Default Calgary Flames Trying To Keep Fact That They're A Hockey Team From Landlord

Calgary's Big Secret
Quote:
Iginla quickly changed into jeans and a sweater and distracted the oblivious landlord by leading him outside to admire the night sky while the rest of the team hid all the hockey equipment
Nice to see some recognition.

Not as funny as the one about the Oilers trying to trick their fans into believing they are a hockey team.

Meh - didn't hit my funny bone.
Actually caught myself thinking "where they put the other ~6500 fans?"

Does Anyone Else Find Sentences Where The First Letter Of Every Word Is Capitalized Incredibly Difficult To Read?

This part made me laugh:

Quote:
"Sometimes [second-line center] Brendan [Morrison] will accidentally blurt out, 'I think we fooled Mr. Bennigan into thinking we're not playing hockey,' when Mr. Bennigan is standing right there," Iginla said. "But Brendan has a reputation for being an idiot, so Mr. Bennigan never takes anything he says seriously."

Well at least in a make believe story they singled out the ex-Canuck as the idiot.

Ahh I see a few of us quoted the same part, for awesomeness no doubt.

I would find humour in this if it was posted in the off-topic lounge

I don't get this onion stuff. It is just plan stupid. Wouldn't it at least be almost funny if it was somewhat believable? But the few 'articles' I have started to read were just play silly. Oh well. I don't get the humour of it all. Which happens for a few things. hahah

The onion sports dome is hilarious, I think it's because they really mirror a sports show in production value but put in absolutely ridiculous content.
