There are few things in life as moving as Liev Schreiber narrating moving pictures of hockey players. We know this.
And yet, every year we’re unprepared for the tears and goosebumps when the NHL unveils its new Stanley Cup Playoffs commercials. The league dropped two new ones on Friday morning, but they’re not exactly playoff spots. Instead, they commemorate the 125th anniversary of the trophy itself.
And we … uh, we need a minute. Watch them while we grab some tissues.
The first one is called “Imperfectly Perfect” and highlights the loving wear and tear inflicted on the Stanley Cup over the years.
So the team announced that it was going to crack down on season ticket holders planning to sell their tickets on the secondary market. Like, say — selling your tickets on StubHub.
The Washington Post checked StubHub’s listings and found no Chargers games anywhere on the site at all. The team’s home games were also absent from several other secondary ticket sale sites.
It’s a curious problem that almost never occurs with NFL teams. If every team in the league tried to ban fans from using the business that sponsored the stadium:
Andrew Bogut (Cavaliers): It was reported that the other Mavericks castoff — technically dealt to Philadelphia in the Nerlens Noel trade and then bought out — will be headed to Cleveland as well. If we get our third straight Cavaliers vs. Warriors Finals, then Bogut switching sides is an interesting wrinkle.
Briante Weber (Hornets): To make room for Barnes, the Warriors waived the promising Weber. He quickly caught on with Charlotte on a 10-day contract.
Furthermore, the newest Ohio State verbal is ranked as the third best player at his position and the second best player in the state of Ohio just behind ’18 OT Jackson Carman — another major target for the Buckeyes. In what may come as a surprise to many, Gill is actually the first in-state player in the class to commit to Ohio State.
