A Paulina Gretzky post that has pictures of her, and zero news value


Paulina Gretzky, daughter of “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, unexpectedly deleted her Twitter account this week. The gorgeous Paulina, known as quite the party girl, frequently posted photos of herself drinking alcohol and wearing next to nothing. Quite common for a  22-year-old girl, but not most 22 year old girls aren’t the daughter of a hockey legend.

Paulina tweeted:  “Having a nice sit down dinner with my dad about social media..haha #SIKEEE.”

Which obviously implies that they had a family heart-to-heart chat which led to this:

Wayne Gretzky skating in a Chicago Blackhawks jersey? Yes, really


No that’s not an airbrush or a photo shop. It’s truly The Great One Wayne Gretzky in a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. It’s a vision every Hawks fan dreamed of in 1986.

Upon further inspection of a pic that is pure blasphemy to Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers fans…

Cubs take Offspring of Wayne Gretzky, Shawon Dunston on Day 2 of MLB Draft


The Chicago Cubs concluded the second day of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft yesterday by accumulating a total of 30 selected players. The third and final day of the draft is today with rounds 31-50. They took some legacy devices by selecting talented players with talented genes- including the offspring of hockey’s “the great one” Wayne Gretzky and 1982 #1 overall MLB pick Shawon Dunston.

But before we get to those guys…

…The Cubs selected infielder Daniel Vogelbach out of Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers , Florida in the second round (68th overall) and outfielder Ezekiel DeVoss out of the University of Miami ( Fla. ) in the third round (98th overall).

Go here for more on Vogelbach, who kind of resembles Chunk from “The Goonies.” Of course the kid with the truffle shuffle could never hit a 508 home run. He is committed to the University of Florida so we’ll see what happens.

Blackhawks End Two Streaks In One Night

It’s no new news that the Blackhawks are off to a slow start, but slow is an understatement at this point. Sunday night was the first home win since October 27th—that’s eighteen days between home victories.

stalberg scores

Last year, they lost all of eight home games in the entire season, taking full advantage of home ice.  This year, the Hawks were on a four-game home losing streak and we’re barely at the quarter mark of the season.

After Sunday night’s game, there were huge sighs of relief in the Hawks’ locker room and the stands. The Ducks, on the other hand, were less than thrilled.  The club had their season high six-game winning streak snapped in a 3-2 overtime loss. Although they may have gained the point they needed, the loss was particularly painful in that they were literally one win away from matching the franchise-record seven-game winning streak. The record was so close they could smell it, and at the last second, the Hawks shattered what hope the Ducks had had going in to the game.
