Dear Matt Cooke PR Team,

Glad to see you've decided to use this lockout as a PR spin for your client Matt Cooke.  Really great to see him coaching his kid's soccer team and spending time with his family.  That's nice.  Really thumbs up.

#StayNegi: In The Defense of The Vancouver Canucks

Picture this: It’s your birthday.  There’s a big tasty double fudge cake with big scroll like letters sitting on the counter.  Across it says “Happy Birthday!”.  Safe to assume that cake is yours, right?  Wrong.  It’s not yours, not to mention, you’re not allowed to touch it, sample it, or lick the frosting.  You have to sit there and watch everyone else have a piece or in some cases 4.

Making Relationships Work With NHL Fans

How the LA Kings express love
It’s that time of the year, the halfway point of the summer, the part where you start to get antsy and wonder when that summer romance is going to start up.  With hockey being such a niche sport, there isn’t much of a dating pool and it could mean you need to search outside your comfort zone, find a non hockey fan.  Craziness!  I know.  But what’s even more crazy, is the shit your non hockey fan date has to deal with.  What am I talking about?  Well each fanbase has its own quirks, their own expectations of how things should go.  Last summer theactivestick but together a list about dating hockey fans, but she only got around to six, and, well, I’m more likely to end up on a date with a Devils fan than a Canucks fan just because of proximity.  So before you go out with your unsuspecting date, print out this guide and highlight your favorite teams so your date knows what they are getting into.
