The Morning Skate for Tuesday, June 15th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of vuvuzelas...
  • The Leafs have a new captain and new uniforms, which uh, look pretty much like their old ones, but with stripes. And a shoulder patch. Fancy;
  • Looks like the Habs will buy out BGL's contract today, when the buyout period starts. Wait, BGL is still under contract?
  • Do you like visual representations of the history of the Stanley Cup Finals and HTML5 experiments? (so basically, this is for me and moeman). Check it out (lap dance to Wendell Semaines for the link);
  • Here's a good cause for you on this slow news day - Five Hole for Food, a cross-country street hockey extravaganza to raise money for local food banks. Please check em out and give 'em a hand;
  • Considering the slow news-ness of the summer for hockey bloggers, we needed something to write about. So yours truly and Wrap Around Curl have teamed up to write about our favourite guilty pleasure, True Blood. So if you're a True Blood fan and/or bored, check out True Blood... or Hockey?
On of these days Jaro or Carey will be traded and the shit will hit the fan around here. Until then, yawn.

Wait, so we raise money for food banks? I thought we gave food to food banks and money to money banks. What do we give to sperm banks? This might explain why I was in court last Thursday. The world changes so fast.

I do have hockey news, btw. I was finally able to pry my PS2 open to get my NHL 2005 out. The several electocutions (I lost count, and heartbeats) were actually worth it. It was like a blowjob for my nervous system. And all it cost me was a few years from my life. The shittiest years.

GYFOG! (Go You Fucking Oranjemen Go!) Oh, and Korea. Whatever.

Hey, what's this sudden Pender for Price crap?

The MayPole Leaves uni now has the building excuse: when they choke, they can blame the neck lace...

I spend my summers on the golf course. Where else do you get see the stars?

GFY (yourself)

.....and Mr. Burke further commented, "if we really wanted to bend the PHans over and PHuck them, we would produced shitty underperforming teams year after year without any hope in sight, all the while PHucking them on ticket prices, concession stand crap food at exhorbitantly overpriced and yes change the sweaters ever so slightly that no one will notice it's the old jersey with two lines, a necklace and a shoulder patch added, that way we move the old inventory at new and improved PHuck you prices to our moronic PHan base".

He continued, "next we will be unveiling team colour coded vuvuzelas so as to add to the unpleasantness of attending a Laffs game, these will be a required purchase and added to the ticket prices".

I like that html5 thingy. I knew the habs won 5 in a row in the 50's, but what I didn't know was that they were in the finals for ten fucking years straight. Was there any competition back then? I mean, I know there were only a few other teams, but these days, its amazing to see a team make the playoffs for ten years straight

meh

Am I the only one who's absurdly excited for the Nintendo and Sony keynotes at E3 today...?

moeman said...

Thnx 29, thats is cool code goodness. Neat how the leaf visualisations drops off, permanently, in 67.

Steve said...

I hate to be undiplomatic, but the new Leaf captian looks like he is trying to perfect the look of one of the main characters from the movie `Of Mice and Men`` His first question was `what does the C mean``

Moey said...

Yay! True Blood previews, I love that show too. Eric is hot.

Mr. natural said...

BAH HUMBUG! Everything sucks!

@ezzeloharr, I certainly hope so!

@Steve, more like Simple Jack of Tropic Thunder fame.

@moey, HOLY SHIT YOU'RE A GIRL!!!

That is all, thank you.

@Mr. natural,

Well if you go by Sunday's show he can shag for six hours solid, blowing should be a piece of cake.

@29,

The scene where Sookie was fantasizing about being in bed with Eric. *wipes up the drool*

Mr. natural said...
