If only this shirt were a cougar instead of a tiger, I would order it right this second.
And on an ENTIRELY different subject. Really. Forget any parallels to what I just said. I wrote some more on Darcy Kuemper tonight. This time for In Goal Mag.

The guys are obviously enjoying him as much as I am, as he got not one but two slaps on the ass from teammates while talking to us. They've all been there. That first defining moment of one's pro career. It's just one of those things that makes hockey transcendent at times.
To the guy who threw his hat after the Aeros third goal (luckily it didn't make it to the ice), I offer you this.
