Thursday Links - Don't Be A Jerk

Podcast. Worrying about Stewart. Eviscerating troll dicks. Scrivens stands on his head. Another Blackhawks fan plays the role of "jerk". Rick Reilly gets annihilated. And music from Frozen! (Kinda.) It's Thursday, y'all.

At least the Isles didn't wear THESE monstrosities at Yankee Stadium.

In the time it took for me to type this sentence, Ben Scrivens made three more saves.


  • Beyond Checkerdome Episode 28 looks at the week that was, including kicking motions (or lack thereof, yet still called as such) and other things. [SLGT]
  • Robb tells us the numbers confirm what we all probably knew . . . we need to start worrying about Chris Stewart being a liability on this team. [SLGT]
  • Everyone who responded to this dickhead yesterday deserves a gold star. Also, I learned through this cluster of posts that comments reaching the requisite number of recs go BLUE instead of GREEN now. Well done, kids. Well done. Chad Chaddington III can go fuck himself, for all I care. [SLGT]


  • Scores. Outdoor game and two indoor games, both of which had more exciting things happen than the stupid Yankee Stadium game. [ 01/29/14]
  • Plenty of games on the docket today. Amazingly, none involve the Blues, who have been dominant on Thursdays this year. [ 01/30/14]
  • The Oilers gave up a lot of shots last night. A total of 100 shots were fired by the Sharks, 59 of them were on goal. Zero of them went past Ben Scrivens, and he earned the shutout, getting the most saves by a goaltender in a shutout in the history of the NHL. Wowee, was that good. [SB Nation]
  • It appears Blackhawks fans are continuing a great tradition this season of being dicks in the high-profile way. This time, it appears someone in a Chicago jersey threw a Canucks sweater on the ice in the final seconds of Chicago's 5-2 victory over Vancouver, though it was made to look as if a Canucks fan did it. What sucks is that many Blackhawks fans are, y'know, good hockey fans. These dickheads ruin it for them. [Puck Daddy]
  • Megalodon's top five tweets of the week include tweets about the shit-filled Blues-Red Wings game! [Battle of California]
  • Ryan Lambert takes on those that eschew numbers, Francophones, Cal Clutterbuck and other people, places and things in his weekly Power Rankings. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Phoenix Coyotes will be known as the Arizona Coyotes starting next season. [Coyotes]


  • Rick Reilly is a turd. Fox Sports 1's Katie Nolan ripped him to shreds on Crowd Goes Wild. Well done, ma'am. (S/T to UIWWildThing) [Deadspin]
  • Boy oh boy, look at the customer reviews for these sugar-free gummy bears. More like a laxative. (S/T again to UIWWildThing) [Amazon]
  • Apparently, there's a jelly donut-looking rock on Mars. (S/T to DanGNR for pointing this out to me) [Twitter / @apod]
  • Colorado is renaming some of its' tallest mountain peaks after Broncos players for the Super Bowl. By the way, when I return for links duty, I'll either be really happy or kinda sad. Go Broncos! [SB Nation]


From the Arkham Asylum comes this touching number from Mr. Freeze. (S/T to Kate):

Now that was creepy as all fuck.

And I'm done. J-Mill's got your weekend covered. Have you but one link or video to spare? Two? Three? A shitload? Well, let him know:
