Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: Torrie Mitchell
This morning, Pollak reported that Joe Thornton was clean-shaven for the early skate. It just so happens that, in trying to make sense of this nascent season, I had been rereading my entries from this week last year, and on October 21, 2010 I mentioned that the Sharks all looked very nice clean-shaven. They have not gotten so furry as the did during the 2010 early bad patch, but it made me say huh anyway. After Pavelski scored his tying goal, I noticed that his hair is very short now. Unless he shaved his head some weeks ago, he probably had it trimmed in the last week or so.
Little things like that, aside from providing fodder for obsessive observers, do actually have some significance. It’s like cleaning up your house, trimming things down, simplification. These are the easy things you can do to get your head in order. Snip snip, scrape scrape, and you feel like a new person. There is more to do, but you are probably better prepared to do it.
