Nate DiMeo's Plan to Save the NHL

Not a bad idea but the money grubbing owners would never go for it.

For The Love of Sport: Like Sports Only Colder.

Looks like the Bruins are at least going to be more willing to stand up for each other and drop the gloves on occasion this season. Gradioc: seems like the Canes are back after an off season last year.

Landis appeals

Landis knows he doesn't have a chance. He's just trying to keep his name out there for potential book deals etc.

Stephen Ireland busted for lying.

This hardly ranks as a "white lie." He continued to spin provably false tales about dead grandmothers after he had been nailed. The jury is still out on whether he's a pathological liar but the signs are there. When caught, they just keep spinning and lying and lying... Give this time to percolate. His own coach has referred to his behaviour as stupid. If the clown is indeed an habitual liar, it will be known soon enough. I still have doubts about the miscarriage story.

Scarborough Sports Marketing survey finds Steelers have largest female fan base

As long as they're not linebacker large, everything's fine. Nice voluptuous Pittsburgh women, wearing those sexy parkas, those feminine touques, those big alluring winter boots..... ah, never mind...

Stephen Ireland busted for lying.

Ah those poor grandparents the world over...their premature and fabricated deaths must be the most commonly used excuse to shirk responsibility. As for the sad fool who got trapped in his own web of lies...OH MAN is he going to pay for it from fans and opposing players! That is unfortunate regarding his girlfriend but how exactly do we know that is the truth? Since he's pulled this stunt it's highly probable he's done it in the past. The strange thing about pathological liars is they can never fathom how easy it is to see through their lies.

Here is a blog I write about hockey:

Quebec Jewish hockey player agrees to play on Sabbath

From the article: "There were a lot of things such as religious holidays that were in the way, and we were able with different rabbis of the religion to help us out to make do, and make some concessions." Loopholes in religion. It's funny how anything can be justified, manipulated or sanctioned with a little creative thinking...

ESPN Anchor Scott Van Pelt is a Flamer

"Pawned?" VanPelt may have ripped him a new one but I don't think he's sitting on a musty shelf in some main street second-hand hock shop (I know you meant "pwned," just having a laugh.) One thing I always find interesting about internet flame wars is that: 1. The people piling on usually claim they loathe such types of threads but readily engage and help to make them some of the most popular "discussions." and 2. Those responding to the "outrageous and disrespectful" behaviour of the individual they are criticizing inevitably engage in the exact same type of comments they are attacking.

Non-Prospect Diaries

If his blog is only self-edited I'll rate it as some pretty good writing. Some good observations and thought provoking angles. I'll definitely be checking back in to read his blog from time to time.

Bill Henry is Not Dead

As someone else mentioned, this is not uncommon. I remember a few years back reading about a few people posing as NHL players. With the exception of the highest profile sports stars, most pro athletes are relatively faceless. Which makes you wonder what the benefit would be in most cases.

A WHA mystery: where is the 'faux' Avco World Trophy?

Great piece of hockey nostalgia. Cheers.
