Don’t you love Wikipedia?! Upon doing a seemingly mundane Google search for Chris Pronger yesterday, I discovered a massive Google fail. After Wikipedia had cleared out what can only be assumed was fake content directly from Pronger’s page, Google was still using the joke material in its cached version of the site. For those of you who missed my tweets about my major discovery, and never got a chance to see it for yourselves, this is what was coming up as the top Google search for the Flyers new d-man:
Chris Pronger was born in the Gumdrop Forrest in 1782. He is currently living in Haddonfield, New Jersey with his sister/wife and two inbred sons…
My hat is off to this Wiki-prankster! I’ve also decided that my new favourite word is “sister/wife,” and I will try to claim said word by using it as many times as I possibly can in the this post.
Moving on to more serious business, my new weekly column debuted this afternoon at IllegalCurve.com. I am co-writing a new segment called Battle of the Sexes with IC’s own sister/wife, Rusty “Dangles” Parra. Basically, each week Rusty and I will have it out over one relevant hockey issue in a three-round debate. I am currently the only female listed in Illegal Curve’s Columnists section, and I was extremely honoured that such a notable hockey site would approach me to fill the double-X chromosome role on Battle of the Sexes.
Before I send you over to Illegal Curve to check out this week’s installment, I need to warn my fellow Coyotes fans out there that this week’s topic was moving the ’Yotes to Hamilton, and I had the pro-Hammer side. Now before you go crying to your sister/wife, remember that, just like a good lawyer, a master debater (WINK) can argue both sides of the issue. I’m a seventh grade debating champ right here! Someone had to be the bad man, and that someone is me! So, if you can’t handle this week’s column, then don’t click here to read it. You can always check it out next week!
