Ahhh… man oh man… Anaheim…. the not so Mighty Ducks, the anger… the hatred… the awful ESPN coverage back in 2003 (oh CMON, you remember it… Gary Thorner botching every name on the Devils roster…. Sergei Bree-land? Oleg Tver-door-sky… Jeff Friesen NO GOAL, THE LIGHT’S NOT ON…puck in the net be damned!!! And how can we ever forget that fast nasty disgusting couple from Anaheim, where the boyfriend knew his woman was the ultimate in fail and told that unhairy mule he was dating that “if the Ducks ever win a Cup I’ll marry you??” (back then the odds on the Red Sox and Cubs breaking their curses was more likely… this was this fuckers way of never having to commit to the land-whale)…. and then they FLUKE their way to the Finals, and the media picks up on the story and they bring TEAM LARDASS INTO NEW JERSEY, take 3-4 seats away from good DEVILS FANS (hell they probably needed a row :p)…. and then as we are about to win OUR CUP…. OUR MOMENT and we have to see this loser have to suck up and propose to that beast??? Oh well, guess the joke’s on him because he’s stuck with that disaster… how’s that working out for ya??)
Oh wow…. it’s almost six years later and I remember EVERY bit of hatred… every SECOND of my Devils fandom being challenged by dickhead ESPN idiocy, Michael Eisner assholery (how did that “we’re in second place parade go fucko??), intolerable ESPN idiocy, and then the DISGRACE of seeing that puffy padded no talent massive overrated butterfly hack goalie crying in his fucking beard as the idiot media in attendance hands him the Conn-solation Symthe trophy in OUR building…. “player most valuable in the playoffs” MY LEFT NUT… he was AWFUL in the Finals, he SUCKED DONKEY BALLS against Dallas, and Mike could have played lying down in the Wild series and gotten three shutouts, that team was DECIMATED with injury and played like 6 games in 9 days including some overtimes too…. so anyway…. fuck Anaheim, the only thing that would have given me more joy to see that puffy padded DOUCHE in net doing the Jiggy Pout each time we scored on him… but he’s too much a pussy to play us ever again!
– the LEGEND…. and I do mean LEGEND of Andy Greene is growing and swelling by leaps, bounds and the bandwagon is swelling faster then the Yankee one!! Get on board!!! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=170038443324 (and that aside he did have two pretty impressive assists last night, and 26 more minutes of goodness… CMON ALL-STAR NOMINATION!!!)
– Speaking of Andy Greene… when Andy Greene passes to David Clarkson even the toe-drag wraparound move equals SCARRR!!! Andy Greene seriously could fix the economy and make me like liberals :p… hell Andy Greene’s so awesome he WILLED the deflection and even made the been playing kinda awful Langenbrunner score!!!!
(and a lil bit more on the Clarkson goal…. as it was happening we were having this discussion:
** Scott Mackie: And a nice discussion of how we can the word clark-a-roonian in a sentence and where t would go…and look a clark-a-roonian toedrag goal!!!
** Steve LaFlamme clark-a-roonie…like a spinaroonie?
** Scott Mackie The clark-a-roonie must be seen to be witnessed!!
– Wow… watching this game.. this Anaheim team is AWFUL… this makes me happy, I should have known this but the Anaheim announcers are total idiots and make the game unwatchable, and this team’s been there what 15 years? And the Kings in the area longer? and they STILL have to hockey 101 and EXPLAIN ICING?? California… such a waste of time!!
– I’d say the penalty kill looked good again, but man the rubber duckies were AWFUL…. and Scott Niedermayer is supposed to be the answer to our offensive issues?? oi to the vey!!!
– one MAJOR annoyance on the night, no I did NOT get to wear my favorite hockey jersey EVER… back story… back in 2003, my GF lived in Dallas… yes she was a Stars fan, but she liked Nieuwendyk and hated the Ducks like I did…. and we both got REALLY sick of the fluke that was JS Guiguere, and we sniped back… we went 50/50 on a Ducks jersey with #35 on it and OVERRATED on the name plate… here was the deal, she got to keep the thing, but I got it sent to me whenever the PondScum came to New Jersey and I get to have fun with my jersey… and go with it… you know how many times I got the jersey?? ONCE… the time before this when they came to town… it was FUN… I enjoyed my jersey… the one time I got to world tour with it…. but that should tell you something… anytime you do something that’s fun… good ol’Heather L. Ramsey has to come in and SQAUSH that fun…”you ruined the mojo of the jersey last time and I ain’t letting you have it”… YOU OWE ME SEVENTY BUCKS THEN BITCH!!!! (and people wonder why I have women issues)…. I mean really… just another promise unkept there, but I’m damn pissed on this one!!!!
– Well some people would think the small crowd last night was a bad sign… I didn’t mind, and it’s NOVEMBER… the Devils never draw shit before Christmas (say what you want this area is too clogged with sports teams)
– boy is the NHL Network behind the curve…. “David Clarkson is growing into a folk hero in New Jersey”… hey mister there is only ONE folk hero in Jersey and it’s ANDY FUCKING GREENE BITCHES … get it right!!!
– Again with the too many on the ice penalties?? REALLY??? Well I think at this point the refs know we’re getting a reputation for it… and now the refs are looking for it a little more… it’s like watching Pronger’s elbows when he comes to town… or measuring butterfly goalies for over-inflated pads and all that good stuff… it just comes with it….
– and it was annoying… with as bad as Hiller looked (and he looked like he rolled out of bed hungover)….and we can’t score AGAIN on the 5 on 3… CMONNNNN….our poor namesake is killing us!!!
– You know it was a bad night for Scott Niedermayer when he has to trip up Rod Pelley!
** Tammie Hamilton: Wonder what Niedermayer child is Mom is voting for now?
(strap in … there was some GOOD ONES last night)
– Three things in one two minute swoop as I grab a kosher hot dog before the game….
1. Gotta love that this own arena’s food voucher cards crash the system (season ticket benefits…. oh fuck yeah!)
2. I spy a sestito jersey, that’s fucking hard to the core man!!
3. Dee is smart enough to not ask me to hold her coat when I eat something with mustard on it! (and speaking of… how about that charming discussion about a series of pornos called “mister beaver” ensues….ah, summer memories!!)
– The greatest speech EVER…. so we had some Duck fans from Anaheim out here in 208 (they actually knew what icing was, I thought that forced you to become King or Shark fans but whatever)….and they had their lil Duck Call with them… oh boy I wasn’t in the mood for this… but I ran into Tasha during the intermissions… and she likes all things Duck… go figure?? So I tell her about the Duck Call…. and she tells me something about this… I’m like “You GOTTA come over and tell them this” (see, setting up the joke)…she comes over… gets introduced… walks over to the dude with the Duck Call… “DUDE, I have an issue with your Duck Call!!!”
he’s all ready for a shouting match…. she’s like… no… wait “Your Duck Call is for a Mallard-style Duck, and that’s totally wrong! When the Ducks came into the league they were based on the White Peking Duck, and their calls sounds LIKE THIS *she makes the sound*…. dude you gotta represent right!!!”…. this could have been one of the most amazing comments EVER….
…. and also in an extra moment of funny…lil Nicky walks up to the Duck fans that same period and starts blowing on a faze kazoo in front of them mocking openly their lil Ducky call!!! Could you only imagine Andy Greene for President and Nicky as his running mate?
– hell it reminds me of an old story from 2003… and yes miss Jersey stealer, I was out with her in LA during the summer of 2003 (and people wonder why I hate LA :p)….. and we went to Disney… and you know me.. the WHOLE TIME in there I wore Devils shit all the way… I was in GLOAT and SUCK IT mode to them…. I had fought with 10 different “Ducks fans” the time I was there and I was LOUD about it too…. so we’re walking around on the way out… this guy sees the Devils jersey…. “DUDE!!” He chases us down…”I GOT ONE THING TO SAY TO YOU”…. Heather’s like… awwwww noooo…..he comes out and extends his hand “I’m an LA Kings fan, you dudes saved my summer… THANK YOU for stopping Anaheim!!!” (I guess LA’s not totally bad….)
– So dumb whore looks at us with a WTF for the KILL chant, so I stop and yell ITS FOR A PENALTY KILL, duh!!!(Some people :p)
the look on her face when she turned even more pale on that one… pretty awesome!
** Tammie Hamilton wannabee hockey fans sheesh
– You know… I gotta say for a who cares type game in November that was pretty damn fun wasn’t it????
