Blue Jackets will change Jeff Carter jerseys into Jack Johnson jerseys for free

When the Blue Jackets signed winger Jeff Carter this past offseason, Columbus fans had plenty of reason to be excited. Carter was supposed to give them a perennial 30-goal scorer to play alongside Rick Nash and anchor one of the better lines in hockey for years to come.

VIDEO: Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson enjoy a kiss on the LA Kings “Kiss Cam”

This is much cuter than the time Madonna was featured on the Kiss Cam and she made out with her over-inflated sense of self worth. The Los Angeles Kings are just one of many pro teams that employ the Kiss Cam during breaks in the action, probably because it’s cheap, fun, and the fans seem to get a kick out of it.  So it only makes sense that when a Hollywood power couple like...
