    Andy: Yeah, and to think these guys routinely block shots with their bodies. ROUTINELY. Aiiieee. In spades.

  5. The puck clearly wants to get away from the players. That's because of the smell. I've been in a lot of locker rooms in my day, and let me tell you, hockey locker rooms are the smelliest by a factor of five.

  6. THAT'S an interesting take, Gordon!


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