Quick Hits: Day of Reckoning

harrisdunkageFlames Red Wings HockeyBIG haps today, with two important games going down.

Michigan v. Iowa

  • Opening game of the Big Ten Tourney for the Wolverines today, and a win puts a bonafide, stone-cold LOCK on a bid to the dance. Gack it up and you have an increasingly nervous Wolverine nation.
  • If you need stats and ACTUAL analysis of the game, head over to UM Hoops and check out Dylan’s breakdown.
  • Personally, I’m ready for this team to smash down the brick wall that has kept us at bay since the NCAA’s sanctions came down. We’ve pulled ourself out of the grave. It’s time to clean up, put on our Sunday best and go dancin’.

Red Wings vs. Flames

  • So Calgary makes some nice moves at the trade deadline and everyone is ready to crown them the Western Conference Champions. After three straight losses, it might be time to reconsider. Meanwhile, the Wings have gone 3-2 in their last five, but those losses came in a$$ woopin’ fashion from our divisional rivals. Despite recent trends, this one has a genuine playoff feel to it, so look for some big intensity tonight.
  • Check out MLive’s snapshots for some comprehensive news and notes before the game, and mosey on over to the Hockeytown blog for reaction after the game.
  • It would be great to see a highly competitive, intense game and have the Wings win in convincing fashion. See: February 25th vs. Sharks.

Get out the paintbrushes…

Clicking through the blogosphere, I found an interesting contest over at Spawn of MZone. Here are the specifics:

“One of our readers (I think it was GoBlueBob, but the original email is gone. Please let me know if it was you and I will give specific credit) sent us this BO icon image he created using the now popular OBAMICION generator. I tried to create a similar Rich Rodriguez icon during the season using photoshop, but the ease of use of this web-based application is amazing. At this point my mind is buzzing with other fun iconic images and the possibilities are endless. I quickly created a RR NINJA FOOTBALL this morning to test it out. 


As a result, I am now motivated to launch the Spawn of MZone OBAMICON contest for the most original and entertaining reader submitted icon.

1) Send us your images to our email address spawnofmzone (at) gmail dot com
2) T9 and I will gather them up and select 10 finalists from the entries.
3) We will have a vote for the winner.

Entries must be received by midnight on Thursday — I will post the voting poll on Friday. Voting will close out a week later. Winner will claim the title of ICON KING (or QUEEN) OF THE SPAWN NATION and have their winning image posted as part of our sidebar.”

What are you waiting for? Head on over to Spawn and get after it!
