Holiday Weekend Open Bar - The Big Tease

I'm working a strange schedule the next couple days and it's probably going to be a slow news weekend, so here's an open bar. With a huge tease! And a few other things. So crack open an ice cold frosty (or, well, several) and enjoy the long weekend.

So I'm slated to get home at around 6am MDT the next two mornings, perhaps later . . . in fact, when this goes to post, I'll still be at work . . . so in lieu of waiting until then to do links, I'm just gonna take today and tomorrow off.

Because America.

There are a few bits to talk about before I return Monday (and J-Mill comes your way for the next week or so after that):

  • Talk about your big cockteases. Icethetics got a glimpse of the new Blues home uniform. They'll have more Monday. [Twitter / @Icethetics]
  • As mentioned yesterday, the Blues will open their development camp to the public this Monday thru Wednesday. Our Prospects Department, Brian Weidler, needs your help if you're going to attend! [SLGT]
  • A minor signing for the Blues . . . they picked up a guy that'll likely be with the Wolves most of next season, inking former Sharks winger John McCarthy on a one-year, two-way deal worth $600K NHL / $200K AHL. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • The Senators picked up a center to partially fill the void left by Jason Spezza . . . signing former Predators and Red Wings pivot man David Legwand to a two-year deal. [USA Today]
  • You can keep tracking free agents with this . . . there were a few other minor signings in the last couple days. [TSN]
  • Here's a piece about the Sharks' decision to add Ice Girls to their in-game entertainment package . . . and how it's basically a "middle finger" to their female fans. And holy shit, look how many comments are on this one. Nearly 370 as of the time I linked this. Oh, and these guys signed John Scott, so everything is pretty much horrible this offseason for Sharks fans. (S/T to HallPlante, who suggested that maybe Scott become an Ice Girl so he could do something useful on the ice for once) [Fear the Fin]
  • Colombia lost to Brazil 2-1 (Germany beat France 1-0, but that game apparently was a snooze) and Brazil lost Neymar to an awful injury, but check out this MASSIVE bug that ended up on James Rodriguez's arm during his penalty kick goal . . . holy fucking shit. [Deadspin / Screamer]
  • The oldest American turned 116 yesterday. 116. She was born in the 19th century. That is incredible. [Y! / AP]
  • And a video . . . it's Doc Emrick and his many words for passing the puck, remixed to sound like Daft Punk. I may have posted this before, but it bears repeating. And was posted in the links comments yesterday by Childhood Trauma:

Doc Emrick is the Goddamn greatest. And Daft Punk is awesome too.

So again . . . no links again until Monday. And J-Mill will have most of next week. But there's no reason for you NOT to load up on Monday's links with a bunch of awesome shit! So send it off:

And to be clear . . . HUP HOLLAND HUP!
