The More Things Change

…the more they stay the same.  Actually, a few people were surprised about Joe Thornton’s impression of Greg Luganis (honestly…not trying to go the homophobe route…but I don’t know any other Olympic Divers…sorry, USA).  But the fact is – we had a problem with the Sharks taking dives last year.  So much in fact, that I was inspired to make this movie poster:

Of course, Evgeni Nabokov is long gone.  Hell, we even tried to sign him this season.  But Jumbo Joe takes his spot on this poster (notice the detail I went into on those smaller pics).

Speaking of predictable scapegoats…everyone has probably heard of Jeremy Roenick’s calling out of Patrick Marleau…calling him gutless or referencing his heart.  So I decided to play a little game on the Twitter to see where everyone thought that Patrick Marleau’s guts had gone.

The hashtag was #wheresmarleausguts and here are some of my favorite responses:

said: Datsyuk stole those too

said: In the same place as Roenick’s cup rings.

said: I think Joe Thornton dove onto them and squished them.

said: Hanging out with Thornton’s spine and Setoguchi’s balance.

said: Inside Kyle Wellwood’s stomach.

said: With Sharks fans general hockey knowledge.

said: On a beach with with @ sportsmenship and @ class.

…to which Ryan Lambert replied:

and your spelling apparently. “sportsmenship” RT @

Awesome stuff.  And don’t worry if you don’t follow the whole Twitterspeak and hashtag talk…it’s a Jersey thing.
