I've been pretty worked up about how much the refereeing and rule changes have affected college hockey thus far this season. Thankfully, I'm not the only one. Even coach Mike Eaves is upset by the situation - so much so that he sent clips and his comments to the league.       College hockey: Have refs gone overboard in rules emphasis?                 By Todd D.

Ok, let's get this out of the way first. It's the video of Saturday night's fight between UW's Ben Grotting and UM's Patrick White. And it's nuts. We were at the game and everyone was kind of just stunned. You don't fight like this in college. Hell, they don't really allow fighting at all in college. And frankly, I haven't seen a beatdown like this in the pros in awhile, either. There's a lot ...

A kid from the Minnesota State hockey team scored a natural hat trick over the weekend (meaning he scored all 3 goals in a row).Here's the kicker:THEY WERE ALL SHORT-HANDED GOALS.Here's the school's press release.Here's the story that then got picked up by Deadspin.And apparently the Hockey Hall of Fame thinks it's so rare, they asked for the kid's stick and it will be shown the...

Russia is a scary place. Two days ago, Magomed Yevloyev, owner of a news site critical of Russia’s handling of the Ingushetiya region, was fatally shot in the temple while detained by police. The police have confirmed that the proprietor of www.ingushetiya.com was killed by a bullet from an officer's gun while he was being driven into custody – and have claimed it to be an accident.

Jim Cryns on Sports

Our society is enthralled with ceramic images of athletes whose heads bounce and wiggle like a man suffering from chronic seizures. Left fielder Ryan Braun is the latest player to be ridiculed in such a manner. The doll is altogether unimpressive, a slim guy with an enormous cranium holding a bat above his head. His body is slightly contorted in a batter’s stance on a large wheel of cheese. Braun’s name is etched between his legs adjacent to a missing wedge. The bobble-head has eyebrows like a Cro-Magnon, and spindly Barney Fife arms.

Everything in moderation. The way we eat, drink, and even consume sports. It’s critical to how we live our lives, to our ultimate happiness. Going out to dinner with friends and enjoying a bottle of wine. That’s great. Keeping it all in perspective. Going to a ball game, spewing venom at opposing teams and others while swilling and spilling copious amounts of beer upon everyone and everything is probably a little askew. If you find yourself in the latter situation, it may be a good time to take a step back, look at the totality of things, and regain perspective, assess your priorities in life.
