Monday links: It's Davis Payne day edition

Oh Monday, how I loathe thee. At least it's a new month. January is gone, long live February. I'm rambling. Let's do this.

Blues news

  • Davis Payne took a long, interesting road to the NHL — a great read. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • Speaking of Payne, his first impression with Larry Pleau left a good mark. Nice to know if I want a job with the Blues, all I gotta do is ask. [Belleville News-Democrat]
  • Things I learned reading this article: Roman Polak and I are the same age. Puts things into perspective. He'll be going to the Olympics, I'll be watching them on TV. Sigh. [Kelowna]

Hockey links

  • The Blues are in 13th place. I'm not feeling too confident about making a run toward spot No. 8. Every team ahead of the Note seems ... better? []
  • Results from the last day of January 2010. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Four games on Feb. 1. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • From Donut King: Those lovely assholes who protests soldiers' funerals have decided to take on hockey. I really don't want to give them publicity, but man do these people suck. [Deadspin]

  • The Washington Capitals are playing some damn fine hockey. [ESPN]
  • They're coming. [Second City Hockey]

Other links

  • Here's a way to waste some time. Think of a character and Akinator will guess it. He guessed correctly The Stay Puft Marshmellow Man but failed on Ozzie Smith and David Backes[Akinator, the Web Genius]
  • I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Kids suck at art. [Gunaxin]
  • Monopoly: The Drinking Game. Enjoy. [Sloshspot]
