All day long I’ve been batting around the idea of doing a Sean Avery post, but I just read this, and I am now too dumbfounded to continue. I….don’t have any idea how to respond to that. I’m literally speechless.
So, instead of a post about the Sean Avery “sloppy seconds” incident, here is a video of a really funny dog wearing little dog shoes.
Make sure to watch to the end! (It’s only 45 second long)

The hockey world is up in arms over the non-renewal of the Hockey Night in Canada theme song. I can’t quite decipher the legalities of what is going on between CBC and the woman who composed the tune, so I will refrain from commenting, but I will say that I think it’s a good little ditty, and it’s really a shame we won’t be hearing it anymore.
It’s possible that this surprisingly awesome ukulele version of the HNIC theme song has already made the hockey blog rounds, but I discovered it the old fashioned way; by tooling around on YouTube, following link after ridiculous link. Check him out. This is Ukulele Mike.
I love it

Every single hockey blog in the world is posting this commercial today, because it’s absolutely breathtaking.

I just wanted to make sure everyone sees this, because it’s awfully cute. Patrick Kane is such a feel good story for Buffalo. I’ve become a bit of a Blackhawks fans because of him. Go Kaner!
Thanks to Rinslet over at hlog for the heads-up on this video.

I’m sure you have already seen the new NHL, “Is this the year? commercials.
I found this mash-up over at AOL FanHouse.
Now, I actually like this ad. I love that Ryan Miller is featured so prominently. I like that hockey is an international sport, and I wish that the ad featured more players speaking in their native language. I loathe the anti-Sid sentiment at the end of the retooled ad………..but this mash-up made me laugh. I laughed because from the very first time I saw this commercial, every time they asked, “Is this the Year?” I responded out loud with a resounding “No”.
It was pure instinct.
I’m no advertising genius, but the fact that on first viewing I was literally responding in the negative to the commercial seems like a fairly large flaw in the advertising campaign.
