Hitting the goalie’s water bottle when you score is not only one of the coolest things you can do in hockey, but in all of sports. I bet there was something equally as cool in the old Aztec games of tlachtli, but I don't know any old Aztecs to ask.
For some reason this all reminded me of jai alai and I learned this from Wickipedia:
"Jai alai" (or just one of the words) appears frequently in crossword puzzles due to the high recurrence of vowels in its name. In a roughly ten-year survey of the New York Times daily crossword puzzle, "Jai ___" (for ALAI) was found to be the single most common clue-and-answer pair, appearing 39 times exactly the same way.
I haven’t seen Juno yet, but I did see Ellen Page on SNL and she immediately vaulted into my Top Five Most Annoying People list. I don’t even have such a list, but she was so annoying she made it easy to pretend that I did. She doesn't seem so annoying in the movie trailers, so perhaps she is a remarkable actress and should have won the Oscar. I knew I should have returned the application to The Academy that they sent me.
I’ve never had a stuffed crust pizza. I’m not planning to, either. And you can’t make me.
Happy First Day of Spring!
