Raccoon Balloon

7:49 AM

You know how I said I've been brainstorming street art for upcoming work projects?
Well, that turned into my bosses (some of them - I sort of have four bosses) trying to convince me to practice graffiti and spray paint stenciling on our office walls. I laughed at them. Of course not! I'm a rule-follower. I'm not going to tag up our office. We went back and forth for a bit, with my bosses cheering for me to spray paint something on the wall and me refusing...partly because the whole thing felt like a trick. Was I reeeeally allowed to spray paint on the wall? Suddenly my question was answered - one of them grabbed the spray paint can and started tagging the wall himself. Like this:
Yeah. That happened. 
But once the wall had been officially "christened" by this little number, I knew they weren't kidding around. They really did want me to paint things on the wall! Open season! And after that "design" was on there, I knew there was nowhere to go but up. So I took the honor of making their "art" a little more Banksy-ish with a raccoon taking responsibility for the tagging. Silly raccoons!
To reach the balloon, I had to precariously balance on a chair propped up on the stairs,
which was the hardest part.

Johan Franzen missed 28. Jonas Gustavsson missed 22. Danny DeKeyser missed 17. Daniel Alfredsson missed 14. Jimmy Howard missed 13. Justin Abdelkader missed 12. The list goes on.Only 27 times did the Wings have both Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the lineup.

Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one. The Wings relied on kids and NFL Jerseys call-ups, particularly Gustav Nyquist, who started the season in the minors because of a logjam and ended up leading the team jerseys store in goals with 28. He scored 23 in 28 games from Jan. 20 to April 2. The Wings also spackled a hole by trading for veteran center David Legwand at the deadline because they didn’t have enough healthy bodies down the middle.
