As preparations for hockey season kick into high gear, hockey Twitter has come alive. In related news, I've started to seriously re-think my commitment to this Twitter feature.
Here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets of the past week:
The Canucks' window may still be open, but that will only lead to a humiliating defenestration.— Whine Country (@whine_country) September 25, 2013
Whine Country has become a staple of this Funniest Tweets thing, which is one of the main reasons I'm reconsidering the whole concept.
Randy Carlyle to meet the media soon. Unless of course he chooses to defuse the situation by shoving his best player out there instead.— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) September 23, 2013

"Black Mama" is what the kids call their nanny. RT @DustinBrown23: Kids name game. Roger seems to be edging out black mama at the moment.— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) September 26, 2013
What in the hell was Dustin Brown talking about in that original tweet?
Okay everyone, bring in the jokes about Canada's Nazi jerseys!
When does Hockey Canada announce final rosters and hold its training kampf?— The Sleeping Giant (@USAbesthockey) September 24, 2013
I can’t tell, do the new Team Canada jerseys still have the fake tie-ups in front or are they going for the one pure lace?— Down Goes Brown (@DownGoesBrown) September 24, 2013
Rather than going for gold, Canada should try to steal the Ark of the Covenant.— Harrison Mooney (@HarrisonMooney) September 24, 2013
Canada should wear those black alternates when they play the US, ensuring the Americans only come out for the third period.— Cam Charron (@camcharron) September 24, 2013
More than winning a gold medal, Team Canada is really hoping to annex Poland.— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) September 24, 2013
Nicely done everybody. I encourage you all to keep working on your material from now until the Olympics begin.
