Wednesday Links - Doc Emrick is the Greatest

Brad Richards: Ginger Beard. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Doc Emrick is great. Hockey Hugs. Dan Hinote. Outdoor game in the Bay Area. Fuck Carcillo. NYR fans should fly to LA. Pierre to Pittsburgh? Shitty weaponry. Bullshit unwritten rules. Destructive foul balls. Football tryout arrests. And Michael Caine. Hump. Day.

All link'd up. Don't know what to do.

BLUES NEWS:

  • *FART NOISE*

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals is tonight on NBC. Set your drinking schedules accordingly. Go Rags. [NHL.com 06/04/14]
  • And when the Kings face off with the Rangers at Staples Center tonight, Doc Emrick will not be there as he is tending to his family after the death of his father-in-law. But what he's doing with his free time? Just so awesome. Doc is just the Goddamn greatest. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [USA Today]
  • No Blues in this edition of Hockey Hugs for two reasons . . . one, they wanted to "ACT LIKE YA BEEN THERE BEFORE KID" . . . two, they . . . ummmm, weren't there. Yeah. Lighten up, Francis. [Puck Daddy]
  • Former Blues forward Dan Hinote told the Blue Jackets that he would not be returning with the club in 2014-15 as an assistant coach, citing a "private family matter". Hopefully not because Jay McKee sent him this, from Hinote's wedding reception. (But seriously . . . hope all is well with Dan and his crew) (S/T again to CrossCheckRaise) [Columbus Dispatch / Puck-Rakers]
  • Kevin Kurz says the Sharks are getting an outdoor game in 2015. Y'know why they'll get one and the Blues won't? THEIR FANS SHOW UP TO HOME GAMES. (WARNING: FUCK COMCAST SPORTSNET AND THEIR STUPID ASS AUTOPLAY VIDEOS. IN. THE. FUCKING. ASS.) [CSN Bay Area]
  • The lesson here . . . do something dumb to a ref, bitch about it and get your suspension reduced. Daniel Carcillo, kids. He'll be "available for selection" to Alain Vigneault in Game Four, and hopefully Vigneault plants his ass in the MSG press buffet line. [Puck Daddy]
  • It's cheaper for Rags fans to fly to LA and Games 1 or 2 (or possibly 5 or 7) than for Rags fans to hop on a train and go to Games 3 or 4 (or possibly 6). [The Wire]
  • So after saying he wouldn't intrude on Ray Shero's old job, Pierre McGuire will now seek the GM position with the Penguins after receiving Shero's blessing. GODDAMNIT CAN THIS HAPPEN YESTERDAY SO THIS MOTHERFUCKER AND HIS "TOO SMART FOR SCHOOL" ACT CAN GET THE FUCKING FUCK OFF MY FUCKING TELEVISION FUCKING SCREEN?!?!?!?! [Puck Daddy]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Here's 11 shitty fictional weapons. Obviously, they're all a lot shittier than the ones Jason and I linked to LAST week. (S/T to Childhood Trauma) [Cracked]
  • Of all sports, baseball probably has the most "unwritten rules" of any sort. As former MLB player Dirk Hayhurst tells it . . . pretty much all of them are bullshit. (SIDE NOTE: Dirk Hayhurst was born exactly a day before I was. And his baseball career is over. Holy SHIT am I old.) [Deadspin]
  • In a game against the Reds at Great American Ball Park, Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit a foul ball into the press box . . . and the struck ball destroyed some reporter's laptop. Damn. [SB Nation]
  • Want an NFL tryout? Well, this apparently isn't the way to go . . . but the Browns DO need all the help they can get these days, so . . . not a bad thought. 10 years ago, this would be me. Maybe. (S/T to J-Mill) [Pro Football Talk]

The often-imitated Michael Caine impersonates . . . himself:

Well done.

One more opportunity this week to send me links, videos and shit:

Join us later for Episode 44 of Beyond Checkerdome. It . . . was a bit of a challenge.
