The Hungry Ninja

Down the street from my house is a charming little restaurant called "The Hungry Ninja." It's a Chinese food place of sorts, and it's got that certain "hole-in-the-wall" appeal that so many find intriguing.

The food is pretty good and it's also fairly affordable. What really makes this place something special though, is the decor.

They feature quarter machines filled with all kinds of goodies, most notably those Simpson's Mini-Bobble-Heads. But they also have some choice prints hanging delicately on their walls:

#1: Perception.
One of those ever popular motivational posters that reminds us "what you see is not always what you get."



#2 Imagination

This beautiful sunset photo reminds us that "imagination."

And #3...

Reminding us that Nicholas Cage's hair is some sort of extra-terrestrial life form, and that the film was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Song;" A LeAnn Rimes tune called "How Do I Live?" performed by Trisha Yearwood; totally appropriate for an action/thriller flick...

Well done Hungry Ninja...well done.

Some Great Old School Hockey Moments...

Wayne Gretzky was not known for being a tough guy in the NHL, but in this old clip he goes for it with an LA Kings player, and he probably realized during the course of this altercation that he should steer clear of fights and just score goals...


Here, Mario Lemieux scores FIVE goals in one game, but the crazy part is he scores every possible TYPE of goal as he does it: Even strength; Short-handed; Power-Play; Penalty shot; and Empty net. Wow...


On YouTube, this video is simply titled "World's Best Penalty Shot." I couldn't title it any better...


In this clip, Mark Messier of the New York Rangers catches the Dallas Stars' Mike Modano in the head with his shoulder and Modano goes out like a light. He's out cold for a significant amount of time, but as if that's not bad enough, watch what happens at 1:20!!
