Okay, I'm the last one in the world...

... to see this, but I've gotta put it up anyway, just in case any one of my dozen or so readers hasn't yet either.

Congratulations to Dove yet again for their realistic, and thankfully enlightening, look at "beauty." When a company does stuff like this to demystify the so-called beautiful people, they deserve to do millions in sales.

They still love Lanny in Calgary

Ode to Lanny

I forget the name of the restaurant, but it's only a few blocks away from the Calgary Tower. A great ode to Calgary's most-loved player, who is the only opposing captain to ever accept the Stanley Cup in the Montreal Forum.

A lot of us have mental pictures of Lanny in a Leafs jersey, but does anyone else remember this guy wearing a Colorado Rockies uniform?

Well... Good on the Ducks I guess

It's a sad statement that the last three teams to hoist Lord Stanely's Cup were borne out of Gary Bettman's expansionist greed, employed more marketing guys than they have fans, and, worst of all each one beat a far more entertaining Canadian squad.

That said, you gotta like the fact that a hardass GM like Brian Burke put together 19 Canadian players (the highest ration of Canucks on any NHL roster), and basically pummelled the rest of the league into submission all year long. And no one, but no one, can begrudge a classy guy like Teemu Selanne his sip from the Holy Grail.

Anyone want to join me in a trip to Cranbrook with the Niedermayer boys bring the Cup home to roost this summer?

PS. It's another sad statement that Martin Brodeur has never has his name engraved on the Conn Smyth trophy. I mean, Cam Ward has a playoff MVP honour, but Marty Brodeur doesn't?
