Hockey-Related Stuff (Kinda)

01/18/2007 at 12:55am EST
Jes Golbez throws down a challenge to Oilers fans (and Messier-lovers) everywhere:
"Don't they recall Mark Messier's 9-hour suckfest with the Rangers? If there is anyone who has never reached out to fans, it's Mark Messier. Try getting an autograph from Mark Messier. You're more likely to win the Super 7 jackpot."Why does this dick-headed fraud continue to get the Royal Treatment? Are Oilers fans actually dumb enough to pay $350 for this crap? Fans jamming a downtown square? Where's a firebomb when you need one? If any of the Oilers bloggers actually attend this, I'm going to smack them around more than a few hundred times."
Not hockey-related, but here's a tribute to one of the most important sports figures of the 20th century. Please take a minute to cruise through the press clippings and video of one of my own all-time favorites:
"As everyone probably already knows, today is Muhammad Ali’s 65th Birthday. It’s been a little over 25 years since Ali last stepped into the ring, yet is still one of the most widely talked about boxers today. I was listening to the radio this morning and they said the only thing Ali wanted for his birthday this year was a trip to his favorite magic shop to buy a couple of new things. Still the same kind of guy after all these years…"
The Tennis News Person of the Year. And you only think you don't care...
Peter Burwash, 61, of Carmel Valley, California, generally recognised as the premier global tennis coach to millions, has been named the Tennis News Person of the Year. [...]Burwash, a former NHL draftee hockey player had a career-ending injury that switched his attention to tennis and has since played and coached in 135 countries, more than anyone in the history of the game.
Hockey to Tennis -- who knew? Perhaps there's a future for Jose Theodore after all...
