To answer the question of what lineup I used in Ice Hockey
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.
Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are looking to trade solutions with other folks, be sure to shoot me an email if interested.
how did armenians sneak onto the vineyard? for shame.
In retrospect, I think the reason the skinnies were so valuable was due to the difficulty in controlling them. With the other positions, your opponent could predict where you were going and try to chase you down. With the skinnies, neither player really knew what would happen and this ultimately led to dawn of the “skinny falls into goalie” goal — when the puck somewhat accidentally squirted past the goalie, leaving fans, players and coaches stunned
