The Onion riffs on hockey

The Onion is a free, satirical newspaper here in some U.S. cities. Every now and then, they riff on hockey in their Sports section. Here’s some of their latest hockey quips.

People Probably Affiliated With Hockey In Some Way Inducted In Hockey Hall Of Fame – unfortunately, it wasn’t a full article, just a photo and caption.

Nation’s Morons March On Washington State – not a hockey article, but the moron on the left is holding a sign that says “Go Red Wings.”

And from last season, here’s a hilarious infographic about Alexander Ovechkin (click on it to read).

Heh, heh…speaks fluent Ovechkin. Happy Friday, everyone.

  1. yes, the Onion has had some great hockey pieces, even if they're almost all based on the same joke about Americans not knowing about hockey (the Hurricanes championship one was hilarious). I'm surprised that Red Wings reference hasn't shown up on any Hawks sites yet…

  2. One day, I will get Brett Heidican to autograph the Onion picture of him lifting a garbage can over his head as the city burns in the background…
