Pain doesn't hurt.

How does one obtain a studly mug such as the one seen above? There's an easy answer. Thanks to Scarlett for pointing this out (scroll down to the bottom of the post). Follow the link on her site to get the whole story.

"...Joni is as delicate as a 19th century lady." Priceless.

Russian Super League Hockey > Essay Assignment on Orange Revolution

While my fantasy hockey teams' stats are all over the playoff map, I'd like to mention that the Lokomotiv's playoff dance is going just fine. I believe they're set to head into round three of the playoffs against the Metallurg Mg after having defeated the CSKA in four games (which is not a sweep in the RSL).

Fine job, boys!

The Relief Sets In

'Tis a fine time to be an Igor Ulanov Fan Club! Though Ulanov has presumably known all along of his whereabouts, his devoted (one post per month - shame!) fan club has recently come across some new news. Thanks to trusty Yaroslavl correspondent Simone for alerting us to the fact that he had been playing on Loko's farm team after the mysterious events. They lost in the second round of the playoffs. Rumour has it that he may even return to the team next season under different coaches. We're still not clear on what led to his disappearance in the first place, but we're hoping that he hasn't been charged with an attitude problem.

Yaroslavl is currently battling CSKA Moscow in the Super League playoffs. The series is tied 1-1, with the next game happening on the 16th. Good Luck!
