Hockey Hall of Fame
Inductions were today. Here’s
Our take, in haiku.

Dominik Hasek

Flopping, contorting
Anything to make the save.
Don’t sweat the technique.

Peter Forsberg

Skill, strength, injuries
And one Swedish postage stamp
That haunts Corey Hirsch.

Mike Modano

Simply the finest
Scorer ever to be born
In the USA.

Rob Blake

Famously humble
With a mean shot from the point
And meaner hip check.

Pat Burns

Tough cop turned great coach
Posthumously inducted.
It’s about damn time.

Bill McCreary

A ref we respect
For how he did his job, sure,
But mainly that ‘stache!

Kevin Allen

Terrific writer
Sharp hockey historian
All-around good guy.

 

(Technically, writers
Are not inductees. Kevin
Still gets a plaque, though.)
