If You Like Hockey Fights and Oil Terminology, Last Night’s Stars Game Was Your Eden

Neither Zac nor I (two of three people in the office right now) watch enough Stars hockey to know if this kind of terminology is commonplace, but it certainly is entertaining. During last night’s Stars-Red Wings game, a scrum broke out. It was a pretty good fight; a flurry of upper-cuts will do that. The best part, though, was the call, which included the following phrases:

– “Ahhhh the West Texas pump jack!”
– “He got hit with one late, but man was he pumping oil early!”

This barely makes sense in Dallas, but boy was it entertaining.

    First fight was immediately after the puck dropped. Must have been an old grudge.

    Best match ever, eh? More shiners and missing teeth than I’ve seen in quite some time.

    Al Shaver is rolling over in his grave at that call. Thanks, Norm Greed.
