Jaric’s Mind is Otherwise Occupied

Marko Jaric has scored a measly 4 points over his last 6 games while averaging around 11 minutes a game, but I doubt that his ability to score on the court is bothering him too much. That’s because on Valentine’s Day Jaric married girlfriend and Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Adriana Lima, who was famously dubbed the “World’s Most Voluptuous Virgin” by GQ magazine. Lima, a devout Catholic has said in the past that “Sex is for after marriage. [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me.” So is it any wonder that in his first 6 games after he entered wedded bliss that he hasn’t been able to concentrate on the hard court? I don’t think I’d ever leave the house if I were married to Adriana Lima. Of course, Jaric’s points all came off free throws, he’s still 0-23 from the field but I’m willing to allow him any lapses in concentration, I’ve already forgotten what I was trying to write here for the last ten minutes while being distracted by google images

Hockey Fights are Always Fun

Tempers flared during a game between the US and Canadian sledge hockey teams at the Hockey Canada Cup last Wednesday leading to a full on brawl with everyone on the ice getting into the action. The whole thing starts after the Canadian goaltender, Paul Rosen, froze the puck with 1.7 seconds left and was hit by American Taylor Chace. Not wanting to feel left out, everyone else threw their hands into the ring and had a dance, to mix unrelated metaphors.

However, there is nothing more unfair than the ref being able to just shuffle you off the ice on your sledge, let the men fight!

Pop and Lock

The ability to catch and shoot quickly is a skill highly prized in basketball players, this high school player has the catch part down, but doesn’t quite finish out the way he probably wanted. Yeouch!

Semin Shoots it Long and Hard

On Saturday the Washington Capitals visited the Boston Bruins and pulled out a clutch 4-3 win in overtime thanks to flukey/awesome shot from Alexander Semin 22 seconds into overtime. Tim Thomas gets flat out embarrassed when this 80 foot shot sneaks past him, check out how he quick he heads off the ice, he knows he blew it.

S’ok, there’s still like 6 days left in the regular season and then of course, the obligatory 5 1/2 months of NHL playoff hockkey to come…
