Club hockey is the best hockey

Because I'm not about to discuss last night's Frozen Four semifinal, a game North Dakota would have, should have won if not for head ref Matt Shegos and his whistle happy shit. But I will speak no more of that game here. I'd rather talk about University of Kentucky Hockey. Now this is a team I can get behind. Kentucky is not a D-I team, it's not even a D-III team. It's a Division II Club team (i.e. not a even D-I club team). Club hockey means that most of the players are pretty bad and they drink a lot of beer, etc. I think we can imagine what club hockey in Kentucky is like. However, it seems the UK team has something special going on.

You can see in the pic above, that's Tara Conner, last year's Miss USA. (Although, I think she was reprimanded by Donnie Trump for being drunk and slutty.) In any case, she's wearing her tiara (note: her tiara is not unlike the one Little PMB would get for winning the Lady Byng Trophy...I'm told.). She's also wearing a hockey jersey minus her pants - I'm a big fan of this look. Honestly, who isn't?

The big question here is how in the hell the Kentucky club hockey team managed to get Miss USA on their poster. If you look closely at the poster, you'll see that this is a team whose home games start at midnight. My guess is that their big rivalry game is against Tennessee. Remember this is hockey, not basketball or football. I'm sure there's nothing quite like the Kentucky/Tennessee club hockey midnight. Seriously, I'm certain there's nothing like it - anywhere.

But the question remains, how is Miss USA on this poster? Is she just a really big fan of Kentucky club hockey? As it turns out, lots of hot girls are really big fans of UK club hockey, (particularly Ashley Judd in 1998-99!). This is just one reason why hockey is great.

So, way to go Kentucky club hockey! You obviously know how to market your team and your women, even if you don't know how to skate or shoot or the rules of the game in general. Oh and also, Matt Shegos you can suck it, you ruined my week.

Wally, you novice. UK's club hockey team has been getting attractive Kentucky girls/UK alums to appear on their posters every year in nothing but a hockey jersey. Ashley Judd was the first. I'm not sure if its still true, but back when I lived there, the only ice time they could get was at midnight on Fridays at the decrepid Lexington Ice Center, and, as you might expect, it was a pretty wild time.

I got a little too eager and posted before I read the whole thing. Anyway, Tara Conner is from KY, that's why she's on the poster.

The coupling of "KY" and "Tara Conner" in the same sentence just unleashed about 500 easy jokes in my mind.
