Game 7 vs. Leafs tonight!

Throwing in a little penalty box trivia:

I was big into the Rochester Amerks as a kid.

What a disappointment when, in the 1972-73 season, Battleship Bob Kelly fell just four (4) minutes short of averaging three (3) minutes per game (206 minutes in the box in 70 games).

Metric Conversion Controversy


via Home Depot

Attorneys are demanding that urinal makers discontinue the practice of stamping flush rates on the top of urinals.

Title IX activists claim it gives males an unfair academic advantage in math and science, since males are able to use the info in Metric/English volume conversion problems.
