As Long As We’ve Got Each Other

Sure the hockey season is now over, and all 35 hockey fans are totally saddened by that. However, today we bring you a fine hockey video that is notable. The reason for that is because this is from the Blues fanfest held sometime during the season which featured a “celebrity” hockey game. With the game down to penalty shots, the Yellow team turned their lonely eyes to a man who wanted to show them his smile again; that man, Growing Pains dad Alan Thicke.

Sure he’s not super slick on the skates, and his triple deke move left a lot to be desired, but c’mon, it’s Alan Thicke! After all, he did help raise Kirk Cameron into a fine young gentleman and there isn’t a price that can be put on that. Plus he takes the net out but managed to get the shot in goal before he did so, that’s a skill move. Finally, it’s hard to hear, but after he scores they play the Growing Pains theme song which is one of the best of all time. So, all in all, a highly worthy clip for his resume in the TV dad Hall-of-Fame.

Another Example of Why No One Cares for Hockey

The Montreal Toronto Maple Leafs, (this sport is stupid excepting the playoff beards and the fighting) besides having a very imposing name, have been one of the most storied franchises in hockey. Right now they are struggling to make the playoffs and lost last night in an important game against the Boston Bruins where the 8th playoff spot was on the line. The Maple Leafs lost 6-2. Recently named Player of the Week goalie Vesa Toskala was taken out of the game with 3 minutes remaining and the Leafs down by 3. To further illustrate how efficient his game has been recently, and why he definitely deserved the Player of the Week award, check out this goal he allowed the other night against the New York Islanders.

That was only from 197  feet away, I can see how he might have found that so difficult. No wonder no one watches anymore.
