how is it possible that i never knew about this ?

it seems that last april, a bunch of the baby flames (aka abbostford HEAT) shaved their heads to raise money for cancer research. no real point other than there are some kickass photos here that demonstrate why john armstrong (pictured) is still an asset to the team (or at least to the girls who like the team), why chris breen should never sport a chelsea cut, and jimmy canaryshirt should never smile.

i actually attended a session at prospect camp before shipping out to the middle of nowhere for the better part of three weeks, and one of these days i'll post my (limited) thoughts on the day. it includes a trip to alberta king of subs, finding feaster miles away from the ice (in the snackbar, no less), and my thoughts on breen in an on-and-off ice capacity.

Canucks Ego Alert

I know I've been absent around these parts, but now that we're into the offseason, there isn't really much to talk about.  Sales of bottled Luongo Tears are not nearly where I expected them to be.  I suspect Bobby Lu has granted someone else access to the formula for sodium chokeride.

As it is, I have something to share today.  My ex-brother (I say "ex" due to the Canucks ball cap in the pic below) was down in Vegas for the NHL awards.  Good times were had, including partying with Roenick, meeting Danielle Sedin, playing slots with Dale Hunter, and hanging at the club with Corey Perry.  Plus, this little bit of gold from the pool at the Palms.  (I blank out his face mostly to save you from his ugly mug, but also because his kids might have to live with this shame some day.  And I really love the nephews.)

Note the highlighted area on Kesler's perfectly sculpted shoulder (What can I say? The guy is effin' ripped).  Here's the zoom:

Really Ryan?  A Superman shield with a "K"?  I was so surprised that I assumed this was some sort of temporary douchebaggery, so I looked it up.  Verification here and here (and if anyone ever repeats that I punched "Ryan Kesler naked" into Google image search, I'll rip out their throat).  I know that the innertubes are a big place and I am not the first to notice this, but I think it deserves to be shown again.  What an amazing display of egotism.  I fully expect him to get "Ryan Kesler is AWESOME!" tattooed across his back.  Fuck me.

Go Flames!!!
