Jersey Fair or Foul?

Hate your teams jersey? Well if they’re as boring as the Cleveland Browns (and the team has been bad since before the SuperBowl was a thing) you might be ripping your garments as well. Browns attempted a last second field goal to break a tie game with the Ravens. It was blocked and returned for a touchdown. (Definitely NSFW)

POTW

Weber – 9 points – not bad for the #2 D man on the Preds.

Love his Olympic card - We don't have to be told what province Sicamous is in, but not sure if Nashville is in Tennessee or Idaho

Love his Olympic card – Sure, he lives in Nashville, Tennessee but his hometown? Sicamous. Just Sicamous.  No Province. No Country. Just Sicamous. Might as well have said “Mars.”

Great Moment: A great moment for Garret Sparks this week as he shut out the Oilers 3-0. He’s the first Leaf goalie to record a shutout in his NHL debut. The moment wasn’t lost on him. Check the video.

Welcome to TO kid. Good luck.

OK, That’s Enough; Moments Over: And then Wednesday he got shelled 6-1 by the Jets. It’s a tough life.

From rookie to grizzled vet….
Check out Islanders goalie Battlin’ Billy Smith, winner of the 1983 Conn Smythe trophy ripping into Gretzky after he won the cup. Might be a good replacement for Don when he leaves Coach’s Corner? Click on image.

Jim Kyte vs Brendan Gallagher or Why Old Guys Should Stay Off of Twitter

An interesting read on the Twitter war between @jimkyte & @BGALLY17. Click on “Big Jim” to read more.

Kyte is known as the only "legally-deaf" NHLer. The others are all "illegal."
