Huge Huge Huge thanks to all of the Rock-A-Holics that came out in support of the Ronald McDonald for the T-Birds Hockey Challenge. I got to play in the game again, and once again it was the time of my life. Thanks to BJ, Toppy, Mono-Nick, and Ryan Castle for being there to support me…extra huge thanks to Toppy…Topshelf winds up getting a large group of people to come every year…he brings the party, and makes the game a lot of fun not only for me, but as my coach Ian Furness from KJR said on the mic during the intro’s…they are the loudest group in the stands. Plus Toppy was rocking this sign:
Before the T-Birds/Tips game, I had the honor to go out with former NHL’er Jamie Huscroft and actor Cameron Bancroft for the ceremonial puck drop. Dropping the puck was a kid and his family that are staying at the Ronald McDonald House…it was awesome meeting him and his family.
As for our game…was I nervous? Extremely…I was so nervous that I almost forgot to eat a soft pretzel before the game. For those that know my pretzel obsession, that means I was really nervous. I wound up playing the first and third periods of the game, and I am proud to say I only gave up 2 goals on a bunch of shots (former T-Bird Blake Knox scored on me, as well as Cameron Bancroft)! We wound up losing 8-6, but the score really doesn’t matter…the fact that we were able to raise money for an awesome cause was all that mattered!
One of the highlights was getting to play with for NY Islander, Seattle T-Bird, and Tacoma Sabrecat – Danny Lorenz. Danny is an awesome goalie, and he didn’t play goalie for this…he skated as a forward (and scored a penalty shot goal). Before the game we were talking about goaltending, and he asked me what I thought I needed most work on…I thought long and hard, and my answer was: “Everything”. The fact that after the game Danny complimented me on my play totally made my night!
The other highlight…Cool Bird came into our locker room before the game…I’d say to give us a pre-game speech…but he’s a mascot, and mascots don’t talk!
History was made Saturday at UFC 157 as Ronda Rousey won the first women’s UFC match, defeating Liz Carmouche. Rhonda has become the talk of the UFC world, and her fight not only got people talking because of her performance…but also because there was a near wardrobe malfunction. Check this video out…at about 1:10 in. Plus after she nearly lost her top…Liz then kicked her in the boob…classic!

There's a video spreading virally of a young girl that shows women how to use a curling iron. And on the first curl . . . she burns off a big chunk of hair. Then the next 30 seconds is her sitting there looking horrified. Here's a clip from the video.
Based on the video of a girl burning off a chunk of her hair while doing a video tutorial on hair curling…what was your “I’m a dummy” moment? Here are the texts we got:
