It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Growing up in Sweden, if Jonas Jerebko was going to play any sport professionally, it was more than likely going to be hockey. But when you grow up to be 6'10" 235 pounds and you're not named Zdeno Chara, your career path won't lead you to the ice rink. Jerebko had the opportunity to show off his skating ability when he recently practiced with the Red Wings
The 24 year old Jerebko won't be confused for Pavel Datsyuk, but for a tree on skates, his showing was pretty impressive. I'd pay a dollar to see other gangily NBAers get on the ice and flop around. It'd bring a different meaning to the hoops term "broken ankles".

You’ll have to show me photographic proof to tell me that this isn’t the funniest thing you’ve seen all Halloween. It’s Zdeno Chara dressed as a rabbit. He’s accompanied by fellow Bruins teammates at a children’s hospital, spreading the joy of Halloween, I guess.
I can only hope we’ll get a similar showing at Easter. Just pure gold.

Yes, this photo, tweeted this afternoon by NESN's Naoko Funayama, is real.
It's also downright ghastly. One wonders if the plan here was to...
The Red Wings wanted better out of their special teams, out of Ty Conklin, out of themselves, basically, after being humbled by the NHL's best.
The Bruins brightened the days of some kids on Tuesday, and in the process, the images will probably brighten the days of a lot of their fans as well. A quartet of B's helped spread some cheer at Children's Hospital in Boston when they showed up to visit with some of the children. To make things better, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Jordan Caron all showed...
