There’s a long, hilarious tradition of hockey enforcers parlaying their popularity to something that transcends the game. Often it’s something cheesy. Think Dan Carcillo’s radio show, Paul Bissonnette’s Twitter feed, or Tiger Williams’ cookbook.
While the cover of “Done Like Dinner” is priceless, legendary Broad Street Bullies tough guy Dave Schultz takes the cake – er, the cheese – with his original recording of “Penalty Box,” an ode to his home away from home. Recorded in 1977, it somehow didn’t reach any of the Billboard charts despite such timeless lyrics as “Love is like an ice hockey game/Sometimes it can be rough/Girl, you’ve got me so all aflame/I never never get enough.”
It did reach YouTube, which is all we care about. Enjoy:

What about a Stanley Cup?
Turns out that’s the million-dollar, well make that the $64 million, … awww, what the hell – make that the $189 million question they’ve been asking about the struggling Buffalo Sabres since the start of the NHL season.
OK, “struggling” is sort of a misrepresentation. Sort of. At 12-8-0, the Sabres are still tied atop the NHL’s Northeast Division with the Boston Bruins (whom they will face in an epic rematch Wednesday night) and fifth in the Eastern Conference.
