Over at the Post-Pessimist Association, discover the madness of collecting game-worn jerseys. A cautionary tale about how combining eBay, alcohol consumption, and a passion for Tomáš Klouček jerseys may eventually leave you in financial ruin.
Carolina Hurricanes fan Red & Black Hockey discovers that some of the locals wear Atlanta Thrashers merchandise... as a fashion statement. (Don't think about that for too long... it'll make your head hurt...) In Pittsburgh, Igloo Dreams smells something underhanded going on at City Hall. And on Red Wings Legends, Bob Probert's bio was recently added to the reading selections.
LCS Hockey isn't a blog, but I liked their article ranking the best goalies for 2006-07. Interestingly, Marc-Andre Fleury makes the top-10, which is defended by LCS this way: "Fleury is already the most spectacular goaltender in the world. He's the fastest, quickest, most agile goalie I've ever seen." Whoa, really? Still, it's a great read, with plenty to argue about.
Covered in Oil has interviewed the Hot Oil girls here. These women are endlessly quotable, but let me give you just a tease from the lovely Loxy: "The distance between a fan and her loved player creates a special bond that restraining orders can’t change." I'm pretty sure she's kidding.

Back in a couple days with more hockey blog chatter.
