I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Kari Lehtonen Presents Chuck Norris

Some of the true believers among you probably remember my first article on Kari Lehtonen, the Dallas Stars goalie with all those amazing masks. Well, Lehtonen recently unveiled a brand new face mask adorned with pictures of actor/martial artist/Total Gym endorser Chuck Norris.

Dallas has always known how to make sports about more than sports. Whether it's cheerleaders, ice girls, the largest domed structure on the planet, personalized songs by Pantera, or in this instance, the most interesting face masks in the league, Dallas can really sell their teams. You have to love or hate that, which means they're doing their job --- inspiring people to feel passionately about Dallas teams.

Go Stars!
