08:31 AM ET 11.29 | Two of hockey's brighter -- Kevin Westgarth went to Princeton, John Scott studied mechanical engineering at Michigan Tech -- and friendlier fellows went toe-to-toe Saturday night, resulting in a bloody face, a broken nose and a few good lines. At 6-foot-8 without skates, Scott is a hulking presence on the ice and easily controlled the battle against Westgarth, who entered the game with 32 penalty minutes. Afterward, Scott revealed his fighting technique. "I'm super tall, I guess," Scott said. "He tried to hit me a couple of times and he couldn't reach me. The height works to my advantage. I have long arms so I'm kind of like a monkey-armed baboon swinging away.

I guess he's not so bright since he decided to go with a guy who's 6 ft 8.

I guess Kevin went to the Princeton just outside of Bug Tussle, Oklahoma.

Don't reporters usually like to say that "intelligent" hockey fans don't like the fights and want to see the league get rid of them? Yet here we have two intelligent PLAYERS fighting. Things that make you go hmm...

What's a blood fight anyways? Is it like a blood feud or a blood oath? Never heard of a blood fight.

I was looking for my keys one day last week and starting to rant and cuss after about 10 minutes. I finally found 'em. I was holding 'em in my right hand. Do you think tying a string to your bumper and the other end to the house's door knob is a good way to find your way home? I'm starting to get worried 'cause the string usually breaks while I'm out! Oh well, it could be worse. I could be a Leaf's fan. (sorry Kinger). :)

Most Leaf fans should welcome dementia, although it has been theorized that they're demented already. :-O
