RIP Crotch Bang

October 26, 2007

So…after instituting the Crotch Bang on my blog the Preds went on to lose six games in a row. That was brought up to me by Hockeybuzz user ‘themax’:

notice how the Preds have fallen apart since you introduced this bizarrely gay “crotch bang” phrase into your blogs? You’ve cursed them. Try writing a blog w/o it and I think you’ll be surprised by the results.

So like any good superstitious hockey fan I took his advice and did away with the ol crotch bang to test his theory. Well…after a well played 3-0 win over the Atlanta Thrashers I am happy to announce that the crotch bang is officially dead!

More on the game tomorrow…but props to Dan Ellis for earning a shutout (in his second career start), Tootoo for a solid game, Smithson for being everywhere tonight and for Kevin Klein looking like the second coming of Bobby Orr on his set up to Tootoo.

Zidlicky was scratched…wondering if there is a chance he is on the trade block or if Trotz was trying a different D -line up?



  1. Thank goodness! (for the crotch-bang leaving and the Preds winning)

    and uh…it was 3-0 🙂

  2. We all must slavishly adhere to superstition.

    So far this season the Preds have an unbroken win streak when the Fat Family listens to Bowling for Soup on the way to a home game.

    We’ll ride it until it fails.

  3. Paul – I am so embarrassed…you are right…it was 3-0…how could I forget Scott “I play with energy but often take bad penalties” Nichol’s empty netter!
