Ice Ice Baby

A gallery of some pretty amazing ice sculptures

Pretty funny ad from the Bic Shaver folks. I have sympathetic shrinkage just from watching... (via Colossal art + design)

Scary Ice Hockey Accident
Clint Malarchuk was goalie for the NHL Buffalo Sabres in 1989. During a game against the St. Louis Blues, Steve Tuttle of the Blues and Uwe Krupp of the Sabres became entangled while chasing the puck and crashed into Malarchuk's goal, Tuttle's skate caught Malarchuk on the neck, severing his internal carotid artery.

Thanks to some quick action by the team's trainer, Malarchuk survived the incident, though surgeons needed over 300 stitches to close the wound.
