This guy didn’t kneel during The National Anthem, he painted.

The Toledo Walleye invited artist Joe Everson to perform The National Anthem before Saturday’s home game against the Brampton Beast. Watch what followed:

This is Bob Ross meets patriotism meets hockey. It is amazing!

No matter how many renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner you’ve seen as a sports fan, there’s a good chance you’ve never witnessed an anthem like the one before an ECHL game this weekend.

The Toledo Walleye invited artist Joe Everson to perform the national anthem before Saturday’s home game against the Brampton Beast, and he brought a unique twist to the duty that not many could pull off. Everson is more a visual artist than of the recording variety, so his singing was accompanied by a live canvas painting performance that left fans captivated.

While it wasn’t quite clear what exactly Everson was painting at the start, his grand finale was well worth the wait.


Here’s the final product:

New Wine From Walmart

Some Walmart customers soon will be able to sample a new discount item: Walmart’s own brand of wine. The world’s largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of Modesto, California, to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range. Thought you would like to be first in line to buy some!

“While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine,” said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. She said: “The right name is important.”

So, here we go–the top 12 suggested names for Wal-Mart Wine:

12. Chateau Traileur Parc

11. White Trashfindel

10. Big Red Gulp

9. Grape Expectations

8. Domaine Wal-Mart “Merde du Pays”

7. NASCARbernet

6. Chef Boyardeaux

5. Peanut Noir

4. Chateau des Moines

3. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Vinegar!

2. World Championship Riesling

And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine

1. Nasti Spumante

The beauty of Walmart wine is that it can be served with white meat (possum) and red meat (squirrel).

Rubber Chicken Mr. Peterson, a tourist from Toronto, arrived in Barbados. In an airport taxi cab, Peterson asked the driver, “Say, is this really a healthful place?”

“It sure is,” the cabby replied. “When I arrived here I couldn’t say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn’t have the strength to walk across a room, and I had to be lifted out of bed.”

“That’s wonderful!” said the tourist, “How long have you been here?”

“I was born here.”
