Ryan Johansen, 1992

Ryan Johansen (1992-; 2010) is a Canadian ice hockey centre for the Colorado Avalanche – newly traded. He was drafted 4th in 2010, by the Canadian team Columbus Blue Jackets.

A friend’s niece had dated him since college but broke up because of him couldn’t say no to other gfs.

I certainly admire her principle but in reality, there are more girls who will throw themselves at him, a $8m a year player – he signed a 8 year / $64,000,000 contract with the Nashville Predators in 2017.

Ryan Johansen (1992-; 2010)

加拿大瑞恩·约翰森 (Ryan Johansen, 1992 年-; 2010 年) 是科罗拉多雪崩队的冰球中心 – 新交易. 2010年, 他以第四顺位被加拿大球队哥伦布蓝衣队选中.

一个朋友的侄女从大学开始就和他约会, 但因为他无法拒绝其他女友而分手.

我当然钦佩她的原则. 但事实上,有很多女孩会向他投怀送抱 – 年薪$8m 的球员—他在2017年与纳什维尔掠夺者队签订了一份8年/$6,400万美元的合同. 觉得朋友的侄女和他很般配 … 只能叹息

FLA Live Arena: Panthers

FLA Live Arena
1 Panther Pkwy,
Sunrise, FL 33323

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Panthers 6-2 and we’re happy: Islanders is fighting the playoff spot with the Panthers.

The Florida Panthers is based in the Miami metropolitan area / Fort Lauderdale, who competes in the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference. They initially played their home games at Miami Arena before moving to the FLA Live Arena in 1998.

Toronto team scored shortly after starting … and they lead till the end. There are so many Canadians …

Miami Vice, 2023

Four sport events in a week, in and around Miami:

  1. World Baseball Classic: US lost the final
  2. Miami Open day 1
  3. Ice hockey Toronto Leafs vs Panthers: 6-2
  4. Mets’ training day: 4-4, a tie

Tampa has a few pro teams that are winning:

  • Buccaneers: 2 Super Bowls, 2002 and 2020 with the aging QB Tom Brady
  • Lightning: 3 Stanley Cups, 2003/4, 1019/20 and 2020/1
  • Rays (AL): pennants in 2008 and 2020

I think the best way to rise a city’s profile, is to have a winning pro team, imho.

Wild v Lightning 4-2 @ Amalie Arena

401 Channelside Dr.
Tampa, FL 33602

Tampa Bay Lightning beat Minnesota Wild 4 to 2, the last goal was empty net. The first period was bit boring, no goal, except a fight.

Leafs vs Lightning

We parked on the street, because the jam goes into the stadium parking. It might have been the most expensive street parking I’ve done: $12.85

When we dined at Watervue Grille @ Harbour Island in 2021, saw the Amalie Arena is across the Bay or Garrison Channel – here we come, finally -:)

The first fight 😂 0:0 after the first period.

Hoping for more actions 😊

The bathroom run: After the first period, I went to the bathroom. There were two lines, one was visibly shorter. So I investigated.

The reason? The shorter line was formed at the Exit.

So ballllsie – the Floridians go in both ways? Are you kidding me??? We kind of follow the rules back north, even in New York we don’t this shxt bec I don’t remember that I never ever went to the other side to remind the ladies that IS the exit!! lol…

This facility is Tampa Bay Lightning practice rink – they won the Stanley Cup in 2004, 202 and 2021. One big difference is, it has a bar on site.

One punch, banned for life

I got the news that Tampa Bay Lightning had defeated New York Rangers in Game 6 (best of 7), 2:1 at the Garden as soon as I got out of the concert. It’s their 3rd year in a row into the Stanley Cups playoff. They have won the last two, 2020 and 2021.

A short video soon made the run on the internet: a Rangers’ fan (James Anastasio, 1993) in a red jersey sucker pouched a Lightning fan in blue after the game. The result came swiftly, and severely: he’s charged with two counts of assault and disorderly conduct and harassments by the police, and banned for life at the Garden.

In contrast, Tangshan bbq restaurant’s brawl was multiple men on one woman, and no one dared to stop the men.

Man on man
One punch 🤜
Banned for life

啥黑社会 白社会的
是什么样的社会 容忍 姑息男人不仅打女人 还群殴一女人?
没有人敢去阻止 只能说明更严重的问题

The fight strap

There was a movie named Fight Club (1999) with Brad Pitt and Ed Norton. In ice hockey, there is fight strap: a white elastic band attachment to the back bottom of NHL jersey. It measures 8.5″ x 1.5″, attaches to the pant, to prevent being pull off or cover their heads during a fight -:). Evidently, fighting is part of the game in NHL.

#79 Alexei Yashin (1973-) is one of popular players on Islanders’ team. He dated Carol Alt (1960-), a model.

What to do when you’ve too many gears – rackets, or team jerseys? Selling them isn’t a bad idea. The orange color jersey sold for $40.

Lake Morey, VT – pond hockey

After skipping in 2021, and a postponement, the pond hockey tournament is finally underway this weekend. Whiskey Jack Daniel’s is a prominent sponsor. The local news WCAX in Fairlee has a segment on them.

Friday and Saturday’s weather is cloudy and pretty nasty. Sunday is a better day, sunny and mild.

UBS Arena, NY Islanders’ new home

2400 Hempstead Turnpike
Elmont, NY 11003

2021.12.10, Genesis concert

It has a sticker price of $1.5 billion, opens for business on Nov 20, 2021, Empire State Building is putting on the colors to celebrate. As a side note, Islanders has not yet to win a home game (as of Dec 12, 2021).

Nov 20, 2021

Our first venture there, December 10, 2021 for Genesis concert. ⇓ There seems four entrances: three are for special guests/corp sponsors, the privilege few. Dime (Savings Bank) Club, Amex, etc. The main gate for us, is next to the bar, Belmont Hall. The seats are comfortable.


The food courts look substantial. Next time I think I’ll skip the Belmont Hall, head to the food courts/markets directly. There is a Chinese booth, MoGu Modern Chinese Kitchen. One of the items they sell is “air baked popcorn wontons’ which uses air fryer. A staff is doing the explaining, which I think is less effective than giving out samples. Ok, what do I know.

新球场虽然还没有完全竣工 但是已开始使用了. 比以前的好很多… 但岛人直到目前尚未赢一场 😂 不知是不是王嘉廉下了诅咒🤪
球场里的东西花样多也好吃过酒吧里的. 居然看到一家中餐 用 air fryer 炸混沌. 有个男人在解释 – 不如送些品尝 会不会更有效?
自从大麻合法后 质量明显的提高了好多 闻起来香香的 😁
