Murphy's job was as a color commentator and analyst. At least, on paper. But I think we all know his REAL "job" was to get fans excited about $1 hot dog night. And no one could do that better than good ole' Murph.
Best of luck to Ozzie in his new venture. I think he'll be great at this, though perhaps not as entertainingly as Murph...
Journey, far and away is my favorite indie game. Everything about it is fantastic, the art direction, the soundtrack, the emotion. For a game with no spoken words, you find yourself caring an awful lot about the fate of your character.
Just started up a Mass Effect Trilogy run. Starting from scratch with a brand new character, complete with a face code I found online (backwards-converted to ME1 using a converter I also found online).
I feel like there is this evil force in the world that is trying to destroy humanity by creating terrible pro hockey jerseys but they don't know what they're doing, big picture-wise. Sort of like the underpants gnomes.
The San Jose Sharks unveiled their new home and away uniforms today. And if you ask me, they look like cheap practice jerseys. Gone are the shoulder caps, and the stripes around the waist.
According to their website...
The Next Wave jerseys were designed for optimal performance on the ice. The jerseys use the Reebok Play-Dry Stretch Fabric for comfort and for temperature control. To decrease the weight of the jersey, the black/teal shoulder cap was removed. The popular jumping Shark patch will remain on the shoulder. Even more weight was cut out by removing the stripes on the body of the jersey.
The home jersey look is clean, focusing on the Sharks primary color, Pacific Teal. Orange accents were removed from the lettering and numbering as well as the arm stripes. The classic crest logo will still be the centerpiece of the jersey.
To complete a classic look, neckline lacing was added and neckline striping was removed.
Clean, classic, bold and designed for performance, the Next Wave jerseys will help take the Sharks to the next level this season and many to come.
That's right, folks. The Sharks have been classic under-performers because those jerseys just weighed too darn much. So they're using practice jerseys from here on out because that will take them to the next level...
I can't believe that cap hit. I think he made more last year?
Well, yes and no. His last contract was a 3 year ELC, with a NHL-pay cap hit of $875k, after performance & signing bonuses. It was a 2 way deal, though, so his salary was considerably lower while playing in the AHL. And his NHL base salary was $637,500 last year.
This deal, however, is a one way contract, with no performance or signing bonuses. So while his cap hit is lower, his actual "take home" salary will be higher.
Shanny is the perfect example of why the Wings need a "Ring of Honor" in the new arena. Gives the Wings a way to honor guys like Shanny, Homer, etc, who certainly deserve great recognition, but don't quite meet the standard set by Stevie and Nick.
