The F Stands For Finger And The Finger Could Really ______ Us All

Thanks to the Emperor for covering me the last few LBs, and thanks to all 19 of you for the patience. January was a slow-moving month on America’s Favorite Carrier and I already told you what February has in store for the weak-hearted Wing fan. I warned you. I told you what kind of pain was on the horizon.

And now it’s here.  Jimmy says it could be two games but then I read it might be 4 weeks until Jimmy said it was more like two weeks he’s hoping because six weeks sucks the worst kind of ass. Seriously. We’re all dead in six weeks if that’s how long Tiberius Howard is out.  Oh, and you want to trade for a backup goalie?

Don’t bother because whoever we get isn’t gonna be good enough to do the job we need done to get what belongs to us.  Baby Jesus, that tiny tadpole of love, adores us but even he can’t guarantee or even decree a Cup if we’re down to a backup goalie some shitbag team was willing to deal in February.  So…it’s James F. Howard or bust, and I’d prefer me some Jimmy if it’s all the same to you.

Transplants. Transplants galore in Gary’s hometown of Phoenix. They’re running amok, paying outrageous sums, drinking cheap beer and laying waste to the women of Glendale, if they’re single and clean…the transplants, that is.

It’s a Live Blog bitches.

Before Homer took the puck to the net, EVERY GODDAM man was on the periphery of the play.  You’re not going to score that way.  Somebody besides Homer needs to grow a pair and get to the dirty areas.

In other news…. Klesla showing the world he is a product of the CBJ farm system.

Hey Mule.  Alright!

on this date in 1940 - Under Admiralty pressure, BBC adopting new rule: small ships sunk by Germans only to be reported once on news, to suggest UK winning sea war.

is there anyway the wings could adapt this idea for the season?

Sticking with the game plan.  Right on schedule…

“I thought they had better jump than we did. I don’t think we came out with as much energy. It took us a couple of periods to get going.”

I did not know this.  Ayds was a diet supressant candy, very popular in the 70’s and early 80’s, that fell out of favor due to, uh, AIDS.  So they decided they needed a new name and came up with….

wait for it…

Diet Ayds.

For some reason the new name did not help sales.
