Somewhere In The Swamps Of Jersey?  It’s A Live Blog

Me and the Boss would probably have a few philosophical differences if the opportunity presented itself for an in depth confab about social norms, politics and puppies.  But I do dig his music.  And, in keeping with our annual trip to the Garden State?  It’s a Springsteen-influenced LB.

I tried to post a Dater ditty today but the salty Gore had other plans, so I quit.  I’ll keep trying but it’s tough sledding.  Tonite?

Tonite has “trap” written all over it.  Second half of a B/B.  Last place team.  Away.  The Wings penchant to, you know, “play down to the level…”.  A win would be miraculous with those odds stacked against us.

A prediction for player of the game?  Why sure.  A serial killer will prove that he’s no hero, but all the redemption he’s got to offer is under that insane, sociopathic hood of his.  Why Saddam?

Because of this.

Montreal Gazette

Had a chance to watch the Detroit Red Wings live at the Joe this week.  Three quick observations.  1. Todd Bertuzzi is done

Someone read that to Bertuzzi. Read it slow so he understands every word.  And then ball it up and feed it to him with his rat and fetid milk. 

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

Exactly, no way in hell they should be in another WC with all the other teams that haven’t played in one yet.

TEAMS? you mean there are teams playing???  All I’ve heard is that it’s Ovie versus Thid.

Not really random.  I think that every time I see a 27/7 headline or reference to the Winter Classic.

If the weather cooperates and Gary gets his new Jack material, I hope that Rosby and Ovie are both injured.  How on earth would the NHL and NBC spin the “rivalry”?

A marketing stratageythat little gary brought with him from the NBA, and of course, it’s a failure.

Maybe they should consider having one in Canada.  They still play hockey up there I’m told.  Not to mention it is cold(er) this time of year.

Agreed, Ozzie had no chance.

I wonder why they don’t do a WC in NYc with the Rangers and Leafs or something like that.  Or better yet, they should have a WC day with three games between the Original Six teams.

JP Parise…man, Ima feeling old.  Parise, Druin and Goldsworthy.

and this…

Thereafter Parisé retired to Minnesota where he coached and was hockey director at Shattuck-Saint Mary’s, where his son Zach Parise, Sidney Crosby, Jack Johnson and Jonathan Toews played.
