Go Original Six!

birds-go-hawks


OK. Things don’t look super exciting for Original 6 in the pursuit of the Stanley Cup so far.


Montreal, Toronto and Boston were out before it even started.


Detroit is down 1:3 to Tampa.


New York Rangers vs Pittsburgh 1:2.


Chicago vs. St. Louis 1:2.


Hm.


Original Six Golf Tournament doesn’t sound inspiring for hockey historians.


Lets go, Hawks!


Go Original Six!

Birds Infographics: The Epaulets Insignia

corporal


Have you ever watched the Red-Winged Blackbirds?


Their males are loud and glossy broad-shouldered warriors with distinct red-and-yellow shoulder badges.  These badges are also called “epaulets”. They signify the strength and importance of the  Red-Winged Blackbirds.


We did a study of the spicy and concluded that male Red-Winged Blackbirds actually patterned the ranking by the DOD in their epaulets gear.


For example, what rank do you think the bird on the cover picture has?


Amazing infographics of mother nature, isn’t it? :-)
