WCH Weekend Preview

Thursday Night Pre-Game Movie: Demolition Man. Everything about this movie is a terrible idea(other than letting Denis Leary say whatever he wants), and yet it's utterly enjoyable to watch.

Friday Afternoon Pre-Game Song:
The Denial Twist by the White Stripes. The music video for this song was directed by Michel Gondry and involves Conan O'Brien, which is pretty awesome.

Also, the USHL's leading scorer, Andy Miele, looks like he will be playing for Miami soon. Miele played high school hockey in Michigan for Grosse Pointe North High School, the same school that White Stripes drummer Meg White attended.

Games I'd Want to See If I Had Unlimited Funds:
That US/Canada World Juniors game looks pretty interesting.

Controversial Play That a WCHA Official Will Probably Screw-Up: They'll miss something because they'll be too busy collecting their royalty checks from Subway.


Cliche Arena Song of the Week:
Cotton-Eyed Joe. A folk song more than a century half old that was absolutely murdered in 1994 by a band named Rednex(not surprising), who hailed from Sweden(very surprising). Here's the music video. If you make it past the half-way point of the video, you're not human. One of the theories for the meaning of the term "cotton-eyed" is that a person's eyes would become milky white as a result of having syphilis.

(This is the point where Carnac the Great puts the envelope up to his head, says "Cotton-Eyed Joe, Rednecks, and STDs" and then opens the envelope and reads a slip of paper that says, "Name three things found on St. Cloud State's campus.")*

After a rough illness this week, food is the last thing I've wanted to think about.

Arena Food of the Week:
Ditto.

Wisdom of Michael Scott:
"Guess what? I have flaws. What are they? Oh I don’t know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally, I’ll hit somebody with my car. So sue me. No, don’t sue me. That’s the opposite of the point that I’m trying to make."
