Friday Links: Anger

Anger, bad goal-tending, questionable hits, ignorant pundits, irritating questions and more.

T. G. I. Fuck it.

Blues News:

  • The Blues played last night. Sort of. In a dramatic turn of events, the offense showed up and was let down by goal-tending. (Take note, all of you who said that Allen's run of good play meant immediate coronation as #1 net minder). Justin has video footage of the dumpster fire. [STLGT]
  • For a decidedly more upbeat recap, check out the New York state of mind. Or don't. Whatever. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • This guy thinks that last night's game was nothing to worry about because the Blues still have lots of wins and we look completely different than last season. I think the Blues always get lots of wins but their magical ability to completely shit the bed during important winnable games certainly IS a cause for concern. I am beginning to wonder if this guy just started following the Blues last month. [Rant Sports]
  • Another awesome write-up on Blues rookie sensation Colton Parayko. [ESPN]
  • An overview of Blues Prospects. [Fansided]

Hockey News:

  • 11 other games last night. Dallas won.  Minnesota won.  DAMMIT. []
  • 4 games tonight.  Fuck 'em. []
  • Puck Daddy has 3 stars form last night, which is 3 more than the Blues had. Mats Zuccarello and Henrik Lundqvist both get shout-outs. I hope their favorite TV shows get cancelled. [Puck Daddy]
  • Puck Daddy also has power rankings.  He put New York ahead of us, so at least that part was validated last night. Maybe it's his fault we lost.  Maybe if we would have been ahead of the Rangers in the rankings we could have beaten them. Fuck you, puck daddy. [Puck Daddy]
  • Another questionable hit last night.  Boston's Marchand was shooting the puck when he got blind-sided by Colorado Captain Landeskog. Then, when Landeskog skated over to apologize, Marchand directed his anger right at Landeskog's face with a pretty shitty sucker-punch. The hit was blind, but it was shoulder on shoulder.  Marchand's surprise bitch slap looked more egregious to me. [Puck Daddy]
  • Our old pal T.J. Oshie scored a goal last night thanks to the hard work of Evgeny Kuznetsov. I don't want to kill the anger vibe but that is as pretty a pass as you're going to see.  [Puck Daddy]
  • A look at the bigger 'draft lottery' losers in recent history. Man, if I was a Flyers fan I would be PISSED.  On second thought, since the Blackhawks came out winners, I think I will be pissed anyway. [ESPN]

Other Crap:

  • 6 films that would have been infuriating to work on. [Cracked]
  • 19 irritating questions, to put you in the mood. [Distractify]
  • Ever tried suing an attractive, successful pop/country star for 'stealing' lyrics from your douchebag song that no one has ever heard, only to have a judge dismiss your case by flippantly quoting lyrics from said pop/country star? Man, I hate when that happens. [Daily Mail]
  • Today's beer of the day is Anger by Greenbush. This smooth dark ale has a nice malty flavor and subtle hints of chocolate at the finish. Best experienced when furious. You're welcome. [Untappd]


Now, channel your anger with a great tune by a band featuring one of the hottest women of punk rock.  Or don't. You rebel, you.
