3 Little Things

Pommers Halo

A perfect gentleman

1. Yay! Pommers is nominated for the Lady Byng. Between Crunchy writing a blog that is basically a hilarious confirmation of all the personality traits we’ve assigned to him, and Pommerdoodle being nominated for what is essentially a “nice guy” award, I’m getting more and more confident that Paul Gaustad actually speaks in HONKS.

2. I love this commercial.

I love this commercial partially because of the appealing music, and partially because of how it’s edited together to look like one long play, but I love it mostly because of the Jagr pass at the 00:47 mark. I tend to get up and wander around the apartment during hockey commercial breaks, but every time I hear this music I zip back to the television so I can see that little soft pass. I don’t know why I love that pass so much.

3. We did a Round One Round-Up Round Table over at ModFan, so go take a peek for our assessment of the first round playoff action.

    That’s my favorite NHL commercial too! It’s much less “Grrrr! Playoffs are TOUGH” than those “The Cup changes everything” commercials.

    I’ve only seen the end of that commercial, so thanks for catching me up on the whole thing, Katebits! It’s so creative; I really think hockey has some of the best advertising in pro sports.

    And I now believe that Pommerdoodle really walks around with a halo over his head at all times. It’s just hidden by his helmet when he’s on the ice.

    I shouldn’t admit this, but it took me forever to realize it was supposed to be one long play. I’m… not very smart.

    I always flip when that commercial comes on. I LOVE it! I like how they pass the puck to the new and old guys.

    Pommers got a lot of attention yesterday, with him choosing to play for Team USA instead of Canada…

    Also, that’s the first time I’ve seen that entire commercial. That just rocks!

    Ah, Pommers, little angel.

    I love ModFan! Keep it coming…

    I had to watch it twice to get the one long play thing, and I absolutely love it. Such amazing creativity with that video.

    And did anyone else notice at the 39 second mark that it was the Ice Bowl? *tear*
