Overnight the new logos for the Dallas Stars have been leaked courtesy the team’s official iPhone app.
According to our amazing and always accurate sources, SportsLogos.Net can confirm that the new logos, which appear in the screenshots, are 100% accurate and will be used by the team in the 2013-14 NHL season. The leak was spotted and tweeted to us by @DamnOldNylon
Here’s a look at the screengrab from the app, via Twitter.
Perhaps Tom Hicks is best known for being a shrewd businessman who built his incredible wealth and subsequent empire through hard work and determination, as well as the ability to not give a crap about the little people he may have trampled along the way. However, even if Hicks were declared the Greatest Businessman in the History of Money by a panel including God, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, we’d all still remember him as that dude who destroyed the Texas Rangers (and Dallas Stars and Liverpool F.C.).
Ironically, as the New York Yankees are rumored to be begging Major League Baseball to void Alex Rodriguez’s massive contract, the man who first gave A-Rod the largest contract in sports history is now trying to sell the most expensive estate and property in the United States. Hicks recently listed his Crespi-Hicks Estate in Dallas on the hush-hush, but when a dude tries to sell his home for a whopping $135 million, people are going to talk about it.
It’s not exactly like you can just pop that f*cker on Craigslist and call it a day. So what the heck comes with a $135 million house anyway?
The NHL lockout is dragging on, and everyone is feeling the crunch. The Florida Panthers laid off Stanley C. Panther, players are heading overseas to find work and the poor Ice Girls are … well, actually, the Ice Girls are totally fine. Forget I mentioned them.
By way of Jimmy Traina and the Thursday edition of Hot Clicks comes this clip of the Dallas Stars Ice Girls saying nuts to ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Call Me Maybe’ parodies in favor of emulating Little Big Town’s country hit ‘Pontoon,’ which mostly requires them to hang out on the ocean and play on slides. It’s a good decision, especially for anyone watching, but they should probably let that redhead go in before she burns.
Random question, though … is anyone else like me? I’m not a huge fan of cheerleaders, but I LOVE Ice Girls. At the same time, I like Ice Girls less when they’re wearing bikinis or whatever than I do when they’re on the ice. I can’t figure out why, but I’ve narrowed it down to “hockey is happening around them” and “yoga pants”.
I was called a sucky pussy yesterday for believing that hockey fights are only a part of the game when hockey has actually been played, so I wanted to share footage of a completely justified bloody brawl. During the second period of Tuesday night’s game between the Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes, Coyotes captain Shane Doan gave Stars forward Jamie Benn a suckerpunch elbow to the jaw. As the adorably commentary noted, it was “right on the button” and “all heck” proceeded to break loose.
A rundown of penalties, courtesy of Puck Daddy:
Doan was given a fighting major for his bout with Brenden Morrow (who also received five minutes), as well as a two-minute elbowing minor for the hit on Benn.
The other penalties for the Coyotes: Raffi Torres with roughing and charging minors and a 10-minute misconduct; and Rusty Klesla with a roughing minor and a 10-minute misconduct.
The other penalties for the Stars: Steve Ott with roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct minors, and a 10-minute misconduct; and Trevor Daley with a roughing minor and a 10-minute misconduct.
As for Doan, he’s in trouble when the NHL gets a gander at this thing.
I’m starting to learn that almost anything you can get in trouble for in the NHL is somebody’s idea of how the game should be played. I guess that works for every sport. Personally I’d take off my skate and try to stab a guy if he nonchalantly skated by and blatantly tried to injure me with an elbow to the face, and I wouldn’t be upset if my team joined in.
As much as I bag on hockey, I really do like the sport despite being a St. Louis Blues fan and constantly miserable. What I really love is a good hockey fight, especially when the refs just let it happen, and even more so when everyone is into it. Take the Dallas Stars, for example. When fights break out at the American Airlines Center, the music from Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out plays over the speaker system. And things were no different on Wednesday night when Dallas’ Krys Barch got into it with Edmonton’s Zack Stortini.
Dallas ended up winning the game 3-1, as Brenden Morrow had two goals, but the real winner was my childhood. I think it’s imperative that we include more theme songs from classic video games into sporting events. We could play the Tetris theme every time Tony LaRussa makes a lineup change or the Super Mario Bros. music at San Antonio Spurs games because Manu Ginobli looks like a Koopa Troopa.
This video of the Dallas Stars’ Ice Girls frolicking in bikinis on a yacht is a couple days old now, but I never posted it over the holidays and today is slow as hell, so here you go. Titties and sunshine. Makes me feel awesome about it being December in New York City.
