Crate Hockey Tantrum

Milkcrate Hockey Tantrum

Tuukka Rask has only played 5 NHL games, but for the Providence Bruins of the AHL Rask made a name for himself with an all-star post-game tantrum. The finale of this display was throwing a milkcrate onto the ice from the tunnel. I love everything about this story. I wish I could do an interview with this guy.

Skulls & Crates go together like…?


I don’t exactly understand the situation here but the impulse is truly felt deep. Strapping a goat skull on to my milkcrate now seems exactly like what I should do first thing tomorrow morning. –> Crawling through the USA via John Glynn’s Blog

Crate Full of Kittens


When someone shows up with a milkcrate full of kittens you know what needs to be done. This happened recently at the humane society in the Bahamas, and they did what any good people would do–get those kitties homes! –> HSGB Updates & ‘Special’ Stories via Bahamas Islands Info
