Northwest Notes

11/12/2008 at 5:04pm EST

The New York TimesSlap Shot blog posted their tribute to the Northwest division yesterday, where I added my own two-bits on the Vancouver Canucks last week. And they were some very deep thoughts, too. A sample:

Q. The worst thing about going to a game at your team’s rink?
A. The. Price. Of. Freakin’. Beer.

You get the the idea. Check out the rest of the division (*well, minus the Wild and the Oilers since those contributors apparently went AWOL) Still, there’s good stuff out of Calgary and Colorado.

For instance I love the idea of “giant fireballs” erupting in the Saddledome—although my own thoughts on the matter are probably a bit more sinister than those of Hit the Post who contributed the NYT segment.

And the assertion from In the Cheap Seats that Colorado’s Pepsi Center “smells like butterflies and cinnamon” is perfection.

Deep fried butterflies sprinkled with cinnamon, anyone?

Someone should probably tip PETA to be on the lookout for any Free Food Night events in Denver.
