ICH NHL Picks – Week 1

Sports No Comment

Hmm, everyone seems pretty consistent with their picks for Week 1. Oh wait, that’s just me. For Week 2, I’m shooting for two people making picks. With Center Ice free for 3 weeks I might get into hockey. Except for baseball, football, and regular TV getting in the way.

Top NHL Games Week 3

Sports No Comment

I finally got to watch some hockey this weekend. With all the baseball and college football hockey has fallen behind. Saturday night I thought I was all done with sports, the Cal/Arizona game wasn’t especially close. The Flyers were playing in San Jose. I was able to catch most of the 3rd period, the Flyers went up on a goal by Briere, making it 4-3. A few minutes later, the Sharks tied it on a goal by Setoguchi. In OT Boyle scored for the Sharks and the Flyers remained winless. Was last season a fluke? The Flyers were very streaky last season. They were at the top of the conference and then fell apart needing a few wins at the end of the season just to make the playoffs.

Here are the Top 10 games for this week …

I’m not so sure about the NHL schedulers. The Flyers are currently 8 points back in the division after playing only 1 game. I realize the Rangers played in Europe to start the year, so they should be 2 games up. Still, its just looks ridiculous. I hope they get evened up quickly.

I’m not sure how much hockey coverage you’ll find on here this season. I love the Flyers but I don’t have a ton of time to keep on top of the entire NHL during the regular season. As a start, each week I’ll post the top 10 games according to Ice Cream Helmet. ICH picks are made on the top 10 games each week. You can join in and make picks, or create your own group and pick up to 25 games per week.

NHL Pickem on Ice Cream Helmet

Sports No Comment

This year, for the first time, Ice Cream Helmet will feature Hockey Picks. The standard ICH game will feature 10 games per week to pick from. They are the top 10 rated games as rated by ICH. Each correct pick is worth 1 point. Your rank will go toward your Overall ICH Score.

You can choose to create your own group and have up to 25 games per week available to be picked. Custom groups also feature the option to use wager points as in most other Ice Cream Helmet games. Wager points allow you to get extra points if you are correct on your most confident selections but subtract from your total if you are incorrect.

You can get started now, games for Week 1 are all set to pick.

The first four games of the season take place on Oct. 4th and 5th in Europe. The rest of the league gets started on Oct. 9th. The deadline to make ICH picks is before each individual game, the first being the Flames/Canucks game on Oct. 9th. Custom gropus have the option of having a similar deadline of before each game or having a single weekly deadline before the first game of the week (weeks start on Monday).

Oh, those kids

Can I pull off a themed links day?

LEGO’s 50th Anniversary was this week. Gizmodo posted a bunch of the most popular ones. I was able to find all that made up my LEGO town. Yes, I had a LEGO town, with streets and all. Not many real towns were as lucky as mine to have an airport and shuttle launch pad. The tradeoff? Alien attacks.

Hershey has some candy and apparently its packaging is similar to drugs. Crack, cocaine, and heroin are all mentioned. They are actually Ice Breakers, which I wouldn’t call candy. Anyway, I didn’t think they looked like drugs from looking at them. I don’t think any kids would thought so either, before now. If there was some sort of mixup between this candy and drugs, I think you are buying your candy from the wrong store …

Like perhaps this Pizza Place at Penn State where the most popular pizza was the Marijuana Lovers.He may be 21, but I think he grabbed the drugs instead of the candy. I don’t know where

Shaun White is how old now? Says here he’s 21. I think he’s won about 300 X Games Golds. Here he is pulling off a 1260. If he wasn’t so good at everything, then I’d hate him less.

Most hockey players are kids these days, at least the good ones. Here are some Penguins doing an ad for a car dealership. I respect the dealership for using artistic license and going with the non-English speaking players.

Sick of these kids yet? How many can you beat up?
