Thoughts from Section 209: Devils vs Caps, Nov 14, 2009

You know… it’s funny… I think I’ve grown up… a LOT in the last few years (say what you want and I know you will)… and in that time maybe a little bit, I’ve redefined what being a sports fan is to me … Yeah seeing your team win (regardless of sport)… yeah that’s awesome… but you know what really the best part of being a REAL sports fan… it’s about sitting in the same place with them all and enjoying it… I’ve been real lucky this year…. my little 209 army is growing… and boy we have a FOCUS NOW… simply put… the GREATNESS of Andy Greene…. we have a church and it meets 41 times a year in Newark… COME WORSHIP at the Altar of the GREENE MACHINE!!!! (all that and the Devils 1000th win as a franchise… nice little achievement!!)

the Good:
— the power play… I can barely remember a time when the Devils pp was good for a GOAL A GAME like it’s been the last few weeks… that’s scary good, and hell… always fun to yell EARMUFFS…. FUCK YOU SAM ROSEN!!!!!!!!!!
— Bounce-back… yeah they were down two and looked dead at the start of the game… and yeah they’d come back under Sutter even… but with Sutter it was “beat the vets into the ground” hockey… now it’s Murphy (more on him in the funny), Halischuk.. hell even Colin White with the “seeing eye goal” too… it’s a DIFFERENT… hell BETTER way to come back in a hockey game!! (and this team will benefit greatly from the young guys getting into the mix and REALLY adding to this team!)
— Tim Sestito… you’ve been initiated… thanks to Rob marking out over his assist…. it’s SESTITO SANTANA!! ARRRRIBAA!!!!
— Cory Murphy… yes even you have been saved by the Church of Greene!!! And poor Rob… he made his GF a bet that if Cory Murphy scored a pp goal… he’d buy her his jersey… he assists on the pp goal… and scores at even strength… I say he still owes her one!! Hell when he scored I chanted… HEY…. YOU’RE FUCKED and pointed at him the whole time…. it was funny!
hell even…. Lord Krang *Plays taps for rob*
— I’ll even break the ice and say… mb30 was actually pretty… GOOD… tonight… saw my first HOLY SHIT save of the year… hell other small miracles in life happened… had to throw the Ego a bone eh??

the Bad:
— ZUBBIE COUNTER DENIED… booo on you Colin White!!!!!
— well the first 5 minutes were just HARSH… but once they got past that….
— Holy Shit…. Andrew Peters is so bad he scratches himself when he plays NHL ’10!!
— I really got nothing else here… well aside of no ANDY’S BETTER chant aimed at the clearly lesser of the Green’s!!!
— all the Peanut Butter Poti comments at Tom Poti made me DAMN HUNGRY for a Peanut Butter sandwich…. if I had any in the house!

the Funny:
— Well I had a bad day today before getting to the game… work was slow (and worse.. on a Saturday…) I felt like hell… and I’m wrapping up my second computer job… it’s 430…. I’m ready to go once the AVG installs… THE DUDE PULLS OUT THE PLUG ON THE SURGE PROTECTOR and damn near outs the WHOLE OFFICE *sigh*… least he slipped me $20 and I was out the door by 5!
— I’m all at the game… all relaxed… ate my nachos… all ready for warmups… and then this:
I get stuck with the most complete and total moron by me in warmups:
First he goes “I’m gonna throw this beer on the caps when they come out”…um how are you going to do that from the zamboni entrance??
And then he calls ovechkin as big a pussy as crosby?? Really take your god hoodie and get the fuck out of my arena!!… or better sent out to Anaheim to root for the pond scum as he tries to make more stupid bragger comments to the girl with him (it was so seriously bad I typed out on my phone to the girl next to me “I don’t mean to be rude or a jerk, but this guy could possibly be the stupidest guy on the planet and I want to hurt him!!”… she laughed 😀
— Got my Andy Greene jersey from the NHL Store in the mail on Friday… yay… the problem is this lil “fatass” lost too much weight and the XL Jersey is kinda… gigantic…. and it’s more like I have an Andy Greene SNUGGIE…. more then a damn jersey… but I guess our Andy is snuggie-worthy!!!
— the “Jose… Joseeeeeee” chant at Theodore

(****NEW****) the Andy Greene Section of WORSHIP!!!!:
— Scott Mackie: Andy Greene did not miss that puck, it was part of a grander play that none of us mortals can understand!!
— Scott Mackie: Wow what a pass breakup and block by Greene!!
Rob: is it me or is greene the 2nd coming of Jesus?
No, jesus was the pre-cum of andy sir!!
— Lord Krang: hey, Andy Greene is go great, he even makes his teammates do the impossible. see Murphy, Colin white tonight
— Tammie Hamilton…the caps pbp says the mike green and Andy Greene are not related just so you know………..
** Lord Krang…because the e for excellent at the end of Andy’s name didn’t already tip us off to that…
** Scott Mackie: I think we can all admire having an extra “E” in my life had benefited me again ?
** Tammie Hamilton like tammiE 😉 lol
** Lord Krang i ? this thread
** Scott Mackie…Soooo I was about to make a jets joke, rob’s friend paul goes “hey no talk of pain when andy greene is on the ice”….kick/wham breakaway goal…
AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH PARISE!!!!
(Funny how the more homage we paid to the Greene machine the more the WHOLE TEAM was scoring!!)
— Scott Mackie “Andy Greene won the 2005 stanley cup…by himself!!”
And again we make an awesome Greene joke and we score
That’s awesome!!!!!
(see, living proof, thank you facebook!!)
— Josh Burnett: yea, though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i shall fear no evil, for Andy Greene bat the living shit out of it. (we scored again FYI)
— Scott Mackie: Andy Greene is so good that he gets a plus one on pp goals!!!
— Lord Krang Official stats so far: Andy Greene, 0 assists, +3. Mike Green, 2 assists, -1
(Andy Greene is so much better we need not chant, we KNOW)

Well there ya go… damn that was fun again… thanks to all who helped add to the greatness of Andy Green… mass is over… you may now face-check in peace!!!

Thoughts from Section 209: Devils vs Caps, Nov. 4, 2009

Hey!! It seems I find a way monthly to really piss someone off in this place….
first it’s bad language, then I’m just a fat douchebag (from a chump in Buffalo
who has to hide behind a fake name, but it is Buffalo… if any sports fan has
the right to be bitter at the world it IS a Buffalo sports fan :p)…. so anyway…
love it… or hate it… YOU’RE READING IT and I’ll be in your face either way 🙂
(more so to mister Buffalo since I will be at the Devils/Sabres game in Buffalo
Dec 7, I ain’t afraid a mouth to mouth confrontation, hell ask Gina :p) ….Anyway
on to tonight, and a feel good win…. and WAH.. the Caps don’t have Ovechkin….
we don’t have Elias, Martin. Oduya (well Pando too but he don’t count)…
we still keep winning… so there!!!!

the Good:
— THREE GOALS… no sitting on the lead… two goals on the power play… this is all good! And the 3rd goal was HUGE when the Devils had their moment of Sutter letting the lead get to 3-2 with 96 seconds left… but that was gladly just an annoyance more then reason to be annoyed….
— Nick Bergfors!! The kid is making those steps… you know… from nifty player to kid you expect to see good things from with the puck (two power play goals don’t hurt…. neither does playing with Zajac (SCAAWWRRR!) and Parise (AAAAHHH!!!).. that can help your game too… ) but he also plays like he BELONGS there!
— Did I mention the power play?? Two goals…. FUCK YEAH!!!
— ROD PELLEY FOUGHT…. ROD PELLEY WON!!! He was actually kinda good tonight…. guess he didn’t like what I said!
— Brian Rolston!! OK, so what it was a Clark-a-round?? SCAWRRRREEE!!! And it’s a start…. 6 more this month and he might be alright!
— And hooray!! The Murphy AND Tammie curses are broken… she can come to games now and hope for WINS!!! (Now if only we can get a soccer playing Ninja Turtle to see a win this year…..)
— and how can I write a “Thoughts” without singing about ANDY GREENE!! 208/209 randomly chants for him on the power play and he trans-morphed into Sandis Ozlinish… he was all over the damn place…. was funny too that we all chanted… he winds to shoot and WE ALL STOPPED in awe and hope of Greene goodness!! (and we had 26 minutes of goodness too!!)

the Bad:
— I guess I could call this in the funny, but since I really HATE stupid people… this goes in the bad category…..
Why is it, the lower you sit the more retarded you are?? This fucking woman next to me is staring at her ticket and then her seat incapable of the simple task of reading both and sitting where the numbers line up!!! And you know of course… excuse me ain’t an option… let me barrel through ya… which ain’t gonna work with the “fatass” who jogged five miles today, walked another three and you know… still plays goalie at 36… just fucking say EXCUSE ME… you won’t die… you won’t get the swine flu and people might actually MOVE!
— PL^3 I love ya… you play hard… you hit… but dude… really… stop swinging your stick on the forecheck like you’re a Jamaican man in heat scoping for chicks on a nude beach by waving his mammoth junk to wow them! Control that thing!!!!
— I’m kinda worried a bit about the monster minutes some of our guys are logging again (Langenbrunner 22 mins? Rolston 17? Guess that ain’t so bad…)…. but still we’re gonna wear out our older guns… I know the 4th line sucks and the 3rd line needs work… but damn….this is not good when the schedule tightens…..
— I’m bitching off ice again… but how come they can re-pave East 22 in like an HOUR but the right lane on West 22 is out FOR
A MONTH… CMON JERSEY!!!

the Funny:
— The devils just asked me to do the pre-game game day rant (the one from the Verizon booth)…my answer “no thanks I do one after!” …. nice comment from Rob when I sent out the text to a few people…. “Oh DEVILS!!”…yes silly silly Devils!
— the premature goal horn as the Russian Vermin made a save that blooped over the net after Rolston fired… it was pretty funny cause it was obvious from our seats that ain’t going in!
— and no (GINA :p)… I was NOT talking to myself in facebook… I usually make some notes and comments I use here later… and USUALLY people chirp in and I add funnies to the recap here (remember I’m not allowed to write blogs… good thing I was doing them before they got named as such)… damn that Yankee (and for one person… soccer)… fever…*sigh* what a bad night to not care about baseball eh??
— speaking of… remember how they yelled at us for FUCK YOU SAM ROSEN last game (Obama-Palooza hit the Rock last week and everyone spazzed out… not like it helped ya Corzine!! I’ve hated him since he shook down the state to raise the sales tax!)…. so well we can’t say “It’s a power play goal…..FUCK YOU SAM ROSEN”…. but we can say it twice!!!
— and since I am dropping F-Bombs anyway…. would anyone else buy a team USA Jersey that said “AMERICA…. FUCK YEAH!!” on the front???

Wow, better get used to me sooner or later here… the home games are starting to pile up, 5 more this month… and then… oh boy….10 in December (I will miss 2 going to Buffalo, but you get one FROM Buffalo)… better hope someone else picks up the keyboard and gets to it!!!!

Thoughts from Section 209….Devils/Thrashers, Nov. 1 2008

Well we have lots of stuff to get to here… let’s split this up:

the Good:
— we pounded on a shitty team… long and hard… and all over again… never have I been so exhausted from yelling… HEY… YOU SUCK like I did all second period!!
— Zach Parise… maybe stepping up from good… to elite level??
— defense was decent today (ok it’s only stopping #17, and Brookbank did bite the big one on the one goal…but when you’re up 6.. it’s ok! And he whipped some ass in a fight like 3 minutes later!)
— WE SCORED ON THE POWER PLAY… and they didn’t!!!!
— Kevin Weekes played stellar considering the situation and circumstances….
— Patrik Elias… welcome back to the score sheet (yes there is room for you on there too lil G!)
— Section 209… oh my God… between the bitch fight with drunk Kelly and the other madness tonight… (http://www.youtube.com/crashliner to see the beer bottle plink-o videos!), damn that was fun tonight!
— Zubrus was AWESOME tonight.. and it’s a disgrace people look at the stat sheet for the 3 stars of the game!

the Bad:
— AGAIN.. in a BLOWOUT game… 8:04 for Bergfors…. 8:10 for Vrana… PLAY THE GODDAMN KIDS MORE… even more so when your key players are OUT… it’s a BLOWOUT game… and you just saw Brodeur go down…there is NO NEED to shorten the bench up 6-0!!!!!!!!!
— as if Marty’s injury wasn’t bad enough… it was a TOTAL DISGRACE that our FRANCHISE PLAYER is being helped off the ice (and BTW.. going on his body language it’s a KNEE not an elbow people)…. THEY HAD THE IDIOT T-SHIRT GUY RUNNING AROUND AND TAKING T-SHIRTS OFF HIS FAT BODY AND THROWING THEM TO THE CROWD… and then to make it worse… IF YOU WERE A FAN JUMPING UP AND DOWN FOR A T-SHIRT… LEAVE THE BUILDING NOW… NEVER COME BACK… you are a flat out DISGRACE of a sports fan, FORGET HOCKEY and you never belong at a sporting event AGAIN… period!! (I am serious about this… this is a total disgrace on the team and the fans behalf… yes I bash him and want to play less because I KNOW we need him at his BEST in April, May and JUNE) and I’m going mild on this because they want me to keep my swearing down here… I hate you all who jumped up and I was screaming this at the game… HEY ASSHOLES YOUR FRANCHISE IS LIMPING OFF THE ICE AND YOU’RE PANDERING FOR A T-SHIRT!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!!

Really not much else to say… good luck Weekes on Monday!!!
