Last night was yet another awesome hockey game…the Caps are taking the Rangers to game 7 as they won last night 2-1! One of the coolest moments wasn’t even a goal, but how sick is Alex Ovechkin on this play? I wonder how many kids are going to practice doing this during their next skate?

The Career advice website, Daily Muse, just did an article about Office parties. They came up with five situations you want to avoid at an office “get together” so you can come in the next morning feeling refreshed-and not awkward.

1. The Gossiping Gabbys -- It's always a good feeling to be a part of a group, but the last thing you want is to get caught gossiping about someone in the office.

2. One-on-One with the Office Flirt – You don’t want to become the talk of the office.

3. The Therapy Session -- if you're on the receiving end of drama, that person will likely distance themself from you back in the office tomorrow out of utter embarrassment.

4. Cheers (drinks) with the Interns -- This not only applies to interns, but also to any junior staff working under you…Once you put yourself on their level, your authority will be slipping out of your fingers as fast as you downed that glass.

5. College Humor – You’ll resent being known for your great college story rather than your performance. You're better off not going there.

Based on an article about 5 Situations to Avoid at Office Happy Hour…when has an office get together gone wrong? Here are some of the texts we received:

A few years ago I went to a house warming party for my boss's girlfriend and later that night when the party was over we hooked up.

I ended up hooking up with a married woman. I tried not to I told her I don't have any condoms.. She replied my tubes are tied... Um game on.. Oops. Bo from Issaquah

Dont mix vodka and rum in the same bottle. It results in a broken jaw and hand with alot of pissed off coworkers who like u have no idea why you are mad.

Had an office after hours get together at a mini golf and gocart place in boise - my boss got into an arguement with another customer cuz they wouldnt let him play thru - it ended in a fight and my boss going to jail for battery. ;{

Based on this list the top 10 US Cities for cheap people… what makes you, or someone you know a cheapskate? What things to you do to save a buck? Here are the tests we received:

My grandma paid $5500 cash for my rehab treatment, but when she finds a penny on the ground it makes her day, no joke, she gets really excited.

I will buy things that have a money back gurentee use the product then go through the steps to get my money back regardless of my satisfaction Collin

When i go to the movies i take a popcorn bucket out of the trash and use it to get a free refill. U know what im talking about topeeeee

Easiest cheap big mac for 2$. 2 reg cheeseburgers add sauce, lettus, pickels then put them together :)

I fish out used peanut butter jars from Steve's trash. LOTS of good peanut butter left on the sides when he tosses them out. Save at least 5 a week.

My wife washes used sandwich bags so that we can reuse them

I have expensive taste in clothes and food, and I'm able to save money by asking for a comp wherever I go, like getting an extra tie or shirt when I buy suits. -the DV

I dont really consider it being a cheapskate but i always ask about military discounts. the Marines dont pay that well. Tom in Sedro-Woolley

I usually cut my own hair, ride my motorcycle or bicycle everywhere and dollar menus bitches!

I've been told that it's crazy but I think they're nuts! I save packets of ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, red pepper, Parmesan, even soy sauce and sweet and sour from Chinese takeout! It's still good and I have a drawer with a large ziplock tub full of them! Use it all the time!
