You'd think making a bronze statue of a man who looks like a bronze statue would be quite easy, but as proven by an artist's shall we say, unflattering rendering of Cristiano Ronaldo, that doesn't appear to be the case. The statue in question was unveiled at a ceremony celebrating the naming of the Madeira [...]

The Lead Sports - How do I get my face on cocaine? How do I get my face on cocaine?

Authorities in Peru seized an estimated 85 million dollars worth of cocaine on Wednesday, most of which was in packages containing the name and picture of Lionel Messi. We know what you're thinking there'd be a whole lotta money in the athletes-sponsoring-narcotics market. Just us? Cool. Obviously, the greatest soccer player on the planet [...]

The Lead Sports - Team America: World Champs Team America: World Champs

After cruising through the entire World Baseball Classic, Puerto Rico ran into a star-spangled buzzsaw in the final, getting crushed by the United States 8-0. Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman delivered six one-hit innings for the US, displaying a two-seam fastball that was harder to get good wood on than a termite-riddled lumberyard. Ian Kinsler, [...]

The Lead Sports - "A Significant Issue For The League"

You pay good money to attend a Cavs road game with your basketball-obsessed child and instead of LeBron James, you get 48 minutes of Derrick Williams and Channing Frye. Currency flushed down the proverbial toilet? Basically. And that's why Adam Silver issued a memo to all NBA teams about resting stars. The NBA has zero [...]

In what's sure to become an unnecessarily long 30 for 30 and/or series of Trump tweets about why the wall needs to be higher, a former member of a Mexican tabloid, Mauricio Ortega, is being questioned as a person of interest in the disappearance of Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey. Locker room footage was leaked [...]

The Lead Sports - So much for madness So much for madness

On the heels of a second consecutive missed NCAA Tournament, Indiana has decided to part ways with head coach Tom Crean after nine seasons. Crean's tenure featured some '70s Cheech highs and '30s stock market lows, epitomized this season with wins against teams like UNC and Kansas but losses to teams like Fort Wayne. From [...]

The Lead Sports - "The Ball's in your court..."

When it comes to making outlandish comments for attention and talking more out of an ass than Eddie Murphy in Shrek, Charles Barkley appeared to be in a league of his own. That was, until LaVar Ball forced himself into the public eye on the coattails of his insanely talented children. Nay, in Ball, Barkley seems [...]

Seattle said that they like Eddie Lacy's curves and want the former Packers running back to weigh-in around 240 lbs after signing a one-year deal with the team for $3 million guaranteed and $2.5 million in incentives. Most teams wanted Eddie to continue with his P90X workouts and shed pounds like patrons of a British [...]

Slapshot Old Time Hockey - The Hockey Sweater Logo. The Hockey Sweater Logo.

My love of hockey started many moons ago, I suppose my brother David is to blame, he used to take me to watch football first and Sunderland were our team, after the game we headed back into town to the leisure centre and watch some Ice-hockey.
The home team were the Crowtree Chiefs and one of my first games were against the Billingham Bombers it was a local derby and quite a feisty game I remember. Although I seemed to enjoy watching the Chiefs I definitely saw a big difference in quality when we visited our other local team the Durham Wasps (O`Conner, Brebant, Smith`s, Crapper etc....).
                    The best matchups had to be against the Whitley Warriors many a time we went to see a fight and a hockey game broke out. These were memorable times and i loved travelling around the country visiting other rinks. But my love for the game cranked up a gear when Channel 5 started televising live NHL games. I was in total awe of what I was seeing, so began my fascination for this breath taking sport. I had to find out more about all of the different uniforms, logos and nicknames.
                     I have read masses of books and magazines and will not be getting involved in where it began or who started this game. I am interested in the hockey logo and what it represents to the fans that follow it, hence the blog. I wanted to show people the interesting logos and try to find out about other ones that could end up lost through time.
Hopefully with my readers help I can gather enough information to fill a book perhaps. I know through my research their are some great works out their already ( SIHR Sweater museum, and logo database). I want to find out about the grass roots of hockey the amateur leagues [...]

Slapshot Old Time Hockey - The MELVILLE The MELVILLE " MILLIONAIRES" hockey club.

 Why the MILLIONAIRES?.
Melville was named after Charles Melville Hays the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway general manager who drowned in the sinking of the Titanic back in 1912. The STORY has it that Charles had gathered together a group of potential investors who were all millionaires and interested in helping the growth of the Township. Melville became a City in 1960.
The TRUTH has it that in 1914/15 local hockey pioneer Goldie Smith put together a senior team that won the coveted Allan Cup, the Championship of Canadian Senior Hockey, then a challenge trophy monopolized by the likes of Winnipeg, Ottawa and the Eastern Universities. Grumblings ensued that Melville must be some town of Millionaires to be able to lure players of such calibre. Goldie Smiths thinking was Hey
if thats what they think let them think it. [...]

When we define greatness we often refer to records, banners, and rings.Based solely on these standards of greatness Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder would not warrant mentioning. Unlike past greats Bobby Bowden, Joe Paterno, Tom Osborne and Paul Bryant or recent greats Pete Carroll, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer there are no national championship banners hanging in the rafters [...]

Michael Phelps, the undisputed greatest swimmer of all time graced the cover of Sports Illustrated for the twelfth and possibly final time. Although his athletic prowess is unquestioned, his antics outside of the pool has also been well chronicled as well. But for some reason the possession of illegal drugs, alcohol abuse and his arrest [...]
