Math Class With Dr. Kronwall

In honor of Niklas Kronwall's 30th birthday, I'm posting this comic I drew about Kronwall. I drew it in response to meeting him in person while he was wearing his glasses and how they made him look like a math teacher.

Without further ado, here is "Math Class With Dr. Kronwall."

Larry Murphy At Home

You may have missed me posting this during the Winter Classic on Twitpic, so I can post it again.

On Saturday night during the Winter Classic, the NBC commentators made some remark about hot dogs, and I tweeted something about why they didn't ask Larry Murphy for his opinion (because we all know how much he loves $1 hot dog night at The Joe). Someone replied to my tweet and said he was probably at home eating hot dogs.

And this was the mental image that was produced from that comment.

I still don't think there are enough hot dogs.

Sportscenter Commercial

If you haven't seen the latest Sportscenter commercial featuring Ovechkin and Varlomov as Russian spies, please do so right now.

Now then, @jediemma told me her life would be complete if there was a part two to this commercial. What she wanted is exactly what is in this latest comic...

Helm's Nicknames

If you guys will recall the Festivus article written on the Red Wings' Airing of Grievances, Darren Helm made it known that he dislikes Ozzie for always having a different nickname for him every day.

Well, it was excruciatingly slow at work this morning, so I grabbed some paper from the back and went to work at a comic, both to be productive and to keep myself awake. So there's no color to this, save for the highlighters I could scour in the back office.

I was having fun thinking of names this to @JennHo for the "Fluffy" nickname.

Pond Hockey

The Winter Classic is here! Well, it's been delayed by seven hours, but that's what rain will do.

And to get you in the mood for televised pond hockey, I can link you guys to an article I wrote!

You see, my neighbors set up an ice rink every single winter for as long as I can remember/as long as they've lived next door [maybe minus that first winter or two since their kids were tiny]. And since I now have a sort of legit writing job as a Red Wings article writer/blogger/whatever you'd like to call it, I have set my heart on writing an article about the ice rink.

I love the ice rink. So much. It's a way to bond with family and friends and neighbors, and that's not even going into the whole better-appreciation-for-the-sport-and-its-players.

So since the Winter Classic is delayed, I thought I would give you guys some pond hockey coverage to tide you over until the Capitals slaughter the Pens [hey, here's hoping]. And yes, there are pictures and there's even a video with a full-out hockey brawl.

If you like it, I suggest that you RT it or link others to it or something. I want to spread the love of the sport/recreational activity, and let people who have never played pond hockey see just how amazing it is.
