Extra’s special Christmas finale

11 01 2008


Like he had done with his original Office series, Ricky Gervais has thrilled me with another episode of his short lived TV series, Extras which I’ve previously discussed on my webpage. You should certainly try to get your hands on this Christmas special if you’re a fan of the show.

Tribute to Ron Hextall

11 01 2008


Since my readership is up to an all time high of three (maybe four) people, here’s a special feature for one of them, my brother. While honing his own skills as a goaltender, my brother was a huge fan of Ron Hextall despite having a menace level which was the polar opposite to the Ron’s (who was quite an intimidator); it was obviously his ‘other’ fine qualities that my brother wanted to emulate…

Ron Hextall was famous for a couple of things: being the first goalie to score a goal in the regular season and in the playoffs, his exceptional stick handling ability, being awarded the Conn Smythe trophy (for most valuable player in the playoffs) in a losing effort vs Edmonton in 1987 – something that has only happened five times, and for his feisty temper (I remember him being described as a kindergartener in an adults body).

Here’s a highlight video showing his first goal, his remarkable skill and his red hot temper.
