Mikael Granlund’s “Lacrosse” Style Scoop Hockey Goal Video

Mikael Granlund, a 19 year old hockey player from Finland drafted 9th overall last year by the Minnesota Wild, just scored what may well be the play of the year on Friday the 13th of May, 2011!

On the IIHF World Championship semi-final stage against the Russians, at full speed stealing the puck in the corner, then walking around a player, then having that player chase him behind the net, Mikael scoops up the puck and puts it up and under the crossbar. He scored “lacrosse style”, as some like to say, to give Finland a 1-0 lead. But never mind my description. Have a look for yourself because words don’t do this goal justice!

Video of Roger Federer Making “The Shot” at US Open Semi-final 2009 vs Djokovic

In the US Open 2009 semi-finals between Roger Federer, this was the point that set up match point for Roger Federer against Novak Djokovic. WOW!

.

Some people called this the best shot ever. I’ll just call this “The Shot”. Dick Enberg and John McEnroe were making the call.

I was out of my seat, landing just as the ball landing in and pumping my fist, giving Roger a standing O in my living room.

The only thing better would have been that Roger won the match or championship on such a point, but it’s plenty good any old time!

p.s. You’ve got to love how fast this stuff gets on YouTube. I estimated less than 5 minutes!

Dare to Wear Facebook Tagging Picture Meme

Time for another Facebook picture tagging meme evolution!

Instead of just associating people with things, or suggesting they Should Try something, it’s time to try a different motivational technique and up the ante on the fun a little bit!

This is mostly for daring the guys (and some girls) you tag to wear some things women wear for a day!

This includes make-up and hair as well as actual clothing. Why? Education purposes, of course! 😉

Seriously! For the guys, I wonder how many  know what women have to put up with to wear some of the things to make them look/feel attractive, or to be so for a guy, or that society pressures them to. Ultimately, it is the woman’s choice to wear or not wear any of these things, but having an appreciation of the trouble some of these items cause to life could only enhance gender relations. How many jokes and misunderstandings do you know of regarding how long women take to dress and such? For the girls, just good old fun.

Now, before anyone “responsible” freaks on me, let me just say this was designed with a lot of thought so as not to be disruptive, even for school cause I know a lot of teenagers are on Facebook and may use this. I personally recommend a Saturday of fun or something, though, or a stag party. Sure, it’s not your usual dress, but I don’t have anything in here like thongs or perfume that could really look obscene or violate no scent policies. And nobody said this had to be on the outermost, either. Just visible somehow to confirm, although it’d be funner the more visible something were, like the fishnets under shorts instead of hidden under full length jeans.

Remember, I’m Digital Citizen, not Digital Troublemaker, Digital Deviant, Digital Rebel Rouser or anything of the sort.

I suggest if you use this to choose a “Dare Day” where those tagged can show up together so no one is alone in being poked fun at, and I beg for just good-natured poking fun.

NO BULLYING, PLEASE!
