The best part about Saturdays: Saturday nights. The worst part about Sundays: Saturday nights.
- The Blues had auditions for their Ice Girls yesterday. [Blues]
- Incidentally, how could the NHL better market to women? First of all, cut out the Ice Girl bullshit. [The Hockey News]
- Now for actual news: turns out the arbitrator didn't have to make the call after all - the Montreal Canadiens and P.K. Subban have agreed on an 8 year extension worth an AAV of $9 million. [Habs Eyes on the Prize]
- Elsewhere in the FlorthEast division, our old pal Ben Bishop signed a 2 year extension giving him $5.95 mill a year with the Tampa Bay Lightning. I love the guy & he had a fantastic year next year...but that's a lot of money on a goalie with only one season as a starter under his belt. [Raw Charge]
- Puck Daddy's August series this year sees each fan base chronicle their team's most disappointing season, player, jersey, etc. Finally, one where the Blues' entries actually has competition and room for debate! Actually, there's quite a lot of room for debate as to which Blues season was most disappointing season. Have that debate below! In the mean time, here was the first entry, for the New York Rangers... [Puck Daddy]
- ...and here are the Calgary Flames. P.S. Has anyone ever asked Ryan Lambert why such a red-blooded American patriot like him became a Calgary fan? Was it Iggy or something? Or was it just hipster bullshit? [Puck Daddy]
- You've all seen maps charting each US state's favorite sports teams, but how about their least favorite teams? See which states hate which NFL & NBA teams the most - along with other continents! Apparently Europe really hates the Ravens. [SBNation Look It]
- Former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver now has his own show on HBO that airs Sunday nights called Last Week Tonight. Here's why you should make a point to watch it. [Slate]
- McKayla Maroney threw out the first pitch at a White Sox game the other day - with a cartwheel. I don't know about McKayla, but I was impressed! [Big League Stew]
I want some of these jobs.
Tomorrow is Monday, so take all those links you didn't send me & pass them to DK!
