- First, we have Pavelski giving us the Festivus Pole (0:30):
Shootout goals, like tinsel, are distracting.
Consider this your official confirmation: Nobody is happy in Sharksland."
- And finally - The Feats of Strength.

Festivus is officially celebrated tomorrow, December 23rd. But maybe, just maybe, we'll get an early Festivus Miracle - a regulation W over Anaheim.

On a lighter note, today is Repeal Day! For you uneducated troglodites who choose to ignore the lessons of history, the US Government repealed the prohibition on alcohol 74 years ago today. Citizens cast off the shackles of sobriety, walked proudly into their local drinking establishment, then stumbled out 5 hours later, vomitting in the streets and waking up next to a depression-era prostitute who smelled like cheese and poverty.

Happy Repeal Day!
