The 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship was the 75th IIHF World Championship and took place from April 29-May 15 in Slovakia.

Team USA wore one set of 26 white jerseys during the tournament. Twenty-five of these jerseys, including one worn by backup goalie Jack Campbell, is now up for bid. The jersey worn by Mark Fayne was donated by USA Hockey to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The auction ends Thursday, July 7, at 9 pm ET. The five-minute rule applies to each auction.

These jerseys were manufactured by Nike. Each jersey was barcoded before the tournament. The set of jerseys was collected after each game by Team USA’s equipment staff. Each jersey has been security-tagged with an individually serial-numbered USA Hockey-MeiGray Authentication Program inventory tag.

The U.S. World Championship Men’s Team wore this set of white jerseys in four games:
April 30, 2011 5-1 win over Austria at the Steel Arena in Kosice.

This has been a really fun party Daddy!


Nude Recreation Week started yesterday. (How did I miss that one?).


MINNEAPOLIS -- Early in Monday's game, the Rays were hitting the ball hard, and it looked as though they would have their way with Twins lefty Brian Duensing.
But in the fifth, Duensing took control and cruised for his second career shutout. He shut down the Rays throughout the game but was especially impressive late in the Rays' 7-0 loss to the Twins at Target Field.

Today is Bikini Day.

SAN FRANCISCO --  Pablo Sandoval drilled a rare two-run blast into McCovey Cove on Independence Day, but it wasn't enough to overcome a mediocre start by Tim Lincecum and free the rest of the Giants from their offensive woes at home.
After averaging more than six runs per game on last week's seven-game road swing, the Giants returned to their old ways at the plate Monday. San Francisco managed only six hits, three of them by Sandoval, and fell, 5-3, to San Diego in AT&T Park.
