New, comments

Well, I've got a lot of links for you today, but first . . . let us all point and laugh at the guy who thinks he can tell you how to be a better fan of the team you've probably been rooting for . . . for a long time.

Hi.

BLUES NEWS:

  • I forgot this yesterday, and I should've forgotten it forever, but it's worthy of at least public ridicule, anyway . . . the real way to look like a complete fucking cock in public is to tell people how they should be better fans of a team. So yeah, this guy looks like a complete fucking cock for telling me (and, now, you) how to be a better Blues fan. I know how to cheer for my team, jackass, without any kind of "intervention". Piss off, and have fun at your next rec league game. I don't need your fucking help. [The Hockey Writers]
  • A couple weeks ago, Hockey's Future put up their review of who the Blues picked at the 2014 NHL Draft, and it's a bit thorough since . . . well, the Blues picked 10 players. Not as thorough as Brian, though, but . . . hey. (S/T to hotchunkysalsa) [Hockey's Future]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Gee, one can only HOPE this is the Red Wings' last stand because it's gotta come at SOME point. That and more in Ryan Lambert's weekly What We Learned piece. [Puck Daddy]

  • Tuukka Rask can save a cannon shot. Literally. [Puck Daddy]
  • Remember when Nicklas Backstrom didn't get his silver medal because he didn't play in the gold medal game for Sweden because he failed a drug test? Well, he's finally getting that silver medal now. [Hockey Ramblings]
  • Marc Savard hasn't officially retired and is still technically part of the Bruins, but he's now a scout for the OHL's Ottawa 67's. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • During the season, Charles Wang backed out of a deal to sell the Islanders . . . and the guy who wanted to buy them is now suing Wang for doing so. [NY Daily News]

OTHER SHIT:

  • The United States men's national soccer team will go to Dublin for a friendly with Ireland on November 18th. Dublin, Ohio? Dublin, Georgia? One of the other many Dublins in the United States? No, no, no . . . Dublin, IRELAND. Cool! [SB Nation]
  • Ever seen a two-headed dolphin? Well, now you will. [Y! / Odd News]
