Grand Rapids Griffins player Jordin Tootoo made a sweet little boy's day after giving him his hockey stick during a recent game.
Every single television critic has written their "10 Best of 2011" article and it's all, "Oooh, Breaking Bad." "Let's hear it for Community." "Friday Night Lights should never leave!" "Do you love Louie? I love Louie. You should love LOUIE!" Fuck them! All their damn lists are the same year after year. Here are some of the other things that happened on television when the critics were playing Ookie Cookie with each other.
The Philadelphia Flyers barely missed a .01-second overtime goal this week against the San Jose Sharks. The puck hadn't crossed the line in time and the game had to go to shootout. This is about as close as it gets.
Despite a deal reached last November to post game highlights on Youtube, the National Hockey League has apparently requested that Youtube disable the embed codes for their newer clips. A strange move. Either the NHL wants to force clip-watchers to visit the NHL Youtube account in some exercise in branding, or they're unhappy with the whole Youtube deal and are intentionally crippling it ahead of pulling their video entirely.
UPDATE: Though no one wants to go on record or issue a release, the NHL assures a grieving public that this was merely a temporary glitch. Embed codes have been restored to NHL clips on Youtube. Go with God.
