Found May 18, 2012 on Sportress of Blogitude:
Few characters in television history have become so inextricably entwined with the actor who played them than David Puddy, the slow-witted, high-fiving, fur coat-wearing, Jesus-loving, germaphobe-afflicted, grease monkey-converted-to-salesman, on-and-off boyfriend of Elaine Benes, as portrayed by Patrick Warburton on Seinfeld. And perhaps the most memorable aspect of Puddy’s identity is that of his die-hard, over-the-top [...]

Martin Brodeur not a fan of Madison Square Garden

The Devils evened their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Rangers with a 3-2 win in Game 2 on Wednesday.

Kovalchuk, Devils denied by Lundqvist

Ilya Kovalchuk wound up for a hard one-timer in the third period, only to see it gobbled up again by Henrik Lundqvist. The New Jersey Devils' biggest scoring threat shoved his stick back into his hand like he was jamming it into a holster and skated away with more frustration etched on his face. It was that kind of a day again for the Devils against the New York Rangers'...

Devils Looking to Protect Home Ice

Tom Gulitti at the Bergen Record has this from the Devils on protecting home ice...Ilya Kovalchuk..."That's our goal. You want to protect our home ice like we did against Philly. So, I think those two games will be crucial. I think the Rangers play a little different on the road too than they do at home, so we've go to take advantage of that. Every team, they're...

Sutter Pushing The Right Buttons

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, The Kings had already disposed of the No. 1-seeded Vancouver Canucks when Coach Darryl Sutter flipped two of his left wings and turned a good team into a juggernaut that has trampled the best the Western Conference has to offer while moving within a victory of earning a berth in the Stanley Cup finals.

An apology

Obviously, I am taking quite a beating for the article I wrote regarding the New Jersey Devils and their No Blue campaign. For starters, I did not mean this as an offense to any Devils’ fans. This was an opinion article and one that may be I should have written very differently. I guess what I am still having trouble understanding is why an organization, that has had attendance...

Kings Getting Noticed

from Mark Pargas of the New York Times, The Los Angeles Kings are on a bit of a roll in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
