Archives for March 2010

OK, so we were HALF right about the Devils and the Olympic Break…. they needed time off and to get the hell home after a two-week break to come back to what we know and love (anyone else buying this or are we just glad they look like they found themselves again?)….either way you want to look at it, two big statement wins in a row over the Rangers and here the Penguins…. and as always a lot to talk about here (don’t I always?)

  • First Period:
  • — So as I was sitting there for warmups (and good to see Jen getting back to games again, FYI), I decided it would be a cool idea to send my half-sister (yes she’s a full blown Parise girl, but she’s 16 it’s ok… least we’re not fighting over Andy right??)…so I thought it would be cool to send her a few Parise pics from the blackberry… and then as I sent them… I realized…. hey, our father’s gonna pay up the ass for the photo texts…. so I sent a few more (I have years… decades…. of being a pain in the ass to father to catch up on :p)…. and I took an informal poll of my friends…. I was being 40% good brother, and 60% douchebag to my dad (but with a 100% approval rating of the douchebaggery!)
    — Also in attendance tonight with me…. Dave from DC, Tammie (I know she comes a lot… but hey she pays she cheers she gets herself there… a perfect ticket buyer!)… and my ex-fiancee #2 was with us as well, yes she’s a Penguins fan, but hey we all have flaws…. (yes an American one before you asses say it… I do… errr.. maybe did? go after and date American women in my time thank you)… and it was kinda weird to have three generations of hockey fans in my life at one game at one time (maybe generations is a bad word, but I don’t like the term “era” there…. whatever)

    — Well that was quick!

    (1 – 0, NJ!) Elias[12] (Greene, Kovalchuk) {1:43}
    Devils win the draw, greene the shot…misses the net
    ….Langs in front but to flies too fast past him, but
    there’s Elias…kick/wham score!!

    — and just as I was saying that was like the ranger game…..

    (1 – 1) Crosby[45] (Kunitz, Dupuis) {2:25}
    Unscreened shot from the faceoff dot, geesh
    that was playoff-type soft!!! Least it wasn’t 5-hole
    in overtime right?? Someone steal her gloves and stick!

    — least mb30 came back big on the next rush with a huge combo save!!
    –kinda funny moment when Malkin flubbed the puck during the pk, the kill chant politely paused waiting for him to get the puck back…heh
    — damn Fleury is giving some BIG rebounds!!
    — Andrew Greene if you hit that post again you’re sleeping on the couch mister!!! (kinda funny that the Pens came back and hit a post too but louder!)
    — wow, they give beer away at Nashville?? Hot shit!!!
    — and go figure the one night I wanna chat with the people I’m with, 209’s in the mood to be loud, go figure!

  • Second Period:
  • — Mottau with a HUGE tie up of the stick on the spinning penguin in front, three years in and he’s getting it :p
    — not much flow in the second but they ACTUALLY call Craig Adams for a MAJOR for hit from behind!! (Crap shoulda been Cooke)
    And holy shit I want those five minutes of life back and now!!
    ** Barry Meikle: As soon as that 5 was announced, I didn’t know whether to be happy or prepare for embarrassment.
    Lord Krang that’s five minutes of my life i’ll never get back
    (I kinda saw it coming we only have enough forwards to pump out 1 3/4 lines of power play talent after all)
    — wow funny we get better action, on the two minute pp, then the five?!?!?
    — gee Malkin falls down, the devils had a major, something was called….amazing how that happens ain’t it??
    — Kovy got a penalty shit and it was so bad my phone crashed…..fail and end of period!
    ** Lord Krang Andy Greene would’ve scored on that penalty shot!
    (she’s right :p)
    — This period kinda sucked, mostly because the Devils were on the power play HALF of it, and we know how that goes!

  • Third Period:
  • — I guess rob niedermommy is pals with Mark Savard?? That was a pathetic attempt at a fight with Matt Cooke and I only justify it by him fighting for Savard’s honor!
    — I guess Andy got threatened with one of my ex’s sitting with me 🙂

    (2 – 1, Devils!) Greene[6] (Kovalchuk, Salvador) {2:06}
    Kovy with a big bomb, as I was giving him the “Lord Krang treatment”
    (basically yelling no think, you play), Fluery the stop but andy with the
    yummy rebound and andy sleeps where andy wants tonight!!!

    ** Barry Meikle: My Pens buddy Sam is gonna get a faceful of Greene jersey at practice on Saturday if this stands up!
    — Langenbrunner being all Stevens-ish shoving that Kunitz through that open bench door!!! Just another piece of the INTENSITY of ten cities in that arena tonight!
    ** Josh Burnett: Chico gets the epic win of the evening, comparing Langs trip to the Pens bench to tag team wrestling, when you bring the guy to your corner and both people wail on him.
    — wow Fleury opens the whine-o-meter!

    (3 – 1) Kovalchuk[35] (Zubrus, Zajac) {9:59}
    Kovy cuts in and just unloads a BOMB with Zajac
    cutting in front, just enough to distract him
    and Fleury goes whining like his captain….
    he got owned sir!! (I guess I’d be pissed off
    of someone swatted my glove when I went to
    make a save, but I’d be man enough to not let my
    glove be moved AND I’d have punched him in the head!)

    — hhahahaha, the candy guy almost did a rail slide back down the section!
    — Jesus Kovy damn near killed himself trying to one time that bombed shot that was tipped (good to see he’s settling down in jersey finally)
    — nice touch to try to let Kovy get the hat on the empty net but the win works too!!
    — and some post-game comments:
    ** Deanna Tortorello Over: Andy gets first star and you interview Marty? C’mon, Fishface!
    Josh Burnett: Andy Greene is FAR too awesome to be near the geezer. Stan would drop dead of a heart attack being anywhere near the aura of Andy Greene.
    Me: Guess Andy didn’t wanna sleep on the couch after all… awwww 🙂

    Well this was a long time coming wasn’t it?? No not the win on the Rangers… I meant a freaking Devils home game!!! I guess I can kinda go back to normal here (though normal never was my strong point)… and man this was a fun, but stressful one… first to play defense wins… good thing it was us eh?? Lots to talk about and even more to share and I hope to add some more youtube’s in the morning for it.. meanwhile… just enjoy the rantings of a section that felt like it was a second home opener this year!!!

  • Pre-Game Wanderings
  • — lady gaga sucks…lady gaga on the organ? Legit justificction for murder… please keep the organ music to songs MEANT to be played on one… thanks!!
    ** comments on pre-game rantings:
    Cara Brandenburg OMG ON THE FAT GUY…and LAY OF THE RANGERS!!!
    Scott Mackie: Get out of my building then :p
    Not my fault you can’t afford to sit in your own dump!!
    — fat guys should not wear white us Olympic jerseys, very non-flattering!! The dude looked like he was trying to sneak in three babies…. you’re fat…we get it… you don’t need to assault all with the belly of DOOM!!!!

  • First Period
  • — oh boy Pete’s in “I aint been here in a month” form, already!! Have to admit this feels like the season opener again!
    So like I was saying, he yells “HEY LUNDQVST FACE THE FUCKING FLAG FOR ONCE”….I’ll be damned he did!!
    — hell the Ranger fans got into it….if you guys don’t knock it off I’m calling my wife and you’re going home with her!
    — Pelley/PL^3 and McAmmond, that’s an angry line!
    — well its a good start for Langs-Elias-Kovy at least!
    — well holy shit!!

    (1-0, devils!) Niedermayer[8] (Rolston, Mottau) {4:16}
    Rolston the shot from the bad angle, ol’puffy pads stops it,
    but it rolls right in front, through Clarkson and HOLY SHIT
    …..NIIIEEDDDDERRRRMMMAAAYYEERR!! Buries that fucker
    top shelf, leaving me stunned and confused that he had that
    level of skill even for an instant!

    — sigh so much for feeling good eh….

    (1-1) Prospal[15] (Gaborik, Jokinen) {5:15}
    I’m still typing the devils goal and bang, bang no coverage in front
    Jokin and Gaborik make stupid good long passes across the ice…..
    Gaborik from the corner…. sees Prospal in front and he dunks it home,
    like I said didn’t see much of it, hell be lucky NHL Network had this on
    “On the Fly” as I sat down!

    — but right after Gaborik robbed by quick mb30!!
    — and out come the rangers suck thundersticks…en masse!! (And we killed a penalty in there too)
    — thunder…..thunder….thunder-sticks…. hoooooooo!!!!
    — Mottau makes a nice play chopping down a pass in front, I’m still amazed and it was note-worthy that someone did!!
    — Andy Greene, use the sword of omens!!!

    (2-1, Devils!!) Salvador[4] (Greene, Langenbrunner) {18;17}
    Man I screwed this one up live… I saw Niedermayer in front
    and assumed he was the one who tipped it through the PuffyPads!
    MY BAD!!! Devils pass it around the point… Andy blesses the puck
    as he passes to Salvador…. Bryce shoots… Ranger stick… delfection
    … and a GOOOAAALLLLL!!!

    — and PL^3 and Shelley beat the living fuck out of each other for like two minutes!!!! Full Mortal Kombat song!!! (I will comb youtube again in the morning and post it if/when I find this 5 bell slobberknocker!)
    — not a bad first period, but didn’t seem to have that extra level that the asses in the seats are bringing…

  • Second Period:
  • — devils come out strong and holy shit does mb30 made TWO ABSURD FUCKING SAVES AND THE SPIN-A-ROONIE COVER AFTER!! Wow!!!!
    — well that was ugly, but was it a goal??

    (2-2) Christensen[6] (Dubinsky, Girardi) {5:01}
    Christensen comes in….dekes one…dekes two…left to right and right
    past mb30 but did it ever cross the line?? Geeessshhh
    (ok I watched it four times on the DVR replay… yeah it crossed the line.. oh well)

    — we kill a power play….they don’t!!

    (3-2, Devils!!) Parise[31-pp] (Zubrus, Zajac) {8:38}
    Hey look!! Kovy got it done with his shot!!! He takes the big point shot….
    it bounces and rolls all the hell over the place….Zubbie kicks at it… so does Zajac
    … finally rolls wide… Parise scoots in… goes wide… and right past puffy so we all
    can yell AHHHHHHH in POWER PLAY UNISON!!! (shame on us though we never did
    say fuck you Sam Rosen!)

    — wow this is ass….

    (3-3) Prust[2] (Shelley) {9:15}
    Every time they take the lead, they let them come right back and make 3-4 really
    good plays in front and this is what’s gonna happen, holy shit!! And this one’s ugly….
    Fraser wipes out by the net… bad enough…but he kicks the puck out right into the
    slot… where even no-talent Jody Shelley (maybe he’s PIST too cause he got face
    pounded by PL^3 before)… and he takes a shot…. mb the lunging save… but rebound
    to Prust who cut through the crease and stuffed it home… really guys I know the NHL
    hates defense… BUT PLAY SOME!!!

    ** Tammie Hamilton: really okay devils we are playing hockey not watching it from the ice
    (goes with my play defense comment eh?)
    — the score is 3-3 and shots are 14-11 Devils, somethin ain’t right there….
    — and the oohhh la la sassoon chants break out in honor of this old commercial
    ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNjntNHHUs0 this is not something to watch with a weak tummy!)
    — hey!! What the fuck!??!?

    (4-3, Devils) Langenbrunner (Mottau, Greene) {13:06}
    Mottau a sweet shot/pass thrown in front ….Langenbrunner looks and waits….
    swats and man it don’t get tipped no better then that and puffy was PIST and
    she launched the puck to center ice!! (since we missed it before)…. Its an even strength goal….
    FUCK YOU SAM ROSEN!!!!!!

    — hey we kept the puck in their end for a minute after!!! And remember that 8-5 game last year??

    (5-3) Rolston[18] (Niedermayer, Clarkson) {15:19}
    DOWN GOES HENRIK!!!! DOWN GOES HENRIK!!!!!!!!
    They totally blow this three on one and STILL make it happen!! Clarkson almost offside,
    olston flubs the puck twice and still dekes redden silly…shot in front I think Clarkson gets
    it (he doesn’t but neither did Puffy!) …and OFF TO THE THRONE GOES THE QUEEN!!!
    Quite possibly the most pathetic effort ever seen on a 4 on 1 …. to actually score a goal!
    The only thing worse was Redden trying to defend it!

    ** Barry Meikle: That was the worst 3 on 1 success I’ve ever seen.
    Doug Mecca: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    (funny how I was saying the same thing eh?)
    — God it was awesome as hell to see him run like a scalded bitch from the crease to pout, sulk, feel shame, hate life and attack towel boys too!!! 5 goals on 17 shots, that’s an Olympic like effort…. if you’re called Kiprosuff!
    — and man the anti-puffy pad chants are flying, not to mention the jersey shore reject rangers fan who’s oddly quiet now!!!
    — its an ALL YOUR FAULT chant at Callahan for the Olympics?? Nice!!!

  • Third Period:
  • — ok, I’m exhausted, feel like hell but the horn from shortsguy making the ranger fan in front of me wince squirm and get a tension headache is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen!! The perils of road-fandom eh asshat!!
    — go figure the game is insanely intense for two periods, they pull puffypads and both teams accept this as over…..its almost no fun to kick on silent ranger nation in the arena!! Hell you’d almost say the rangers are as dead as Corey Haim, guess that boy’s really lost now eh??
    — well that was a pretty nail in the coffin!!!

    (6-3) Zajac[21] (Zubrus, White) {16:21}
    I mention corey haim and we see a death blow, nice!!! Zubrus over
    the line, stops and spins giving to Zajac and holy shit he’s can’t get
    no more alone…Zajac controls, shot….SCAWR! And the rangers
    suck confetti runs amuck!!

    — and man the mock rangers goal song was kinda fun!! (So was the Sweet Caroline followed by RANGERS SUCK!!)
    This dude in front of me is gonna kick his wife kids and dogs I swear!!

    … and now for something different!! As I had hoped for, people have begun to step up in the “Guest Host” project I am trying to take, just to mix it up and give you guys something ELSE to read… so please… send more!! And for all those who wanted to complain about the Edmonton, Calgary and San Jose games… here check out THIS story from the other side of the Ocean!!!! So I step aside again and hands the keys over to Barry Meikle…. GO!!

    When you live somewhere 5 hours behind Eastern Standard Time, following American sports and the NHL in particular can be a demanding pastime. Sure the internet has made things a little easier, but there is still the little detail of a 7pm face off time translating to Midnight BST.
    I first got into hockey in 1989. My dad, a big NFL fan since it had hit UK television in 1982, was keen to do something different on a Sunday evening the weekend of the bye week before the Super Bowl. “Ice Hockey” was suggested and off we went to the local pre World War II rink, one of only a handful or so fit for semi-pro hockey in Scotland at the time, to see a match between the Murrayfield Racers and the Ayr Bruins. I was immediately hooked. The arena was around two-thirds full and I had no idea how much noise 2000 people could make. Through buying programmes at subsequent matches I attended, I realised there was a league in the US and Canada. The match programme would feature results from the NHL. No dates, no match reports, no standings even, just results.
    Getting information about a league over 3000 miles away back then was not easy. There was no internet and very little TV coverage. Ice hockey is very much a minority sport in the UK and unfortunately the old clichés about the sport being boxing on ice still exist here today to a certain degree. Newspaper coverage was minimal, almost non-existent with only the broadsheets carrying 2-day old results daily with standings once a week. There was Teletext* which I’m led to believe is a little like Telidon in the U.S. which gave results and standings. That was the best way to keep track of the season and work out the playoff format from seeing which teams played each other in the first round. (*Teletext was how I found out that the Devils had lost Game 7 of the Conference Finals to the Rangers in 1994. “New York 2 New Jersey 1, OT (New York win the series 4-3)”. That was all the information I got. No details, just the horrible news in a blunt, primary colour format.)
    As cable and satellite TV became more widely available in the UK in the early 1990’s, the potential for seeing NHL games increased. Before that time we only had 4 channels available and they closed down after midnight. The only TV exposure I had to hockey before that had been Saturday afternoon re-runs of ‘He Shoots, He Scores’ featuring the Quebec Nationals, a fictional team with a distinctly non-fictional logo. Eventually we started to get an NHL ‘Game Of The Week’ which would be a one hour show of highlights from a game from the previous week. My first live TV NHL experience came in the 1990/91 season, a Saturday afternoon face off between the Devils and the Flyers from the Meadowlands with Doc Emrick commentating. Whether it was the novelty of seeing a ‘proper’ live hockey game on TV, even at a time when live soccer games were rare, or the fact that Kirk Muller scored after just 12 seconds, who knows. My decision was made. “That team, the Devils, I like them”.
    The 1991 and ‘92 Stanley Cup Finals were broadcast on cable and I prayed in vain for the series to go 7 games so I could keep watching (which is probably why I have an irrational hatred of Mario Lemieux to this day). In 1993 we were down to a one hour show 24 hours after each game of the Finals and by 1994 TV coverage had disappeared altogether (hence the Teletext story above). My dad discovered the NFL on the Armed Forces Radio Network broadcasting from Germany on an old 80’s style hi-fi system he had. During the 1995 Stanley Cup Finals, I decided to try my luck and was rewarded with play-by-play of Game 1. I had to turn the whole thing South-East to get the best reception and for some reason the already unpredictable reception used to fade gradually as the sun came up. The 1am starts during the Finals combined with a 4:30 sunrise during June conspired to make the reception fade completely before the end of the 3rd period. Consequently, I missed the last 3 minutes of the deciding Game 4.
    The NHL moved to ‘Terrestrial’ TV in the UK in 1999 which showed 2 live games a week (on Wednesday and Sunday nights) and all the Stanley Cup Finals games live. Great, until you reach game 6 of the Finals between Buffalo and Dallas. Because the game overran its time slot by a good 2 hours due to triple overtime, Channel 5 had to cut away for good at 6am to revert to regular programming starting with the News, resulting in UK viewers missing the Cup winning goal by Brett Hull. The reason for the cut-away was because the two programmes used the same studio.
    In 2000, I managed to see every second of the Cup Finals involving the Devils and the Dallas Stars including the marathon game 5 which ended at around 6:00 am BST. That was until I decided that the intermission between the 1st and 2nd overtimes of Game 6 would be a good time to ‘rest my eyes’. I woke up during the player celebrations with Scott Stevens about to be handed the Stanley Cup and I still can’t watch Jason Arnott’s Cup-winning goal to this day. One of the best moments in Devils history reminds me what an idiot I am. I think I must be the only Devils fan in history who has said, ‘Oh no!’ on discovering his team had won the Cup.
    Finally in 2003 I got to see a Devils Stanley Cup win. Third time’s a charm. In 2002 a channel completely dedicated to North American sports (NASN, now called ESPN America) started up on cable which now shows live games virtually every night and 2 on Saturdays for Hockey Night In Canada. We can now also access espn360’s NHL Center Ice package online (for around $140 a season), so it is now possible for me to see every Devils game in a season, something which seemed unfathomable 15 years ago (hell, even 5 years ago).
    In my 20 years of following the Devils, I have visited the States and Canada 6 times, taking in a dozen Devils games in the process, meeting some really cool people and having some fantastic times. The highlights include:
    • Getting tickets to a Private box in the Air Canada Centre after a chance meeting with the President of the Devils fan club at the Hockey Hall Of Fame in 2001.
    • Sitting beside and chatting to Mrs Pandolfo and Mrs Mottau during Opening Night at Prudential Center in 2007.
    • Sitting 9 rows from the glass during the 2003 banner-raising ceremony in the same corner of the arena that the banner was raised from.
    • Being chased through the streets of Toronto by irate Maple Leafs fans for waving a Devils banner after the Devils eliminated the Leafs from the 2001 Playoffs.
    • Having an irrational hatred of Michael Nylander after he scored the winning goal in Calgary’s 2-1 win at the Meadowlands in November 1995, ruining my first Devils game.
    • Meeting Scott from this very site in December 2009 and sitting in the legendary Section 209.

    Well I’ve been wanting to fool with doing one of these off my blackberry, and if you’re gonna test something you try it before you go live at a devils game right?? And few people in life do I hold a bigger grudge for turning chicken shit and running for the hills more then coach prune-face….so let’s bring the hate and watch Brent Sutter perfect the art of choke-coaching and do it in the regular season!!!

    And this game has even more meaning tonight, and yeah this story will take a bit to get to properly but here goes: as some of you know I have a zero-type relationship with my father, long story I ain’t looking for pity, it doesn’t give me a reason for anything in my life and it hasn’t turned me into any kinda headcase….but anyway, my sister found him and he found me and in the process I am getting to know my two half-brothers and two half-sisters and its been good….so in that process I was talking and hounding the oldest about watching some olympic hockey, and finally she caved and watched the 3rd period of the gold medal game….and when parise scored she was like, who was THAT?? I’m like oh he’s one of ours and she goes back, you have season tickets right?? Now three of the four are watching tonight 🙂

  • First Period
  • — Nice touch having free falling on for one of the old Scott Stevens light em up hits!!
    — Kovy down in the corner but as he gets up we resort to Ivan Drago type lines for him declaring revenge on svatos!!
    “Brent, I must break you!!”
    –I kinda wish we still had bergfors for tonight so he could score flip off Sutter and yell fuck you and your 45 seconds of ice time ball bag!!!!!! ….though Andy could do the same here!!!

    (1-0) Parise[29] (Langenbrunner, Greene) {13:37}
    Oh andy you’re back!! ….nice play at the point to keep turn and shoot, Langenbrunner in front tips it
    but kicks it over the net…and its ahhhhhh Parise!! Rebound, scwar!!!

    — all in all a fun first period, very high tempo, and it was nice to see Brian Rolston play like he gave a fuck and a half tonight (even drawing a penalty!!)

  • Second Period
  • — second period, not so good a start :p

    (1-1) Langkow[12] (Higgins, Kotalik) {1:43}
    Wow white and Mottau on for a goal against?? Just for you Brent! Higgins
    behind the net….cycles in front….Mottau doesn’t and Langkow spin-a-roonies
    it past mb30 (not his fault)

    – we’re halfway t where we want ’em now, get them up 2-1 with 90 seconds left and we’re GOLD!!
    — so Staios can pile drive kovy into the boards, but they call him on the reacharound?? CMON!!
    — hrrmm, kipper’s pads look bigger, compensating for an American beat down, fuck yea!!
    — well our guy didn’t do too well on the US either…

    (2-1, Cgy) Glencross [15-sh] (none) {5:41}
    Man Kovy got owned at the point and had a breakaway so clean
    he could map 50 ways to score on mb30 on this one and he owned
    him like a blonde drunk with a keg of Coors light!!
    (clearly the turning point of the night)

    — got ’em right where we want ’em kids!! Now we wait!!!
    — clarkson fights for the Clark-a-like behind the bar!!! Two punches a take down and stunner!!!! Now give Sutter double digits!!!!
    — me “dammit kovy you owe us one for the oopsie before”….ten seconds later rob texts “kovy owes us one eh?”
    — man the flames are all over the front of the net, when did Brent learn coaching 101??
    — umm, 15 years of recaps and I’m stunned….

    (3-1) Nystrom[7] (none) {16:04}
    Canada’s favorite punching bag makes a nice poke check to stop the puck,
    has it with his glove but loses his balance and moves, exposing the puck and
    hellllooo empty netter, feeling our age are we mb??

    — wow, they quit on Sutter this time, irony ….least that period is over!!

  • Third Period
  • — things went ok in the third, but not for long…

    (4-1) Stajan[19] (Bourque, Iginla) {9:29}
    Flames not getting much preesure but it only takes one shift….
    Bourque rips a nice shot that mb gets the shoulder on but the
    rebound was beefier and this one’s DONE….

    — seems goalie interference doesn’t exist anymore

    (5-1) Moss[8] (Hagman, Backlund) {10:02}
    Moss all but puts his junk in mb’s mouth while totalling
    busting into the crease, gets the rebound and holy shit….
    Least this goal is Bob Backlund approved, eh?

    — well least Clarkson whipped some ass, to think I almost went to this :p
    — speaking of blowing even a Brent Sutter team can’t blow this!
    — well I guess we can make em squirm…

    (5-2) Parise[30-pp] (Langenbrunner, Zajac) {16:08}
    Heh, seem familiar kipper??? Parise the long pass across to
    Langs who bombs it, unlike in a Finn jersey, Kipper stops it
    but beefy rebound du jour is there for Zach to tip home…aahhh??

    — well it IS Brent Sutter!!

    (5-3) Kovalchuk[34] (Elias, Zubrus) {17:26}
    Well I was about to say if they get one here they can make em sweat….and Kovy walks over the line…shot…squeaks….through…Kipper and stops just over the goal line!!!

    — make em sweat fuckers!!!!
    — and our best goalie’s in there….empty net!! But it was not meant to be….oh well, they did make it interesting at least…..

    (well unless anyone wants to guest host the Oilers game…. no more recaps till the Wednesday Ranger game… but i’ll try to pop up something to give some kind of discussion on the board…. wanna keep the place active after all!!!)

    But damn I miss the Olympics already (curling… women’s hockey, and not to mention the fun of the men’s tournament… it was all great, but hey all good things must end, and we’ll get it again in 4 years right??)… I just feel I picked up some momentum from the Olympics (I’d love to say the site did, but it’s painfully obvious at this point that I’m two-man all alone ain’t it?)… and I just wanna keep the flow going here…. but I’m not recapping tonight’s game…. tonight’s my favoritest of bar nights and all…. I ain’t giving that up, and my deal was always the home games :p…. not to mention I feel there is too much me going on here anyway as is…. so I figured I’d remind you of my “Guest Host” concept…. you write it… I post it here… just keep it about the Devils…. hell I don’t care if you write 1200 words saying what a douche I am (a certain ninja turtle fan out there will say I welcome it!)…. but I want a second voice, at least, speaking up on this damn site…. so CMONNNNN!!!!!

    However that rant aside, I have almost a year of pent-up anger to shoot off at old coach prune-face in Calgary so I can see me doing some kinda write-up to shoot off on him now ruining my second favorite team as well….. but if you got something to say… holy hell… just SAY IT, I’d say email it to the 2man email…. but… umm…. I don’t think I know the username and password (again if you knew the awkwardness of being handed the keys to the site but I can’t check under the hood or even open the trunk, it’s kinda weird)
    so if you want…. email through the facebook site ( http://www.facebook.com/twomanadvantage ) or just [email protected], I tend to check that enough on my cell phone…. so it’s all good…..

    And oh yeah… get the hell back out there Paul Martin (and CMON LOU, we need a defenseman!!!)
    Let there be NHL Hockey again!
