Apparently puck art is a thing and it has officially become our favourite type of artistry. I mean, what better way to show how creative you are than by stacking the pucks in all sorts of awesome shapes and sizes before pre-game warm-ups. If you're a trainer looking to spice up your puck stacking, you've come to the right place.
Here are some of our favourites that you guys have sent us and if you've got more send us some pictures on twitter, @BarDown.
There's high leg kicks and then there's this Murray State college pitcher's leg kick, which blows every other leg kick out of the water. John Lollar's leg kick makes a mockery of all leg kicks previous to it by rising so high that it looks physically painful. Imagine standing in the batter's box and the pitcher throws his foot over his head like that, no chance you're swinging at the first pitch just out of pure shock.
It does make for a great picture though.
If you happen to be catching the highlights of Tuesday night's game between the Arizona Coyotes and Anaheim Ducks, and you notice a lot of Rider Green in the seats, no need to rub your eyes because it's exactly what it looks like. The Coyotes decided to hold a special "Rider Day" where 500 Rider fans get to meet receiver Chris Getzlaf at a pre-party and then get to head down to ice level after the game and take a picture at centre ice.
And if you're wondering, it's about a 25 hour drive from Regina to Glendale.
One of the most talked about ads from Super Bowl Sunday was Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign, which made an effort to change the context in which the term “like a girl” is used. They’ve now made their sequel ad to the #LikeAGirl campaign, which stars American Olympian Hilary Knight and features girls playing different sports, like girls. Pretty cool campaign that we’re really into.
And here’s the original ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
In “The Golf Club” on the PS4, gamers have the opportunity to do more than just hit the ball around the links. Sure, it’s fun to get birdies and drive the ball as far as you can, but when you get bored of that, you can go around killing deer. Yup, you heard that right! Obviously, this was not the intention of the game developers, but glitches get into the games all the time, and this one happens to be pretty unique, albeit kind of dark.
And since we love video game glitches so much, make sure to check out some of our favourite ones HERE.

Former NHL coach Marc Crawford is currently coaching in National League A, which is the top-tier of the two tiered Swiss Hockey League System. Crawford, who coaches the ZSC Lions, who are based out of Zurich and happen to be the defending champions, went off on the opposing coach during the game. The other coach has apparently starred in some movies, so Crawford was shouting, “Hollywood!” at him repeatedly.
The video is very NSFW, so we can’t show you here, as there’s way too much swearing, but if you’re okay with that, you can find the video in the link below.
How do you feel about that Swiss League championship, Marc?
We’ve got ourselves another minor league brawl here, this one between Midget teams, the AA Rochester Rattlers and the AAA Motor City Chiefs. The two Michigan sides squared off in a pretty nasty line brawl after each team shot the puck at each other’s coaches. Pretty insane stuff and always dangerous when the coaches have to worry about taking a puck to the head.

In overtime of this Lokomotiv Yaroslavl versus Dynamo Moskva KHL game, goaltender Alexander Lazushin pulls one of the bigger fails we've seen a goaltender make. On a weak Daniil Apalkov shot from just over the blue line, Lazushin pops the puck up into the air and over his head into the net.
Not only was it a big time fail, but in overtime no less... we feel your pain, Lazushin. We truly feel your pain.
