Friday Fun: Stickhandling and Twitter rants

10/4/2013

For all of you fantasy owners who started Pekka Rinne last night (three goals in the first 9:45. Ouch!), here is a little something to brighten your day. This is what made us laugh this week:

Bollig's stickhandling

You don't have to be a hockey fan to be impressed by Patrick Kane's ridiculous stickhandling in this video. The only time I come close to showing that much hand-eye coordination is when I'm fast forwarding my DVR. This first clip alone is worth watching.

But that isn't why we are here. We are here because of Brandon Bollig. His spoof of Kane is hilarious. Yes, the video was posted earlier than this week, but it is too good to not share.

Twitter Rant

Hockey players are just like you and I. They put their pants on one leg at a time, and they get angry when their Internet stops working and unplugging the router for 30 seconds doesn't fix the problem.

Erik Karlsson had issues with his Internet service and went to the Twitters to vent his frustration.

"I hate BELL! Paying way to much for way to little. I thought it was 2013 not 1999. Omg figure something out please."

"Perfect!!! sat on the phone for 2 hours trying to figure out why my internet is not working and the supervisor hangs up the phone. Classy."

"I'm happy to pay for whatever as long as it's working. But why pay when things never work, as I said it's 2013. Figure it out!"

Insert problem: Bell owns the naming rights to the Bell Sensplex and the HD screen at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Yeah, those tweets were deleted by the next day. So, many thanks to the Ottawa Citizen and the Ottawa Sun for copying them before they were deleted. I'm sure Mr. Karlsson is also very appreciative.

What mad you laugh this week? Send them to me @sarahgold8.
