Modano, Robitaille, and....Crocs???

So I went over to the Toyota Sports Center on my lunch break again and, lo and behold, the Dallas Stars were practicing. But, right when I sat down, I realized that their practice jerseys don't have number/names on them (obviously), and I wasn't going to know who was who. *Sigh* No matter, I was still able to pick out Modano and Mattias easily. As for Turco? Full face masks not only protect the grill, they also hide identities. Oh yeah, I fished out Sergei Zubov from the melee too. Thoughts on their practice? They looked fast. Their drills were clean and everyone was moving quickly and with purpose. Shit. I just hope the Kings don't get killed like the last time the Stars rolled thru So Cal. Yeah....

So this Modano kid. I caught him in the cutest act I think I've witnessed in the past...well, I don't know how long. It was more of a physical motion to another player. If you catch me around, ask and I'll personally do an instant replay for you.

Robitaille. Definitely saw him walking around looking all business-like. Awww, can't wait to finally meet him in person on Saturday!!

Crocs. This may seem out of left field. And it sort of is. I mean, I'm talking about hockey this and hockey that, and then Crocs? Yes sir, and I will say this: I don't know what I hate more, the Sharks or Crocs. Anyway, it has been brought to my attention that Peter Forsberg's company is the importer of Crocs to North America.

According to the Swedish newspaper Allehanda, Forsberg’s new airline is called Hoga Kusten. Translated, that’s “high coast” in Swedish. The airline will be operated by Forspro, a holding company that is co-owned by Forsberg. Forspro also owns the overseas distribution rights to Crocs footwear.

Holy hell. So it's Forsberg's ass that I have to kick! He's the reason those Crocs exist in this country! Ack! Peter, if you're out there and listening, please keep those ugly pieces of shit over in Europe. Please, I beg you.

oh my god, I thought I was the only person who hated crocs. now that I know Forsberg is involved, I am really mad. And I think you probably still hate the Sharks more. But it's close....

ckim and kristin, I HATE them, too! They're so ugly! Although, I hate Uggs more than crocs. The Forsberg/crocs connection is odd...I bet he's "connected" with the Swedish mob...he is Swedish, right?

What act of cuteness did Modano commit! I must know!

CKim said...

Uggs! Uggs and skirts! Shoot me in the face! Actually, I can tolerate Uggs, but NOT crocs. NEVER.

Yes, Forsberg is Swedish. Does anyone else think that he looks like a serial killer in his pictures? What about the NHL commercial last year (or was it two years ago) when he's in bed with the wife and the husband is like what the fuck. Dude, he looks fucking scary there.

Kate - I can't describe it with my keyboard, it just wouldn't do it justice. But I definitely had the biggest smile on my face...that is, until I read about Forsberg......

ckim, can you give me a hint? I've seen the Stars practice a few times... maybe I've seen it.

Is it endearing?

CKim said...

haha, you girls crack me up! He kind of moved a puck over to the goalie and made this motion to get the goalie to get the puck back to him. I can't describe it! haha

But, I did see this puck that the coaches were using at the beginning of the practice just passing back and forth while skating around the rink. It was like...five times the size of a bagel. It was a MONSTER puck...and I wanted it.
