Flames need a coach like this guy …

Kings driven by Sutter and his pursuit of perfection

Rex Murphy spanks the Leafs

what’s with all the GREEN men?

Green Man costumes are lycra body suits that are typically worn by people at large sporting events. The first appeared on the TV show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in 2007, but soon spread onto the internet, and into real life.
