The Morning Skate for Tuesday, September 9th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of you drafting Tom Brady in the first round of your fantasy league...
  • See this is why I like TMS, I can bury the Sundin news in it. Mats apparently had a nice positive meeting with Bob over the weekend. Sounds like Bob basically told him to shit or get off the pot. NICE.
Anyone look at a calendar lately? Rookies show up in 6 days, everyone else has their physicals in 9 days, and the exhibition season starts in 13 days. Holy fuck, we might have to get to work around here pretty soon.

UPDATE - As FHF regular JT mentioned in the comments, the RDS report is actually based on her blog report. Which RDS did not credit. But we do. Fine reporting JT.

The return of TMS! The world is once again falling into place. Now if Shaw would get RDS HD, everything would be perfect.

Panger, do you have Shaw? Expressvu? What do you do for your RDS fix?

Nice of RDS to quote my blog without credit. Hmmm...I wonder if all their sources are that sketchy?

fezworth said...

Ok, TMS has already been back for a day. I'm not paying attention :P

J.T., don't you find that quote of Gainey's vaguely reminiscent of his and AK27's 'walk on the boardwalk' from last year?

"... But if you're not sure, you should play and the emotion will come."

Sage advice, I'm sure.

@fezworth: I've got Shaw, so I'm in the same boat. Supposedly it takes forever to get new HD channels with Shaw, so I'm not holding my breathe for either RDSHD or TSN2

Seriously JT, RDS "reporting" is questionable. At least Boone gave you props, which we have now done as well

Also, I blogrolled you over on the right. Don't know why you were missing before

J.T. said...

Thanks guys. Oh, and I'm a chick.

jeebus more chicks reading our little misogynistic stripper-fest?? awesome

it's pretty amazing / sexist how i always just assume sports bloggers are men until i hear otherwise. i think i called Loser Domi "him" for a month or two. i think there's a PhD theseis in there somewhere...

J.T. said...

That's okay, 29. I have an androgynous handle so people don't dismiss "female" opinions out of hand. And I love your blog because there's something for everyone...strippers for you and Jaro for me! Although it wouldn't hurt you to throw us chicks a bone once in a while and post some Kovy training video or something. :)

Fezworth: The Gainey/Sundin chat reminds me a LOT of the Kovy walking chat from last year. When Bob's tired of being a GM he can open Gainey's Counselling Centre for Aging Jocks.

I've met J.T, and she is, most definitely a chick - just in case a source for confirmation is needed. Can't trust much anymore these days!
