Patriots: “Boston Bruins fans and our National Anthem”

All of us were horrified by the Boston Marathon Bombings, but there was little that we could do here to shed any new light on the situation.

A ‘Quick’ Highlight Reel

This blog doesn’t do sports…usually. But, since the Stanley Cup Finals are going on right now (Game 3 is tonight), this could arguably fall under the “NewsGeneral” heading.

Plus, I love hockey.

My Bruins aren’t in it this year (*sniffle*), but the LA Kings are trying for their first cup ever and find themselves up 2-0 over the Devils, going into tonight’s game. The Kings’ surprising success is largely due to the incredible performance of their goalie, Jonathan Quick. Quick is having a career year, and some of his saves have been head-shakingly good.

Even if you’re not a hockey fan, this video gives you some of his best ones from this year in just under 4 short minutes. Just think how impressed your co-workers will be when you tell them that of course you knew that in the playoffs so far, Quick has a 1.44 GAA (goals against average) and a 9.47 Save Percentage.

And suddenly, you’ll be living in a little town called “Instant Sports Guru”, …population: YOU.
