OK, the last post was only a partial success for publishing to my FaceBook timeline, so now I will have two posts in a matter of minutes where previously I have not posted on this blog for months….go figure.
Anyway, here is another YouTube favorite showing the top bloopers from the 2011-12 NHL season. Rather fitting given the 2012-13 season is in lock-out and I foresee little chance of getting it back. I, for your information, am on the players’ side of that negotiation.
I would love to try and skate a Red Bull Crashed Ice course, but my skills on ice are lacking
Check out the latest installment in full (1.5hrs) from the 2012 season that took place in St Paul, Minnesota. There are more videos, including highlights, on various Red Bull YouTube accounts from other Crashed Ice seasons and races, just search YouTube. Also check out the Red Bull Crashed Ice website.
