|Technical hockey loophole + further Chaulky flashbacks (Textiloma continuation)
10 May 2020> Last night we were watching a hockey game + there was only a few seconds left + the team that was down by 1 had 3 players swooping in on the net full speed from diffrent angles, but rather than attempt a shot on goal they exploited a little-known rule where if 3 players placed pucks at the exact same time in these 3 spots of a diamond design right in front of the goal then they would win:
We thought this was ridiculous cuz 1st of all if the 3 players were able to simultaneously place 3 pucks in circles the size of the pucks they could have easily scored the conventional way (hitting it into the net), tho the goalie was not expecting them to do this, so there was the element of souprize. We was also bothered by the lack of symmetry, how it was 3 out of the 4 corners + in our mind would have been more of an elegant loophole if it was a triangle... mind u, in reality don't think we've ever watched an entire hockey game. Not that we don't like hockey, there's just sumping unsettling about it, like if we was the dude w/ the puck we would just want to get rid of it quick as possible before we got body slammed. And it's also hard to keep your eye on the puck. It wasn't til they showed it close up in slo-mo on instant replay that we could see the 3-pucks in the diamond.
A few days ago his RLS roomate also sent us this drawing Kevin did in high school:
We din't know this guy so well, but seeing his name triggered a memary we had a few years later at a Circle Jerks show in SF circa 1984-5 + we thought we saw him standing on stage w/ Nicholas Cage + we asked him if this could of possibly been true + ends up he was a childhood friend of Nick + also friends w/ Keith Morris so probly was. Small world.
