Hockey Hilarity: Real Mature Yahoo, Real Mature

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! I don’t know about you gals and guys, but It’s been so long since I’ve seen I’ve seen a hockey game, I can’t even remember what the game looks like, what the players do, when to cheer, when to jeer, when to jump for joy, when to cry into my beer (which is root beer of course, I don’t drink alcohol… enough).

Hockey Hilarity: Claude Giroux Wants The Flyers To Remember Names

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! This year, the Philadelphia Flyers finally drafted for need at a position rather than the best player available when they picked up Samuel Morin as their first selection at 11th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He’s kinda hard to forget as he is 6’6″ tall and weighs a solid 203 lbs for a 17-year-old kid who is from Lac-Beauport, Quebec. Morin is projected to be a shutdown defender …
