No Update Needed.

To answer the burning question, YES — we’re still alive. Despite losing a pie-eating contest to my girlfriends brother, (Seriously, who eats NINE pieces of pie and still LOSES?!) I’m still able to sit and rant about my team.

That being said, as hockey fans we’re all used to watching our teams throw up the occasional stinker — much like the Devils did the other night in Pittsburgh. As bloggers, it’s typically our duty to go running through our cluttered ten-by-ten apartments — dodging landmines of empty pizza boxes and chinese take-out along the way — and rip our boys a brand new shiny one for doing so.

In other cases, our readers take care of it for us. Please see exhibit 1-A:

(In response to our Thanksgiving Day graphic)

Thanks for taking the words right out of our mouths, Rick. Next time the boys throw up a smelly one like that again, I’ll be sure to make you your very own 2MA graphic.

Now… how to kill the next couple of days before we meet up with the Flyers?

Meet Your Favorite Devils Bloggers…and us, too!

Okay gang, this is it. In a mere six hours, the puck drops on the 2008-’09 season. Myself and Joe will both be in attendance tonight, as will various other bloggers from the Devils blogosphere.

What does this mean? Meet-up, of course. First intermission, by the giant hockey puck from last year’s opening night – across from the Fire Lounge on the grand concourse, near the memorabilia auction. Myself and Joe will be there, Schnookie and Pookie from Interchangeable Parts will be there, maybe even John from In Lou We Trust. A true Devils bloggers powwow indeed.

I’ll even bring stickers.

So please, if you’re at the game tonight, come by and say howdy. We’d love to see everyone! Don’t forget to print your Ramos shutdown post for Joe to autograph!

Hope to see everyone at the game, and stay tuned here late tonight/early tomorrow for a wrap-up of all things opening night!
