And here I cringe at the mere thought of wearing contacts and having to touch my eyeball. :o

] arm Thursday, five days after becoming pinned by a
] boulder, and he was hiking to safety when he was spotted
] by searchers, authorities said.
] Aron Ralston, 27, of Aspen, was in serious condition late
] Thursday at a hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado.

] adjacent to Canyonlands National Park in far southwestern
] Utah, when a 200-pound boulder fell on him, pinning his
] right arm, authorities said.
] He ran out of water on Tuesday and on Thursday morning,
] he decided that his survival required drastic action.

] elbow and applied a tourniquet and administered first

Playoff hockey. Nothing like it on the planet.
Topic: Sports 11:13 pm EDT, Apr 30, 2003

] NHL playoff hockey. Sudden-death overtime. Sometimes,
] slow-death overtime, like when the Ducks beat the Stars
] in the fourth-longest game in NHL history last week.
] Nothing like it. Lots of great playoff games have gone
] long. So we give you the best of the overtime
] drama from the NHL playoffs.

My personal fave is when Yzerman scored on St. Louis in game 7's OT a few years back. I gave myself a concussion from hitting my head on the ceiling I lept so high.

Stuff like this just makes me sick. On a positive note, I am glad to see it's just not Americans that are so utterly ridiculous and abuse legal systems.

Is a more peaceful NHL a better NHL?
Topic: Sports 1:52 pm EST, Nov  7, 2002

"It is a fear palpable throughout the NHL, a concern that can be dismissed as nostalgia for an era gone by but also touches a sensitive nerve with more than a few athletes and coaches."

"Tie Domi has the offensive ability to survive in the skill game.
The worry to some faced with the realities of a new NHL, one that might be a more skillful league but also appears more peaceful, is that this is a process that could rob the league of its color and personality."
