Thoughts From Section 209…. Devils/Flyers, a home opener we shoulda left closed!

OMG!!!
OMG!!!
OMG!!!
I AM SO FREAKING OUT I WILL ACTUALLY SAY OH MY GOD!!!!
WE LOST THE HOME OPENER TO THE FLYERS… OH NO… babies are burning… dogs are getting humped by cats… the Cubs will win a World Series!!!!!!!

CALM THE FUCK DOWN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!
It was ONE GAME… and it’s gonna hurt people to hear this (but hey that is what I do, right?)… the Flyers are a BETTER team then we are… the Penguins… are a better team then we are (least right now)

Tonight’s Lines:
Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Rolston-Zubrus-Bergfors
Pandolfo (lord knows why…)-NiederMOMMY-Clarkson
Peters-Pelley-Halischuk

Oduya-Martin
White-Mottau
Salvador-Murphy

The Good:
— Well hats off to Bill for organizing that pre-game Bar Crawl all over Ironbound…. stir-fried abortion pizza aside, it was a hundred stars and we all had a FANTASTIC TIME… well till we hit the Arena Bar and we all scattered… that die hard U of Michigan fan doing the play by play on the MSU game on the phone was truly one of the funniest things I ever saw (well aside of me turning THAT pizza box into a Hell In A Cell Type foreign object… Gina took more head shots from it then Pacino did in Scarface :p)
— Rolston on the power play to avenge that horrific 5 on 3 in the first period…. and Langenbrunner on the short handed goal…. shame I didn’t feel like celebrating the goals cause they felt wasted and I’d rather save that for Monday now….
— Good loud and READY crowd… shame they got NOTHING to cheer for… grrrrr
— 2 points for the Zubbie monster!! Since he is like the 2ma mascot… gotta cheer for that… also Nick Bergfors getting an assist was nice….

The Bad:
— Well.. the game… the GOALTENDING for damn sure… like I said… there are teams WAY better then us now… so that means YOU
… mister REPUTATION GOALIE… GET OFF YOUR ASS AND ELEVATE TO BE THAT BEST GOALIE IN THE WORLD YOU DELUDE YOURSELF INTO THINKING YOU ARE… instead we get a vinatge Nabakov impressinon and MB30 shits the bed so much that HHH is gonna smell the leftovers during the main event tomorrow night!!!
— Oduya/Martin and White/Mottau?? How many coaches are going to fail with this top 4?? I love ya Jacques and you are wise… this is NOT the way my friend…..
— So we fire Cameron the shirt tossing fuckface… and can’t find ANYONE ELSE to embarrass themselves in our arena?? So we bring the walking pile of AIDS BACK? Least now it fit the goaltending effort :p
— that 5 on 3 for two minutes in the first period was one of the harshest most painful moments of GAME OVER hockey I ever sat through in October…. I’ve seen worse in April…..
— Ryan Murphy… you are NOT Andy Greene sir.. give him his spot back!!!!
— Speaking of minuses … Johnny Oduya a -3? oi to the VEY indeed…..

the Funny:
— Well besides the bar crawl of course :).. anyone who’s been following my football commentary… I’ve been using this analogy to describe how I feel as a Cowboys fan seeing Terrell Owens being the Buffalo Bills’ problem this year:
“It’s like you walk down the street… you see someone… aw shit it’s your ex… she gets closer and the closer she gets the more you realize she put on like 50 ponds… and the more you see it.. the better you feel”….well lo and behold … I did walk past an ex coming down the escalator… and well fuck my life… SHE PUT ON LIKE 50 POUNDS…I have to admit I did chuckle!!!
— BREAKING NEWS, an usher to be unnamed has revealed to me that a certain mister steve cangeolsi has certain issues and does not like to be informed or reminded of his lack of height..yes people, cang has a napolean complex!!!!!!! I am set for life!!! (and anyone who knows me … and why, I’m gonna beat this horse into the tiny little ground the dude stands on!!!)
— damn I almost forgot this… and I am glad I facebook shit to keep it in mind… seeing Jamie get ID-ed in bar number three…. FOR A COKE… that was funny but sad all in one as well
— Lil Nicky, you are STILL a star… and that under the radar “cuckoo” message… hundred stars and the lil fella did get it all right again!

Alright I think I put enough into this tonight… and it’s Hell in a Cell tomorrow… and then Hell with Ranger fans… maybe the shit stink will be GONE by then…….

Thoughts from Section 209…Devils/Caps.. 2/3/2009

Well it was due to happen one of these nights… 8 in a row is pretty good, and you can’t win them ALL right? So as annoyed as you can be about the effort and the game… and the goaltending was… not so good… but we’ll get to that as we get going here….

the non-hockey:
— OK, we know it was dumb and he’s not a hall of fame player, but hey he was a relevant piece of the 1994 debacle…but really.. if you’re a Ranger Fan WHY ARE YOU IN THE ARENA TONIGHT??? WHY WHY WHY?? You should be paying your $1500 a seat, to see Mark Messier speak for 3 hours, Christopher Reeve brought back from the dead (was that offensive?? GOOD!!), the Stanley Cup skated around for the millionth time… and now even the 1994 Cup footage is COLORIZED!! (for you young folk back in the early days of TV, it was broadcast in black and white and this is a way of saying it’s OLD)
… but fear not Ranger Fans… DOUG LIDSTER NIGHT IS COMING!!!
— Speaking of disgraceful acts so as I was sitting there watching warm-ups.. a puck in got caught in the nets on a dump-in…so it sits there for like 5-10 minutes (ok evil Scott was waiting for a body check in warm-ups to drop the puck on the guy’s head)… and all of a sudden this dude runs down the section.. jumps on the seats… practically uses the guy’s son as a stepstool grabs the puck and runs the hell back up the steps… for what?? A WARMUP PUCK?? The dam thing don’t even have a LOGO on it…way to go 45-year old virgin.. more rubber you’ll never use elsewhere!!!!
— I also gotta add the 209 wisecrack of the night too… the guy behind me is the standard “mister makes the bad jokes guy” that you feed off of and re-crack his jokes to save them… and he had a gem last night… the Caps get pp#2 and he decides to yell at the Caps fan in the Redskin jersey… talk about confused…the dude with no shirt and THE GREAT 8 in marker on his back (I mean we like Zubrus and all but CMONNNNNN)… so he yells out
“HOW DO YOU LIKE OUR STIMULUS PACKAGE”
she raises her middle finger and points it at him
I just go back “GUESS YOU’RE NOT GETTING STIMULATED ENOUGH”
she did not move or gesture all game after :p

the Good:
— OK, who else got the feeling when we scored and made it 3-1, that it was “here we go again”….
— Alex Ovechkin was pretty much quiet all game… that’s a good sign and reminder of Devils teams of old… shut down the big name…and alot of this of all people goes to Mike Mottau
— Jamie Langenbrunner… only ONE goal.. TRADE HIM NOW!!!!!!
HE’S COOLING OFF OH NOOOOO!!!!

the Bad:
— this team was DEAD and lifeless in the first period… but again you can’t give 110%, 100% of the time no matter what the NHL Network commercial says :p
— the goaltending… MY GOD… 3 of 4 goals were stoppable and two were BAD… and for God’s sake… can ya play Weekes more then ONCE A MONTH PLEASE??? Shane Falco needed a night off!! I know Feb 26 is coming and the other guy’s gonna come in and as long as he stops 50% of his shots he’ll be in net… but STILL… UNLEASH THE WEEKES!!!!

— there’s not really a whole lot to say here that wasn’t hit up in the damn live-cap aside from game rantings and stuff, and if you can get really really angry about a team winning 8 of it’s last 9… it’s time for therapy… and decaf… yeah lots of decaf!!!!!!
