I lurved mindless action movies featuring European beefcakes who knew some martial arts when I was a teenager. I would go watch them by myself, even, haha. I think Dolph Lundgren was my favourite of them all. I named one of my stuffed toys (a dolphin, har) after him. He's looking really old these days, most likely because he's old. I found out from his website *chortles* that he's in Dallas filming a new movie *chortles* and he used to play hockey as a kid growing up in Sweden, so, presence explained.
So last night during Coach's Corner, Don Cherry kind of slashed a couple of guys (TP being one!) and I found it incredibly hilarious and laughed for like 5 minutes, which is really about 4 minutes and 55 seconds longer than I should have, but anyway, I uploaded to YouTube last night to show people. Someone linked to it from HFBoards and it's now been viewed over 1400 times and is the #9 top favorite for today in sports (English). The slash has universal appeal!
greatkate went to the Oilers team autograph day and got Petr's autograph and I was vicariously squeeful about it. :D
greatkate: I put my (Team Canada) jersey down and he puts his hands up like, no, no, so I said, "Everyone else signed it!" (and pointed to Dvorak's signature but I'm sure he didn't notice) and he throws the pen down and shakes his head, so I was like, "Please?" and he laughed and signed it. Then I said thank you and he grinned at me.
