I’ve been making a lot of flow charts lately–you know, little boxes and arrow-type things that illustrate a process. I make such charts to show the page flow of a website…but today, I made one that was a little more interesting.
I am so tired of Daniel Carcillo and his pattented thuggery. I’m all for a good fight in hockey, but Carcillo does not provide good fights. Funny how he went from being my favorite Phoenix Coyotes player to my least favorite NHL player, period. I guess being on a team nicknamed “The Broad Street Bullies” went straight to his head. And we all know that bullies never pick a fair fight.
Thus, I applied a little computer-y flow cart logic to how Carcillo deals with the daunting task of who to fight with when he steps on the ice. Enjoy!

The Onion–a satire newspaper published in the U.S.–is probably the only newspaper I read consistently. Sad but true. And oh so funny. Every now and then they lampoon hockey in their Sports section. Here are some of the more recent riffs–all Red Wings related, given their success:
Also,, there’s a good chance that people who aren’t video game player will get the “Wario Lemieux” reference. Mario Lemieux was nicknamed “Super Mario” in the 1990s after the popular video game character Mario from the Super Mario Bros. games. Wario, with his big nose and twisty mustache, is the evil version of Mario.
For those of you who don’t know, The Onion is the premier weekly satirical newspaper here in the U.S. of A.–sort of like Mad Magazine, but more sophisticated…and yet not pretentious. They poke fun at all things, like politics, current events and sports. Once in a while, they even dis’ on hockey, as evidenced by this photo:
