NHL Lookalikes: Steve Ott and Steve the Pirate from Dodgeball

By Trapp

Kinda looks like Steve Ott was in Dodgeball doesn’t it? Both named Steve so yea why not?

Ott throughout his NHL career was ‘that guy’ and had some really bad chirps. Heard that teammates described him as the absolute worst when it comes to that. He straight up told Giroux he’d beat him on a draw and then lost it clean.

During the intermission of that game Ott attempted to be a tough guy with Flyers coach Peter Laviolette. Yea Pete wasn’t havin any of that:

Fun fact: Ott was Captain of the Buffalo Sabres at one point lol.

I saw Dodgeball in the theater with my friend Chris..not Doud he sucks.. my other friend Chris. And there were two take aways he had from that movie when we left: fuckin Chuck Norris and cram it in your cram hole. Chris straight up said those two things on repeat for the next couple of months. Alan Tudyk gave a convincing performance as a pirate. Real character actor. He was funny as hell in ‘Knocked Up’ also. But he fuckin nailed it as K-2S0 in Rogue One.

Today We Celebrate Our Independence Day

By Trapp

“We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive.’ Today we celebrate our independence day!”

President Whitmore’s entire speech in ID4 is one of the most important moments in cinematic history, but his closing remarks should’ve put Bill Pullman into Oscar contention.

Let’s all take today to enjoy all we have and appreciate everyone in our lives.

Yak Is Off To The Kay

By Trapp

Really didn’t take long at all to be honest. I fuckin knew this guy was gonna turn out to be another Daigle. I think a lot of us saw this one coming. Another first overall pick for Edmonton, horrible coaching, no development. It was a recipe for disaster.

A stop in St. Louis, and one last shot with Colorado and jus like that the 2012 former first overall draft pick Nail Yakupov has officially signed a two year deal with KHL’s SKA St. Petersburg. Who knows if he decides to sack up and come back when that deal is complete but his time in the NHL is done after six seasons.

“Yea Pavel.. HA yea it’s me. Comin over to the K… I’m 24…Later.”

NHL Lookalikes: Joe Sakic and Harry Connick Jr.

By Trapp

Son of a bitch this ones real close. Their dangling hair is even similar too.

Love Joe Sakic. Hands down the quickest release on a shot I’ve ever seen. Classy guy too. Handed the Cup directly to Ray Bourque who had never won a Cup in the 22 years he was in the NHL. That shit will give you chills.

 

My man Harry Connick Jr. is a jack of all trades. Singer, composer, actor and television host. He’s got three fuckin Grammy Awards, he’s sold millions of albums worldwide. That’s great and all but there’s only one thing that this man has done that I truly care about:

He was Captain Jimmy Wilder in Independence Day.

I saw this movie in theater when I was seven and it’s also the first movie my friend Brian Dolan watched in surround sound. We all know Jimmy’s fate in ID4. And to this day I am still bothered by it.

What the fuck was he thinking banking at that speed? Taking off his mask too?

Torts Is Fired Up And This Is Exactly What We Needed

By Trapp

It’s no secret how John Tortorella feels about the Pittsburgh Penguins. He fuckin hates that organization with a passion. And to add salt to the wound, veteran defenseman Jack Johnson left the Columbus Blue Jackets and signed a deal with the Penguins.

Torts heard about Johnson saying he chose Pittsburgh to “be part of a winning culture.”

Shots fired.

In an interview with The Athletic, Torts took those comments as a slap in the face to Columbus. Torts tried calling Jack up and seeing what’s what and Jack is ghostin John.

“He doesn’t have enough balls to call me back, because I’ve tried to get in touch with him,” Tortorella told The Athletic. “You don’t (expletive) on an organization that’s done nothing but try to help you. We all know Jack has had some problems along the way here. It’s very well-chronicled. All we’ve done is try to (expletive) help him.”

Jack denied his message being a shot at his former team but more so to the fact that Pitt has two cups in the last three seasons.

Oh and Torts also heard about some of the comments that Pittsburgh GM Jim Rutherford made about why Johnson had been scratched in these past playoffs. Torts had an answer for Rutherford. And it was simply:

“Rutherford needs to the shut the fuck up.”

I only became aware of this now and I think I know how I feel about it

By Trapp

So soccer on ice is a thing. Really don’t think I’ve seen this before. It looks like a shit show. Full hockey equipment too… and bowling shoes. It is a remarkably low scoring affair like it’s predecessor: fútbol

I’d really like to crush at least five JT Miller High Life’s and just give this game a whirl. Just once. It probably gets old quick when you’re playing. I think I’m going to stick to talking about making a beer league comeback instead. Speaking of which, my beer league comeback is actually near….stay tuned.

Verdict: soccer on ice is fuckin dumb

NHL Lookalike: Michael Del Zotto and ‘90s heartthrob Andrew Keegan

By Trapp

Resemblance is pretty striking. Both once teen heartthrobs that had a couple good hits and it’s kinda been nothing since.

Zel Dotto, promising rookie for the New York Rangers. Didn’t turn into Brian Leetch and has been bouncing around on 1-2 year deals with teams before the age of 30.

The Keegs, solid appearance on Full House.

Made his rounds through some of TGIF line up: Boy Meets World, Step by Step

Co-started with Heath Ledger in the classic 10 Things I Hate About you. And didn’t really have anything big after that. In 2014 he started a religion called Full Circle and it’s in Venice Beach.

Tight.
