Gross Misconduct Hockey Thoughts from a drifter on the hockey landscape

ESPN: Contra Cl-Owned

Being that this is a hockey site, we enjoy bringing up ESPN failures in hockey coverage. ESPN has provided a jackpot of hilarity today.

It started this morning when ESPN insisted that Mike Green and Donald Brashear were being looked at for potential suspensions for their actions in Game 6 against the Rangers.

I’m sorry… Mike Green?! The same Mike Green that isn’t noted for his defensive prowess at all?

Yeah.

Turns out that was all part of a joke played on ESPN. ESPN retracted their story after a half hour.

The jokes haven’t ended there today for the World Wide Leader.

If I might get my “Jump To Conclusions” mat out, it looks like ESPN has upset the space-time continuum courtesy of old-school 80s video gamers.


Code Of Honor: Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start

This afternoon, word started circulating around Internet forums that if you visited ESPN’s website and entered in the Contra Code you would find an amusing result.

Obviously I’m an easy sheep to snare but this was worth it to give it a look-see. Click to enlarge it, of course:


It’s like Napoleon Dynamite’s Trapper Keeper crapped on ESPN’s homepage.

I don’t know what’s funnier about this, NASCAR being front page material or the unicorns or the horse from 80s kids show Rainbow Brite being prominently involved.

Whoever the mad geniuses behind these presumably unrelated pranks are are hilarious and deserve a pat on the back.

That is unless they’ve hacked everyone’s computer – which in that case I’d like them to be burned at the stake while tarred and feathered.

Like I said, this is loosely related to hockey but too hilarious to NOT share. I’ll call this karmic retribution for being wholly ignorant of the NHL.

  11. Both require the ability to:* Make keen observations and astute assessments of SYMPTOMS.
    In fact, there are many, many parallels between the human body (indeed, the body of any animal) and a vehicle with an
    internal-combustion engine and, so, it seems a logical conclusion (to my mind, at least) that the set of skills necessary to understand how to repair one
    could well be the same skills as those needed to understand
    how to repair the other. You may get them
    cheaper this way, but you really need to make sure they will
    work for your machine.

  22. If there aren’t any holes, start with a layer of pebbles before adding the
    dirt. It is always a good idea to have containers which collect rainwater throughout the rainy season. Gardening on a
    regular basis is a highly-physical activity that is believed to tone your muscles, help
    you lose weight and also reduce your risk for certain health problems
    including heart disease and obesity.
