Tuesday Links: Blues Go Vintage Clothes Shopping

New old jerseys, fuck cancer, a true patriot rides into the sunset, John Adams is a badass, and Buster Bluth is a lead farmer.

Good god, those are sexy...
Good god, those are sexy...

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! And if you're anything like my family, I also hope you stopped yelling at each other and bitching about each other on Facebook long enough to watch a few colorful explosions in the sky!


  • The rumors of the Blues getting a new set of threads seem to be true. [Icethetics]
  • Hildy approves. [SLGT]
  • Want to check out some future Blues? Or just need to get even a tiny hockey fix? Then check out the Blues Development Camp this week, including brand spanking new first round pick Robby Fabbri, among several others. [STLToday]
  • The Blues requesting to go to arbitration on a new deal for Vladimir Sobotka? Probably a good call for both sides. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray has been diagnosed with cancer. Fuck cancer. (CrossCheckRaise agrees...I'm sure you do too, but he's the one who passed along the link to boot.) [Senators]
  • Predators center Mike Fisher will miss the next 4-6 months with a ruptured Achilles tendon. So he'll be forced to stay in bed with Carrie Underwood for 6 months while the rest of his team gets the privilege of being pummeled in the head night in and night out in their epic battle to be slightly less worse than the Winnipeg Jets. How sad for Mike. [On the Forecheck]
  • In recent summers, the once alluring call of the Detroit Red Wings to top-tier free agents has seemed to dull considerably. J.J. from Kansas tries to pinpoint an answer as to why, and generally reaches the conclusion that no one gives a shit if they win the Stanley Cup anymore. Which is what we've been trying to tell them for 15 goddamn years! Also, Detroit is basically Harrenhal at this point. [Winging It In Motown]
  • Speaking of things that have gone downhill quickly, three KHL teams will not be participating in the upcoming season, including the defending runners-up. The league that not that long ago seemed to reignite the hockey world's Cold War seems to be cracking. Happy to have found your escape pod, Jori Lehtera! [Puck Daddy]
  • Jason Spezza believes that becoming a member of the Dallas Stars gives him a chance to win The Cup. Though to be fair, he'll say anything if it'll keep him out of having to be in Nashville. Whoa boy, the Chambers Pot is gonna be fun this year! [Defending Big D]
  • You may have missed it over the holiday, but USA Hockey flags flew at half mast on The Fourth, as Chris Peters announced he will no longer be running United States of Hockey, the one stop source for everything involving US national teams, especially Our Tournament, aka the World Juniors. Peters will be moving full time to CBS Sports, where he'll still get to cover USA Hockey, among other things. We give you a 21-Seth Jones slapshot Salute as you leave. [United States of Hockey]
  • This afternoon will be the first of two semifinals, between Brazil and Germany. As much as I'd love to see it, I honestly don't know how Germany possibly loses this game, especially since... [Pro Soccer Talk]
  • ...Brazil will be missing not only their captain Thiago Silva (yellow cards), but their national superstar Neymar (broken vertebra), who means everything to Brazilian fans. Everything. Some rumors say that if Brazil makes the final, Neymar could be able to tough it up and play, but holy crap I hope he doesn't, for his sake. [SBNation World Cup]
  • Babies fucking love Nine Inch Nails. At least this awesome baby does anyway. (Sticktap to @hmilfeld) [Spin]
  • CCR wants you to help decide on the Best GIF of June. Do it. DO IT! it... [SBNation]
  • John Adams was the fucking greatest. If he thought you were a dipshit, he'd not only tell you to your face that you're a dipshit, he'd describe in great, precise detail the manner in which you would dip into the shit, as well as the specifics of the shit into which you were dipping - and he didn't give a fuck who you were. Here are seven of the best times he did just that, and the legendary men to whom he did. (Sticktap to Hildy.) [mental_floss]

Perhaps you're familiar with Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, a popular web series that literally could not be explained any clearer than that.

Well, Joel McHale of Community and E!'s The Soup (remember Talk Soup? That.) recently tried his own similar kind of show, with a guest appearance by Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), only they were grabbing a bit of a stronger pick-me-up...

Thank you, I'm here all week - don't forget to tip your link master!
