So for those of you that don't have Google as your home page, today's Google Doodle is in honor of the 112th birthday of the greatest man known to hockey, Mr. Frank Zamboni. The doodle today is an interactive one (assuming you have a good web browser) that actually opens up a game where you can play zamboni driver, resurfacing over increasingly difficult carvings on the ice. The game does have old school video game sounds, so if you are in a cubicle make sure your PC is on mute.
Happy playing and happy birthday Mr. Zamboni!
This is a pretty sick commercial With Rory and Tiger. Reminded me of the old juggling commercial Tiger did way back.
Okay, so I missed out on Nosce Te Ipsum's "Posters of Yore" thread (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/posters-yore#comment-1877663) about the most missed old-timers over the weekend and I'm feeling a little bummed out about it. So I decided that it might be fun to have an MGoFeelGood moment and throw some praise around: Who is/are your favorite current poster(s) and for what reason(s)?
I'll refrain from revealing my list because of my high-ranking position as moderator - wouldn't want to feel guilty for sending one of them to Bolivia for disagreeing with one of my opinions. Plus, I like to keep my favoritism on the down-low. But, since I didn't get to participate in Nosce's thread on Saturday, I will just say that I miss FormerlyAnonymous and Geaux Blue, two of my favorites and my MGoMentors.
(P.S. Whoever lists me as their favorite will get special treatment and maybe even extra MGoPoints in return. Kidding, of course. But not really.)
So while we're stuck waiting for the NHL to come back, the KHL is still playing. This silly goal took place in their recent all-star game on a penalty shot and I thought this shot was brilliant. I kind of feel bad for the goalie, who gets massively embarrased in this clip. Can anyone think of a sillier goal on a penalty shot than this one?
Apologies for the lack of an embed, but video streaming sites are banned here at my office, and I do not know how to embed from a Droid phone (which is how I watched the video). If someone could embed this clip I'd appreciate it! Also, I sent the link to Ace in the hopes that he would turn this into a GIF, maybe if we collectively guilt trip him he will.
EDIT: Thanks to user Trauber19 for linking to this GIF of the shot. I still think its worth it to watch the video though, because it has it from a couple angles.
