Fuck that dumb, slow-developing zombie show on AMC. The Blues are The Walking Dead.


  • We got our injury updates yesterday. Jay Bouwmeester, Carl Gunnarsson, Jake Allen and Magnus Paajarvi are all week-to-week. Paul Stastny is day-to-day and may play tonight (with what Kelly Chase stated was a "broken cheekbone"), presumably with a face cage. Which of these Blues will the team miss the most? [SLGT]
  • Chris Butler and Ty Rattie were called up under emergency conditions. [Blues]
  • And then Ryan Reaves drew on Rattie's face with a permanent marker. [Frozen Notes]
  • Something about "a Kid named Ells". Brian Elliott is a grown-ass man, though. Anyway, here's this. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • Dan doesn't want to see Robby Fabbri shipped to Tampa for Jonathan Drouin and gives his reasoning. [SLGT]
  • Nelly lyrics, as read by David Backes . . . fascinating. [SLGT FanShots]

  • There shall be eight hockey-styled contests this evening, including the local one. [ 01/12/2016]


  • Ryan Whitney recounted his KHL experience at The Players' Tribune yesterday, and it is enthralling. (S/T to Hoosier Blue) [The Players' Tribune]
  • Four goals, including his 500th career goal, made for one hell of a fucking weekend for Alex Ovechkin . . . hey, remember a few years back when everyone thought his career was toast? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. [Deadspin]
  • A huge loss for the Maple Leafs, as James van Riemsdyk will be out six to eight weeks with a broken foot. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Josh Leivo was recalled to take JvR's roster spot. What he means to the Leafs' youth movement. [Sportsnet]
  • Ryan Lambert looks at the Jets and their greatest failing this season in What We Learned. [Puck Daddy]
  • A couple oldies and a proverbial rabbit's foot are why the Panthers are so damn hot. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Robyn Regehr returned to Calgary to officially retire as a Flames player. [USA Today]
  • Meanwhile, ON the ice for Calgary, Karri Ramo done fucked up . . . but unlike Jake Allen from last week, it didn't cost him. [SB Nation]
  • Craig Button looks at some 2016 NHL Entry Draft prospects. [TSN]
  • Expansion could be voted on during the All-Star Break . . . IN NashVegas. How ironic! [The Sin Bin]

  • As Hoosier Blue noted yesterday . . . people love or hate David Bowie (I happen to adore his music), but his influence in a large variety of fields--not just rock 'n roll or really music in general--is far-reaching. May he rest in peace. [BBC]
  • He taught us a few things about space. [Mental Floss]

  • My wife and I gave her stepfather a bottle of Knappogue Castle 12 for Christmas. I had a rocks glass of it this past weekend. And oooohhhhhh my. I highly recommend it. Since it's a 12-year single malt whiskey, it'll cost you. But if you enjoy fine whiskey, it's worth it. [The Whiskey Jug]


Yes, Hoosier Blue posted a video encompassing three hours worth of David Bowie music . . . but I wanted to post more, because Goddamnit, David Bowie was great.

We'll start with an interesting collaboration he did with Mick Jagger in the mid 80's, when they covered "Dancing In The Street":

Then, "Life On Mars?":

Finally, the first single from his final album, which was just released last week. This song--like the album it appears on--is entitled "Blackstar":

RIP, Ziggy Stardust.

Hoosier Blue is back at it tomorrow. BluesMay returns Thursday. I return Saturday.
