Denver’s In Town…YAWN

Hey. Check this out. I had no idea...

The Avs are 6-5-1 against Detroit in the Duchene era...

Want to know how your organ-I-zation has reached rock bottom?

It's when a hometown blogger (even a male hyphenated one) says that Matt Duchene, seriously...Matt Duchene, has an "era".

Denver's 8-8-something...it doesn't matter. They're sitting 13th in the West.  In all honesty, it's where their remaining 6 fans deserve to be and it's where baby Jesus wants them to stay.  So stay there they will because they're in the 9th year of a youth movement that has been less than successful.

"Did not qualify" is usually a statement reserved for Blues fans applying to Delta College in the beautiful outskirts of Saginaw, but in this case it's 4 of the last 6 dreary endings to a Dive season.

Ah well. These games used to be fun until Denver started sucking ass on a wonderfully consistent basis. 

Tonite starts a four-game string of games against teams that are pure shit.  8 points would be awesome. 6 would be nifty. 5 would be acceptable. 4 is expected.

How are those lines shaping up, Mike?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

That is what I remembered seeing too - but I didn’t want to call it, because I didn’t see all the games.

At least Babs is liking what he’s seeing.  Maybe Murph should lone his specs to Babs for a couple shifts.

Jack that’s hidden somewhere deep on the high shelf where I only have to go in those desperate moments of dark despair.

Hope there is something behind the Jack, cause I think 8-13-11 is going to make you dig deeper tonight.

MsRedWinger, no offense intended. I have broken every vow I ever took in my life, anyway.

Game’s on TV tonite. Love GameCenter, but there’s nothing like a game on TV.

What’s beautiful about that picture is that both Vernon and Shanny have spotted Patty coming out of his net to get in the action.

Colorado, Edmonton, Columbus, Columbus, Calgary.

10 fat points sitting right there, so desperately needed going into the brutal road games finishing the season.

I can tell already that this is going to be one of those nights where the LB is more entertaining than the game. You bitches are on fire.

Need to find a SAP key for this game. Talking about the 90’s rivalry, announcer for some reason talked about Steve Moore.
