The Kesler Chronicles

A mere 49 years later, and I still do this guy’s job. Only I taste coffee instead of tea, and I do it in Vancouver rather than Baltimore.

Ryan Kesler traded in his stick for a referee’s whistle in Vancouver on Wednesday, but not to worry — it was just for one night during the NHL lockout.
About fifty road hockey players laced up their skates under the Cambie Bridge on Wednesday in a game organized by the Canucks star, featuring an appearance by the fan-favourite “Green Men” and anthem singer Mark Donnelly. Kevin Bieksa played on one of the teams, and defenceman Jason Garrison joined Kesler as another referee.
“It’s just something we wanted to do to have some fun,” Bieksa said to the Vancouver Sun. “Every time we’ve been talking hockey lately it’s been serious and [about] the CBA and all that, so we’re just going back to our roots for a fun road hockey game. In the pouring rain.” (Photo: Ian Lindsay/Postmedia News)


Wish I would’ve been there!

Obama mentions his wife in his victory speech: “…The woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago”

Romney mentions his wife in his concession speech: “… The woman I chose to marry”

It’s amazing how someone’s views on equality can come out in one simple sentence

My first try at canning turned out to be a success! We’ll be having homemade pickled beans in our caesars in three weeks!
