Rico Fata has a relative working for OLN...

Postby netwolf on Mon Jan 30, 2006 9:29 pm

In the latest "We believe in hockey" ad, you will see not 1, but 2 (yes 2, that's right, 2!) Rico Fata highlights.

One is of him beating someone wide and feeding someone (Straka) for an easy tap in. The other is a low angle view of the goal he scored on Hasek when then Pens beat Detroit 4-3 at home.

Who knew OLN would going to air the complete Rico Fata highlights collection? And my PC-based PVR missed it!! :twisted:

Fata is freakishly fast, if only the hands could communicate as quickly.

How about the Mark Malone highlight goal! Plau Crosby got his Rolling Stone pucker on a couple too.

The Rico Fata 'highlights'? Isn't that more like the 'Rico Fata: The Definitive Play Collection (minus offside rushes)"?

lol at the Sidney Crosby Rolling Stone pucker. well played, sir. I knew what you were talking about as soon as I read it.

To Rico's credit, that goal was pretty sweet.

Wasn't that Fleury's first win in the NHL?

I figured that if he could make Hasek look stupid he could score 20 on the 3rd line with the new rules in place. :oops:

I never had much faith in him to begin with, so meh. He has million dollar speed but ten cent hands.

Just supports Jim's argument on the old board that a good highlight compilation can make anyone look good! :lol:

Anyone who has more than one good play can theoretically have a highlight compilation. Trouble is, some of them are a few minutes worth.. after only 1 season in the league. Others are a few seconds worth after many seasons in the league. :wink:

Also, I didn't get too excited after One Nut scored on the Dominator. Remember, that's the same guy who was 'owned' by one Darius Kasparaitis.

I find it hard to believe Rico can't perform better than Glaciercott or Gilligan

I just saw it again and here's another strange quirk I noticed: on the goal where Fata blows by a defenseman to set up Straka for a tap-in, guess who the defenseman is?

The Penguins' own Eric Cairns. If that's not some kind of cruel joke, I don't know what is...
