This happened just last week. The man is a living legend. And so is The Phil.
Johnny Gaudreau returned from his wrist injury last night, and will be welcomed back into the league with cheers of praise. What I don’t understand, is how people can like this guy? He’s been blatantly cheating for years and I’m fed up.
Every player will slash, or hack at an opponent’s stick, and that’s all good and fun. Sometimes you get called for slashing, and sometimes you can get away with it. Gaudreau though, has found a way to whack and smack away at his opponent’s sticks that goes completely unnoticed. Watch this video here:
All these comments whining about Johnny being “slashed” are completely missing what is happening. Gaudreau is punching their sticks! Each hit wears down the blade a bit more, and eventually that blade is going to break. He’s so subtle about it too, that sneaky little turd.
Feigning the injury was a good way to avert the attention from his stick slapping shenanigans. Though I see the truth, and the new equipment he has returned with is just further proof of his intent to push his blade bashing even further.
In no way are these gloves designed to protect. They’re designed to increase his punching abilities, and we need to be aware of this threat. Notice the “WA” on the wrist? Those are the beginning of the word Warrior. What do warriors do? They attack. He’s rubbing it in our faces.
November 26th has come and gone, and another year passes with NHL hockey. Having formed in 1917, and continued to keep happening at us, we can all be thankful for this wonderful day. Though we’re thankful for that day, something much more significant happened just a few short years later, something much more important to our current Pittsburgh Penguins. (Can you say “few” when you mean 5? Who knows.)
November 26, 1922 marks the date that famed English archaeologist, Howard Carter broke the seal on Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb, right below our very own PPG Paints Arena. Releasing the injury gnomes, and forever cursing our players to suffering and misery.
Let us take a moment to remember this tragedy, and remember to curse the name of Tutankhamun every time Crosby get’s hit in the head, Bonino get’s brain-freeze, or Hornqvist stubs his toe.
Screw you Tut.
Webcomic Spotlight! In the past I did several of these posts where I would choose a webcomic I enjoy (usually from one of my twitter friends) and give it a quick plug. After the tragic database fire of October 2016 those posts all perished and I want to start doing more.
Since I am adding my own webcomics back to my site one at a time I will start with those. The first up is Rebel Scum, a series I began around the time Disney’s Rebels TV show was announced. This comic is set in the Star Wars original trilogy timeline about 6 years before Episode IV and follows a young cargo thief named Tagg and his snarky droid R5.
Chapter 1 of Rebel Scum is only 23 strips long but I plan on continuing the plot a bit further. The next half dozen strips are already sketched and I’m pretty happy with where the story is headed.
So give it a read if you are into Star Wars and enjoy Rebels! It’s a quick, fun read!
