Ryan "Gosling"

7:54 AM

Yesterday I was reading through Banksy's book "Wall and Piece" for some work-related research (which makes it a pretty hip day at the office) and now I can't stop thinking about it. If you don't know, Banksy is a graffiti artist that is famous (or infamous?) for his often-thought-provoking street art. I don't endorse vandalism or anything, but it's a fun book to look through. And I couldn't help but think about Banksy's "legacy" as I was looking though it...how has he become a worldwide phenomenon using graffiti?! I admire him for making up his own "career" and mainly for being so, so creative. Personally, I'm not looking to be a law-breaking-graffiti-vandal any time soon, but I'd like to think a tiny bit outside the box sometimes. I don't know what that looks like, but I wish my art had more direction, or at least a bigger scope. I wish I did more with it, but I don't know what...Maybe graffiti murals? 

Well, I guess now's as good a time as any to introduce you to this:
Ryan Gosling, dressed up as water fowl.
This is my legacy. This is what I have to show for myself.
But that's okay. Because I giggle every time I look at it. Why does he look like such a sad little gosling?
Probably because he's not wearing pants. I'd be sad, too.

  2. It’s easy to forget now, but the Wings lost 421 man-games to injury last season. Stephen Weiss missed 56. Darren Helm missed 40. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg each missed 37. 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. In the second half of the season, the Wings played largely without two of the best two-way players in new nike nfl jerseys hockey. Datsyuk played 10 games after Jan. 1. 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.
