Scott skates! Sleek makes a cartoon!

Unfortunately, you're going to have to go over to the Fanhouse to see it. I would have put it here, but I think your mouse-clicking finger is looking a little out-of-shape. Time to give it a good ol' one-click workout.

Just so this isn't just a useless "look at that!" post, though, I will point out that I will be in Row B attendance for tomorrow's BoC battle--Sharks at Ducks. I plan on being very boozed up so that I can properly remind a certain Shark player of his very nice near-accomplishment:


It should be a lot of fun, whether or not history gets made. Let's hope that I don't get Robitailled.

[AFTERNOON EDIT: Below is a cartoon that will not be making its way to the Fanhouse. It's not that it's not allowed, but really, there's no good story to write alongside it. Besides, the cartoon requires two things: (a) a fairly strong understanding of NHL goaltending styles, and (b) a fairly strong tolerance for puns. It's designed for a narrow audience--cool yet corny. Enjoy!]

That cartoon is great, Earl. Love it.

Love it! LOVE IT! Fan House has no idea what they're missing! This is so totally what they need! As Pengsirl pointed out on IPB, it is tres New Yorker. Having cartoons in the New Yorker doesn't diminish the quality of the writing or it's importance as a magazine!

Like the one with the pig at the complaint department.

Well, good thing he has a helmet on because he would have been at the receiving end of a beer bottle. Not in a good way, either.

My sources tell me that skating for physical fitness is always a good thing and that as a person ages, being physically fit can only help, not hurt.

Earl, this hybrid goalie cartoon is brilliant on so many levels. You, sir, are a genius. (Seriously, was it too subtle for FanHouse?)

Usually when people say "receiving end of a beer bottle" it's assumed that it's the bad way, but give the guy a break! He's sweating up there!

I will need to confirm those sources through AOL's rigorous screening process before I can start making wild assumptions like this.

Oh, I don't know. I'm fine with this outlet anyway--save the good stuff for BoC.

If I drink enough, I'll be seeing two of you!
