Chicago fans steal player's helmet and dump beer on him.

1

"During last night’s Blackhawks-Jets game, Winnipeg’s Adam Pardy was check through the glass by Brandon Bollig. Pardy ended up in the front row, on the laps of the Blackhawks’ faithful. That’s when one fan stole his helmet and another dumped beer on him." I've never seen anything like this before.

Tyler Seguin Plays Paintball With Bruins Development Camp Prospects (photo)

Camouflage might seem like a little overkill for Tyler Seguin. However, the 19-year-old rookie sensation did need to settle down and blend in after some over-the-top partying and ditching of the shirt following the Bruins Stanley Cup victory. Seguin joined the Bruins prospects, currently participating in the Boston Bruins development camp, for a round of paintball Friday, according to the Bruins' Twitter feed. Still no word as to whether or not Seguin's counterpart, Brad Marchand, has found his shirt.

Think we could persuade them to make a run of St. Louis Game Time branded lights like this? Powerdecal shines new light on car window stickers Perhaps there's a law of marketing that states, "If you want to add to an existing product's gee-whiz factor, just alter that product so it lights up in the dark." Really, who wouldn't want glowing paper clips, or baby bottles, or ... automotive window decals? That's the theory behind Powerdecal, a device that mounts on the inside of your vehicle's window glass, then displays an illuminated image of your favorite sports team, university, or other group to which you wish to proclaim your unflagging devotion. You might start seeing these on vehicles around town soon. St Louis Blues POWERDECAL POWERDECAL™ is an LED backlit logo for your vehicle window. Device turns on automatically while driving at night via sensor technology; device shuts off after 2 minutes once parked. Easy installation with quality 3M adhesion material, just peel and stick, no tools required. Actual Size: 4" LIGHTED DIAMETER Includes: Batteries & Window Clips (2 sets) Packaging: Quality white box; makes a nice gift.

Tampa Bay Lightning takes break from intense preseason with paintball outing

As an avid fan of paintball for over the past two decades, it's great to see the sport being used by the pros as a tool for building teamwork off the ice. Now if we could only get the St. Louis Blues to play a few games. Perhaps a STL Gametime paintball outing could be planned for the fall? TAMPA — It was easy Thursday to put a smile on the faces of Lightning players: ask about Wednesday's paintball battles.

Tucker Max - The Hockey Story

OK, so this guy is not an actual fan of hockey and apparently lived in a city where no women went to the game, (not that his drunk self stood a chance in hell anyway). Despite his obvious credentials in douchebaggery, this is one of the best hockey stories that I've ever read. Fans here should get more than a few laughs during the read. edit - my employer blocked access to his website, so I had to read that post on my smart phone.

Thursday's Shirt Woot This was made for Preds fans to wear. They even give some props to Nashville and the Predators in the write up. Only $10 each and they aren't sold out yet! DR. SVARZBEIN? IS THIS A JOKE TO YOU? Because the ethics board doesn’t find it funny at all. Look, Dr. Svarzbein, I know you’ve spent a lot of time off campus grounds with your most recent dig, and we’re worried it’s changed your perspective a bit. Well, for instance, we’re worried that you placed the scientific discovery of this skull below the, and I’m quoting here, "hilariously dope gold toof, yo." Do you even have anything to say for yourself? What could possibly have been your logic here? Yes, yes, "it’s awesome." You mentioned that before. But in your quest for "awesome," you’ve defaced and rendered scientifically useless a perfect skeletal specimen of Smilodon fatalis. Not only does this university have a duty to the paleozoological community, we also have a certain reputation to uphold. Attracting mouth-breathing hillbillies and racist stereotypes by doctoring up specimens with gold teeth does not reinforce the image we wish to maintain. Now what do you propose we do to rectify this situation? No, Dr. Svarzbein, I don’t think the Carcharodontosaurus saharicus skeleton needs a pimp cup. Wear this shirt: In Nashville. They go for that sort of thing. Don’t wear this shirt: Past the Lujanian stage of the Pleistocene era. It’s kind of like wearing white after Labor Day. This shirt tells the world: "Why, yes, I can open my jaw 120 degrees. Why does everyone ask me that?"

Keystone Lake Zamboni falls through thin ice A Zamboni took a dip in North America's largest groomed skating pond at Keystone Resort tonight. A driver was grooming the lake at about 6:15 p.m., when the ice cracked and the 7,000-pound machine began to sink at about 6:15 p.m. As a precaution, skaters were cleared from another area of the 5-acre pond, resort spokesman Ryan Whaley said. The driver was not injured. There was no word immediately on how soon the rink might re-open, but staff will examine the ice and remove the Zamboni Wednesday, Whaley said. "They'll take it out and we'll see how it is," Whaley said of the machine and the safety of the ice around the crater. With a lake that large, other areas could reopen immediately, he said. Once it dries out, the machine is likely salvageable, he said. Kenneth Waesche snapped a photo of the sunken ice machine when he stopped by Lakeside Village for a pickup game of hockey. His wife planned to do some skating. Waesche said that the "thin ice" sign in the foreground of the photo was some distance away from where the Zamboni went in. The lake is typically open from Dec. 18 to March. 28 depending on the weather, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. VIDEO Watch video of the Keystone zamboni falling through the ice.

Blues Introduce In-Game Texting Capability

This could come in quite handy for those games were St. Louis Game Time is hosting certain "out of town visiting fans". ;) You don't even have to leave your seat (or your house for that matter). All you need to know is where their seats are. Blues Introduce In-Game Texting Capability Fans will have easy access to Guest Services using their cell phones Wednesday, 11.18.2009 / 3:46 PM / News St. Louis Blues (It's been installed since November of last year?) The St. Louis Blues are pleased to announce a partnership with In Stadium Solutions (ISS) to bring fans an interactive texting system during Blues home games. The system is designed to give fans an additional level of assistance at the games, giving them direct access to assistance from Scottrade Center Guest Services department. Fans should text the word ‘BLUES’ to 69050 and describe their situation, location, question or concern. A representative from Guest Services will arrive to assist fans if necessary. "The primary use for this system is for our guests to identify rowdy or lewd fans," said Jason Duffy, Sr. Director of Guest Services. "Our ultimate goal is to provide an excellent experience here at Scottrade Center. This tool will aid us in achieving that goal." The system is currently also being used by other sports teams, including the St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Cardinals. The text system will be operating at all Blues home games at Scottrade Center this season.

Justice in St. Louis ... St. Louis, MO (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of a St. louis County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the St. Louis Rams, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone....
