The Morning Skate for Monday, November 29

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of WINNING THE FUCKING GREY CUP WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
  • Well Boston lost to the Thrash too, so all of a sudden we don't feel so bad about Friday;
  • Eric Staal had a goal with 3 seconds left to tie the game, but Ovie got the only goal in the shootout in the Caps' 3-2 win over the Canes;
  • Wings sweep the weekend home and home against the BJs in a battle of conference leaders. Wait, Columbus is a conference leader? We gotta read the Western standings every once in a while;
  • If you're in the 514 today and have some time and some blood, why not give it?
While the Grey Cup is awesome, on the flip side we have lots of death today as Pat Burns will have his funeral and the loss of the great Leslie Nielsen. We're sure he would want us to laugh tho. Surely you can't be serious?

Leslie Neilsen? Fuck - he was awesome! I picked a bad month to give up sniffing glue. (yes, I know that wasn't his line.)

Funny cat, may he R.I.P.

Good luck to the Als' AC.

Holy fuck, it sure is quiet around here. Everybody sleeping off their Grey Cup hangovers?

Now that I'm living in the CoTU, one of my more enjoyable pastimes is listening to my team-mates moan about how horrible it is to be a fan of the leaf. This weekend was a banner weekend for that.

oh, and I've been thinking a lot about gladiators the last day or so...

Real death and virtual death, TVshack got killed for the second time with the full force of the US government behind it. How long before the Bruins and the Thrashers and all those southern strategic teams have the full force of the US government behind them.

RIP two great people. RIP more liberty for the living.
