Steven Patrick Morrissey vs. Patrick Marleau

(Hey, that’s two posts in a row that use something vs. something. Totally unintentional.)

If, while pondering the great mysteries of life, you’ve ever wondered how a Smiths song could possibly sum up an upcoming San Jose Sharks season, have faith in the universe—I’ve finally answered that burning question. Check out the 2009-10 San Jose Sharks preview over at Puck Daddy.

And now, musical awesomeness after the jump…

In Honor of George Plimpton

Saw this on Wil Wheaton’s blog today.

I was sitting in my bedroom, playing Dark Castle on my Mac while Morrissey sang songs about how nobody understood me.

There was a soft knock at the door, and then it opened.

“Do you have a minute?” My dad said.

“Hold on.” I clicked my mouse furiously, throwing rocks at divebombing birds. I miscalculated and my little adventurer guy Duncan died. It was my fault, and I knew it was my fault, but I sighed heavily and acted like he’d messed me up. I dramatically pushed my hair out of my face and turned around. My dad held something behind his back.

“I found this book that I think you’ll like. It was written by a journalist who would play professional sports and then write about them. He played baseball, football, golf, and ...” he revealed the book. The cover showed a familiar-looking guy wearing a Boston Bruins jersey. “...he also played hockey with the Boston Bruins.”

Three things I love about it: 1) It’s about hockey 2) It mentions Morrissey 3) It’s from someone who was on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Read the whole thing here.

First Of The Gang To Die

(Bonus points if you got the reference in the post title)

Stick a fork in ‘em, they’re done.

We’ve talked for so long about how the Western Conference was filled with a tight race where all 15 teams could make the playoffs. About a week ago, I proposed that if the Colorado Avalanche and Phoenix Coyotes didn’t get at least seven points in their next five games, they’d be out.

A few losses later, you can count the Western Conference now as the Magnificent 13.

Off Topic: Morrissey - Years of Refusal

From time to time, I’ll post fanboy reviews of different new releases in entertainment. In most cases, it’ll either be music (mostly notable indie rock releases) or geeky genre movies. If none of this interests you, feel free to politely ignore these posts.

Off Topic: U2’s Get On Your Boots

From time to time, I’ll post fanboy reviews of different new releases in entertainment. In most cases, it’ll either be music (mostly notable indie rock releases) or geeky genre movies (it’s too bad my server crash deleted my review of The X-Files: I Want To Believe over the summer). If none of this interests you, feel free to politely ignore these posts.
