I'm a Little Slow

by Anne

I just put some things together that you've all probably already figured out.


The Buffalo Sabres played in the first Winter Classic on January 1, 2008. Duh. We all know this. I also got food poisoning that day. Good memories all around.

Brian Campbell scored Buffalo's only goal. I'm sure we all recall.

Brian Campbell plays for the Chicago Blackhawks now and he's being paid an obscene amount of money to do so.

The Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings will play in the next Winter Classic on January 1, 2009 at Wrigley Field.

Here's Soupy on the Hockey Show shilling the next Winter Classic and introducing a video from the last Winter Classic:

Soupy: Newest Blackhawk and Winter Classic goal scorer.
If you ignore the face and just look at his arms, its kind of ok.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume no one from the Blackhawks organization has seen this video:


The Soupster, the only Buffalo Sabre or Pittsburgh Penguin to be publicly caught bashing the Winter Classic is the only player from the first Winter Classic to be playing in the next one.




  1. I love irony!

    That video will never die, and that alone is why Youtube makes life worth living. =P

  2. OH SOUPY. How my love for you has now turned to unbridled ..apathy. You are ridiculous anoverrated and a bigger crybaby than I am and yet you still tug at my heart.

    Brian Campbell, I wish I knew how to quit you.

  3. What I love is soupy really doesn’t look bad if you lob of his head. But, then who wants someone who’s been decapitated? There’s a word for that…I don’t know it, but I’m sure it’s not nice. I really hope he pulls his groin and can’t play in the “stupid fucking ice bowl”.

  4. Chaz, I love how you are looking for a positive aspect in the 2009 Ice Bowl. And groins seem so easy to injure. We will all cross our fingers for that, then I may be able to watch.

    Oh, MJ, how can you love someone who constantly looks like the most complex thought they have ever had is "DUH!" Seriously, look at his pictures, every one of them, he appears to be getting ready to say duh or to have just said it. It's sad, really. But he gets no sympathy from me. Just don't care for him and never have.

  5. Is that the Blackhawks' dressing room? It looks like the kids' section of a department store. Seriously, look at how tiny that Toews is!

  6. Youtube makes life worth living

    How true that is. I'll never forget when that video popped up in my "New videos that might interest you" section on YouTube like the day after it was posted. If I had known the dramz it would create, I would've created this blog earlier just to post it, haha.

  7. You are ridiculous anoverrated and a bigger crybaby than I am and yet you still tug at my heart.

    RIGHT?! Everytime I see Soupy I involuntarily start flailing and yelling. Once he was traded I was kind of expecting him to just fall off the face of the earth. It's like he's an ex-boyfriend you're not quite over who's doing better than you are and its driving you insane.

  8. What I love is soupy really doesn’t look bad if you lob of his head.

    For me its the hair. Just cut the hair, buzz it off, its FINE, SOUPSTER, don't do the Timmy, but maybe try the Goose buzzcut look. It might work. DO IT.

  9. Just don't care for him and never have.

    I can't get over my sentimental attachment to the 2006 team and Soupster was a part of it, I just can't let it go. I'm weak!

  10. Is that the Blackhawks' dressing room? It looks like the kids' section of a department store.

    Haha, I thought the same thing at first! I was like "what a strage set up, that can't be efficient or good for team chemistry to be in awkward lines like that". But if you watch the video he says that they're at the Blackhawks Convention at a hotel in downtown Chicago.

  11. For me its the hair.

    The hair works if he grows the lumberjack beard. The beard also helps deaden the "duh" face.
