Play With Sharks and You’ll Get Bit

sharkhousefullDesperate to show everyone how big of a San Jose Sharks fan you are? Well, Winges Architects and Hooper Construction & Remodeling have made the perfect structure for you, a giant play-house complete with a “ice-rink” playing surface on the ground-floor and locker room on the second floor.

The special building will be raffled off in a benefit for Rebuilding Together Peninsula, an organization that rehabilitates homes and community facilities for low-income homeowners and neighbors.

Other awesome features of this play-house include a mock Zamboni control panel, real Sharks team souvenirs, climbing apparatus, and of course, a kick-ass fiberglass shark head with dorsal fin and tail sure to scare the crap out of your neighbors.

This would go awesome on my lawn, if only I had one. Or if I was a Sharks fan…

Raffle tickets are only $10, so readers out in the San Jose area, get to work winning this for me.

Conan More Important Than Hockey

NBC is broadcasting most of the Stanley Cup Finals this year, planning on airing games 1,2,5,6,7 but choosing to NOT show games 3 and 4 which could result in the network missing the actual championship. The reason for such a move? Conan O’Brien’s debut in the Tonight Show is supposed to take place on June 1, the same date that Game 3 would happen. Since NBC has been planning this move for several years now, it is reasonably understandable that they would want to ensure that his debut goes off without a hitch. The last thing the network needs is for the hockey game to go long and push back Conan’s start.

That said, it’s nice to see the clout that the NHL wields; they are unable to stand up against a guy who used to regularly feature a masturbating bear on his show…

I Welcome Our Robot Overlords

The future of soccer is being developed by Japanese scientists. Watch these robots square off against one another in a shootout battle and admit it, you wouldn’t notice if they replaced the real players. I for one appreciate these robots lack of flopping and whining, plus, then all the women who flock to professional soccer players would have to look elsewhere, like perhaps to the sports blog world. Wouldn’t that be something!

Well, The Cut is Flattering At Least…

In 1996, then Patriots head coach Bill Parcells got into a whole heap of media trouble when he referred to wide receiver Terry Glenn as a “she” during a press conference, inferring that Glenn was weak and that was why he wasn’t on the practice field. The coach of Figueirense in the Brazilian soccer league, Roberto Fernandes, would certainly understand that kind of inspirational tactic. That’s because he has taken to putting his players in dresses when they are not putting out an effort level he’s happy with.

The second-division team has seen a noticeable effect after this new tactic; midfielder Jairo had his best game of the season after being forced to wear a dress during practice. I think this would work wonders with Terrell Owens…
