Your Best Efforts Aren't Worth a Damn

This looks like a nice spot to mail it in from. Why didn't I think of this sooner?

Let's face it. It's a Saturday in the middle of July, and nothing is going on. Most of the big free agents have been signed already, and arbitration hearings don't start for a few weeks. Right now, the hockey world is a deep, dark abyss, and we haven't fallen far enough yet to see the light on the other side.

To pass the time, let's take a look at the people who, much like myself, mailed it in this week.

Me - I'll start with the obvious. This is the fifth post of the week, and that just ain't cuttin it.

The Carolina Hurricanes - Their biggest addition so far this off-season? Michael Leighton. Thanks for the effort, team.

SI Fan Nation - Next time, make sure the "news" you're posting isn't, you know, five weeks old.

Bambi - As the good folks at Kissing Suzy Kolber show us, this deer mailed it in when it came to the game of life. I think the eagle even power bombed the deer! SWEET!

NASA - Two words; spell check.

Paratroopers - Next time, don't land in the prison. I hear some of the guys in D block have a think for army boys.

Australia - How do you stop a tank rampage? Is it even possible? Next time, lock up your tank.


  1. I wonder what the over/under is on the number of teams Leighton plays for this year....

  2. Actually I guess I should clarify and say "gets sent to" since he didn't actually get to play for many this year...

  3. hmmm good point... I didn't realize, but he played in four different unis last year. I'll start the bidding at 5!
