In other news, has anyone else played the EASHL Beta? I've been playing with my cousin 2v2 and we're having some fun. Love how this year they are just doing player classes. It was so terrible every year facing the players who played non stop and had their little speedy midgets fly by you and not being able to stop them. Now it's an even playing field (for the most part) and if you're good at the game, you'll win (most of the time). The other day I played a Quadruple OT game and we ended up winning. It was quite exciting actually. 2v2 usually leads to a more boring game but it's nice. Especially since my cousin isn't the most skilled at the game. Oh well, it's about the fun, correct?
As I post this I'm playing Roller Coaster Tycoon. Took out all the rides and I'm watching all the guests puke, litter, and complain. Yes, my life has come to this.

Grand Rapids Griffins Alternate Jersey - Ryan C.
Colorado Avalanche / Detroit Red Wings Stadium Series - Snow Monster
Snow uses the first Stadium Series designs to shape up one of this years matchups. Obviously, the jerseys will not look like this, especially if the Colorado leak is true. Let's take this back to 2014. Would these work. Scold me in the comments, I don't care, but other than the huge skewed numbers and straight names the Detroit jersey is actually quite pretty. I'd be interested in seeing it made. Maybe I'm just having a crazy day. I haven't had any sugar and I'm usually always on a sugar high. The Avalanche jersey to me is in the other direction. The slanted chest stripe meeting up with the slanted hems and the same stripes on the yoke and arms cause this to be a little too busy for me. Also, as much as I love the yeti foot as a shoulder patch and I'm sad to see it go, I wouldn't want it on the front of a jersey actually. Although, I'd experiment more with the gray look. Could be something there!
Rating: 7.6/10 Overall
That's it for me today. Hope everyone has a great week. When I post next time it will be one week closer to hockey season. Or if you're a die-hard hockey fan like I am I'll reword it to one more week until the Regular Season. Also, my O'Reilly jersey still has not SHIPPED. I ordered it 21 days ago. Think someone had a little too much suds and crashed into a Tim Hortons? I hope not. I want that jersey. It will be my drinking jersey!
