You know how we know this parent Joseph Cordes takes his daughter's hockey games too seriously? How far would you go to help your daughter's team get an advantage during a high school hockey game? Would you stand in the corner of an arena and shoot a laser pointer into the eyes of the opposing goalie? Are you that crazy? Well, Cordes is. And now the cops want to have a word with Super Dad. JUMP!
The Edmonton Oilers Twitter account (
@NHL_Oilers) caught up with this guy during last night's 3-1 home loss to Dallas. His name? Kim Martin. Not joking. Now that our meager NHL coverage is out of the way, let's turn our attention to baseball. The Yankees got started last night with a 11-0 drubbing of USF. The real action gets going today with a full schedule highlighted by Yankees-Phillies. First pitch - 1:05. Indians-Reds at 3:05. Let's get rolling!
Most coaches just slink away to the locker room, maybe hurl a few choice epithets at the ref when they get ejected from a game. Not Toledo Walleyes coach Nick Vitucci. No, Vitucci throws shit, or at least he did when he got ejected from an ECHL game against Wheeling last week. After getting tossed, Vitucci threw several water bottles and even a stick at the ref before leaving. Well done, Nick. Well done. JUMP!
Yes, there was a small story out last summer about the 2011 Miss USA Alyssa Campanella being a Vancouver Canucks fan. There was a slight buzz about Campanella having this fascination with the Canucks and that she might be a traitor. But, without photos of her actually being a traitor, the bulldog Internet media backed off its yellow journalism. Um, but now we have photos of Campanella cheating on the U.S.A. How dare she? JUMP!
Gotta give Rob Gronkowski credit for being a man of his word and not backing out of his puck-spiking gig at last night's Worcester Sharks game. There was Gronk, cast on his ankle from his recent surgery, spiking a puck on one leg after being driven to center ice while sitting on the tailgate of a truck. Can't really blame the guy for showing up even with injury when he only made $405,000 in base salary this season. JUMP!
Of course you can type in fantasy RTs to your favorite hot chick on Twitter. Just follow Edmonton Oilers D Ryan Whitney's lead on how to get in Kate Upton's virtual pants: fake RT her. Whitney really did celebrate his 29th birthday yesterday and was thinking what every other pig out there was thinking - motorboating Kate Upton would be the best birthday gift - EVER! Of course someone is going to take this out of context & have Upton dating Whitney. Can't wait.
Remember the Vancouver riots after the Stanley Cup and how the idiots involved acted like they were Euro scum? Guys such as the Raging CanAsian who thought he was Billy Badass with his designer glasses and a Canucks shirt? Well, the morons aren't finished being Euro-Canadian douchebags. Here's the church where Bruins LW Milan Lucic took the cup on his visitation day and where family still visits for services. JUMP!
Let's be clear about this to those of you born in 1990-present and we know there are many of you. Wayne Gretzky NEVER played for the Chicago Blackhawks so don't be going on Twitter and telling your boys that you're getting a Gretzky Blackhawks home sweater. They shouldn't exist. Same goes for the road sweater. This is Wayne at his fantasy camp where campers pay an estimated $12,000 to put Wayne in whatever sweater you wish. JUMP!
Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin has a new pad and, well... we're not all that impressed. The joint is big, that's for sure. It cost a lot of money -- $4.2 million to be exact. There's nothing terribly special about it, though. First of all, it's in Virginia. Second of all, it has none of the stupid, garish things athletes have in their homes. Not even a pool. The coolest thing here is Ovechkin's giant deck. Take a look for yourself.
So you're a Canadian kid attending the 2012 NHL All Star Game in Ottawa, well don't disrespect the good ol' US of A during our National Anthem. This little douchebag was talking the entire time the camera was on him and then put his huge hat over his head. Show some respect son. During the skills portion of the NFL All Star Game a goalie went Tebowing and actually blocked the shot. Check all this out and more after the JUMP!
Of course BC was starting to wonder if Matthew Barnaby would ever return to Twitter after his insane early December DUI arrest. Our hero was driving on the rim of his Porsche with sparks flying all over the road. The former NHLer had also hit something along his route home from the bar. It was one of those moments where it would seem logical to step away from alcohol for possibly ever. Pfft, not Barns. Dude is back on Twitter & drinking - Pepsi? JUMP!
We'll have more on this tomorrow, but quickly, NHL All-Star Draft viewers are unloading on Alyonka Larionov who is getting her big TV break as a social media sideline reporter tonight. Her dad is Igor, the famous Russian who had huge success in the NHL with Detroit. Alyonka, once the arm candy of Alex Ovechkin, has been working her way up the hockey media landscape & viewers aren't digging the rookie. Twitter isn't being very nice. JUMP!
If you like grizzly injuries, then we've got a treat for you! Washington Capitals forward Matt Hendricks suffered one of the most disgusting ear injuries we've ever seen after catching a bouncing Alex Ovechkin shot in the side of his head. The shot split Hendricks' ear nearly in half. Of course, he just got some stitches and was back on the ice the next day. Here's the story and the disgusting photo. Check it!
You want a piece of sports history? Well, it's going to cost you... big time. Defenseman Ken Morrow's Miracle On Ice jersey is up for auction and guess what. The price is rising pretty quickly. The auction started at $5,000, but the price was already past $11,000 Friday afternoon. Oh, and there's 20-odd days left for bidding. We're gonna guess this one goes for somewhere north of $20,000. Take a look for yourself and throw down a bid!
Thanks to our friends @CrossingBroad last night for having their eyes open for Flyers Middle Finger/Backwards Hat Guy. We stopped paying attention at 3-0 NYI & figure Philly bro went home and beat his dog. AFC/NFC Championship weekend is finally here and that means BC will be in Vegas for the festivities. Kevin The Intern is busting his Vegas cherry on this trip. Of course we're treating. The guy is 30 days out of Purdue, mooching off our BJ stack. Let's get rolling!
Oilers left winger Taylor Hall took a skate across his head the other night in Columbus - during warmups. A freak fall resulted in Hall taking out his teammate and Corey Potter trying to avoid the bodies strewn across the ice. No chance. Potter's skate clipped Hall's head and you now get a look at what a skate can do to a face. Not a good look. JUMP!
