Jacques Plante Classic Red Jersey Hockey Figure – Montreal Canadiens

September 23, 2011

My all time favorite NHL goalie is not Patrick Roy….it is the one and only….Jacques Plante.

Did you KNOW:  Plante was one of the first goaltenders to skate behind the net to stop the puck. He also was one of the first to raise his arm on an icing call to let his defencemen know what was happening. He perfected a stand-up, positional style, cutting down the angles; he became one of the first goaltenders to write a how-to book about the position. He was a pioneer of stickhandling the puck; before that time, goaltenders passively stood in the net and simply deflected pucks to defencemen or backchecking forwards.

Plante was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1978. His jersey, #1, was retired in 1995 by the Montreal Canadiens.  Finally McFarlane Toys has released Plante’s classic red, white and blue jersey in Series 28.   Just click the image below to buy it online.

Fan throws banana peel at black NHL player

September 23, 2011

A fan threw a banana peel at black NHL hockey player Wayne Simmonds during a Philadelphia Flyers-Detroit Red Wings exhibition game in London, Ontario Thursday night, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman condemned the “obviously stupid and ignorant action” on Friday.

Simmonds, a right winger, was moving in on Red Wings goalie Jordan Pearce during a shootout when a fan in the upper deck threw a banana peel on the ice as an apparent racial taunt. Simmonds scored anyway but the Flyers lost 4-3.

Biggest Star Wars Fan Ever

I buy everything Star Wars….and this is a MUST-HAVE for any SW fanatic (check out the above pic of me after I got my Blu-Ray in the mail!)

This is the most complete and comprehensive Star Wars package ever. For you die-hard Star Wars Fans this contains so much more than the movies. The “Lost Anchorhead Footage” and many other never before seen clips are there too. It will take a long time to go through everything here but I just received my package and tore it open to see if it had the extra bonus material and couldn’t get enough of it. Can’t wait to watch the movies (for the hundredth time) but want to go though and see these extra scenes first.  I was going to pick it up from Amazon but decided on buying it from Walmart.com ’cause it was slightly cheaper.
