Strange, I'm Still Here
  posted by Ren, 5/24/2011
Unless you've been disconnected from the TV and the internet for the past couple weeks, I'm sure you've heard about the end of the world. You know, the one that was supposed to happen May 21st. Some kooky old man out in California has been declaring it for awhile now and he happens to be a very big person at some radio station.

Hurt by Pride, A Hockey Tale
  posted by Ren, 5/23/2010
Above all else, hockey players have a reputation for one thing: toughness. This reputation for toughness is something that hockey players take pride in. They have to. A hockey player can skate over 20mph and run head first into an opponent skating over 20mph with just a small amount of plastic and padding in between them. However, sometimes pride can get in the way. And in hockey, there's a really big place where players could help their teams and themselves if they would swallow a little pride.
