C’mon Son!

This weekend featured Jim Slater, shorthanded, flipping the puck over Chris Pronger (essentially passing to himself) then putting in the goal. I freaked out, because it was the Jets, because it was SHORTHANDED, and because it was one of the coolest things I’ve seen in my first month as a hockey fan. So, I started thinking about other pass-to-yourself-and-score situations. And Kobe sprang to mind. What do you think, whose do you like better?  Let us know in the comments section.

  1. Jim Slater’s was way more impressive. He actually had to overcome a technical imposition (offside) to continue attacking and he was short handed in a game that traditionally depends more on team play than basketball.

    Plus, Kobe caught the defense completely off-guard with a trick move then finished up with a high percentage shot.

    This blog continues to prove to me Hockey > Basketball.

    This is a nice one, but the best i’ve seen is Ovechkin banking it off the boards, spinning to beat the defender and putting it in while falling down… hockey>basketball…

    Bryant is unequivocally the superior athlete in their respective sports, but it takes a greater deal of skill to put on a show with skates and a wooden stick; for the same reasons and others such as a more open playing field, there are still greater possibilities to create amazing plays.

    That’s why I love hockey more than any other sport
