Stick in Link: Chris Tanev, stone cold killer; Zack Kassian welcomes vengeful Oilers

It’s time for “Stick in Link”, the feature where we just plug in a bunch of stuff written by others! Featuring a smattering of links from around the Smylosphere and beyond every Tuesday and Thursday. Warning: our links are so hyper, they change colour when exposed to heat. (Have something for us to share in the next edition? E-mail us at, tweet us @passittobulis, or just come over and write your link on a pad of paper, I guess.)

Canucks in ugly Christmas sweaters: our ten favourites

The Canucks’ annual Dice and Ice event is always a source of mirth and blog fodder, and this year’s event, held Wednesday night, was no exception. If you haven’t seen the video of the team’s quartet of rookies providing backing vocals for Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You”, for instance, you should probably go ahead and do that.

But the highlight of the evening, in this guy’s opinion, were the ugly Christmas sweaters the Canucks donned for the occasion. A few of the photos made the rounds late last night, thanks to Roberto Luongo and underrated Smylosophere contributor Bure’s Triple Deke.

Weird Crafts: show your Canucks love with garters and pasties

The Tossing of the Garter is one of the oddest wedding traditions in Western culture. Who exactly decided it was a good idea for the groom to go rooting around under his bride’s dress and remove an article of clothing in front of her parents?

And why is the garter then thrown to a whole bunch of single men? I caught the garter at my brother’s wedding and only later realized that it was really weird that I had what was essentially a piece of my sister-in-law’s lingerie. This was somewhat disconcerting.

In any case, if you’re going to participate in this tradition at your own wedding, you may as well go the extra mile and get a quality handmade garter. If you’re a hardcore Canucks fan, and if you’re reading this blog there’s a good chance you are, you can even show your fandom by putting a Canucks logo on your upper thigh, embellished with satin and lace.

How, you ask? The answer, as it usually is when it comes to weird crafts, is Etsy.
