Rough game for the Donkey’s last night…my beer league hockey team lost our first game of the season but win or loose we always booze…so the loss stopped stinging after the first beer. We almost didn’t have a game, as the Zamboni died on the ice as it was only a few feet from getting off the ice. You don’t get to see stuff like this in the NHL, but then again with a lock-out you don’t see anything in the NHL:
Yes, that is our team trying to push a 4000 pound “vehicle” off the ice…as our mascot looked on! After several attempts, we were able to get it off the ice…and lost the game. During the game one of the guys got hit in the eye with a puck…which led to him adding some more “color” to our jersey:

The Detroit Tigers are in the World Series against the San Francisco Giants, and they are down 2-0 in the series. On Tuesday, one Tigers fan put an ad on Craigslist offering to TRADE HIS HOUSE for tickets to a World Series game. That’s crazy, but here is the crazy part…the house is barely worth more! The guy lives in a neighborhood of Detroit, where houses are going for as little as $1,300. On Stubhub.com, two standing room only tickets to Detroit's first World Series game at home on Saturday night are $718. Two tickets to sit in some of the worst seats in the stadium are $810.
This got us thinking…there are certain events (whether it be sporting or not) that we would trade anything for…so, finish this sentence… “I would be willing to trade _____ in order to see my favorite team play in a championship game (or any other event if it’s not sporting).” Here are the texts we got:
I would sell my 2006 Audi to see the Seattle Sonics return and beat the damn Oklahoma City Thunder back in the Key Arena!!
I would definitely trade my wife to watch the Seahawks play in a championship game
My girlfriend, to see the Seahawks at the super Bowl
I would be willing to trade my wife, to see the Steelers win the Super Bowl or the Braves to win the World Series. Even if they lose, I still come out ahead!
I would give my wife up to see the Pats in the Super Bowl
I would trade everything I own to just see the Canucks play this season
I would trade my car, my movie collection, and three of my guitars to see the Mariners in the World Series. –Bjorn
I would trade my tempurpedic mattress for tickets to the Super Bowl to watch the hawks.
Bj- I just might trade a testicle to see Led Zeppelin live, though I understand their reasoning to stay retired.
I'd give up $10 and a 6pack of Coors original to see the Tacoma Donkey play in the beer leauge championship RED
I'll loan my wife to Hulk Hogan to see the raiders Win the Super Bowl .
