Goal horns from all 30 NHL teams.

1. What order?
2. Don't know if it's the recording or my cheap speakers, but most of these sound like crap.
3. And in Ottawa, the silence is deafening.

One of my friends was cycling in Southern California yesterday. During a climb he left a guy in his sixties in his dust. He looked back and the guy was nowhere to be seen -- he was already passing him over his other shoulder.

They're zooming and trade the lead spot for a while, until finally on a last hill the guy blows him away on a climb and has to wait for my friend.

Afterwards, he finds out the guy is John Howard, who once rode a bike 152.2 mph.

So I have been hearing a lot about how southern cities like Tampa don't understand hockey and because of that shouldn't be allowed to have teams. I am beginning to wonder if that should also apply to basketball teams after seeing this week's SI cover.

I know that Texans aren't the sharpest tools in the shed to start with, but I would guess that even they should know that you don't want your fans chanting "DEFENSE" when your team has the ball (look at the graphic scroll on the upper deck facade)

Given the position of the players (the Lakers chasing), this appears to be a breakaway after a defensive stand, perhaps a steal. Maybe the graphic button puncher (I suppose there is a word for his position) is just a bit slow on the draw.
