Things Canadians can do on Saturday nights during the NHL lockout

1. Deface pictures of Gary Bettman.
2. Not deface pictures of Donald Fehr.

(And if you think I'm being unfair blaming Bettman and the owners for the lockout, just remember that the owners caused the cancellation of the 2004-05 season to create this system (hard salary cap tied to league revenue) that they now say they can’t do business under. Bitch, please.)


3. Rent Bon Cop, Bad Cop and enjoy the zany, bilingual, hockey-themed, Lethal Weapon homage. 


Especially the scene where the cops kidnap the head of the hockey league, Harry Buttman (Get it? Buttman? Heh.), and stuff him in a hockey bag.


4. Go to the clearance section at Michael's or Wal-mart, buy the loudest yarn you can get, and start crocheting Don Cherry a new suit.




5. Debate the following: Whose mullet was more egregious -- Wayne Gretzky's or Jaromir Jagr's?




6. Drink beer and weep quietly.



Please feel free to suggest other possible Saturday night pursuits in the Comments section. 

Thank you.

  2. I actually loved Good Cop/Bon Cop! And not just "for a Canadian film" but in general. It was decent and funny in places and memorable. And you weren't kidding about the mullets. Ewwww....

    1. I own Bon Cop, Bad Cop on DVD. Love it!Especially the scene where the grow op burns down and they can't stop laughing. I probably could find more mullet pix, I seem to remember that Wendel Clarke of the Leafs had one too, but I'll take mercy on everyone's eyes.

    1. Yeah, Wayne is rocking the hockey hair, lol. I'm used to watching on hockey on CBC on Saturday nights and I miss it.

  5. No kidding. For a scary Halloween, turn out the lights, light some candles and Google 'hockey hair images.' You may never sleep again.

  6. Gretzky's mullet is so egregious mostly because he's otherwise such a cutie. Jagr? She's cute too...

    1. I know, right? Doesn't it look like there's at least half a can of Aquanet in there?
