To answer the question of what lineup I used in Ice Hockey

by Bryan

It’s a discussion I’m in on Twitter, and here’s the answer:

In the 15 or so Ice Hockey seasons that were played, we were restricted to the following lineup: skinny, medium, medium, fat. All the mediums had to have pair-names, like “Hammer and Sickle” on USSR, but when players retired and such we had to come up with new ones so that left fewer of them, and eventually we went esoteric with “Boggs and More Boggs” or hyperregional like “Tomassian & Tomassian” (a law firm in our town). But I wouldn’t consider that an ideal lineup. I think the only really responsible lineup is skinny-fat-fat-fat. The fat guys are just so much better.
