Best of the Search Terms, Volume 1

I’ve gotten so many strange search terms to find this blog that I felt the time is right to compile them all into a post.  I call it “Volume 1” because I’m sure there will be more wacky and strange search terms in the future.

So, here, we, go:

Alex Ovechkin Personal Life

Doesn’t the picture say it all?

Sasha’s his BFF, of course!  Why, what were you thinking? 😉

Dallas Stars Fashion

You want Stars fashion? Buy the calendar.

Sean Avery in a Suit & Sean Avery Smirk

I can’t help you with the suit, but is this the smirk you’re looking for?

Disgusting.

Victor Hedman Christmas

Merry Christmas, ladies. 🙂

Why Ducks Hate Marty Turco

Because he’s known to be a Duck-killer at times. 

Cory Schneider 09-10 Canucks

I think it’s because I called him a creepy ginger kid.

Marty Turco Personal Life

You won’t ever hear me talk about a player’s personal life, except for marriages and babies.  Honestly, I am a puck bunny.  But I’m not going to act like it.

Pavel Datsyuk Wife and Kids

Ditto above.  Plus, I wouldn’t even know that.

Brad Richards Girlfriend

This is the number-one search term for my blog, and it scares me.  There’s this site dedicated to the subject.   Poor B-Rad is being stalked.  Creepy.

Evgeni Malkin Winking

Why would someone even google this?

Hatcher’s Four Categories

Uhm, what?  If someone can explain this, please feel free to do it.

That’s all for now.  But I’m sure that there will be more creep-tastic search terms.  The world is full of stalker-creeps.

“No Goal” Will Never Go Away

When I wandered around The Hockey News, I found an article by Jason Kay, where he recounted the top 20 events that had happened since he’d been working at THN.  I thought it’d be one of those nice little reminiscent pieces where he recounted his favorite moments.

To be honest, I didn’t expect “No Goal” to be on there.  I mean, it’s a goal that’s looked back on in shame for a lot of people.  And, it came from the Dallas Stars, who they don’t really say much about up in Canada.

I smiled at times while reading the list (mainly, “The Goal” by Alex Ovechkin, which never ceases to amze me; it was ranked at #14), then there were times when I just wanted to cry for being forced to remember something I didn’t want to remember (pretty much only the Dany Heatley/Dan Snyder crash at #6).

So, you can imagine my surprise when I saw “No Goal” at number two, only behind Mario Lemiex’s return after cancer treatment.  I guess that prt of me expected it to be on the list, just way down low on it.  But, no.  It’s number 2.

Here’s what Jason Kay had to say about “No Goal”:

2. No goal, June 19, 1999. High drama. High controversy. High embarrassment. On the bright side, Brett Hull’s triple overtime Stanley Cup-winner over Buffalo helped drive a dagger through the heart of an ill-conceived rule.

It’s amazing how it will never, ever go away isn’t it?

The rest of the list is here.

Games to Watch in 09-10

I’ve been a bit off the radar lately, but that’s only because I was on vacation in Arizona in, like, the middle of nowhere.  Anyway, here are the games I’ll be watching for sure next year:

Oct. 3 vs. Nashville- I very interested to see the “new” Dallas Stars under Marc Crawford.  Plus, I’m pining for the Stars and this is the first time I’ll see them this season.

 Oct. 28 vs. Toronto- We’d better win this game.  I want another 8-2 smashing over the Leafs, and more importantly, Jonas Gustavsson.

Nov. 7 @ Minnesota- Good things happen on November 7 to the Stars.  Modano scored his record-breaking goal two years ago, and one year ago, Mark Parrish scored a hat trick in his debut.  So what will we get this year?

Nov. 18 @ Detroit- Marty Turco may finally have battled his Detroit demons, so this one is a must-watch.  Playing Detroit is either an intense, yet entertaining match, or a drubbing on our part.  However, there is no feeling quite like the one you get when you beat Detroit.

Nov. 28 vs. Tampa Bay- It’s always interesting to see Brad Richards play against his BFF, Vinny Lecavalier.

Dec. 31 vs. Anaheim- So our New Year’s Eve game is against the Sucks?  I like it. 🙂

Jan 6. @ NY Rangers- Duh.

Jan. 8 vs. NY Islanders- Stars fans will get to see John Tavares for themselves.  Need I say anymore?

Mar. 8 @ Washington- My two favorite teams go head-to-head, but hopefully the Stars come out on top. 🙂

That happy feeling one gets when beating the Red Wings :D
