T.J. Oshie Misses Practice, Launches St. Louis Blues Twitter Meme

As discussed on St. Louis Game Time, Blues folk hero T.J. Oshie recently caused a minor to moderate kerfuffle by missing practice with an "unexcused" absence yesterday morning. The Blues haven't yet decided how they'll deal with the matter, but Cam Janssen has his own ideas, suggesting that "the boys are pissed at him... the older guys will sit down with him, we'll talk to him and we'll be sure it doesn't happen again. There'll be a big, big fine coming. I'm sure he'll be paying for our drinks at the year-end party. And that'll be that."

Meanwhile, it didn't quite make Trending Topics—unlike that Jackie Chan death hoax—but Blues fans dealt with their hero's defection by launching a #whereisoshie hashtag on Twitter, which I highly recommend you follow. If either of these is true, for instance, he'll probably be able to skate by without a suspension—

CrossCheckRaise: #WhereIsOshie ... Was tricked into a rocketship, then blasted off into space, where he's forced to watch cheesy movies & Wild-Preds games.

Oarboar: #WhereIsOshie Missed practice because he was battling both the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus.

On the other hand, he'll have to deal with Cam Janssen if it's one of these, much as I like the idea of him recreating the first one—

CrossCheckRaise: #WhereIsOshie ... Was gonna play hooky all day, hit a parade, find a ballgame... But then his buddy showed up in a friggin Red Wings jersey

BluesMay: #WhereIsOshie...was given a private tour of Anheiser Busch yesterday and hasn't been seen since the bottling room.
