Underdogs? More Like Maidens With Wrought Iron Souls

Oh yes.  Yes, I did.  For the first time ever, since this blog was created back in 1978, we've welcomed Jim Morrison to a Live Blog.

Actually, that's a lie because we talked about our Killer on the Road.  And if that big bastard comes back during this playoff run, we might trot it out again.

But for now, we're together on a thin raft, floating down a beery river toward a land where hockey doesn't belong and where the Pharoa died.

We need at least one in ridiculous Anaheim.  Game 1 would be preferable, but we'll take 2 if its offered.  Give us both and it will be on whore-style. 

So here we go, into the breach once more.  We'll do nothing to influence a damn thing but what's done will influence us all to an extent that it's indecipherable to anyone but us and the pets we sacrifice.  Kiss your spouses on their lips.  Kiss your bosses on their asses.  Protect your children.  Warn your neighbors and ask baby Jesus to forgive us for the deals we make when we promise we'll exchange anything for just...one...goal.

It's a Live Blog, you bitches.  It's on.  Again.

You have chosen to ignore comments from this member.

ok that’s better.  trolls I can handle.  whatever this idiot is, I don’t think there’s a word for it yet.  calling him a troll gives trolls a bad name.

We all know he posts the thread and only comes back the next day to laugh maniacally at the carnage in the thread that he can then read at his leisure.  He’s the ringmaster, and we’re the freaking circus.

I’m not so sure this “ignore member” feature is a good idea.  When I take a shit, I flush it.  I don’t leave it on the floor and pretend it’s not there.  If you take a shit on the floor, ignore it, then bring guests over, they’re not going to ignore it.  It’s a big pile of shit on your floor.  It looks like shit.  It smells like shit.  It is shit.

New and potentially new members of the 19 will not be aware of the “ignore member” feature.  They’ll see the shit and think “this place is a sewer”.

However, “don’t respond to trolls” is a time tested and proven method.

As the Virgin Mary once said, “Great minds thinks a like mother fucher.”

Make it a high ball.  I’d raise a glass with you any time sir.

A high ball it is.  If you’re anywhere near the VA-NC border, check with Dougie.  He may have an invitation for you.

I was at that game, what a night. If I remember correctly the game itself didn’t begin until 9:30 or so. But it didn’t matter, it was so secondary.

Pretty sure it’s the first and last time such a collection of Who’s Who in hockey will ever occur again under the same roof: Scotty Bowman, Probert, Lidstrom, Don Cherry, Delvechio, Lindsay, me, and of course Stevie Y.

Amazing night.
