The Ol' Nine of Hearts
I don't get the reference. What does it mean? Panger likes to use the term, "He pulled the ol' nine of hearts," but I don't understand it. He even had some playing cards with him on tonight's broadcast. Can anyone clarify?

If I were to guess, I'd say it's probably a hearts or euchre reference.

what the nine of hearts means

I am on a bus to Calgary with Darren Pang. A few of you on the Blues Talk forum were wondering what the heck Pang means when he says "Nine of Hearts" on the broadcast, so I asked him . . . here’s what he said:"In Canada, we grew up playing a card game called ‘Euchre.’ The nine of hearts can be a bad card. It’s always been a saying we’ve had in the locker room that when a player gets toe-dragged, deked, burnt, it has always been the nine of hearts for me. In the card game, if trump is spades, then the nine of hearts is useless. If trump is hearts, then the 9 of spades is useless. So I could start using the 9 of spades."

What do you know...I was right lol. My grandfather and I have played a lot of euchre at family get-togethers.

John Kelly looks like a perv sometimes...Add that on top of the quirkiness of Pang and it just gets hilarious. Thank you for the pic spec!

Heh. I just heard Pang make reference to this tonight against the wings and had to look up the reference. This thread was one of the first search results provided. As a euchre player myself, I'd have never put two and two together.

The 9's in Euchre suck. 99% of the time they suck even when they're the same suit as trump.

It's an awesome reference though. Nothing like trumping a trick with a 9.
