Clearance Rack Jock Straps: Hockey Players Guide to Finding A+ Deals

Alright Ked boss asked me kick off a new segment and hopefully you guys will like it. Some of you may or may not know that I am an absolute nerd when it comes to hockey equipment. There’s two things that get me stiff in life, a hard clapper from the top of the umbrella that goes right into my forwards gut, and some fresh new fucking gear. Maybe down the road we will have a Howie tutorial video of “how to” piss your forwards off, but until then let’s stick to the gear.

This new weekly(ish) bit will be about a dope deal that I find on the internet. I am going to try to keep it wallet friendly without sacrificing too much on specs and performance. I ain’t got money to waste on gear when you know damn well you need to be dumping money into the bar’s jukebox and hammering the Thong Song and Ignition Remix to set the tone.


You may be thinking to yourself, what the fuck deals you gonna snatch us Cooner?! Well sit back and enjoy boys because I will now comb the sites and save your ass some time, sort of. What will help with this is if you guys get more involved and throw the Morning Skate some requests for me to look into. For example, “Hey Cooner can you take a look at 85 flex sticks for righties, maybe kane curve?” Why yes, my dear dangler, I would love to look into that for you.

Give us some feed back, anything will help me out. I will start this one off with giving you guys a look at the gear I rock.
