The Playoffs Are A Thorny Issue

So I'm still optimistic.  The trades could still be filtering in to the league office. Kenny kicked a lot of tires and we all know you don't just kick for the sake of it.  That would be...

...self-flagellating, of course.  

Yes, I've been reading.  Bad Wing fans. Screaming across each other while you type sarcastic words poking fun or even daring to question Saint Kenneth.  At some point I'm going to have time and the hardware to address that. It needs...examination.   

Now though?  It's just a simple live blog bitches.

I feel like this is all my fault and things were going swimmingly until I arrived here and opened my big mouth.

Checkin in late….had a date with my good friend Marty Tini. 

One martini, two at the most, three I’m under the table, for I’m under the hos…....ah never mind.

I see the Doanbag is still employed.

Let the comeback begin.

LGRW!!!!!!

Things weren’t exactly going swimmingly before you got here either.  I guess they just weren’t behind.

I love how FSD stays on the broadcast for a few seconds when a scrum happens instead of going to the scheduled commercial.  NBC would have cut away instantly.

This just in: NBC does horrible hockey coverage.

Posted by Bent from The U.P. on 04/04/13 at 11:27 PM ET

This isn’t an NBC thing.  It’s the difference between a national feed and local.  They have different sponsor/ad obligations.

And let’s not forget the time Maltby scored 50 goals in the Juniors.  It’s all coming together now.

Earlier today Sportsnet in Toronto cut away from a fistfight for a a commercial break.  Isn’t that against The Code?

Except I would think that staying a few seconds to watch a scrum wouldn’t affect that. I would assume the timer wouldn’t start counting until play was over, and I don’t think the play would be considered over.

I fully understood the expression “life sucked out of a building” in the moments following that motherfuching punch in the balls.

And I can’t remember what exactly happened earlier today, I have no chance at truly remembering that night.  After the first overtime, they ran out of water and most non-alcoholic beverages.  If you wanted to drink for the next hour your choices were beer or booze.  Or beer mixed with booze with a side of booze.  That was our agenda.
