I have witnessed three of the greatest hockey stories never told. They are truely, 'you had to be there moments' that if witnessed by the media would be Pulitzer prize winning material. I image the headlines of these stories would read like this 1. "Why is Mikael Renberg shaving his balls?" 2. "Ohio State suspends two after brawl with NSYNC." and 3. "Pond Hockey gaffe sets all-time internet 'hits' record." It's this pond hockey gaffe, simply known as 'distinct kicking motion' to the four of us that has inspired the title of my feeble hockey blog. I'm not going to get too much into the 'who what when how and why' of this story, but rest assured, if the camera had been rolling, @osujoe would be world famous. World Famous. It was one of those moments where I was laughing so hard, I seriously almost passed out.
Sure, "Distinct Kicking Motion" is a catchy name for a hockey blog. It sounds gritty and sarcastic. But truly, it's one of the funniest and most memorable moments of my life that would never have happened without hockey, without the good friends I've made from hockey. This is why I chose it as the permanent name to this blog.
And while "Distinct Humping Motion" still makes us giggle, "Distinct Kicking Motion" still makes me laugh for about 45 seconds every time I think about it. Then I think of the goal falling over, and I pee my pants. Again.
