Monday links: Hoping blowing leads is just a USA thing edition

New, comments

It's nice to know that some things will never change. The Blues will always infuriate me and Brett Favre will always throw back-breaking interceptions that make me way too happy. Thanks for brightening my weekend, Brett. May you never change. Anyway, enough football, let's talk pucks. Links? Links.

Videos

From Cross Check Raise comes a commercial feature Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malki, Sergei Gonchar and ... actors as the St. Louis Blues. Nice to see the Blues on TV ... I guess.

Ignore the French and enjoy.
