What did Lego teach Boulerice?

This is a bizarre bit of team-building employed by the Flyers that I missed from last week:
How would you create the model that best represents your team?

"We get some Legos, and we build it," Flyers coach John Stevens said.

Yesterday was Lego day here as the Flyers went through the most important part of their team bonding exercises: discussions about who they are and what they want to be, and then showing that through a Lego model.

"We want the players to take ownership [of the team], and we need their input on who we think they are," Stevens said. "I am sure there is more than just Legos involved. But they are going to build a picture of what we look like."
No wonder these guys need so many timeouts.

I always figured Stevens was in over his head, but now I'm certain of it. He sounds like one of those MBA douchebags that corporate managers hire when they've run out of ideas. You know, those 'visioning' types who charge a million bucks to regurgitate Tony Robbins or Wayne Dyer or some other TV 'preacher.'

Way to think outside the blocks!

It looks like Lego taught him that if you hit something hard enough, it shatters into a bunch of brightly colored plastic pieces that a toddler can throw at the family dog.

That seems to be what my nephew is learning from Duplo blocks, anyway. :)

Thanks god I wasn't drinking anything - the time out comment made me laugh out loud. It hurt too - took a puck off the chest tonight.
