America, land of democracy. To prove that every vote counts, not just the people running the place:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TAYLOR HALL.
(That sound you hear is Amanda and Jess crashing to the floor.)
Since Taylor’s living and playing in the US, his 21st birthday is a big deal. We hope he makes good decisions, or documents everything on social media.
If you focus all your energy on something in a sci-fi movie, you can move it with your mind. If you focused the combined energy of this blog in the last three weeks, you could float yourself the Oklahoma City Barons. It seems only fitting that Taylor makes this blog by popular demand.
Taylor’s off IR for that shoulder injury and scored 38 seconds into his first game as a Baron on November 2. He also took a late-game 5-minute major + match penalty for a check to the head. The penalty was reversed and Taylor was not suspended. He has 3 goals and 1 assist in 5 games for the Barons.
If the NHL ever comes back, Taylor will start the 2013 season on a 7-year, $42 million contract. That’ll fill those seats. Selected #1 overall back in 2010, he has a career 49G and 46A in 126 games over two seasons with the Oilers.
He’s also part of our favorite present day boy band:
They’re even well-respected by other musicians, such as Snoop Dogg.
When he’s not playing hockey, Hallsy and his Barons teammates ride their bikes around Oklahoma City. BIKES. I know Middle America isn’t the healthiest place on Earth, but I find it hard to believe the fangirls can’t run faster than he can pedal.
Taylor’s a hit on Twitter (@hallsy04) – seriously, he’s so sassy he should blog for us. We don’t care if he can’t spell. He’s also on Instagram.
You can follow his Movember, um… progress.
Things around here have been quite heated in the Eberle vs. Hall Dream Date Debate. While Chuck and I agree (gasp) that we’re Team Eberle, we are beginning to see what you see when you see this:
And okay, this:
So… new life plan, anybody? We hear the cost of living is really reasonable in Oklahoma City (with money left over for
sock puppets arm warmers).
