Sometimes a Game is More than a Game

I’m just going to say it:  I’m not a fan of this 11am PT Saturday morning hockey game insanity that the bosses have planned.  11am?!  image

After a night working on website code (another website) where—at about 1 in the morning—I managed to absolutely destroy that website, I’m less enthused than ever.  So I’m tired and I’m grumpy. If the Canucks were to lose, it might push me over the edge.

But that being said, the Canucks are starting a slate of can’t-miss games this morning that continue through to next Saturday:

Changing “The Script”

Time to go home, Pittsburgh. No more games for you.

You’re clearly out-matched, have no business being in these Stanley Cup Finals, and frankly, we’re a bit concerned Evgeni Malkin is going to hurt himself.

What, you say? You don’t think you’re out of it yet? You think you CAN win a couple games?

Oh yeah, right. It’s a best-of-7 series. 

But you can’t blame me for being confused. I’ve been following the hockey coverage and the overwhelming theme thus far is: You’re outclassed.

Is THIS the Year?

With thanks to Greg Wyshynski at AOL Sports, I came across this cynical little video parodying the NHL’s advertisement theme, “Is This The Year?”

Greg suggests that Crosby sounds like “Emo”... and I agree, but would just like to add that Emo sounds a wee bit wasted…

Hockey Cooking

imageFrom the Penguins:

The Pittsburgh Penguins have published a charity cookbook, “Goal Scorers & Gourmets,” to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.  In time for the holidays, the cookbook features favorite recipes from the players and team personnel as assembled by the team’s wives and girlfriends.  The book also includes fun food facts for each player, cooking terms and a variety of culinary information.

Cookbooks are available at all Penguins home games through the month of December and by mail order via the Penguins website at http://www.pittsburghpenguins.com


A good cause, and I love hockey cookbooks. I’ve also copied Sidney Crosby’s Meatball recipe below. 

And if you still feel like more hockey food entertainment, František Kaberle’s Chicken Paprika made by my friend Greg last year, still ranks as one of my all-time favorite moments where hockey blogging, booze and food all came together into one delightful heart-attack-on-a-plate. 

I’ve cooked it myself twice now. That’s one scary-looking chicken dish, let me tell you.
