Historic Night; No Coffee

TimmiesOne of the world's great coffeemen got tied in the NHL record book on Tuesday, and no, it wasn't Juan Valdez.

The late, great Tim Horton -- yes he played hockey -- is now tied for consecutive games played by a defenseman. On Tuesday, Karlis Skrastins started against the Panthers, marking his 486th consecutive game dating back to Feb. 21, 2000. He can surpass Horton on Thursday when Colorado plays host to Atlanta.

Congrats to Karlis, but can you make a Dutchie? How 'bout a double-double? And can you imagine a commercial where someone wonders whether Karlis Skrastins has bagels? I know I can't, and I have tried. Seriously.
