am pleased to offer another guest blogger a forum for his creative
writing talents. Today we are once again featuring the mad genius of

THANK GOODNESS FOR HOCKEY
By Matthew Jansky
Today, I read that the Canadians played
the Penguins in the National Hockey League. What a
spectacle that must have been! There are surely millions
of Canadians (and I assume that they all played. The
paper didn't say, "some Canadians play some penguins")
and God knows how many penguins, hundreds of thousands
at least -- Grand Emperor, little North Africans. What an epic contest!
keen intelligence of the Canadians pitted against the
crafty little birds that have survived for eons in the
harshest place on earth. Millions of players, two goals, one puck.
Jesus, where the hell did they play? It must have
been Lake Huron, right? I bet it was Lake Huron.
Anyway, apparently the
penguins won, and I thought, "Shit, this game was over
so soon? They get all these Canadians and penguins on Greyhound
buses (I'm sure that's how they traveled, anything else would be too
expensive) and they're on the road for probably months getting to
Lake Huron, and the game is over in ONE DAY?" I figured the
game would go on for weeks, maybe with snowmobiles involved, subsets
of the defense and offense camping on the ice and in yurt-like
structures, fishing, living off the land, and maybe at night, like the
German and French soldiers in World War I, they make campfires and
declare informal truces, singing songs and doing native dances,
joking about women, before they wake up at dawn to do battle
Anyway, back to work. Great things to be done.
