KK- Hosting Issue

It appears we are having a slight hosting issue this morning, causing KK to load slowly.

We are working on the issue and will update as soon as possible.

added 10:23am, from my hosting service,

This morning, the data center lost a power distribution unit and this affected many of our Minneapolis, MN servers. We have moved the systems to alternate circuits and are bringing the systems back online.

And The Winners Are…

imageThe Alexander Ovechkin Challenge closed rather quickly (given his determination to blow that 60 goal target we set right out of the water last week.  Very nicely done, AO…)

And so, our official winners are:

  • The Alexander Ovechkin Jersey goes to blueleafss who guessed closest to the correct time of the 60th goal.
  • The Alexander Ovechkin Special Edition DVD goes to jsginsocal, who won it by a random draw from all the entries.


Both winners will be contacted by email in the next 48 hours.  Thanks for playing, everyone.


Watch for the next Kukla’s Korner Challenge coming on April 2nd… we’ll have more fun stuff to give away to KK members (‘cause unfortunately, Paul won’t let me keep the swag for myself)!

Ovechkin Hits 60

Alexander Ovechkin scored his 60th goal of the season at the 11:30 mark of the 3rd period tonight.

It looks as if KK member blueleafss is the unofficial winner of the Ovechkin jersey.  He predicted AO would score his 60th goal at the 13:53 mark in the 3rd period.

I will re-check all the entries and post the official winner on Monday.

Never Again

Sunday night it started, and by Tuesday morning it was time to re-load Windows XP onto my computer.  I am not sure what happened besides the power hit I took, but I am happy to report I am working my way back into game shape.

I am about 80% right now, but the playoffs are close and we need as many points as possible.  I have a few other things to take care of and should be back to posting by 9:00am today.

Thanks to Alanah for keeping you updated and I will see you soon.

Pierre McGuire Talks to KK

Earlier today, Pierre McGuire of NBC and TSN  was good enough to share his hockey observations with Paul and myself.  We asked him about the upcoming Philadelphia/Pittsburgh game this Sunday at noon EDT on NBC, got some gossip about what goes on “Between the Glass”, and insights into both the Western and Eastern conferences going into the playoffs. 


You can download the interview by this mp3 file here, or listen on the player below.

*Our sincere thanks to Pierre McGuire for taking this time with us, and to NBC for arranging the interview.

Forget 50, How About 60!

image[Updated March 10th —Originally posted March 4th. Deadline for contest entries is tomorrow. Details below.]

_______________________

Can Alexander Ovechkin get to 60 goals this season?  You tell me!

Pick the game, period and time that AO will reach 60 goals this season.  If you are the closest (in case of tie, a random drawing will be held between the winning entries)  with your prediction, you win a replica Rbk Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin Premier jersey.

Also, anyone entering will be entered into a random drawing for an autographed, limited edition DVD from Alex’s Calder Trophy season, courtesy of the Washington Capitals.

To help you out, here is the Caps schedule for the season.  I need the date of the game, what period he will get #60 and the time of the goal, NOT the time left in the period.

Closest to the correct time (over or under) will win the jersey.  If Ovechkin does not get to 60 goals, a random drawing will be held for the jersey.

You must be a KK member to win (join, it’s free!) and good luck.  Also, all entries must submitted in the comment section of this post (no emails) and must be timestamped by noon EDT on March 11, 2008.

That Time Of Year

With Daylight Saving Time (DST) just around the corner, I wanted to give KK members a heads-up to change your time settings.

Go into your KK Member Account settings (located near the top right of any page), go to Localization Settings, tick the DST box & update.  Also, make sure your time zone is set-up to match your local time if you want KK to coincide with your local time.

Also, you have less than 3 days to enter the latest KK Challenge and win an Alexander Ovechkin jersey!
