The Weekend Open Thread of Love wants to go to L.A. for some reason

Greetings, earthlings! How ya doing on this fine Saturday? Things are looking bright in the land of TWOTOL. The cool breeze in the air this morning signifies... something.

Alright, let's talk hockey. Ah, uh, hmm. Oh, here's a headline: "Theo Fleury attempting comeback to NHL." BWAHAHAHA. Have a drink everyone! Jacques Martin says he feels younger since he joined the Habs. He also said...zzzz. Man people were right about him being boring. And , and, and...hmmm, not much going on. Here's a topic starter: does JR belong in the HOF?

In other stuff, anyone see the Als game last night? Argos were shut out by the Als D. Shutout! In the CFL! Suck it Tronna. What ya got going on this weekend? Sox-Yanks? (kill me) Golf? (go Weirsy) There's even an NFL pre-season game tomorrow. True Blood is getting good, while Entourage is falling apart. I think I'll make some fresh potato salad today, anyone got a good recipe? You Americans want to talk health care reform? That'd be fun! Please, no violence. It's the open thread of love after all.

Recipes? Now you've got my attention. Check out the website 230 potatoe salad recipes, something for everyone. I haven't been disappointed yet.

@Moey - i use Epicurious all the time, of course. indispensable for cooking

but i am a cook who actually hates recipes. i will mix red potatoes, yellow peppers, some herbs, mayo and mustard and I am sure i will get something good

Here's Sarah Palin's take on Obama-Care:

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."

Sarah Palin is downright evil

Sarah Palin is downright evil


Question: Don't you have to have more than one functioning brain cell to be considered evil? I'm not sure she meets that threshold. :)

According to Puck Daddy, Jaro won some award in his native Slovakia for "Best Goaltender". I think someone needs to post his acceptance speech here...

@ hf29, make sure you cook the potatoes.

Not sure if Palin is evil but I hear she does make a mean Red potato/seal scull salad:

2 pounds clean, scrubbed new red potatoes
1 clubbed seal
6 eggs
1 pound bacon
1 onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 cups mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste

@ GG11 Good one. Hope you didn't give hf29 any ideas.

Also, Tallibunny's Moose Meat Burgers;

- freshly helicopter-shot moose
- bun

HF29 does come from a small sect of power tool using Jews.... Good thing land of the 56k modem isn't far enough north to see Palin's rifle/club shed.

Vintage HF29 said...

@GG11- welcome to the conversation. and I unfortunately did not inherit the power-tool DNA like my bro and sis. i can barely operate a screwdriver.

but i can make a damn good potato salad. it was a hit. the key was the fresh rosemary

"Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane and his cousin were arrested early Sunday morning for assaulting and robbing a cab driver in Buffalo, according to several news sources in that city."


Number31 said...

It'll be worse if they find out it's true, and if they find out he was drunk (as he's underaged)... Oh Kaner...

And EA NHL10 will go into recall to replace to cover.

Imagine if the Kostitsyns had actually done something criminal? They're (women loving party) saints in comparison.
