Is it October yet?

Hello all! Yes, I still live, just very tired. I fell asleep during Thursday's game, if that gives anyone indication on my exhaustion. Steph has been marvelous in keeping this blog up to date with her super game coverage. Thank you, Steph!

In trying to keep up with the times, we were discussing our nominees for this weeks Cocky Awards and watching the game...and then one of the most spectacular goals of this season happened and we decided that Daniel Briere's goal to bring the game into overtime deserved this week's nomination. 5 seconds left! I think this is one of the few times the tv has heard me when I've been yelling at it. Way to go, Buffalo! Too bad they lost to some other team that I hardly remember the name of. Does anyone have any other people they think have been particularly ballsy or cocky this week?

Some small side notes:

-Apparently some goalie from some team that is hardly worth mentioning was dissing Buffalo, but he says the wings are OK.

-Russian air agrees with Malkin as he's gotten back into the swing of things back in the Homeland. Check him out giving the figurative finger to the Czech bench. Love the little kick, Geno.

-The WBS Pens died in the playoffs against the Hersey Bears. Well, I guess that one team has to win every once in a while.

-Mike Lange might be deserting Pittsburgh. (Get it, deserting, going to Arizona? Ha ha?) In all seriousness, all the arenas in the world and 15 year contracts for Sidney Crosby wouldn't be worth half as much if Lange were to kick over to Coyote-ville. Well, maybe the 15 year Sid contract, which Dave Molinari says probably isn't, and shouldn't, happen. I can understand the financial reasons, for both Sidney and other players, but the value that Crosby holds for the Pens, and Pittsburgh, is larger than money...but people have to be practical (even though he's rolling in money as it is, and will be, for the rest of his life even if he stays in Penguintown). It's going to be a hard decision, he's a huge commodity, and the thought that he could leave to some place like...say...the Rangers (Jagr, I'm looking at you here) is not just a kick in the gut, but more like repeated stabbings with a rusted ice pick coated in salt in the gut that eventually gives you tetanus so that you'll die a horrible, twisted death while watching him come out in blue next to Jagr and Straka and ask god, why, whhhhhhy.

-In other news, Sean Avery is an asswipe. Shocking.

Detroit and the Ducks are on tonight, everyone look for Steph in the seats! Go...Buffalo?

You know Briere takes it in the East, but I totally forgot last night - that Lidstrom blocked shot from Monday's Wings/Sharks game HAS to take it in the west. I still haven't stopped staring in awe at the man ever since.

I'm not going to say it. I will be the bigger person and not rub it in because of that saying about glass houses and stones and pots and kettles and stuff.

So I'm not going to say it.


Oh, my. Excuse me. A bit of an e-cold, I should really take care of that! :D

Elly said...

Steph: Yanno, this is true. Deal!

Biby Cletus: Thanks! :)

CC: Oh no! You sound just terrible, you should really get that looked at before it develops into something truly awful. ;)

CapsChick said...

Yeah, I feel that it's going to get worse as the AHL playoffs progress - odd, really. Apparently the only cure is a Calder Cup...

(Oh, and Steph? I read the first sentence of your comment really fast and thought you said something completely inappropriate, yet really funny, about Briere...just thought I'd share my deranged thoughts with you.)

Elly said...

CC: Ahh, I've heard of this before! My goodness, a Calder Cup? I hope they have long term care sections at your nearest hospital.

Steph said...

CC: I only wish I had, looking back on that now. Can we pretend?
