Saturday Links - People Named Tyler Suck At Hockey

Blues host Dallas. The 'Cock is winning. Your Central favorite? #JagrForever, maybe literally. Surprises, both pleasant and shitty. Newfoundlanders are smart. The science of hangovers. And Mental Floss outtakes. Sorry, you're stuck with me again.

I can remember when the original Minnesota North Stars were a division rival of the Blues. Now it's these schlubs from Dallas.

Whatever. I want my childhood back.

And actually, the Tyler that plays for Dallas is pretty good at hockey, especially this year. Maybe want to put a body on him tonight.
