Come One, Come All To The Sweatiest Canadian Gala! Ever.

Today, the internet got it’s underwear in a bunch when the news was released that the Arcade Fire was requesting their concert goers to dress in formal attire or costumes.  And while the Arcade Fire is not punk, the CBC did use their single Reflektor a few weeks ago in their opening montage:

The Old Barn

About a week after the rest of college hockey got underway, the New England Small College Athletic Conference kicked off its 2013-14 season this weekend, and I took in Williams College's home opener against the Mules of Colby College Saturday night, a rematch from last season's NESCAC playoffs.

A Different Look At New Arenas

It's been a sad few years for hockey fans.  Slowly the old barns have been transforming into these monolithic, pristine white multi purpose venues where the hoity toitiest of performers will come and off set the craziest costs.  I don't know about you, but when I think of watching hockey live, my mind wanders to sticky cement floors, cinderblock walls painted brown or maybe tan or pink?  And seats that have clutch marks in their armrests from years of panicked fans.  I'm someone that feels at home in that "lived in" feeling (mind you, I'm talking about "lived in" not "we should go get vaccinated after this" filth).

Them Pucks Are Tricky Little Bastards

Look at that mortification

Because I am a good employee that doesn’t fall asleep at her desk (any more), I miss most west coast games.  Which means I missed the first New York Rangers win of the season and will continue to miss their wins until they come back east.  Unfortunately I miss the truly ridiculous: Patrick Roy’s enthusiasm, Jagr’s return goal, the Teemu based circle jerks, etc.

And I miss Jonathan Quick scoring on himself.
