Crazy weekend and we shall waste no time with pleasantries this AM. We’re in the middle of the Cold War again, so quit Stalin and get under your desks, children!
Let’s hit it!
But first, a word from our sponsors:
Oshie 2014. Going gangbusters. Get one. So many sales coming in from Minnesota, looking at the order report I feel like I’m reading the script from D2‘s locker room speech:
[We’ve updated the shirt ever so slightly to correct some spacing issues in the original design. This is the version that will ship.]
Another. Don’t like ours or just want to double your pleasure? Grab Philly Phaithful’s TJ Sochi t-shirt.
Flyers. Meet Wayne Simmonds, Steve Mason, Brayden Schenn and Andrej Meszaros, all at Sports Vault. Details and tickets here.
Tickets. We have concert tickets at Crossing Broad Tickets, too. Great deals. See for yourself.
Our T.J. Oshie-related coverage from Saturday:
The Herb Brooks Miracle joint has amassed over 255k views in under two days. We got a Tweet from Kenny Albert LIVE FROM SOCHI. KENNY ALBERT!
Excited Putin before it all came crashing down. WHY DID THE COMMUNISTS AT NBC NOT SHOW PUTIN REACTIONS AFTER USA GOALS? Biggest travesty of the Olympics right there.
Not enough balls to show Putin’s reaction… but enough balls to open a secret Starbucks in their Sochi media center.
Jeff Carter’s girlfriend is over in Sochi and I’m sorry, where were we?
Sponsors are tweeting for athletes in Sochi. I don’t have a problem with this sort of thing, but there should be a disclosure in the Tweet. I always try to include “sponsored” or “SP” when I have a sponsored Tweet… which by the way are available for you business owners out there! Call me. Thanks.
Roy Halladay wants to sell his house to A.J. Burnett and that makes me sad.
Steve Yzerman is so fucking tightly wound for these Olympics. Too much pressure. He buckled, overthought picking the team. Canada isn’t getting to the Gold Medal Game. USA! USA!
The psychology behind being a troll. Take note, commenters who can’t understand why someone might want to make money selling things to people.
PHANTOMS BRAWL! FRANK THE ANIMAL BIALOWAS. BULLIES. CULTURE. [No but really this is awesome.]
Bob Costas returns tonight, thankfully. Watching the Olympics with Meredith Vieira was, quite frankly, horrible.
