And watch a shitty safety video.

  • A Wayne Gretzky rookie card recently went for over $450,000 at an auction recently. And oh fuck get Darren Rovell off my fucking timeline. [The Sporting News]
  • The Coyotes bought out forward Antoine Vermette in a deal that should probably shock very few people . . . except for the whole no movement clause being waived and whatnot. [Sportsnet]
  • Those playing the NHL's Farcical Aquatic Ceremony the World Cup of Hockey as RFA's will be insured during the event through a deal between the NHL and NHLPA. Probably wise. [TSN]
  • Check out this INSANE trick shot from a KHL player. There is nothing legal about this play, but there is a shitload of awesome about it. [Deadspin]


  • For David Ortiz's last visit to Seattle, the Mariners gave him (among other things) a fresh salmon. That's so fucking Seattle, man! [SB Nation / #Lookit]

  • I wasn't even a Rams fan, but . . . seriously, fuck the NFL. [SB Nation]


  • Abita Brewing Company of Abita Springs, Louisiana (across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans) does good beers and stuff. One of them? Turbodog, a really tasty brown ale. [Untappd]


First . . . ever wanted to know what an oversized NERF gun would do? (S/T to CrossCheckRaise):

Things like that.

And . . . if you attended the MST3K Reunion version of RiffTrax Live, they riffed on a train wreck of a safety video called "Shake Hands With Danger". Here's the original:

Holy fuck this is awful. And 23 minutes long.


The SLGT Links Department will be on vacation next week, so unless someone jumps in and does them, we won't have links next week.

However, BluesMay has your links fix the NEXT Monday (the 22nd), or somewhere around that time. You know how this works by now, I hope:

  • @BluesMay
  • slgtlinks AT gmail DOT com
  • Or post your links in the comments below, and we'll link to those comments next week.

And if someone steps up to do links next Monday and I'm made aware of who it is before the fact, I'll figure out a way to tell people and stuff.
