How Old is Too Old to Gesture 'Suck It'

Terry Murray amazes me because his facial expression never changes.  Down 5 goals, up 5 goals, horrible mistakes, awesome plays....doesn't matter because Murray looks like this:

I suppose it's better to have a calm coach and not someone who throws a stick at a ref....

On the opposite spectrum is Greg Williams, the defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.  A couple weeks ago the Saints played the Cincinnati Bengals and were defending a 4th and inches play just outside their end zone.  It looked like the Bengals were going to score a touchdown, but the Saints stopped them and Greg Williams celebrated the stop in style:

I don't think I've seen anyone do that since high school. This past week when the Saints played the St. Louis Rams, we joked about whether Williams would do it again and to our delight he did and this time Malcolm Jenkins joined him:

Fight Night at the Joe Q&A

Andy of the Detroit Red Wings blog, Fight Night at the Joe, asked me a couple quick questions about the Kings.

Head on over to the Q&A to find out what I fear most about Detroit (*not Osgood*), which Kings rookie is my fav, and why I think the Kings have been so freakin' streaky this season.

Thanks, Andy for including me.  Should be a good match tonight.
