The Game Day Skate for Thursday, December 3rd

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of your alleged mistress even though she denies it having a press conference...
  • Gui! has a big game, helps the Wild win in OT;
  • In a battle of potential #1 Canadian Olympic goalies, Luongo beats Brodeur. Big time;
  • Savard, flush with a new contract, helps Boston beat the Bolts;
  • Speaking of contracts, the Blackhawks will announce the long-term signing today of Kane, Toews, and Keith. Kane and Toews each getting $6.3 mill per year. Compare that to Scott Gomez' contract. Tear your hair out.
Buffalo tonight. Continuing death spiral or start of a turnaround?

Checks 'death spiral' box.

Chicago smells like cap problems...

Death Spiral, Death Spiral!!
Also worried that a fire sale is our future? I mean its not Terana (eastern Ontario way of saying "the big smoke") for the last 30 years bad but...
Not that he was worth much more nor that anyone would like to come play for us right now but why is B.G. only sending guys away? Molson has money right? I gave them LOADS over that last 15 years.

@31 They also smell like Stanley Cup!

@10 (from the rant thread)
Fuckstick has just replaced fucktard as my favorite word ever.

I was either not born, too young or out of the country for most of the "memorable" moments.
I get to live with death spirals and fucksticks.

time to raid the medicine cabinet

@10 (from the rant thread):
I'm dispappointed in the number of fucks and/or other relavent expletives in your reply to 'disappointed'.

And, I agree with GG on this. Fucksticks. Nice. My mental imagery shocks me at times, but makes me smile like a dork as I sit at my desk. And people walk past asking "Why the stupid grin?". Happens a lot as I read this stuff.

Decision time. Watch the Habs get Buffaloed or watch Dances with Wolves, where the buffalos lose big time IIRC.

Dress rehearsal for the Xmas concert tonight.
Will be missing the game.
This usually pisses me off... not tonight!!

I'm still bitter about tomorrow, though. I plan to find a sports bar of some sort near the Bell Centre and watch the 3rd period from there, while waiting for Mr. LG77 and his best man to be done with the game. Sniffle.

I like the idea of Death Spiral. Certainly takes the pressure off. I refuse to advocate tanking, however. I want this damn team to kick some ass but seriously doubt its ability to do so.

WF - unessess. Was I unessess-arily harsh on Gomez? Maybe. Don't fucking care.

lawyergirl77 said...

10 - totally agree with you re: death spiral. I actually like these guys and I want them to do well... but I'm not sure that they can, given this mix.

Personality-wise, BG's Great CHemistry Experiment seems to be working, but being a nice group of guys does not equal a top-tier hockey team. (Question of the day: does one preclude the other?)

Kmaxx said...

Oh man...I'm dreading this but there's still a lot of hockey to be played this season so here it goes...

go habs go...

Sorry - not feeling optimistic enough to put it in caps.

Moey said...

Because they're the Habs and it's what they do, they'll turn this around to taunt us and give us hope. The true death spiral will commence in it's usual month, February.

L Dude said...

Death Spiral is PERFECT for this bunch of pansies! I've never watched a more gutless, no-heart effort than I did Tuesday night. For the love of Dog, by the middle of the 3rd, somebody should have at the very least been trying to pick a fight, show SOME emotion, something, anything! So yeah, Death Spiral - a figure skating term fits this team! Maybe we should look at signing Craig Simpson and Jamie Salé. Well, at least Jamie. Our biggest pussy of all- Pebbles, can spin her...

That's one pretty fucking awful nightmare.

Poor Tiger.

soperman said...

Be careful with the Death Spiral shit. Those sucking Leaves went into a Death Spiral 42 years ago and now they feel good because they found a goalie who should be nicknamed "the difibrulator". (too soon?)

GoldenGirl11 said...

@eye
Poor Tiger? I mean really. Poor Tiger? Poor cheating, rich, fuckstick Tiger?? I may be a soft porn Photoshopper but I think I speak for all women when I say to all you married men out there ARE YOU FUCKING BRAIN DEAD??? Poor Tiger was stupid enough to stray from his gorgeous wife and innocent kids. Poor Tiger is worth more money than god but couldn't be happy with his gift of a family. Fuck that makes me sick. I hope Tiger's kids are spared the long term consequenses of a fuckstick for a father. Hey Tiger. Keep that putter of yours in your pants and get your family into therapy now. Asshole. Oh and golf isn't even a sport.

soperman said...

But he (Tiger) was given a $164 dollar fine right before Christmas.
How will he buy presents for his wife, kids, mother, caddy and all of his mistress(es?). The financial pain must be devastating.

BTW GG11 I love your work.

eyebleaf said...

Most of what I write is sarcastical nonsense, especially "Poor Tiger." He's an idiot. He's a man.

GoldenGirl11 said...

I figured but I ran with it.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Soperman
Thanks. I'm assuming you mean the pics and not the man bashing rants.

soperman said...

@GG11

Both, the man-bashing rants are hot too.
