Mike Milbury is watching College Basketball.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Mike Milbury is watching College Basketball.


Mike Milbury only thinks he's watching college basketball, he actually turned on Cricket.  Not the British game that can last 5 days, a nature show about crickets.

Tom Wilson gets an "in-person" hearing for his stupid hit to the head last night.

There are no "in-person" hearings due to *gestures broadly* but it still means Player Safety is looking to throw the book at him

I can't believe that they didn't even call a minor on that.  I was watching on NHL Network when it happened - and you could tell that his brains were scrambled as soon as the hit was made.

It was a real slow motion moment.  He takes the hit, stands there for a second then hits his knees before going face down on the ice.  Edwards was yacking about the Caps player cross checking him to the head but you can see he was initially giving a shove with his stick and then falling over when Carlo just dropped.

Good that means 5+ is available.  Hopefully it's something like the rest of the season as maybe 'that' will be enough this time to get it through his head that giving people potential lifelong negative quality of life injuries just isn't acceptable.  But knowing the Department of Lack of Player Safety, they'll probably fine Carlo for bruising Wilson's shoulder...sigh

Dangle put it best, players with more PiMs than games played should not be deciding punishment.

Um... here's something bizarre. VGK is in San Jose and the hotel they're staying in declared bankruptcy yesterday. The Knights were kicked out of the hotel prior to yesterday's game.

Walked by that hotel many times, including times when going to the Sharks home ice for game coverage.

LVRJ also has an article on it.

Back in the 70s there was a bar in Denver that would raffle off a brick on Monday nights & the winner could chuck it at the bar's tv (replaced weekly...after replacement costs deducted, all raffle proceeds went to assorted local charities) at any time they wanted during Monday Night Football.  Apparently 85% of the time it was chucked at Howard Cosell.

_/supposedly there were all sorts of home grown rules that went along with the raffle.  If you bought a ticket you couldn't leave until after the game was over ... but the winner of the brick 'had' to throw it sometime before the midpoint of the 4th quarter.  So people would bring transistor radios & would yell out the play by play calls to everyone in the bar.  It became quite the event, I think Howard even showed up one afternoon when there was a Bronco game that night.
_/_/sounds like fun actually

Evening folks. I'm afraid to watch the Canuck because as soon as I start watching, they lose. Case in point, they are already up by a goal.
