I won’t let a good story go by without sharing it. This one is no mean to embarrass the great Czar of Russia, Vladimir Putin who pilots, who plays piano, who scores 6 goals (on ice), who likes to stripe down, who finds ancient relics under the sea, who’s a knight …
- This CBS gif shows him putting on the ice hockey helmet on backward. One of the goals was scored when the goalie lift his leg. Oh well.
- This Time video, 1:50 minutes long, shows how he actually plays.
- The NYT writes about Ruble’s Free Fall Threatens Stability of K.H.L. Teams, that the KHL couldn’t pay their players.
Of the NYT piece, I have long wondered if the Russia could meet its obligations. The players who turned their back to NHL … oh well. USA is a free country. Its people have their choices, and options.
