Danica.. more like "Spare-ica"
I really could go into an intense tirade, I just don't feel like it. All I know is if I have to see the ESPN highlight of the Schtick-filled "Lady and Gentlemen, start your engines." garbage, I will indeed vomit

Another Star heads north
Jason Zawacki of the Dallas Stars Midget 3A is the latest to find himself a new home in the junior hockey ranks, landing a spot with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL. He will no doubt enjoy the sparkly new Prospera Centre, where the Chiefs call home until next season when they plan to move.
