Kick Save By Wesley Crusher

For those of you who don’t know, Wil Wheaton is an actor/writer/blogger/generally cool dude. For sci-fi geeks like myself, we know him as much for his role as Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation as for his current writing (which bounces between pop culture observations, memoir writing, comic book writing, and tech articles for major websites). Now we know that he can do a kick save too:

I guess I was near the crease when I saw him pull his stick back way over his head. “Oh good,” I thought, “he’s just going to try to blast it past me. Those shots almost always go wide, or right into my glove.”

The next thing I knew, there was an explosion in the rink, and a bright flash of light before everything went dark. When the lights came back on, I was on my knees, surrounded by a semicircle of skates. I pulled my helmet off, and watched a whole bunch of blood pour down onto the ice.

“Oh, the way it beads up is really neat,” I thought. Then, “Wait. That’s my blood.”
