Tuesday Links - Medieval Land Fun-Time World

Blues still in the Lowcountry. Virtually goalless marquee games. More Shanabans. Brent Burns will get a haircut. Holmgren's shrooms apparently help him keep his job. Cheap tickets at Purdue. And bad lipreading on Game of Thrones. I hear it's Tuesday.

I still think this guy played poorly on Friday.

Still, like, three nights until the next Blues game. This schedule is fucking insanely stupid.


  • So without games to play, the Blues have been visiting the heart of America's Lowcountry . . . beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. Our own luvhockey sent me this local account of the occurrence. [WCSC-TV]


  • Scores from last night. Only three games. Boy, when the Avalanche(s) finally come down to earth, that crash is gonna be fun to watch. []
  • Eight games tonight. []
  • For once, something on which Ryan Lambert finds the KHL superior to the NHL . . . supplemental discipline. So says he in his weekly "What We Learned" piece. [Puck Daddy]
  • Brent Burns is quite known for the fact that he kinda looks like a homeless person. Well, the Sharks defenseman-turned-forward will get a shave and a haircut for charity on November 1st. [Sharks]
  • Suspensions! First, Ryan Garbutt will have an in-person hearing for his dumb hit on Dustin Penner Sunday. []
  • Then, Michael Grabner got one of the shortest explanations ever when he got suspended two games for this head shot on Nathan Gerbe on Saturday. []
  • Finally, the big one . . . Cody McLeod gets five games for knocking Niklas Kronwall into next week in an illegal fashion. []
  • Seemingly everyone thinks Paul Holmgren should be fired by the Flyers. Apparently everyone except Flyers management. Because maybe they're taking the same shrooms Paul Holmgren has. Ho. Lee. Shit. []
  • So, Martin Biron's final game as an NHL goaltender was that 5-3 Blues victory over the Rangers in which he was pulled after two periods. WE ENDED HIM, YOU GUYS! Or. Something. [New York Times]


  • My Fighting Illini will play football at Purdue in what will probably be the shittiest game of the Big Ten season on November 23rd. And tickets are really damn cheap. [The Champaign Room]
  • If you're gonna drive drunk, don't dress as The Joker or else everyone falls victim to horrible Batman jokes. [Y! / AP]
  • 71 fictional beers, charted. [Deadspin]


If you mute Game of Thrones and fuck up the lip-reading, you might imagine it as a really weird medieval theme park. (S/T to Kate):
