Bloodthirsty creatures are real well, maybe not Dracula , and there are trillions of vampires creeping, crawling, swimming, buzzing and even flying among us. Vampires come in a variety of shapes, sizes and species. Gillies owes Mirasty a fight. Rechlicz owes Mirasty a fight.
That's the code, the unwritten order that has governed hockey fighting since just about forever. They know. Everyone knows. There should be blood. Only there isn't. So Cochrane smells a rat. Namely, me. His theory goes like this: Another fight fan, Peatycap, knew I would be in Syracuse to see Mirasty fight.
Peatycap got excited and posted a note on the message boards. Cochrane told him to take it down. Too late. Somebody associated with Albany saw the note and told Rowe, who in turn has ordered his players not to fight Cochrane nods. He's convinced. I'm confused. Two hours ago, I didn't know who Rowe was. Now, apparently, we have some sort of Death Row-Bad Boy records feud going. When I bring this up -- specifically, when I mention how ridiculous this sounds -- Cochrane looks at me with pity, as if I just asked him for subway fare.
You wouldn't believe how many coaches and players read them. To recap: I'm here to see a hockey fight to better grasp what people like Cochrane see in hockey fights, only no one will fight because I'm watching, and I have no idea why this is the case. Nevertheless, I'm supposed to write a story that explains the whole thing or, barring that, at least help you win your goon fantasy league. It was NASA. Four televisions. Four Sony SLV video cassette editors, each of them worth a grand.
Twenty-eight cassette copying machines. A bushel of remotes and one very important piece of plywood he installed in the middle of the basement to keep them from interfering with each other. Everything devoted to Nicky V. Teams used to beam their stuff to 24 satellites in the sky. I'd capture games right off those satellites. Nicky V. No degradation due to copying.
Prior to DVD, as good as this gets. Pixels flicker to life. But 10 years ago, if I had told a hockey-fight collector, 'You can have my master for a season,' they would have flown out here to get it. Before YouTube, before the message boards and the Internet and all things digital and easy, there were guys like Nicky V. The pioneers. The old-school fight fans who devoted countless hours to recording and trading and compiling footage, going from icebox-sized VCRs in the s to standing on the roof in the middle of s ice storms, aiming dishes by hand.
The guys -- and let's be honest, they're all guys -- who spent three months waiting for fight tapes from Philly, then tore open the UPS packages like snakebite victims fumbling for anti-venom. I'd record six hours of news on a Montreal channel, just to see if there were fights, spend the next day fast-forwarding through. It was a full-time job. He drinks two pots of Starbucks a day. We're sitting in the storage room of his home-remodeling construction company in Stamford, Conn. Plastic trash bins are stacked by the half dozen against the wall. A metal shelf teems with tubs of Sheetrock joint compound.
He doesn't collect and trade fight footage like he used to. But he remains one of the most knowledgeable fans in the hobby, a walking database of who punched whom in the jaw, and why. On the screen is a brawl. A bench-clearer, the kind hockey doesn't make anymore. Rangers versus Flyers, late s. Frank Beaton and Mel Bridgman go toe-to-toe. Some two dozen gloves and half as many sticks are scattered like dead cockroaches. The officials separate the teams.
Nick Fotiu jumps out of the penalty box to fight Jim Cunningham for the second time. The Flyers gang up on Fotiu. A new scrum erupts. Ron Duguay is bleeding. They pan the crowd, you see the hairstyles, the big plaid shirts. I just like this era. He scans his shelf. I gotta whip that out for you! Why is it so popular with fans?
Do NHL players watch fight tapes in their free time? The Melrose Line. His early tapes were terrible -- 20 seconds of players skating around, fights joined halfway through. But they quickly improved. He developed proteges in New York and Arizona, teaching them to do the same. He wouldn't just find one contact for footage in St. Louis -- he'd find three, "so no one could f up a fight.
At his peak, Nicky V. Come home from work. Call his contacts. Pop in tapes at 7 p. Change the tapes at 9. Get back on the phone, figure out the late games. Make a pot of coffee. Repeat the next night. On Saturdays, he might go to a bar -- a nearby bar, so he could come home, make the 9 o'clock switch and head back out.
You get corns on your feet. I would stand up and my back would hurt. That was then. He married eight years ago, and his wife told him he could keep taping, with one condition: no more late-night phone calls. Next came his son. So Nicky V. Learned to live with YouTube's low-res footage. These days, he wakes up at a. He still loves the stories, the arguments, the sense of community.
One guy on there just got engaged. And why not? They've been talking hockey fights, and life, for almost 20 years. Driving to those New York construction sites, he'll catch hell from Rangers fans. Yet with two words -- "Dale Rolfe," the former Blueshirts defenseman who was infamously beaten up in a Flyers-Rangers playoff game while his frightened teammates did nothing -- he can even the score. There's an understanding among fans, a bond. Every fight fan has a Holy Grail. For Nicky V. He played four seasons in St. Louis and was killed in a motorcycle accident. Just four of his fights are on tape.
But once, supposedly, Gassoff took on Flyers tough guys Paul Holmgren the Flyers' current GM and Bridgman in the same game, and beat both of them into submission. He goes online, hunts for some old scanned magazine photos of Gassoff fighting Holmgren. The images are in faded black and white. None shows an actual punch being thrown. There is just Gassoff's left fist, cocked up by his ear, hanging over a prone Holmgren like Damocles' sword.
You get to see all the fights. But it takes away the imagination. I'm stuck in an airport terminal, watching a Probert fight DVD on my laptop. Fight fans consider him the greatest ever: best record, most feared, knockout power, took punches, never ducked a scrap.
Decent player, too. I figure I can learn something. Twenty minutes in, I'm pumped. Probert battling Dave Richter and Rick Tocchet back-to-back is way more exciting than the neutral-zone trap. I even have a new name for my struggling fantasy squad: Probert Throws Best. Yet after another dozen fights, my adrenaline fades. The beatdowns seem robotic. I feel numb. Wham, bam When I mention my malaise to Posux, a Fried Chicken regular and West Coast editor of a popular men's magazine, he asks me whether I follow hockey. Not really. That's the problem, he says.
You have to know the teams, the rivalries, the personalities, the story lines. It's like a soap opera. In the context of hockey, fights are the straw stirring the drink. In the context of no context -- a fight tape -- they're human cockfights on ice.
Peatycap offers to come along. He gave me the Probert disc. He's 28, works for the federal government and has a master's degree in organizational psychology. He also owns a golden retriever. So I feel safe. We pick a March game between the Caps and Penguins. The two have tangled twice this season. A third bout could decide the NHL's heavyweight championship, at least on the boards:. Laraque is going to have to do something pretty significant while Brashear is on the ice for this fight to happen.
If the Caps or Pens go down by two goals, it should happen. Knowing Brash, he probably figures twice in a season is enough. Winning this game is way more important than his personal fighting rivalry. It is important to us, though. Game day. The Verizon Center scoreboard displays a text message from a fan reading "We want a goalie fight.
Yesterday, Brashear dropped Boston's Shane Hnidy with a glove-on sucker punch, a blow that made the opening montage on "SportsCenter. I check the official game notes. Brashear is in the lineup. We make our way to the lower bowl and take our seats behind the goal. On the other side of the glass, the teams are warming up.
Brashear is 6-foot-2, pounds; Laraque, , In skates and pads, they look even bigger, as if they could park small cars just by picking them up. Then they fight. They're showmen! Where Peatycap is bullish, Hannibal is dismissive. Ready for a letdown. Styles make fights, he says, and the problem with Brashear and Laraque is that they're boring. Dominant, yes, but dull. Both follow the same formula: Lock up opponents with overwhelming strength, land a few hard punches for effect, end brawl.
Do just enough to win without getting hurt, just enough to continue in a line of work in which one lucky punch can leave you unemployed and drinking your meals with a straw. Laraque is an year vet; Brashear is in his 16th season. Neither number is an accident. Fight fans call this "seatbelting," and they find it maddening. They aren't moved by play-it-safe technical prowess. They want Julio Cesar Chavez, bloodied but unbowed, taking 50 punches to deliver They want total abandon, toe-to-toe wars, pulp-faced passion.
What leads to a powder-keg situation? Genuine dislike. A December rematch, however, produced zero fights. Peatycap tells a story. When he was 11, his parents took him and Hannibal to their first hockey game, a Washington-New Jersey contest at the now-demolished Capital Centre in suburban Maryland. Peatycap and Hannibal ran down to the glass, transfixed. So did their mom. Back to this game: three ponytailed girls, none older than 12, sit behind the net. No one curses out Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. A sports product suitable for the Hannah Montana set not to mention sanctimonious sports columnists who liken the league to glorified roller derby.
This means more emphasis on goals, less emphasis on blood. Since the hockey-fighting apex of the s -- "Slap Shot" in theaters, Philadelphia's Stanley Cup-winning Broad Street Bullies in penalty boxes -- rules changes and stiffer penalties have slowly squeezed fisticuffs out of the sport. The NHL's last bench-clearing brawl was in According to unofficial statistics at the Web site dropyourgloves. Teams that used to dress two or more enforcers -- like Detroit with Probert and Joey Kocur, the much-hyped, much-feared "Bruise Brothers" -- now dress none.
The league knows violence still sells tickets -- a study published in the American Journal of Economics and Sociology found a correlation between brawling and attendance, and the Web site hockeyfights. Half of them went like this: 'How dare you, I took my son or daughter to the game and have never been more embarrassed.
I will never go to a game again. Fighting should be outlawed, and Donald Brashear should be suspended for life. What was it like to stare down Jon Mirasty? I love seeing the team stand up for each other. Leonsis laughs. I remember him staying off school, been able to have a bed on the sofa, watch tv and having ice cream because he had a sore throat. The youth leader spoke about our body been like glove, and when you take your hand out of the glove then it's empty, illustrating the soul. He gave another talk about prayer, holding up a telephone which wasn't connected, this made the kids laugh.
The boy went to a safari park with his dad, on one of the days when he was allowed to see him.

She also is good friends with a girl named Holly, who I think is the child of a single mother. At some point, Ellie makes a plan to go see her mom by taking a bus or a train not too sure to go to her mother's apartment in New York. A few things to note: - They have two elderly neighbors who lived together and would give them lemonade.
I've been searching for 2 years now, so it would really mean a lot to me if someone could please give me the name. Thank you so, so much. I read in the 70s what I think was a trilogy of books based in 18th or 19th c Russia. Young boy and girl captured by maurading Moors and treated as slaves. I have a memory of maybe candle or sword in the title and Harem and Eunochs in the story.
Trying to find a book I read back in maybe between The book is about a girl who was murdered by her friends but she doesn't remember. As my memory recalls I believe she wakes up on a "bus" with a bunch of other kids her age who are also dead. The book puts on details about how they died. Everyone looks exactly how they did when they died. The people who commit suicide are silenced Angels. There is a mysterious boy in the back of the "bus"that ends up taking a liking to her and helping her figure out her murder. I don't remember if they were going to a highschool or to the great beyond.
I do remember that she does travel back and visit where she died. And I believe she might of killed her killer at the end? I'm so desperate to get my hands on this book again because I was so young when I read it. There's this book I read 3 years ago. It was quite long. I remember it took place in the summer and it was from a teenage girls point of view. Her father owned a restaurant. Her mother was shot and died in that same restaurant.
One day the girl finds a shoe on the beach Oh yeah this is a maritime story with the foot still inside. Then she starts hearing a voice.
