The Monday Mumble: RIP The Locker Room Of Memories

The Monday Mumble: RIP The Locker Room Of Memories

Northern Italy is an incredible place. Caught between heaven on earth and George Clooney’s playground, it is one of the most beautiful destinations on this glowing sphere with cultural subtleties that rival virtually any other area of Europe including it’s Southern counter-parts. On the quaint, calm, and incredibly Swiss portion of Lake Lugano lies a hotel that I once had the privilege of residing in for nearly a week. Mid-90’s, with my father touring the globe on a consulting endeavor, I had the privilege of making this neck of the woods my own personal “Choose Your Own Adventure” novel. It was a glorious week, and the moments of sheer pleasure still bathe my dreams.

Memories of architecture. Homes jetting upward, old-fashioned in a gray scale hue, seemingly emerged from the earth over timeless Swiss-Italian decades. Inside they were the complete opposite. Curtains in windows over 20′ tall, wooden tables with matching chairs that likely exist only in this particular home, in this particular area of the world. The churches were drastic, cold, and ominous. The local eateries colorful, friendly, and familiar.

However, as it is in most cultures it’s the people that make or break you experience, and the crepe-filled smiles of the Italian-Swiss-Italians were incredibly endearing.

About Those Four Linus Omark Goals…

About Those Four Linus Omark Goals…

Buried in a busy week of call-ups, injury news, and other hockey related tomfoolery was a four goal night by Linus Omark against the San Antonio Rampage. The Oklahoma City Barons would go on to win, 5-4 (Matt Ford scoring the additional one), but it wasn’t before Sir Linus had a wild and woolly four game night. He was due a good night, and a good night was had. The Rampage had no answer for him, and continued to play softball defense allowing him too much time with the puck. They quickly adjusted the next night, and successfully hogtied his offensive awesomeness.

In this particular game it was an early gaff that really spurned Omark to greatness. After a clearing attempt gone awry by Omark, the Rampage’s Bobby Butler scored an easy first goal of the game. The moment did not sit well with Linus, and he buried himself in a fantastic remainder of the game. Well done.

To the goals, in gif form.

Monday Mumble: Angry Mailbag Of Edmonton Hate

It’s a weird feeling knowing that people are reading this site, my words, and my attempt at digital scrivening. I know, I know, what a terribly self absorbed comment to make given the great amount of interaction that you, the fine readers of TtF, have…

Monday Mumble: Blackwell, Oklahoma Is The Key To Ending The NHL Lockout

I’m a little worried about the ongoing non-negotiations of the NHLPA and a league of extraordinarily wealthy gentlemen. Not because talks have been put on hold, or that the Winter Classic has been canceled, or that a foreseeable agreement is about as readily available as…

Monday Mumble: The Fair & Balanced Equation

Monday Mumble: The Fair & Balanced Equation

November is now here. And there is a lot to mumble about in the world of Barons hockey. I’m not a pessimistic person, and if I were, these mumbles would be more frequent and more seething. Instead I’m an optimistic thinker to a fault. I bring this…
