This is a True Story about the time I met Sam Rosen. It was in March, right outside the Garden. The Rangers had just beat the Sabres, and I had just drank half my weight in beer…
Yup. It was that great.
This is just not looking right. But I have a plan. From now on, I’m only drawing with my eyes closed. And probably with the help of a lucky beer.
I’m taking a couple days off to move to Buffalo, but coming soon… The Letter E.
Okay whatever… this is a Fail. It looks more like Harry Howell than Reggie Dunlop. Do you have any idea how hard it is to draw Paul Newman’s eyes? They’re just impossibly crazy and beautiful.
Xenophobia is actually kind of funny when it comes from Don Cherry!
Okay, there’s the start of my summer project… A hockey alphabet! I think I’m having waaay too much fun with this.
Thanks to the boneheads at Rangers Report for assistance and inspiration!
A few words about hockey, drawin’s, meat, and beer. And cats.
Although I’m still relatively new to the fabulous world of hockey fandom, I’ve managed to cultivate a pretty strong obsession over the past couple years. And despite living in Ithaca, a town with plenty of hockey bragging rights*, I can’t seem to find anyone to obsess with.
Enter the Zetter Burger! Now I have my own little nest in which to lay my hockey eggs! Will they hatch into squishy, delicious, marshmallowy awesomeness? Or will they be destined to become a mere secondary ingredient in a Nobody Cares omelet?
Since my hockey analsysis runs along the lines of “Khabibulin is a sweet name!” and “Glen Sather is a turd goblin!”… there won’t be much hockey analysis here. Instead I’ll be makin’ drawin’s of things I find hilarious, infuriating, and delicious.
I also plan to make drawin’s about things I like to consume – namely cupcakes, meat and beer. Disclaimer: If you are a vegan who doesn’t know a Ruutu from a Tootoo from a Cheechoo… just back away slowly. (Unless you are Oren… Hi Oren!)
Finally, my two cats might pop in every once in a while to offer their two cents. Or to ask for some Temptations.
