Summary:

After leaving the NHL due to traumas related to the deaths of his wife and son in a fiery car accident, a very damaged Max Rockatansky makes his return playing for Las Vegas Citadel, a team with a longstanding rival with the Atlanta War Boys.
The road to the Stanley Cup is a long one.

I think one of the reasons hockey is so incredible and we’re all so drawn to it because it has made us feel better during times when we haven’t felt very much like ourselves. It gives us something to look forward to, like a Saturday afternoon game. It gives us something to hope for, a Stanley Cup victory for our team. And it gives us a connection to other people, other fans who want to see your team thrive as much as you do. And that is part of why I love it.

stupendousbadasses asked:

Taylor Hall had a banana for the first time today and i'm not coping well.

Please tell me there is more to this than that single tweet of his. I need to know the backstory to this. Why has he never had one? If he’s never had one, why is he having one now? Did someone buy it for him? Someone who was shocked he had never eaten a banana? How is Taylor Hall real. Someone help Taylor Hall. Please let him win something. Present him with the Stanley Cup for winning our hearts.

Our first speech for public speaking has to be on something we are well informed about/know a lot about. I’m going to do mine on the history of the Anaheim Ducks from our beginnings to our Stanley Cup win to modern day.

I think I’m going to open my speech with the famous “OFF THE FLOOR! ON THE BOARD! PAUL KARIYA!” moment because seriously, one of the top five moments in NHL history.

LA Dodgers Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda to Receive "Great Ones" Award from Jim Murray Memorial Foundation

PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – On October 24th, Tommy Lasorda, baseball executive and ambassador best known for his two decades as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, will officially have his name affixed to one of his idols when his name is inscribed upon the Jim Murray Memorial Foundationʼs “Great Ones” trophy, a bronze bust of Pulitzer Prize winner, Jim Murray.

Lasorda, who managed the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1976-1996, will be presented the Award for his meritorious career of more than sixty years in the Dodgersʼ organization. Previous winners include “Great Ones” Arnold Palmer, Joe Namath, Luc Robitaille, Bobby Rahal, Chris McCarron, Duke Snider, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Hall of Fame sports journalist Rick Reilly.

“The Great Ones Award is our Stanley Cup. Each year we add a new name to it for that individualʼs contribution to his sport,” said Bill McCoy, president of the Jim Murray Memorial Foundation (JMMF). “Tommy Lasorda and Jim Murray were friends for many years. It seems fitting we honored both their legacies with this award.”

The Jim Murray Memorial Foundation (JMMF) was established by Linda Murray Hofmans in 1999 following the death of her husband, Jim Murray, longtime Los Angeles Times sportswriter, winner of the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, and 1988 Cooperstown Hall of Fame inductee. The JMMF awards journalism scholarships to the nation’s top college journalists through a national essay competition.

To date, the JMMF has awarded 99 scholarships totaling over $500,000. Thirty-one (31) colleges and universities across the United States participate in the competition. Six 2015 Murray Scholars from Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis, Northwestern University, Penn State University, University of Georgia, University of Kansas and University of Missouri will be honored at the October 24th JMMF Day at the Races & Monte Carlo Night event at Santa Anita Racetrack.

Day 14
Back on a plane, headed out over the Rockies, on our way back to the centre of the universe, the ‘67 Stanley Cup Champs(as stated by our pilot). Arrived back safe and sound to wonderful loving parents/grandparents who made a surprise pickup run and met us at the baggage claim.
What a trip!!!
