This morning we talked about how there is scientific reasons why people share cute pictures of cats all the time. A new study out of Yale found that when we see something cute, our bodies are wired to pretty much lose control and you are filled with a “biological urge” to share the cuteness . . . and that urge is so strong it overrides your usual inhibitions. Hell, I am guilty of that. Just this past weekend I had 2 instances of wanting to share cute pictures of our dog Lulu:

Over the weekend I went to a Roller Derby match in Tumwater for the first time in my life. We went to support the MIA Derby Girls...get more info on them on their Facebook page: .  I still have no idea what happened in the game and how they score, but there were girls skating around in circles knocking each other down…it was AWESOME! Honestly -- it was a great time, and those ladies kick ass out there, non-stop action.

Plus our friend Drunk Spice from the MIA Derby Girls team showed some love for my beer league hockey team, the Tacoma Donkeys (follow us on Twitter @TacomaDonkeys or ).

Speaking of my team…we just got the sample of our upcoming new jersey’s…looking pretty sweet if you ask me!

Donkeys had a big win over the long weekend…what better way to celebrate than to drink some “Donkey Juice.”

I spent most of the weekend watching the NHL…as the NHL is back finally…huge props to the Dallas Stars for having fun at the expense of the Manti te’o craziness:

Speaking of beer league hockey…I have to share this video with you as it is the funniest thing I have seen on You Tube in a while…I know all my fellow beer league hockey friends will love this, and if you have ever played some sort of a adult rec sport (Softball, Flag Football, hell Kickball etc) you will dig it as well. This definitely hits home for me, as I can relate to a lot of the absurdity in this video. It’s 15 minutes long, but worth it…and it’s a parody of the NHL 36 series (where video crews follow a NHL player for 36 hours on and off the ice):

To come full circle, after all this talk about hockey…my favorite team, the New Jersey Devils have their home opener tonight…Go Devils!
